The new Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center is located atop the 1,121-foot Comcast Technology Center in the city’s downtown. There will be unobstructed views from the 48th to 60th floors at the building’s very summit.
The 219-room Hotel, which also includes new restaurant concepts by Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Greg Vernick, a full-floor spa and wellness sanctuary and extensive meeting spaces, is set to open August 12.
“Guests will be in awe from the moment they step into the glass elevators on their swift journey to the 60th floor sky lobby, as they look out over the unobstructed cityscape from their dinner table at Jean-Georges Philadelphia, or swim up to the edge of the 57th floor infinity pool,” said Ben Shank, the hotel’s general manager.” We quite literally upend the traditional idea of a hotel and provide visitors with breath-taking experiences as they move through venues in our spectacular building.”
Food & Beverage
On the 59th floor is Jean-Georges Philadelphia, a new restaurant by Michelin starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. 40-foot high glass walls give panoramic city views, while a cleverly mirrored ceiling reflects both the diners below and the city that surrounds them.

On ground level, James Beard award winner and hometown hero Chef Greg Vernick highlights his unique approach to modern American dining at Vernick Fish, which spills into the street in an easy indoor-outdoor environment.
Chef Vernick has also partnered with Four Seasons to bring Vernick Coffee Bar to the second-floor lobby of the Comcast Technology Center. A to-go bakery and barista bar, the restaurant includes a full-service 42-seat café.
The hotel boasts more than 15,000 square feet of function spaces, including two ballrooms easily accessed on the fifth floor. There is also a 1,300-square-foot terrace that can accommodate 100 guests.
Technology at the Hotel
Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the new Comcast Technology Center has redefined the skyline of one of America’s most storied cities.
Visitors are soon reminded of the relationship between innovation and nature as they are greeted by stunning installations from celebrity floral designer Jeff Leatham, who is the Artistic Director of the Hotel. Each guest room features Philadelphia Dorian, a composition of on-screen video and sound created exclusively for Four Seasons by musician, record producer and visual artist Brian Eno.
In partnership with Comcast, all guest rooms and suites will offer X1 Video Experience, including approximately 300 channel options and a complimentary library of more than 50,000 movies and shows on demand, all searchable with the X1 voice remote.
Spa and Wellness Centre
Encompassing the entire 57th floor is the Spa. The Spa includes a lifestyle boutique, fitness center and an indoor infinity pool.
