Couches and overstuffed armchairs elevate the level of comfort in the spacious Lounge at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia. The Lounge features an all day menu of 'cultured cocktails and cuisine.' Afternoon Tea on Saturday and lavish Sunday brunch make the lounge a popular destination for Philadelphians and visitors alike. A fireplace blazes in winter, while diners overlook the famous Parkway Museums District.

With the Fountain Restaurant now closed, the Swann is not only broadening its menu, but also coming up with some creative and special events around food and wine. Now that it is the "star" attraction at the hotel, it seems much more confident in it's cooking while expanding its offerings. And the prices sure beat the Fountain!

Came to experience the new Sunday lunch buffet, and I can assure you it doesn't disappoint. Service was as expected from a four seasons (notably Chris our server) clear explanation on how things work and the food explanation. As with all buffet, majority of people re fill and re fill their plates, of which staff where always on top in... More

As you can see I have a great many hotel reviews, but none like this. This is the first time I wrote a review about a hotel I didn't sleep in. I was at the Four Seasons for a quick afternoon meeting with people from out of town staying at the hotel. We met in the lounge for a quick... More

I stopped in for a quick drink and dinner, and the staff was attentive and the food was great. Definitely worth checking out if you're staying at the Four Seasons.

Thus event was fantastic for young girls. Service was well done, as was the tea and food offerings (and alcohol for adults if you want).

Sampled 3 of their cocktails (between three of us) and ate grilled salmon and a first class cheesesteak. Excellent and friendly service in a first class bar - quiet even thought there were plenty of patrons there.

For a hotel bar, this was a nice surprise. The bar action seemed pretty lively, but the lounge is large and set up in a way that you can have a quiet drink or meal and not feel like you're in some kind of scene. Staff is excellent, very attentive, and I love the fresh potato chips they send out... More
