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

I love the Swann Lounge and it is the perfect place for a drink, light snack in the evening, reading the Sunday paper. But, having tea here is my favorite. There are a dozen loose leaf teas from which to choose (pear caramel is worth having) and an assortment of finger sandwiches (smoked salmon, cucumber, apricot with cream cheese) as... More

Went here for Sunday Brunch on Penn's graduation weekend. We had reservations but were asked to wait and have a drink outside on the terrace. We were there a little early, but only 15 minutes. We had a drink on the terrace and then it was after the time that our reservation was to be. So my husband asked if... More

Was ok to dress casually. Lots of space between tables. Noise level was perfect. Great menu too. We joined another family there on a Fri eve and it was ok for us to bring kids and sit around a big table.

We had tickets to see the Beyonce Concert and stayed at the Four Seasons. This lounge is always hopping with good people and the conversation cannot be beat. The best Bombay Sapphire martini can be found here and the best complement would the artisan cheese plate.

I had been dreaming of Four Seasons pancakes as my reward meal after completing my first marathon. Sunday, I did just that, and showed up at the Swann way past breakfast, and even past lunch. I asked our server if they could make pancakes for me that afternoon and without hesitation he said "I'm sure we can whip them up!"... More

My husband and I have been coming to the Swan Lounge at the Four Seasons Philadelphia for over 20 years to celebrate special events. This year has been particularly wonderful because of a young man named Chris with a memorable laugh:) We stayed the weekend for our wedding anniversary and each time we had drinks and snacks in the Swan...
