About the Loews Philadelphia Hotel

Loews Philadelphia’s landmark structure was America’s first skyscraper, rising a commanding 33 stories into the air. Using curved glass and bold geometric shapes, it was constructed in the Art Deco period and was home to our country’s first savings bank. Rare woods along with marble and granite from over 30 countries were utilized to dramatic effect, and clocks by Cartier made sure everyone was on time.

From 20 miles away, you can still catch sight of the undisturbed sign of the original owners—The Philadelphia Savings Fund Society—as PSFS glows in glorious red neon. Today, you can still see the imposing bank vault doors in the hotel lobby—an homage to our history and a striking art installation. Read More
