Call it stodgy if you like, but nobody does traditional luxury better than the Four Seasons. This is one of the group’s most celebrated hotels, right on Logan Square across from the Franklin Institute and the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul. There are almost 400 rooms—a third of them suites—and many have balconies that either overlook Logan Square or are turned in to face the graceful landscaped courtyard in the center of the hotel. It’s a popular venue for society weddings, just a short walk from the cathedral in heavily Catholic Philadelphia, and it lives up to its AAA Five Diamond rating with amenities such as Oriental carpets, lavish marble, crystal and wood, overstuffed chairs, an indoor pool for year-round use, a spa and top-ranking restaurant, the Fountain. If you’re eating on the fine-dining side (there is a casual area, too), gentlemen will be expected to wear a jacket—but don't stress, if you don’t have one, one will be provided. Unusual and carefully constructed dishes, such as lobster with a truffled potato galette and sweetbreads with leek millefeuille, appear on the menus seasonally. Even if your budget won’t quite stretch to fit a suite overlooking the square, at least stop into the Swann Lounge for a drink.
