Concierge.com's insider take:

Philadelphia's only hotel with an inner courtyard, the Four Seasons has a country-club-in-the-city ambience. Indulgent staff members treat guests like members—even children get milk and cookies at bedtime, and pets are pampered with fresh-baked biscuits and silver bowls of Evian water. The 364 rooms were renovated in 2005 to reflect a clean-lined, contemporary version of Philadelphia's signature Federal style, with Schumacher toile draperies and a color scheme of chocolate and butter yellow. Technological advances were also introduced: High-speed Internet and wireless connections are standard throughout the building. Naturopathic holistic skin and body care is the guiding philosophy at the spa; treatments include a massage that incorporates steaming towels steeped in aromatic herbs and essences. Executive chef Rafael Gonzalez oversees the French-influenced, contemporary American Fountain Restaurant (where dark wood paneling and modern furniture complement stunning views of Logan Square), as well as the less formal Swann Lounge.

On Logan Square, this U-shaped granite property with a brick driveway "is in the middle of the city but the garden is a quiet haven." Rooms contemporize Federal style decor using mahogany furniture, satinwood veneers and watercolor paintings, and have large windows with views of the hotel courtyard, Logan Square, or the broad Ben Franklin Parkway. Fountain Restaurant "deserves the wonderful reputation" for its regional dishes.
