This hotel rightfully earns the Gold medal and our "cool" award, if we had one. Strikingly modern in a sea of Renaissance-era inspired hotels, this renovated bank building is a National Historic Landmark and home to the luxurious Loews. Guests will relish a full menu of amenities at this centrally located property, one block from City Hall and 2 blocks from the convention center.
All 581-guest quarters are attractively furnished in a contemporary style with 10-foot ceilings, upscale baths, and tones of slate gray with pops of crimson. The least expensive rooms contain a queen-size sofa bed only, so ensure you reserve the exact sleeping arrangement you desire. Loews aims to please with free WiFi, Keurig coffeemakers, large work desk areas paired with leather ergonomic guest chairs, as well as sophisticated wall coverings, draperies, duvet covers, lamps and cityscape artwork. And there's 24 hour room service.
The sleek styling extends to the fully-stocked 5th floor Balance Spa and Fitness Center. Cybex and Technogym manufactured equipment dominates this 15,000 square foot space. The equipment is not "brand" new, but the machines' year or two of miles will not hamper any workout. A sufficient supply of free weights and the 12 stack-loaded weight stations are ample for any strength routine.
Swimmers will enjoy the 2-lane x 20-meter lap pool with regulation stripes, a roped lane-line, and abundant light from tall windows. There are also "aqua classes." After your workout, shower in the full-amenity locker rooms and take advantage of Balance's complete offering of spa and salon services.
Joggers should consider our recommended Fairmount Park route.
