The Details on…Loews Hotel Philadelphia

I had the pleasure of being hosted for lunch by the Sales and Catering Staff at the Loews Hotel Philadelphia this week.  Catering Sales Manager Andreea Denes and I are working together on a client’s wedding next year but Andreea wanted to personally meet with me so we could get to know each other better as well as talk about other needs I may have for current or future clients.  My lunch was hosted in the onsite resteraunt Bank and Bourbon, which offers traditional American fare with a unique but modern twist. (I had a really tasty steak salad and I hear their Parmesan Rosemary french fries are delicious!)  Bank and Bourbon would be a great option for Brides and Grooms looking for the perfect place to host a rehearsal dinner, post wedding brunch or even a Bachelorette/Bachelor party dinner (ask Andreea to show you the secret room which would be perfect for hosting a Bachelor Party whiskey tasting!)  After our lunch, Andreea was able to give me a detailed tour of the different event spaces the hotel offers.

The Millennium Ballroom is an over 9,000 square foot space ideal for wedding and events from 150 to up to 400 guests for a sit-down dinner and up to 600 guests for a reception style event.  (This is the ballroom that will host our client’s wedding reception next year.)  What is unique about this space is that it is the original banking level of the old PSFS Bank and highlights the marble and granite walls of the original space, as well as the bank vault and Cartier clock.

The Regency Ballroom is also over 9,000 square feet and can be divided up into 4 sections, if needed.  It can seat 200-500 guests for a sit-down reception and up to 700 for a reception style event or wedding.

There is also the option to use this space for the ceremony and reception space, as there is an over 2,700 square foot foyer area that can be utilized for cocktail hour during a “flip”.   While the Millennium Ballroom would be considered a more modern space, the Regency Ballroom offers a more art-deco look.  (It would be perfect for a 20’s/30’s style or Great Gatsby theme wedding!)

A highlight of the event spaces at the Loews is the 33rd Floor, which sits at the very top of the hotel.  The 33rd floor can be used for wedding ceremonies for up to 250 guests, wedding receptions for up to 150 guests and cocktail receptions for up to 350 guests.  (Our Bride and Groom will be hosting their ceremony and cocktail hour in this space and when you take a tour of the venue, you will see why! )

With windows circling the entire space, wedding guests have views of the entire Center City skyline to gaze at (can you imagine a sunset ceremony?!).  The 33rd floor also offers direct access to the rooftop terrace, offering both an indoor and outdoor flow as well as breathtaking photos for your photographer to capture.

The Loews also has two other wedding ballroom options – Commonwealth Hall is an over 6,000 square foot space, perfect for wedding ceremonies and dinner and dancing for 150 to 300 guests.  For a smaller or more intimate wedding, the Washington Room is a little over 3,000 square feet and can host up to 150 guests for a sit-down dinner and up to 200 for a reception event.  Many of Loews’ clients use this space for their ceremony or even a wedding after party.

Imagine a stress-free wedding day where you have hair and make up done, put on your wedding dress and simply take an elevator to your ceremony and reception.  The Loews offers this level of service and ease to Brides and Grooms and their wedding guests.  The hotels features over 580 newly renovated guest rooms and 12 suites within walking distance of the Reading Terminal, the Convention Center and City Hall (all great options for a first look and wedding photos!).

We are excited to be working with Andreea and her staff for our clients wedding next year at the Loews.  It will be unforgettable event with authentic Philadelphia style and top notch service.  We also look forward to being able to share the hotel as an option to future clients, whether it be for a wedding ceremony/reception, hotel block or rehearsal dinner.  If you are considering a wedding at the Loews, let us know!  We would love to help bring your vision to life!
