The Little Pete’s Hotel Project Is Back

A proposal to replace the beloved diner with a Hyatt Centric hotel goes for design review next month.

It’s been a few years since the clouds began gathering over the head of Little Pete’s, one of a dwindling number of 24-hour diners in Center City.

Originally, developers had planned to tear down the diner and a connected parking garage and replace them with a Hudson Hotel. Now they’re moving forward with a Hyatt Centric, and they’ll bring the proposal to the Civic Design Review Committee next month.

The latest plans call for a 13-story hotel with 309 rooms, a bar and restaurant, and a 220-car parking garage. The owners of Little Pete’s told Eater earlier this month that if the hotel plans move forward according to schedule, they expect to be out of the space by early next summer.

The plans have been slow to move so far, though, so don’t count your chicken-salad sandwiches just yet.

Ron Patterson, a lawyer representing the developers, didn’t immediately return a phone call.
