Have you seen that gigantic hole on the southeast corner of Broad and Spruce lately? That’s the future home to the SLS LUX Philadelphia, a 47-story tower filled with 152 hotel rooms and 90 luxury residences. As you know, Philly’s development boom is very real, and we’ve been tracking its rapidly growing hotel scene closely. In other words, brace yourself, the hotels are coming. They’re coming fast and furious.

Here’s a bit of interesting news from The Inquirer‘s recent report from Jacob Adelman, we now kind of know where the SLS will stand in the hierarchy of Philadelphia hotel pricing once it is complete:

“[SBE Hotel Group’s president Arash] Azarbarzin said the SLS Lux Philadelphia will price itself just below highest-end hotels such as the Four Seasons. It will tailor its offerings to what he described as a clique of cosmopolitan travelers who get the brand’s sensibility.”

The Four Seasons, which is going to be replaced by a yet-to-be-named luxury flag, should be open in 2017, when the CITC is ready to go. Look for the SLS possibly in spring 2018.
