Headlines: The Four Seasons is Closed, Replacement to be Announced This Week
We all knew this day was coming. After its legendary restaurant, The Fountain, closed in December 2014, the Four Seasons officially closed its doors over the weekend after nearly 32 years in the game on Logan Square. The Inquirer was on the scene to speak with some of the people who made the hotel an icon: “But for those who built a community around the Four Seasons and its iconic Fountain Restaurant, the transition is bittersweet.”
It’s not going away forever, more like a hotel hiatus. In fact, it’s movin’ on up to the top of the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center in 2018. Host Hotels & Resorts and Sage Hospitality will spearhead a $28 million renovation of the Logan Square property, which will eventually become a revamped 4.5-star hotel.
An announcement about what brand will replace the Four Seasons will be made this week. Here’s our exclusive sneak peek of the new vision for the space. We’ve heard it could open by November.
