While we have already reviewed the best Four Seasons hotels in the world and specifically the best Four Seasons hotels in the paradise that is Hawaii, we have not yet covered the highest hotels in the world or in North America. At least, not until now!

The accolade of “North America’s Highest Hotel” has been achieved by the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center, situated on the uppermost floors of the city’s tallest building.

In this new hotel, located between the building’s 48th and 60th storeys, every one of 180 rooms and 39 suites boasts unobstructed floor-to-ceiling views of the city and beyond.

For dining, Michelin starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has chosen Four Seasons for his Philadelphia debut, literally taking his place at the top of the city’s dining scene with the 59th floor Jean-Georges Philadelphia restaurant and the 60th floor JG SkyHigh cocktail bar. Greg Vernick is also part of the Four Seasons culinary team as he unveils Vernick Fish, conceived as a modern American oyster bar, open to the street.

The Hotel’s 57th floor is a haven of health and wellness that includes an enormous indoor pool; a state-of-the-art fitness centre in partnership with Four Seasons Global Fitness Advisor Harley Pasternak; a wellness boutique; and the seven-treatment room Spa at Four Seasons.

Flexible event spaces include the Grand Terrace Ballroom with adjacent foyer and 1,348 square foot (125 square metre) outdoor terrace, the smaller Arch Ballroom on the 5th floor; an easily accessed executive boardroom; and three additional spaces on the 59th floor.

The Comcast Center and the interiors of Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia have been designed by world-renowned architect Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, who has redefined the skyline of one of the country’s most historic cities.
