We wanted a true philadelphia wedding -- and there was no other place that offers you amazing views from the 33 rd floor and is in the heart of the city. The Loews was a great venue for us--we had cocktail hour on the 33 rd floor followed by a reception for 200 in the millennium ballroom. Amanda Congar and her team exceeded our expectations...she worked with us on all the details and the day and night were perfect. We currently live in NY so having a true professional working with you helps..there was quick follow up with any questions and she offered her suggestions. We had a personalized tasting --the food is incredible and same with the drinks!Sent on 08/15/2014
We had over 70 rooms for our hotel guests that weekend--Sabrina Haney and her team were exceptional to work with.
The Loews helped to make our wedding and wedding weekend just perfect .

The Loews Philadelphia Hotel is absolutely stunning. We used the 33rd floor of the hotel for father/daughter first-look pictures, bridal portraits and a morning-after brunch. You can't beat the views!Sent on 06/18/2015
The morning of the wedding we were given access to a huge hospitality suite on the 4th floor which was perfect for the ladies to get ready in. There was plenty of room for hair dressers, make-up artists and bridal party.
My in-laws had a beautiful and spacious suite which was perfect as a getting ready room for the groomsmen and space to visit with out of town guests. They worked closely with hotel staff to ensure appropriate accommodations during the entire weekend of our wedding.
Our bridal suite overlooked city hall. The view was incredible.

We had our wedding at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel after our original venue canceled about 10 weeks before our wedding. I cannot tell you how glad we were that we ended up there! The hotel is beautiful, the food was AMAZING (we are VERY picky, I promise) and most importantly they were so organized and took care of our every need. Everyone who works there is gracious and helpful, the true definition of hospitality. Lindsay, our coordinator, was fabulous and helped us completely re-plan our wedding in a few short weeks. She really went out of her way to make our wedding special. Also on a technical note, this was a very busy weekend at the Loews and there were several other events going on in and around the hotel but we would never have known! They were able to keep us and our guests separate and we never felt like we were \"sharing\".Sent on 03/14/2014

For those of you who don't want to read some lengthy, detailed review, here's the quick version: Loews is awesome. Adeline is awesome. Done and done.Sent on 10/26/2013
For those of you who want the nitty gritty (hi, brides!) here's the deal. If you want a place that's a well-oiled machine, one that will assist you with every step of the process and flawlessly execute your event from start to finish, look no further. Specifically, Adeline Abdesaken, who was our main contact. I admit that I was a bit nervous going in, as there had been a number of staffing changes at the Loews that had resulted in us bouncing from contact to contact until we landed in Adeline's very capable hands. Once I talked to her, however, any worry I had was gone. It was clear that she knew what she was doing and that she would stop at nothing to make our wedding day perfect, and she did just that. The level of professionalism was incredible- it's easy to tell that they've got weddings down to a science. Adeline and her team had every detail on lockdown. All the guests were commenting on how calm and collected I seemed on the day, and that's 100% because I had this incredible team supporting me. The food, including the cake that was made in-house, was delicious. Because the majority of our guests were from out of town, they all stayed at the hotel for a great block rate. A number of guests commented on how helpful and friendly the hotel staff was. The Loews also decorated the fabulous bridal suite with rose petals, strawberries and champagne, and monogrammed pillowcases! Everything was flawless and I would recommend this incredible establishment to anyone without hesitation.

We had our wedding reception at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in the Millennium Room, and it was amazing. Adeline was so helpful and extremely accommodating - especially since we had to deal with 4 different wedding coordinators before our event. Everything was beautiful and our guests had a great time. The food is amazing at the Loews - usually wedding food is horrible, but their food is great. The hotel also customized our wedding cake for us - which was beautiful! All of our guests couldn’t believe what a beautiful reception it was. The entire event ran so smoothly. I would highly recommend the Loews to future brides and grooms!Sent on 10/23/2013

Thank you to Loews Philadelphia for an absolutely incredible wedding! We are so happy with how it turned out. All of our guests were raving about how gorgeous the venue is, how great the service was, and how much they loved the food. As the bride and groom, we felt so taken care of. I am typically a micro-manager, so it was a huge relief to not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding see that the staff at Loews had everything under control and it was all running smoothly. They made sure all of our other vendors were ready to go and set up. During the planning process, they were a huge help and besides conversing over email, they met with us multiple times to go over details and questions in person. They definitely know what they are doing and are happy to give advice on what works and what to stay away from.Sent on 02/24/2013
We definitely recommend Loews Philadelphia. You will not be disappointed

The Loews was the best choice of our wedding planning process. Cocktails were on the 33rd floor, with awesome panoramic views of the city. Dinner and dancing was in the Millenium Ballroom on the 2nd floor with awesome windows, an old bank vault, marble walls with an old Cartier clock on it.Sent on 07/13/2012
Aside from the gorgeous facilities, the service at the Loews was impeccable. We worked with David Hall, the director of catering. During the planning process, several vendors unaffiliated with the Loews squealed with excitement when I said we were working with David and proclaimed that he's the best in the city at what he does. And, from our experience, he was phenomenal. Every single possible question I had, he had an answer for, reassured me it would all be perfect, and went above and beyond to help make our day special. He had agreed to get several local craft beers for us, including Victory Love Stout, which was not being bottled in April. When he realized that it hadn't come in on the morning of the wedding, he said he called every single beer distributor in the city to try to find it. That's service!
Aside from David, the bartenders, servers, and maitre-d were all fantastic, and everything ran smoothly --- even transporting 200 guests 30 floors down from cocktails to dinner.
While Loews certainly is not an inexpensive venue, we felt the cost was extremely fair for the quality of the facilities, the extraordinary level of service, and the quality of the food and beverage. I would highly recommend.

We did not get married at the Loews Hotel, but we arranged for our guests to stay there and we are so happy we did. Nikoletta was my main point of contact in setting up the room block and she was fabulous to work with, answering all of my questions and concerns in a very timely manner. She also called to check on us the day of the wedding which was very thoughtful and there was a treat for us in our room when we came home from the reception! Our guests commented how friendly the staff was to them all weekend. After our reception, we hung out at the bar at the hotel and had a blast! I would highly recommend the Loews Hotel for guest accommodations!Sent on 02/18/2012

The Loews ended up being the perfect place to have my wedding. I absolutely LOVED having it there. Even though I wasn't having a million dollar wedding, the Loews made me feel like I was. I thought the cost was worth it for what we received and how we were treated. And it wasn't nearly as expensive as some of the other venues we had looked at. The food was excellent and we received so many compliments on it. David Hall was great to work with. He was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole planning process. David and his staff worked with us to make the vision we had for the wedding a reality.Sent on 10/11/2011

We can't say enough about our amazing experience at the Loews Hotel. We had both our ceremony and reception there, plus filled about 50 rooms with out-of-town guests. David Hall was nothing short of spectacular to work with. Our guests are STILL raving about the incredible service they received their entire stay. From our rehearsal on Friday night thru our brunch on Sunday morning, not one detail was missed. The Millenium Ballroom is just such a unique space, and cocktails on the 33rd floor were a true HIT! If you have a chance to get married here - JUMP on it. Just a wonderful experience for both of us.Sent on 08/10/2011

We LOVED our venue. Not only was it the most beautiful hotel we saw in the city, but it was also the most reasonably priced. The food was amazing and David our point man was so accommodating. This is a venue that really takes pride in their service and their special touches. I have such great memories and would recommend the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia to anyone looking to throw an elegant event. These people know what they're doing is their customer service is unsurpassed.Sent on 04/21/2012

Excellent service. David our contact person made us feel comfortable and taken care of. The entire team at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia did everything to make our day perfect -- from the cake to the room to the special touches. Not only was the Loews the most perfect venue for our style (modern, huge windows, great food and accommodations) but it was also the most reasonably priced. They really "faught" for our business. It's clear they take pride in their customer service. The entire team there, helped make our day so special. Thank you!!!Sent on 04/21/2012

We chose to have our reception at the Millennium Ballroom at the Loews. It was the first place we visited that we could actually visualize having our reception there. The room is not your typical four walled ballroom. 3 out of the 4 walls have windows across them and one wall is white marble with a Cartier clock. We chose to have our reception at 7:30pm (cocktail hour) so our guests could see the city lights out of the windows. This ballroom transforms at night!Sent on 10/14/2009
We truly feel so lucky to have held our reception at the Loews. The base price of the event also covered the brunch the next morning at the top of the Loews Hotel with amazing views of the city.
Because the reception was at a hotel, our out of town guests were able to just pop upstairs to their room after the event was done and then join us for breakfast the next morning before heading on their way.
The staff helped us with every element of the wedding from start to finish and we couldn't be more thrilled with the quality of service we received.

We had our reception at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in June 2016. We worked with Amanda and her team from the beginning and had such a pleasant experience with the hotel and staff. Loews goes above and beyond to make your wedding day is everything you imagined it would be and more. Amanda was our primary contact but couldn't be onsite that day, so Elizabeth took over and the transition went seamlessly. She also helped coordinate a post wedding brunch the next day. We also had a room block and worked with Sabrina and her team. Our guests couldn't say enough positive things about the hotel and the staff onsite. Everyone was so friendly and even when we had small requests for things they forgot to do, they made sure to correct it right away. My biggest suggestion is regarding onsite parking if any future couples are considering hosting the parking onsite in the garage - make sure to over communicate with Sabrina and her team beforehand to ensure the parking goes on the master bill and not guests individual room bills before they check out. This was an issue for us, but was one small slip up and didn't overshadow what was otherwise a great event put on by the Loews and all their hard working and friendly staff. Definitely recommend the Loews to any future couples that are looking for a city wedding in a great, central location that also has the convenience of rooms onsite!Sent on 08/28/2016

Breathtaking views, delicious food, and an incredibly professional staff. Elizabeth was my wedding coordinator at Loews and she was so great to work with. She offered great suggestions to things I had questions about and was there to help with every detail. My wedding itself was entirely on the 33rd floor and we had the ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception in different rooms. The event was black tie and the venue fit this perfectly. The views were breath-taking and all my guests kept commenting and taking pictures of the skyline. After attending several weddings with poor weather, we decided to have a wedding indoors that had an amazing view, and this was it! The food was also to die for and we had several vegan guests who also had a lot of delicious options to eat as well. We also had hand crafted signature drinks that were a hit and everyone loved the pretzel fondue station at the end of the night too! Plus we were able to get all our guests an excellent rate through our hotel block for the event, so they enjoyed a 5-star experience all around. We heard from so many guests that this was the best and most beautiful wedding they ever attended! I definitely would recommend this location to anyone that loves the city of Philadelphia and wants a show-stopping wedding.Sent on 12/28/2017

My husband and I are so happy we chose the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia to hold our wedding ceremony and reception! Prior to officially signing our contract, every hotel staff that we spoke to were so friendly and responsive that it made it easy for us to make this decision to go with them.Sent on 10/26/2015
I cannot stress how important it is to go with a venue whose staff puts you first. Thanks so much Loews!!

I very much enjoyed working with the Loews hotel. They were an incredible value and a pleasure to work with. Their customer service was impeccable. We used them as our ceremony, happy hour, and reception venue as well as the hotel for our out-of-town guests. Everyone had glowing reports about the service they received, the location, and the quality of the hotel rooms and food during the event.Sent on 05/30/2013
Most importantly (to me!) they made me (and my parents) feel like a VIP during the entire weekend. I would highly recommend them for future events.

The hotel was an easy pick for us because it is centrally located for our out-of-town guests, close to PATCO, and relatively close to 30th St Station. Plus, if you need anything, you can walk or uber almost anywhere within 15 minutes: barber, convenience stores, clothes, plenty of food, etc. The hotel had the most affordable room rates that we found, and were pretty easy overall to work with. We got a governor's suite for a good price, and a day room for the guys to get ready in. That was great because it offered a ton of room for us. They were also able to store our anniversary wedding cake for the night, which was a huge help. They were able to dispense non-individualized gift bags for free as well, although not every guest got one (a couple were missed). All service was friendly. The gym was well-equipped, but the spa was unfortunately closed for repair. The bar makes tasty drinks and the lobby has an outfit of La Colombe, which was really helpful. The hotel also provides a lot of nice services like quick shoe shine, laundry, etc. which is great for any touch ups. The hotel is clearly designed for business customers, which translates well for a wedding with the amenities. The hotel can also host weddings as well.Sent on 08/22/2018

I spent a pretty penny on my wedding at the Loews Hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel never gave me the feeling that my event was valued. We went through 3 different catering managers, one of whom disappeared from her position without even notifying us. We eventually landed with their conference catering manager for our wedding, Adeline Abdesaken. She was amazing and VERY responsive, which was a nice change from previous contacts. The billing dept was a little slow, I had to call a few times to receive different bills. Unfortunately for us, a large amount of checks and money were stolen from our wedding. Our gift table was left unattended during cocktail hour, and I assume this was when money was stolen. If we had a person more experienced with weddings working with us, maybe they would have thought to remind me to assign someone to deal with this. After our wedding, the hotel was not responsive to our concerns. I came down and filed a police report at the hotel. As of now, the security department is not returning any of my calls. They already received their $35,000 from us, so they don't care about our missing money, is the message I am getting. Additionally we purchased 2 cases of Red Bull for the bar and I made up gift bags and baskets for the bathroom. After the wedding, we never received back any of these items that were not used or left over. Other brides have told me that their venue returned everything to them. Aside from that, the venue is amazing and the food was fantastic- 5 stars for food and service. If I could do it again, I probably would have picked the Marriot across the street. They have a very competent wedding manager. Loews just never made me feel that my event mattered to therm, and that is a bad feeling to have on your wedding day!Sent on 07/13/2013

We had our wedding at the Loews in August of 2011. We had heard excellent things about the Loews as a Wedding Venue and also about David Hall as a Coordinator. Unfortunately we did not get David Hall as our coordinator but we figured since David was the Director that all the other coordinators had to be just as good...BOY WERE WE WRONG!!! We ended up with Heather as our coordinator and from the beginning we were a little bit anxious about her because she was really not very responsive at all. We would write her an email or call her and she wouldnt respond for a couple of days!!! Although we were nervous we still gave her the benefit of the doubt...hoping she would pull through on the wedding day...unfortunately we were wrong again. She promised she would be at our rehearsal on the 33rd floor on Friday night and she NEVER even showed up. She promised she would be by my side the whole day of the wedding and I maybe saw her twice the ENITRE DAY/NIGHT! When we were getting ready in the bridal suite, we wanted some water...we called room service...they wouldnt bring it and said contact your wedding coordinator. I called her 2 times and she NEVER called me back!! Finally hours later my bridesmaid was upset about how awful the service was and called the front desk demanding to speak to Heather...when she eventually made her way up to the suite, she apologized for not being around because she was busy with "ANOTHER CLIENT" I couldnt BELIEVE she said this to me, I mean..what was I?? Chopped Liver??? It just went downhill from there....things that were in our contract were not at the reception ( beer we wanted, the monograms were not put on the dancefloor, that we had paid for!!) Then, the captain told us at 11pm that he was closing everything down when our contract clearly stated that we had till 12am!!! I told him this and he said that Heather told him to close it down. I was furious!!! Finally he said the DJ could keep playing but that the bars were going to close. It was very embaressing that my guests couldnt get drinks when the DJ was STILL PLAYING!!! After the wedding we called David Hall to complain and he was very nice and understanding but he stated that we should have asked for him from the beginning! All in All the Loews is a nice place, but make sure you have David as your coordinator because we had such a horrible experience, especially with a luxury hotel that should be giving GREAT service if not Perfect!!!Sent on 09/07/2011
