The hotel in Philadelphia has introduced a new lineup of amenities and design upgrades spearheaded by AKA vice president of design Nicholas Cardone.
Updates to the historic property include a soon-to-debut private library curated by architect Stephen Potts as well as a new seven-seat cinema. Additional new spaces will include a 15-seat private conference room and a fitness center updated with new equipment and access to the Sporting Club at the Bellevue.
Elegant design enhancements were made to the onsite residences to better promote leisure and tranquility. The newly revealed second-floor penthouse suite overlooks a tree-lined view of Rittenhouse Square Park. Cardone’s refresh places a new emphasis on distinctive detailing, natural materials, and an inviting sense of energy.
