Fun Things To Do With Kids Visits the Loews Philadelphia

Lobby of Loews

If you are like my family, winter is always hard to get through. We constantly seek new adventures to get us out of the house. Pre-covid, we would sometimes hop on the train and head to the city to grab a bite to eat or explore Philadelphia. Since covid we have yet to return to the city for some fun. As we were researching our options we learned about the Loews Philadelphia Warm Up and Save package .

View from our room

If you're in Delaware or Chester County, hopping on the train at any suburban station is not as difficult as it seems. And in most cases, you don't even have to buy your ticket ahead of time. Train conductors now take credit with the tap of your phone. Just make sure when heading to Loews you get off at Jefferson Station. 

When arriving at the Loews hotel, you know you are in for a very hip and luxurious time. This art deco-style hotel takes inspiration from its history as the former money center for the elite as the old Philadelphia Savings Fund Society (PSFS) building.

Our check-in was easy, and the staff was courteous and helpful. Loews welcomes kids and families all the way down to the family pet. They believe in making memories with your loved ones. Loews Philadelphia has partnered with HelloBello and Little Spoon to provide kid-approved amenities in their hotel and restaurant. It always makes my children feel welcome when a hotel has something special for them.

Grand Room

Our room was on the 30th floor and was called a Grand Room, a recently renovated corner room. This style room offers spectacular 180-degree views of the city. All of the guestrooms at the Loews Philadelphia have all been recently refreshed. The bathrooms now have porcelain mosaic tile, polished nickel, and stand-up showers or low-profile tubs. 

Tent for kids

As part of the Warm Up and Save Package, our room had a Kids Cozy Camping tent, which consisted of a pretend campfire, marshmallows, cups, and plates. This will keep your kids entertained the whole time they are in the room. 

Bank & Bourbon

The Loews Philadelphia has on-site dining at Bank and Bourbon, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The hotel lounge is where guests mingle, relax and unwind after a day in the city.  While unwindinging after long day of checking out the city try the Free Spirited by Loews program. As one of the pioneering hotel brands to embrace the growing trend of mindful consumption, Free Spirited by Loews at Loews Philadelphia Hotel will provide elevated and bespoke bar programming for those who choose to imbibe less or not at all.

As an added touchpoint, Loews Philadelphia Hotel and Bank & Bourbon have seamlessly integrated these specialty cocktails into its standard cocktail menus, with each drink clearly marked by an icon denoting its low or no ABV content. This thoughtful approach ensures that individuals seeking alternatives to traditional alcoholic beverages have access to a wide range of options while providing complete transparency and clarity. By incorporating these distinctive indicators directly onto the menus, Loews Philadelphia Hotel ensures all beverages are crafted with the same attention and care.

The lounge has drinks and snacks for you to enjoy. There is also a grab-and-go area called POD Market. You can pick up pastries from many local favorites, including Metropolian Bakery or a cup of coffee from La Colombe Coffee. You can also order room service, which we did for breakfast. We got muffins and the kid's French toast, a decent size for a kid's meal. Everything was delicious.


The Loews Philadelphia also has Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Salon and a fitness center. So you can fit in a quick workout, relax with a massage, or even get your hair styled.

You might be asking what else can you do in the area. The hotel is right next to Reading Terminal Market, the Philadelphia Convention Center, City Hall, the Fashion District, and more. Since you are in Center City, you are within walking distance of many of the historical attractions in Philadelphia. 

If you haven't been to Center City with the family in a while, it might be time to explore the area again. The Loews Philadelphia is really a family destination to check out. The accommodations were beautiful; the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was easy to get to. Add in a visit to one of many exceptional restaurants in the area, and it is also a great option for a romantic getaway for parents and couples. Hopefully, you and your family can visit Loews Philadelphia so you can make memories, too.
