Hotel Interiors: Norman Foster and Adam Tihany (Vernick Fish)

Building Aesthetic:

  • Located next to the existing Comcast Tower, the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center rises 1,201 feet (341 metres) as the city’s tallest building
  • Greg Vernick’s restaurant, Vernick Fish occupies the entire northern edge of the building on the ground floor, responding to the city’s active street culture
  • The building’s circulation follows a defined pattern on every floorplate – an internal "street" runs along the centre from the elevators to the eastern edge, where the suites are located; curved corners marking every room door give an impression of generosity of space, a language that continues in the interior layout of the rooms
  • On arrival guests are greeted by the first glimpses of the panoramic views, and the glowing onyx wall of the reception desk; guests are then led through the axial flower-lined canyon towards the Jean-Georges restaurant, Sky High, which unfolds in a dramatic bar and lounge as guests descend a monument staircase flanked by two black stone "water-walls"
  • Jean Georges restaurant is a soaring triple-height space, fully glazed on three sides; the unique pyramid shaped, mirrored ceiling that stretches across the length of entire floor infuses the space with dynamism, reflecting the bustling charm of the restaurant space, while multiplying the views of the skyline at eye level from every corner

Design Aesthetic:

  • Sleekly sumptuous accommodations with a warm palette of materials and bronze tones
  • All the bespoke furniture used throughout the Hotel was designed by the Foster practice
  • All rooms include next-generation Comcast technology for internet and entertainment
  • Captivating floral installations by Artistic Director Jeff Leatham can be found in all areas of the Hotel


  • In the heart of Center City at 19th and Arch Streets atop the city’s tallest tower
  • Easily accessible from the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) – 20 minute drive
  • Guests arriving via Amtrak at Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station have the option to be personally greeted by a Guest Relations team member in the arrival hall, be provided with luggage assistance, and escorted in a luxury town car to the Hotel
