CHEVY CHASE, Md., July 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PM Hotel Group, one of the nation's leading hotel management companies, today announces the opening of the newly renovated and rebranded Philadelphia Marriott Old City in the heart of Philadelphia's most iconic historic neighborhood. The multi-million dollar renovation brings a welcoming, new flagship Marriott Hotels branded property to the area.
"We are always excited when we have the opportunity to leverage our expertise in identifying markets and projects with significant performance upside through repositioning and rebranding. Transitioning this hotel into the re-imagined Philadelphia Marriott Old City will allow the hotel to capture emerging opportunities in the dynamic, resurging Philadelphia market," said PM Hotel Group President, Joseph Bojanowski.
Owned and redeveloped by the Buccini Pollin Group, the 364-room property has received a comprehensive redesign connecting colonial with contemporary, city grid and historic port in one truly unique project. With interiors by Krause Sawyer, enhancements include the addition of a Great Room, M Club Lounge, updated guest rooms and 17,000 square feet of redesigned meeting space. "The design draws inspiration from the local warehouse structures and colonial detailing, industrial elements and artisanal craftmanship to hard-wearing garments and intricate tailoring," said Kajsa Krause and Tracey Sawyer, Co-Founders, Krause Sawyer. "The design narrative is translated into details where raw materials meet refined finishes, where innovative art meets traditional skills and where old and new connect." The property also now features a new Food + Drink concept called Society Commons, which offers a lively all-day space where guests can eat, drink, play and work.
