The Four Seasons Hotel that overlooks Logan Square on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway officially closed its doors today after more than 30 years of operation.
No longer under the management of the luxury resort chain, the hotel will undergo a large renovation project and reopen sometime after the fall of 2015 under the control of Sage Management.

Four Seasons expects to open a new hotel in Philadelphia in early 2018, according to the company's website. Their new digs are planned for the upcoming Comcast skyscraper set to be completed by 2017, according to Philly.com.
CBS Philly reports that many frequent customers of the hotel showed up to say their goodbyes Friday. In December, the hotel's revered Fountain Restaurant served its final supper, set to become a location for the steakhouse chain Urban Farmer.
On Friday, the hotel tweeted a video that recounted the Four Seasons' presence in Philadelphia over the past 32 years.
