HOD10 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel.

The Loews Philadelphia Hotel, also known as the Philadelphia Saving Fund Society Building or PSFS Building, is a skyscraper in Center City, Philadelphia. A National Historic Landmark, the Loews Philadelphia was the first International style skyscraper built in the United States. The building was built for the Philadelphia Saving Fund Society in 1932 and was designed by architects William Lescaze and George Howe. The skyscraper’s design was a departure from traditional bank and Philadelphia architecture, lacking features such as domes and ornamentation. Combining Lescaze’s experience with European modernism, Howe’s Beaux-Arts background and Philadelphia Saving Society President James M. Wilcox’s desire for a forward thinking, tall building the skyscraper incorporated the main characteristics of International style architecture. Conversion of the building into a hotel began in 1998 and the Loews opened in 2000, quickly becoming on the region’s most spectacular hotels and destinations.
