PHILADELPHIA, PA, July 25, 2019—The Philadelphia Marriott Old City today announced it now is open and welcoming guests as the city’s newest hotel in a flag-raising ceremony celebrating its conversion from the former Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill. 

Operated by PM Hotel Group, one of the nation’s leading hotel management companies, the hotel has completed phase one of a multi-million dollar, total renovation, including the city’s introduction to the new elevated concierge lounge experience, M Club.

“This hotel has been an important member of the community for more than three decades,” said Jeremy Costa, hotel general manager.

The redesign will take place throughout the entire hotel.  Phase one has just completed and includes a total reconfiguration of the lobby to upgrade the guest arrival experience and to create a new, all-day dining experience and stylish bar area, Society Commons. 

The area features local spirits and brews, as well as a coffee and juice bar.  The revitalized lobby area also will include the introduction of the new M Club.
