Philadelphia Zoo Celebrates 150 Years: Stay at the Loews Hotel for a Song

August 21, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Loews Hotel PhiladelphiaSince March 31, 2009, the Philadelphia Zoo-- America's first zoo-- has been celebrating its 150th birthday. They're not settling for just one birthday bash, but instead, they're holding a year-long party to commemorate "an occasion this wild." Here's how the zoo describes the historic year of 1859: "Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species, Charles Dickens published A Tale of Two Cities, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania signed the charter establishing the Zoological Society of Philadelphia--the very first of its kind in this country." Take the fam to Philly and stay at the luxurious Loews Hotel, where we've found room rates for less than $130 on select dates when booking with Five Star Alliance. Housed in the landmark PSFS Building, the first skyscraper ever built in the City of Brotherly Love, the Loews Hotel gets rave reviews for its elegant rooms and personalized service.
