HughE Around Town: Pod Hotel, 201 & Congrats to Locals


Change of name, the former Sheraton Hotel at 17th & Vine, quietly changed names last year, to Philadelphia 201 Hotel. No word on if they’re going to add the name to the top of the building where they recently removed the Sheraton name.

Speaking of hotels, the POD Hotel is well underway, and has reached the planned 11 stories. Seems to be on track for the fall opening as reported. Check out a story here on Curbed Philly.
