We did an overnight in Philly for my birthday this past weekend and we used our Hotels.com points to stay for free (well, not entirely free, but $30.) It was a perfectly excellent location and the hotel is certainly nice enough, but I'm very glad I didn't "splurge" and spend all of that money out of pocket for this, or... More

Just returned from a week-end at the Philadelphia Ritz-Carlton, and had a somewhat disappointing experience. I called the hotel on two locations leading up to my arrival, and the same individual answered the call on both occasions (hotel operator). I was taken aback at her rude and condescending tone (I wanted to speak with an individual at the front desk... More

Although not the newest hotel, everything was great. Had a great corner room with views of city hall and north. It was our anniversary and they did lots of extra special things for us. My wife had a wonderful time at the spa (almost 2 and a half hours). Bar food was great. Was wonderful to sit in lobby and... More

How have things changed in Philadelphia over the years. The Ritz-Carlton lobby was my bank while in college at Temple, but the change is for the better. The lobby is extremely nice creating a great welcome to the hotel. We enjoyed the drinks at the bar and the complementary popcorn is to die for. We finished off a bowl and... More

When you think of the Ritz Carlton, you have a certain expectation. This hotel just isn't that. The staff is A+, the lobby - STUNNING, the rooms - meh. I agree with the other reviews - the rooms are worn and tired. In fact, I changed rooms after the the 1st room was unacceptable (i.e. the bathroom had a problem).... More

This was my first time staying at a Ritz and I was really excited! This hotel is in a great location! There are so many great bars/restaurant/shops/attractions within walking distance. The staff is phenomenal! Everyone is so outgoing, friendly and professional. The lobby and bar area are stunning. I was a bit confused when I entered my room. The upscale... More

First, the staff, across the board, are noticeably outgoing, friendly and professional. The lobby is beautiful. But once you enter your room, it's hard to believe you're at the Ritz Carlton. The room was worn and tired and highly in need of a major renovation. The hotel's location is great. So I have mixed emotions. I hope they complete a... More

The Ritz Hotel (a new residential Ritz condo bldg is next door) is great rehab of a historic Philadelphia property. It is centrally located and so it is a short walk to Reading Terminal Market, and City Hall is at the end of the block. The staff here is wonderful-and the service is very special. Our rooms were very nice--try... More

I have stayed here a couple of times and have enjoyed each visit. I find the staff very attentive and helpful and not just because they serve me champagne during my 2 minute wait to check in. The rooms are comfortable and offer wonderful views of the city. It is conveniently located and the lobby is just beautiful. I believe... More
