We traveled to Philadelphia on a whim and used Trip Advisor as to helping us find a good hotel for a weekend. From the moment we called for a reservation I knew the experience would be great. It was. The room was a queen which would not normally be my choice. I expected a tiny room. The room was spacious... More

I stayed last week at the Rittenhouse and it was a roller coaster ride of lows and highs (in that order). It started with the lows. The reception associate when I arrived in the evening offered me a standard room, even though as a LHW member I should have received an upgrade. When I mentioned this, the associate said he... More

I loved this hotel! From the moment I arrived to the moment I left all I had was extraordinary service. The rooms arequipe large and spacious. My room had a pull-out couch and the bathroom had a tub and separate shower. The location is prime overlooking th square. Bruce from banquets was so sweet and helpful. He gave us a... More

Arrived at hotel for a one night stay in the afternoon after spending the day at Longwood gardens. It was one of the hottest days we have had and the lobby was nice and cool. We received a room upgrade as we had an Amex package. Stayed in suite 720 overlooking the square. Loved the view, the room was spacious... More

I stayed at the Rittenhouse recently for a work conference. On my day of arrival, Obama was in town (and at the hotel) for a fundraiser. Basically, when the President shows up, everything stops. I give the hotel the highest complements for having staff on the street and in the park across the street to usher guests through security and... More

I have stayed at Rittenhouse Hotel before; this time I returned for a brief stay. I was reminded of what a hotel should be. The staff was very friendly and knows what they are doing. Everything was in order and clean. It is very comfortable. I travel a lot and stayed at many outstanding hotel. The Rittenhouse is among the... More

Stayed here on business. Overall, very classy place. Good service, including extraordinary service by housekeeping (e.g., picked up my laundry and put it in a laundry bag they supplied). Health club was well-equipped, clean, and well-lit (actual daylight!) Nice atmosphere, and GREAT location, right on Rittenhouse Square. BUT.... two out of three days, hot water suddenly cut out while I... More

Stayed here for my sister's college graduation. The staff is courteous and attentive. We had dinner reservations nearby and they were able to provide complimentary transportation in a Jaguar XJ. It's in a great location, not far from a large shopping area several streets long/wide. My fiance used the salon for a trim and blowout and raved about the service.... More

This far surpassed my expectations and put to shame the other five star (in another state) that we stayed at last Christmas. Friendly service, clean and very large room that compared more to a suite, well laid out, excellent pool and deck. I just love turn down service that is done well like at this hotel. Just all around excellent.... More

Enjoyed a weekend wedding in Philly and the Rittenhouse was beautiful!! The staff was pleasant and courteous and the room was immaculate. Had a great sleep-the bed and pillows were very comfortable. It is located on Rittenhouse square and in the center of town. Great local shops and restaurants.
