Recently, I stayed at several hotels in downtown Philadelphia. The Rittenhouse hotel is the best by far. I (traveling with my dog) was greeted warmly and efficiently by the bellman. The staff at front-desk and the concierge were also courteous and friendly. The room was spacious, comfortable, bright and clean. The location is very convenient. Overall, an outstanding hotel that... More

We were there a week ago and all was perfect. The room (park view) was quite spacious and cosy, well equipped, the bathroom beautiful, nice amenities. Staff was incredibly courteous and helpful. Breakfast at the "Lacroix" restaurant is really delightful. As per location, it is really perfect near the city hall, lots of restaurants, a big bookstore, the park, the... More

I started staying at the Rittenhouse nearly 10 years ago, and have provided reviews in the past on how great the property is. This year, I visited with my two young children for the first time, and also saw the property for the first time since its new ownership. I'm happy to say that the staff is as excellent as... More

The hotel is just in the famous Rittenhouse square, and you can walk everywhere easily. The building hosts also a condominium, and it is actually interesting to see the mix of residents and visitors. They also have doctors studios in the lower floor, an I think some other business. The room was very big, with a comfortable bed, excellent beauty... More

This hotel is beautiful, and the photos online don't do it justice. We were greeted warmly at 12:30 a.m. and given a great room with a park view. Quick check in, which was appreciated since we were exhausted.

Thank you for your helpful feedback. Certainly, the gratuity should only be posted once and those that are included must be highlighted.

We stayed here for 2 nights over the 4th of July weekend. We received an excellent room rate which included valet parking. Internet access was complimentary. The water pressure in the shower was super. The hallways were quiet. The valet and front desk staff were friendly and helped make the stay very pleasant. One minor disappointment was the bed pillows.... More

Elegant, classic, clean rooms. Helpful and friendly staff. In the heart of Philadelphia within close distance to every attraction. Staff was always helpful and friendly whether it was for a restaurant reservation, advanced order of a taxi, recommendations on nightlife. Highly recommended

Every time I stay at this hotel, I wish I could spend more time there. It is a wonderful place, with a nice quiet space off from the lobby for reading and relaxing. NIce courtyard in the back.
