The Rittenhouse is a large hotel on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. It is well located and has a lovely staff. The rooms are large and the bathrooms well-designed. It was a first class experience from beginning to end. I loved the Acqua Di Parma bathroom amenities. The decor was a tad bit dated as is the exterior of the hotel,... More

The Rittenhouse is a rare "wow" experience. Drove up and greeted by professional valet and doormen. Part of the space is for residents and the staff know the "regulars" and treat guests with courtesy and professionalism. Same is true at the front desk. My corner suite was beautiful, with a ton of space, a huge bath, sitting area, great desk... More

Our room was really spacious , and beds were very comfortable. They brought cookies and milk for my kids with their names on the plate. They loved that. They also have little robes and slippers for the... More

The Rittenhouse is an elegant hotel with spacious clean rooms (at least mine was) with old modern charm. The exterior is deceiving since its got a 1980s modernish look. The location of the hotel could not be better to explore downtown Philly on foot. While I wanted to go to Lacroix, that did not pan out given the diverse array... More

Please make sure you make a point of joining us in Lacroix on your next visit. It holds its own as one of the best restaurants in the area- including New York. Other options are our Mary Cassatt tea room or Library Bar. Thank you very much for your endorsement of the Rittenhouse. More

We were a little bummed the pool was being worked on but they did offer for us to go to a sports club a few blocks away.

We stayed for an overnight at the Rittenhouse Hotel. We had a deluxe city-view room. It was very large, with a sitting area, and beautifully furnished. The carpeting and room decor was old-world and in mint condition. Bed linens and towels were glorious. The bathroom was large (especially for a city hotel) and seemed newly redone with separate shower and... More

We treat it as a free standing restaurant within the hotel and it certainly stands on it's own in terms of quality and service. Thank you for your kind words in letting others know about us.

I am truly sorry that the remodel of our spa, salon and health club affected your stay. Happily, this work is nearing completion and later this summer we will boast entirely new facilities on all fronts.
