We stayed two nights in the Ritz during the Philadelphia Marathon. It is located in a beautiful historic building and the staff was welcoming. Upon arrival, we asked for a late check out so that my husband could have time to get back to the room and shower after running the Marathon. Unlike other places we have stayed for marathons, the Ritz was extremely accommodating and offered us a check out of 2:00 pm. We were given a room on the 17th floor with a beautiful view of City Hall and the center city. The room was clean and very comfortable but we thought it to be a bit small by today's standards and in need of an update. It could have also used two chairs in the room rather than one. As you enter the bathroom, it is first necessary to close that door before opening the door to the commode room. We wondered why one of those doors was not removed in order to avoid constantly slamming one door into another. If you are driving, it is not necessary to spend the extra money to park in their parking garage. We saved quite a bit by parking in a garage just around the corner.This is a hotel in the downtown area and so be prepared to hear the city noises of traffic and sirens all night. Overall, the location was perfect for the marathon and we loved being able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go. We would definitely stay there again.
