We reserved a room at this hotel so that my husband could attend a medical conference. As a precaution, my husband took a Covid test on the evening before. To our surprise, he tested positive. We called the hotel immediately and advised what happened. They said someone would speak to us about it the next day. They refused to refund our money, charged us for 1 night stay and gave us a gift certificate for the rest of the stay. I contacted corporate and asked for a refund, They wouldn't even consider it. In this time of Covid when hotels are encouraging you to book without fear of cancelling and giving refunds, airlines refund your money (as in this case), the spa at the hotel cancelled my appointment without a charge this hotel demonstrates that they don't care about the health and welfare of their guests and it is apparent their main concern is profit. Absolutely disappointing. I never would have expected a such treatment from a "luxury hotel". So remember, go to the hotel if you get Covid.

I stayed at this hotel for a family wedding that was taking place at a venue two blocks away. The hotel has a very nice lobby and bar area where a lot of locals hang out. When I was getting dressed for the wedding I realized that I forgot cufflinks and collar stays. The concierge James luckily had extra for me which saved me a lot of time going out and buying a new pair. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Philadelphia, it is close to great restaurants and other attractions.

The Ritz in Philadelphia is always wonderful every time we go. From the valet guys to the front desk to having a cocktail at the bar it is always top-notch service and friendly hosts. The rooms are always clean and spacious, and our room service delivery guy is always the best too. We will continue to only come here every time we visit Philly for fun with the kids or date night for just us. Would highly recommend.

I was unimpressed and underwhelmed. To me, what denotes a five star stay is the details and our room just felt very outdated and dilapidated. We had a cabinet that was broken with a door skewed and ajar, the clock wasn't set to the correct time, the iron had rusted spots. Though we had a double room, there was one mediocre robe and the same toilet paper you might find in a gas station bathroom. The lobby was beautiful and I enjoyed the drinks we ordered in the hotel restaurant. However, I also ordered the Bone In Filet Mignon and felt it was a waste. TBH- I have had better steaks for half the price at chain restaurants and this one was nothing to write home about. I just didn't feel the quality was where it needed to be for the price point. We had additional friends joining us and asked if we could move to the couch (this was at like 4:30 so the restaurant was still empty) and were told it was only for large parties. However, throughout the night we saw multiple parties the same size as ours, get seated there which we found interesting... We got room service the following morning and it was adequate, but not exceptional. There was no one there to open the doors or help us bring our bags in. We kept joking that we must be staying at a Ritz-Carlton Outlet Store the whole time. If you're looking for a five star experience, I would advise you to look elsewhere.

We have stayed here a few times recently and it has definitely gone down hill. The room upon arrival was ready so they said until we got there then had to move as it wasn't ready. The rooms need to be updated.

If it were not for Mimoza and Ben the Chef, in the Club Lounge we would have changed hotels. This RC is tired and there is a real disconnect between the various functions. On check in, got handed a cars and left standing there. Had to ask someone else directions and then get someone to get our bags to our room. On 29th floor, view pretty good but problems with shower water pressure and temperature... tempermental. Organise wake up that comes with coffee, never happened. Came back into the room after a day put and the room.had not been cleaned.. .. apparently you need to organise room clean each day... in the welcome letter we never got. In some cases you were not sure who was staff and who was not.... seems to have little pride in overall staff appearance and uniforms... no lapel label for example to identify name or they were staff. We only had breakfast at restaurant once. Ordered a mixed selection of items and they all came at once, some 30.mins later.. and there was only other person in the restaurant. This hotel needs a shake up. Its such a shame that a great building is downgraded by a tardy and tired hotel. Not really a Ritz Carlton standard hotel at all.

Came with family for a Saturday evening stay. As we pulled up, no one at the door offered to help us with our bags, so we had to carry our bags up the stairs ourselves. The room was impressive, much better size than anticipated based on pictures and for being in the city. It’s fortunate that the room was large, because it’s where we had to spend leisure time due to the club level being closed and the entire lobby occupied by the bar, with hostess seating required. When we arrived back for the evening hoping for a nightcap, we found a completely packed lobby/bar with no available seating. The hostess informed us we could stand at the bar- not what we were expecting and no other alternatives offered. This forced us back to the room; we ordered room service, and the staff were quick, courteous, and attentive. At check out, there was no one standing by the door to help us out, so we again had to carry our luggage down. Overall we paid for a nice room, but didn’t receive the service or amenities expected from a Ritz. Having stayed at other locations, this definitely disappointed.

Not the typical Ritz experience… Spend the extra money… stay at the Four Seasons. Last night I experienced the worst cocktail at the hotel bar. After attempting to order something else the bartender did try to correct the drink by overwhelming it with simple syrup. He didn’t bother to try any attempt at service recovery— perhaps because it was new year’s eve and they were overwhelmed at 6pm or didn’t care because, despite being paid guests, didn’t purchase an armband for the upcoming celebration? Arrived back to room at midnight on a Saturday. The bellhop staff was too busy congregated and chatting outside to acknowledge us or open a door. The front desk was void of any lady or gentleman. The room did not have nightly turndown service (we left the room around 6:45 pm) and this is a common service at most Ritz or Four Seasons properties. I’d be reluctant to suggest that my company continue to place executives in this location. Finally, my reservation says club access but when I inquired about it, the front desk gentleman said that was an extra fee. So why does my reservation say otherwise? I’ve never experienced this inconsistent service level at any Four Seasons property.

Other than a bad breakfast experience I was very pleased with this hotel. The service, aside from breakfast, was very good. Our room was large and had nice views, even from the bath tub. Lobby is impressive and everything in the room worked. No street noise , at least not on the 22nd floor. If only breakfast in a very nice setting just off the lobby had not been so slow and so poor I would have rated this higher. Not the best Ritz I have stayed but very well priced given its location.
