There are a number of negative reviews about the RC in Philadelphia, but wage lobby is a restored incredible old Bank, whose lobby is a huge rotunda - the size of the Pantheon. Beautiful entrance, bar and cozy breakfast area to the side.
The rooms are nice, although we were upgraded to a suite for a special occasion, nice move by the check in team. Add a glass of champagne during check in and it was a nice start.
We went to the spa, which is completing renovations. Enjoyed a very nice massage, although there was street noise evident during the spa stay. Sound proofing the rooms should be a priority for the Spa management.
I would not say this is the nicest Ritz I have stayed at, but the location is prime, and the historic building impresses.More
