We were at the Rittenhouse for three nights to attend a wedding also held there. We had stayed at this hotel many years ago and we were thoroughly impressed. When we arrived we were taken to our room which was spacious and had a great view of the park. We needed a small refrigerator which was delivered quickly. We were told that this was a newly renovated room and other than new wallpaper it was hard to tell. There was not one wall hanging in the room and the bathroom while average was clearly not renovated. My biggest issue was the valet parking. We were told to give them 10 minutes to retrieve the call. I had an early appointment and called for my car as requested. When I got there my car was not there and there were no staff to talk to. After a few minutes someone arrived blamed it on the "night crew" and it took another 15 minutes for my car to be retrieved. In a first class hotel this level of service is unacceptable. Needless to say I was late for my appointment. After bringing this to the attention of the front desk they did apologize and waived one of the valet charges. Other than a few lapses in service it is still a first class hotel and the wedding was beautiful.
