The Warwick Hotel Rittenhouse Square

Reviewed May 14, 2014

The most impressive part of this hotel is my room is totally dark with all the curtains down, and very quiet being right in the heart of the city center (1 block away from Rittenhouse Square). Decorations are well designed in both my room and the lobby. The hotel was renovated November 1, 2013 so everything is still brand new.

Only complaint has to be the checkin. I booked through on their official website, and they mistakenly put my reservation on a different date. The front desk asked me to call their corporate office myself. It took me quite a little while. Why didn't the hotel call the corporate office directly for me?

The hardware of Warwick is at 4.5 stars, but the software is a weak 3.5 stars.

Great hotel location. Stayed only one night, the room has everything you need for your stay. The room was clean, the showers were nice and the bed was comfortable. The best part of the hotel is it's location, its right smack in the middle of everything there is to see in the city. If you're up for a little walk in the morning check out Sabrina's Cafe @ 910 chritian street, I had one of the best breakfasts ever there!

Dear kamil n
That was certainly a nice walk you had for breakfast but you found one of our city's hidden gems and found how delightfully walk-able the city is! Thanks for your posting and we hope to see you again.
Sincerely,
Joanne Cunningham, General Manger

We needed to stay in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia and we considered several properties. The Radisson Blu has been recently and beautifully remodeled from its former self as the Warwick Hotel. We had a very reasonably priced, nicely decorated and super spacious room with two double beds. Very nicely furnished room will all modern amenities. The hotel lobby is really unique and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We didn't order room service or eat in the restaurant, but there is a nice coffeeshop in the hotel. We would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: Our room facing Locust St. was very quiet

I stayed here a while back with my wife and 1 year old son, the hotel and staff were excellent. The location of the hotel outstanding, very central.
We stayed on a room only basis, but if you want to save some money on breakfast there is a cracking little diner called little Petes across the road we used 3 mornings!
Amazing stay, thanks

Yes, in addition to the three restaurants on the hotel property you can also find numerous ones all around the area including the diner your mention. I am thrilled that you had a lovely time in our city and enjoyed the beautiful and iconic Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel as well. We hope to see you again - maybe next time in the summer?!

Our industry organization just completed its annual meeting at the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel and we were most pleased with the hospitality and cooperation from all the staff, especially the convention services office. Our group was well received and cared for by all the good folks at the hotel. I highly recommend this location for any organization looking for a terrific location to conduct a conference or business meeting in Philadelphia.

Was I expected ! Staff very friendly (starting with bell boys, reception, restaurant). I ask to change my first room ( to avoid noise from street) and Mr.Wideman made it in few minutes. Very clean, a good breakfast (was buffet with vegetables, eggs, fruits, hot dishes, sweets) and close to metro and bus stations.

Stayed for a week in the Warwick during conference. The location is the major point of this hotel, 10 min from the PCC and in the centre of restaurants and shops. The room (515) was located next to an backstreet, with continous noise of air-conditioning. The room was spacious, but a bit tired. Several electric contact were not working. The bathroom was small. The staff was a mixed experience, some friendly and helpfull, others not concerned.

Room Tip: Try to avoid 515
