This was the sixth year in a row my Sweetie and I have spent T'Day at this most wonderful hotel. It is exceptionally beautiful at this time since all holiday decorations are up, both outside and inside. It is located on Rittenhouse Square which includes a great park surrounded by restaurants and stores. The hotel is staffed top to bottom with friendly people who go to great ends to make all visitors feel comfortable and welcome. Accommodations are quite large with comfortable beds and furniture. All rooms have been updated within the last year. This is an upscale, high end hotel but well worth the expense if you like to walk in the park, dine at great restaurants and go shopping. This is a very safe area of the city as well. We'll be back next year, Lord willing!

Just spent a few great days at the Rittenhouse..our go to place in Philadelphia.
It's overlooking charming Rittenhouse square and has a quintessential Philly feel!
We stayed in a spacious suite with a park view and our kids stayed in an adjoining room.. The recently redecorated rooms are elegantly appointed and the staff is so nice, warm and always helpful. The general manager, Reginald Archambault, is always incredibly accommodating! The spa is great and room service terrific. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Philadelphia!

From check-in to check-out my stay was wonderful. The staff are friendly and helpful and happy to make suggestions on things to see and do, as well as delicious places to dine. The room I had was lovely - very spacious and clean. Service outstanding. I can't fault them.

My daughters and I went for an afternoon tea. What a lovely afternoon we had with champagne and several choices of teas and the finger sandwiches and desserts were excellent. Beautiful garden off the tea room and they had a very nice young lady playing the harp, which helped make the mood quiet and peaceful. Service was fantastic and it was first class all the way. Would recommend it to anyone.

Dear Sally, Thank you so much for joining us fro Afternoon Tea and posting your thoughtful review. Our Mary Cassatt Room is a lovely setting and we serve tea every afternoon from 2pm-5pm. Please be sure to come back over the holidays when we will have the hotel fully decorated, including two home made gingerbread houses featuring iconic Philadelphia buildings flanking the tea room.

This stately old hotel on Rittenhouse Square is still one of philadelphia's best. Yes, it's old, yes, it's not perfect, yes, it's not a boutique property, but it has a great location and very nice service. Complaints are handled well and there were a few of them. Breakfast trays not collected in a timely fashion, phone service not perfect and lastly our suite not made up when we returned after 4pm. But in their defense, someone had put a do not disturb sign on our door unbeknownst to us after our early morning departure. Once made aware of this the people in charge of this came right up and serviced our suite. Room service meals were adequate but the food not always so. I feel that they need a better menu with more choices. All in all, I would return.
