I was here overnight for a wedding and got an upgraded room overlooking the park on the front. Room had a lovely sitting area for two as I thought I might have a guest in. Outstanding comfort. Bed was super comfy. A makeup area in addition to the bathroom. Service was with a smile everywhere. Whoever trains staff does an...

I've stayed in probably over a hundred hotels in my lifetime. I have never paid this much for a room, but I have never had such an incredible room either. If you're rich- not wealthy, but rich stay here. This hotel will meet every standard you could ever think of. I'm pretty sure I was on the same level as...

I have heard great things about the Rittenhouse for many years but never had the opportunity to stay there during my visits to Philadelphia. I just finished a 2-day stay at the Rittenhouse and I must say that it is everything that I had been told—a very nice, very attentive stay. The things that stand out about the Rittenhouse experience...

My husband and I go into Philadelphia regularly for the ballet and theater. We always stay at one of the hotels on Broad Street close to the Academy and the Wilma. Last month I was unable to book a room at our normal hotels, so booked the Rittenhouse instead. If you want truly stunning rooms, pampering staff and gorgeous views,...

We were given a corner room, high above the square. Very comfortable, extremely quiet with top of the line amenities - all at a very reasonable rate.

We were "bumped" from the Omni Independence Park to the Rittenhouse because the Omni overbooked the long weekend.

The Rittenhouse Hotel is an excellent choice. The service is impeccable ,the rooms large and the staff most accommodating. Located on Rittenhouse Square, the location is quite charming and just a mile from most art museums. Our last stay was about five years ago and there has been some telltale wear on the furniture. That is something that the management...

The hotel is perfectly located in central Philadelphia (be sure to ask for a park view) but doesn't quite provide the luxury experience for the price. The bathroom was quite small for the room size, with no tub, no separate toilet space and only one sink. The shelf is too small in the shower enclosure and there is no seat...
