First class property surrounded by the beautiful Rittenhouse Square!
Incredible hotel. Staff were welcoming. It was our 20th anniversary and they gave us many extras that made us feel special. Location was fantastic. Would definitely go back there.
Beautiful, well appointed and equipped hotel in the most desirable area of Philadelphia. The best staff I have ever seen at any hotel!
The truth is that the Rittenhouse seems tired. It could do with a major refurbishment. Four Seasons have just opened a new spectacular hotel just a few blocks away. Very luxurious and state of the art everything. The Rittenhouse will need to up its game to compete.
Great location. Super comfortable room. Amazing shower.
The Rittenhouse is a luxury property of note in Philadelphia, PA and whether for a business or recreational visit, it places you in an idyllic spot in the city while surrounding you with comfort and convenience. While this beautifully designed hotel has an array of amenities that make it a destination all on its own, the location is also part of its appeal.
After all, it sits right on the charming Rittenhouse Square with its gardens and lush trees. It is also within easy walking distance of such popular attractions as the unique Mutter Museum, the stunning City Hall, the shops of Walnut Street and the city’s downtown district. Yet, you are also within easy reach of the UPENN campus across the river, the famous Museum of Art and the Zoo, and historic Liberty Bell Center in the oldest part of the town. The Philadelphia Airport is less than seven miles away and public transport is just a short walk, too.
Yet, the property itself boasts such an impressive list of services and amenities you may not wish to stray very far. There is a premium health club, a sauna and steam room, and the indoor pool. The signature Rittenhouse business center is available as well as a coffee shop in the lobby, overnight shoe shine, and luxurious Jaguar driver services from the hotel itself. There are round the clock concierge and room services, the Library Bar with free drinks, and even a salon. Four restaurants, a gift shop, and pet-friendly policies are also part of the appeal.
The Rittenhouse rooms and suites are all the epitome of refinement and include luxury linens, premium electronics, hot beverage stations, Wi-Fi, mini-bars, and spa-like baths.
