A National Register building, the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel Philadelphia has a look that blends classic style with hip French designs, light colors, and facades that set it apart from the loud look and feel of Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square district. Text-based murals and lights suspended in mid-air adorn the lobby, giving guests an ideal backdrop for a little sophisticated socializing. The hotel is serious about pampering, with an in-room spa menu, an on-site hair salon, and a trio of dining spots that offer everything from artisan cocktails to juicy grills. When evening comes, feel like an exclusive Manhattan club member with the leather seats and live jazz at The Prime Rib's Leopard Room.

  • Free Wi-Fi throughout 
  • Spa services

Neighborhood

One block from Rittenhouse Square, the Warwick's Downtown Philadelphia neighborhood is crammed with architectural gems like City Hall, and an array of dining treats, whether you crave a cocktail from Franklin Mortgage and Investment Co. or The Parc's elegant Parisian-inspired cuisine. A few blocks to the east, Broadstreet's Avenue of the Arts is an architectural paradise packed with street performers, theaters and music halls, while America's original stage venue, the Walnut Street Theatre, is just a short stroll away from the hotel doors.

Hints and tips
The rechristened business-class floor has its own lounge, which supplies guests with as many umbrella drinks and aperitifs as they can suck down, making it well worth the upgrade.

If you're up early for a meeting, the hotel has a business-friendly 'grab and run' breakfast in the lobby.

Hotel is in ideal location in Philadelphia

Upon arrival at the hotel the font desk staff gave us a warm welcome and allowed us to check in early which was great that way we didnt have to roam around the city with our luggage. The decor if very plush around the hotel as well as in our room, not to mention that the beds are wicked comfortable!! If there was anything we needed in our hotel the front desk staff was on top of it right away. Not to mention that the location of this hotel was perfect because there are so many places to eat right outside the front door and it's a trendy area. Next trip into the city, we'll be planning on staying at this hotel!!

weekend getaway

Staff were friendly and helpful during our stay. The location was perfect...walking distance to shops, restaurants and not too far from the historical aspects of Philly. A few small things that were negative - the tub filled up with water quickly while I was in the shower, making it more like a bath than a shower experience; the elevator button stopped working so that we were not able to press to go downstairs and had to press the up button to use the elevator. Not things that would keep me from coming back again.

Decent, but not likely to return.

Great location. The staff was friendly, and helpful. The room was comfortable, but nothing special. The sink did not drain well. A ceiling light was blown. The shower curtain smelled of mildew. It wasn't a bad experience - but certainly not 4 stars.

Philadelphia

The hotel was in an excellent area close to restaurants and sightseeing. We did not use our car while in Philly. We did use the hop on and hop off bus for sightseeing. I would recommend it.
