Wonderful room, view, ambiance. The cozy robes and super soft sheets made for great warmth on a cold night. Dining experience on 2nd floor was top notch.

Good hotel, amazing service!

This hotel was very nice. Great amenities (although pool was closed for renovation while we were there) and perfect location. Right on the heart of the city you can walk almost anywhere. The best part was that the service was unbelievable. So attentive, kind, helpful. Some of the best I've ever experienced!

If this is 5 star... Then I'm fine with 3

We spent the night here for our anniversary in Philadelphia. We don't usually spend $300/ night for hotel rooms so this was a special occasion. Now it's not that we wouldn't spend $300 / night, we hast like getting the most out of our money. Anyway, upon arrival we saw that the valet parking was $50 so we parked in a garage near by for $25. The staff that welcomed us was very friendly and held all doors and offered to carry our 2 overnight bags to our room, we kinda declined their offer. Upon entering our city view king bed room, there were price tags blasted all over the place... For minibar items, room service, laundry service, etc. While it's nice to have all these things available to you, it can be overwhelming. My wife joked about how much I thought it cost to use the luxurious bathroom. The location was in fact great. Overlooking Rittenhouse Square park and being right along all that Walnut street shopping definitely makes this prime real estate. I think having only stayed there one night, it was hard to appreciate the 5 Starness of the hotel, but all in all I would be fine saving a couple hundred dollars and staying at a 3 star hotel and see very little difference.

Opulent Hotel Experience

Although I only stayed for one night, my experience at The Rittenhouse Hotel was incredible. My suite was well appointed, roomy and comfortable and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Absolutely loved the experience and hope to stay with them again!

Like a dream

The Rittenhouse is the perfect hotel to say the least. The staff especially made my trip the best vacation I have ever had. Everybody was so warm and welcoming. The hotel was extravigent and super clean. The location could not be any better. It is right in front of a beautiful park, which is like a cleaner, smaller central park. It is right in the middle of everything. (Shopping, restaurant, bars, entertainment) I will absolutely be staying at he Rittenouse again very soon!

The concierge recommended a great bar and restaurant: Village Whiskey. A fantastic list of scotch, Irish and American whiskeys. Ask for a flight of your own selection - the bartender was immensely knowledgeable if you want to talk whiskey for a while.

Great hotel

Arrived after midnight after travelling for most of the day. Everyone was very gracious and I was able to get room service (dinner) at 1am. Very grateful I didn't have to make a meal of the snacks.

Wonderful Hotel Experience in Downtown Philly

From the suite-sized room to the fantastic staff service (concierge Brian got us table at R2L at last minute and our meal with our clients was superb!) and room service, it doesn't get any better than this for us. We consequently could throroughly enjoy a rigorous work week in town while feeling pampered at 'home base'. Thank you for pointing us to this fantastic hotel!
