This Neo-Classical landmark in the heart of Philadelphia spoils guests rotten while giving them a glimpse into the grandeur of the city's past. The grand entrance is held up by gigantic pillars reminiscent of Athenian temples, while more modern touches adorn the 10 Arts Lounge, a casual spot for sipping cocktails and enjoying live music on weekends. Reserve a private room if you wish to enjoy your Arts Bistro meal with abandon, or slip away for some luxury solitude at the Richel D'Ambra Spa - try the delicious-smelling honey and hibiscus body wrap.

Lovely Weekend

My husband and I came to Philadelphia for a very quick weekend trip to visit nearby family. The Ritz is quite beautiful and very conveniently located. We enjoyed the main floor restaurant in the evening for cocktails and a nosh. It was a wonderful experience.

Fantastic quick trip

Had a wonderful experience. The staff was extremely helpful and observant to customers. On two separate occassions we were standing in the lobby trying to decide on a plan of action. Each time a staff person passing by would stop and ask if there was something they could help us with. We'd tell them what we were trying to do and they offered suggestions, we decided, and they would assist us in accomplishing the task. They also made it their business to call you by your last name. They wre just wonderful, friendly, & helpful employees. Thank you, Ritz-Carlton in Philly, for such caring employees

The staff care about each guest and do whatever possible to make the experience positive. Two complaints - the room I had was so large that the TV being across the room from the bed is so far away I had trouble seeing it. And, I wish the shower had an overhead/recessed light fixture, it really was a little dark.

Special anniversary trip.

Club level was not good experience. The staff were all very friendly and helpful but for a hotel with this reputation a guest should not have to ask for bread or replenish bath items! Only one restaurant with one limited menu.Not up to other 5 star hotel experiences!
