Really a great experience in every way

Location across from City Hall couldn't be better, near everything. The lobby and cocktail lounge... See full review

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.

Neighborhood
The hotel is right in the middle of Philadelphia's Center City, within walking distance of many key moments in America's revolutionary history, from the Liberty Bell to Independence Hall. The Gothic architecture of City Hall is visible from the hotel's front door, Rittenhouse Square's stores and restaurants are just a few blocks from Broad Street, and visitors can stop at Walnut Street for an evening show at America's longest-running theater.
Hints and tips
Get the number for the valet service, then text your ticket number to them about 15 minutes before you plan to leave, and enjoy a smooth exit.

If you're looking for additional restaurant options, the Ritz-Carlton is across the street from a local branch of McCormick's Seafood.

Really Great Service

The service is exactly what you would expect- 5 Star. The breakfast bar was delicious and it had everything I wanted. I was very pleased with everything here, especially the great customer service.

Great hotel with an Elegant and Stately Lobby

The hotel was close to my conference (2 blocks) and was was a great "steal". I had a nice view of the city hall from my room. The lobby and the front facade has a "Roman" look with Doric columns lining all walls and the front of the hotel. The staff were excellent and the room, very comfortable. The hotel is what you expect out of a hotel of this name.

Ritz runner up

The Philly Ritz needs work to catch up to the standard of excellence exhibited by properties in DC, Naples, and Boston. The spa and fitness center are ordinary at best. The restaurant and bar need work - smallest pour of single malt scotch I've ever seen. And my room was noisy from the city traffic to the clunky heater. Even an average Ritz is a great hotel but the Philly Ritz should be better.

Barclay Prime is a great restaurant and worth the walk. The Capital Grille is also good and its closer.

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.

good hotel....but not up to par with typical Ritz

It is a nice hotel, but not up to par with what you would expect from a Ritz. The staff is very friendly but the room is not exactly luxurious....Overall a nice experience but have stayed in other Ritz/Four Seasons and have had a better experience.

Very nice hotel, slightly overpriced

The hotel itself is very beautiful, but the rooms themselves are just above average. The bathrooms are nicer than your average hotel, but the bedroom itself may actually be slightly smaller. Also, when paying for 5-star luxury, I would expect 5-star luxury at every corner, but that wasn't necessarily the case. I've had better rooms, better turndown service, etc. at other hotels. However, the major draw here is the location. I was lucky to have a room that looked right out on City Hall, and the view was spectacular. The hotel was convenient to walk to restaurants, attractions, etc. I would definitely come back here, but I do think it's slightly overpriced.
