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.

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.

Ritz Carlton experience

Everything was excellent. the only problem was that every night-my room key had to be reset as it wouldn't work which was frustrating.

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
