OVERVIEW of The Rittenhouse
Joining the Ritz Carlton at the top of the list of Philadelphia hotels is the Rittenhouse Hotel located on beautiful Rittenhouse Square in the heart of the City. This serene park is my favorite in Philadelphia and is surrounded by some wonderful cafes that spill out onto the sidewalk in the nice weather.
THE ROOMS at The Rittenhouse
Rooms are oversized by any standard at 450-600 sq feet and decorated in polished mahogany furnishings and rich fabrics. Park view rooms are the choice and you’ll need to request one at the time you make a reservation. Pillowtop beds are covered in luxury 300 count linens and down pillows. The large marble bathroom has an oversized tub, a separate shower and a separate dressing area. There’s Aromatherapy bath products, a 13″ TV, plush robes and slippers and huge bath towels.

You could literally eat all your weekend meals right in the hotel and regret none. The renowned Lacroix Restaurant is a AAA Four Diamond and Forbes Four Star standout.
