The Rittenhouse

The Rittenhouse

Home to Philadelphia’s Victorian aristocracy during the 19th century, Rittenhouse Square attracts today’s gentry with its stately oaks, outdoor markets and The Rittenhouse Hotel. Fresh flowers and art books adorn the newly renovated, generously sized 118 rooms and suites; families are treated to in-room movies with popcorn and other amenities, while use of the health club (including the pool, steam and sauna) are always complimentary. Linger over the seasonal progressive cuisine at Lacroix restaurant; afternoon tea is a Center City event. Get around the city with the hotel’s complimentary chauffeured Jaguar.

Hotel Tip

The Rittenhouse gets a “paws-up” from Fido, ranking as one of the city’s most pet-friendly hotels with customized food bowls and healthy treats.

Nice hotel, a bit dated

The Rittenhouse is a beautiful hotel in the center of Philadelphia. We had a wonderful time. The only comment I would make is that the room itself was extremely dark, with dark and heavy walls and drapery.

Fabulous Hotel

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rittenhouse. The accommodations (Park View) were spacious, comfortable and attractive. The breakfast buffet was superior and offered in a warm setting overlooking the square. The location was convenient to all of our museums to which we were able to walk. There were several very good restaurants to which we walked across the square to dinner. Finally, but not least, the staff-to a person-was efficient, helpful, courteous and kind.
