Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“A five-star – excuse me, make that fivediamond – hotel on Rittenhouse Square. Rooms have marble baths. Of the downtown options with a pool, this is one of the nicest.”

Frommers review:

“This elegant-modern hotel has been locked in a genteel, decades-long battle with the Four Seasons for the title of top hotel in Philadelphia. The Rittenhouse might actually be winning.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Philadelphia.

Forbes review:

“Sitting on green-filled Rittenhouse Square, the hotel has a tony and urban locale, but inside, it feels fresh and intimate. Opened in 1989, the hotel got makeovers in summer 2013 and winter 2018 that unveiled a softer design palette, refurbished rooms and new, contemporary suites that look out on the square.”

Telegraph review:

“Situated in a covetable location on Rittenhouse Square, just across the road from one of the city’s oldest parks, the Rittenhouse is Philadelphia’s bastion of heritage-breed luxury. Colossal rooms, a modern restaurant and a sanctuary-like spa make it one of the best places to stay in town.”
