Top rated and worth it.

Pros: The rooms are very spacious, the staff is professional, friendly and very good.
Location: Many restaurants and places to see within walking distance. Perfect location for a first visit to the city or your 100th. Love this hotel.
As in previous stays, The Rittenhouse was excellent. The staff was friendly, welcoming, attentive, and professional in every way. The room was well appointed, spacious and lovely. We stay here whenever we want a nice hotel in Philadelphia and are never disappointed. I highly recommend it for a higher end hotel experience.

Truly incredible customer service! We were very well taken care of and the complimentary extras (decadent hot chocolate and chocolate covered strawberries in the lobby, glass of champagne in the bar) made this a truly exceptional experience.

Engagement magic evening

Pros: Everything!
We arrived on Saturday afternoon having become engaged two hours earlier. The entire staff for the hotel, restaurant and bar couldn't have been more welcoming in our happiness and celebration of the day. We had a memorable evening that we will never forget!

Most pleasant experience.

It's been some time since we were last here at the Rittenhouse and it was always excellent. Now seems better than I remember. Location, facility and staff clearly make it the best in Philly. Must have a nitecap in the Library.
