A great place to stay.
One of the very best hotels I have stayed in. Beautiful room with stunning view. Good food. Excellent service. Really appreciated the special such as the treasure chest of toys—my granddaughters each chose one. Location is wonderful. A great place to stay.

Very Good 8.0
Gem of a Stay
Great atmosphere and service. From the doorman to the bartenders, everyone was welcoming and warm. Room was exquisitely designed and the location is superb. The only downside to an amazing stay would have been that the bed and pillows weren't as comfortable as I would've hoped for such a luxurious hotel.

Absolutely fabulous
Excellent customer service, beautiful hotel, fantastic location.
Bethany, us2 night trip
Good 6.0
It’s a great old hotel and the location overlooking the square is key. Feeling warm and at home in the rooms is key particularly for a winter visit. My critique is that when I arrived I was put in a room with a “city view” on a low floor even though there were clearly other rooms. I had requested an upgrade and didn’t get one — that’s ok, but I was also given a room that was obviously not designed to provide the best possible experience. My problem with that approach is that it felt like reception was trying to give me the bare minimum experience at the hotel and not the best possible stay available. That came through and put a damper on the weekend. I did ask to change rooms later and it was accommodated and I very much appreciated that. But the approach taken earlier was very disappointing. It doesn’t leave me with a feeling of wanting to return knowing that I will be treated as a special guest, which out to be the goal of any hotel, particularly given how many options there are nowadays.

Poor 2.0
Sink in bathroom clogged, no food available at 2nd floor restaurant bar after 10PM, moved to lobby level bar, it took 15 minutes for server to come take our drink order, another 15 minutes to deliver drink. we were going to order food but decided not to because of the extremely slow service. Had an issue with billing, still waiting for a return call from the manager on has been 2 days so far. My family and I have been going to this hotel for years during the holidays and anytime we are in the Philadelphia area. We will no longer be staying at The Rittenhouse.

The service is top notch. Great people caring for your every need. Kid’s treasure chest and dessert at night made it extra special.
