How it Ranks: The Rittenhouse Hotel ranks #1 out of 127 Philadelphia Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: Owning the best address in the city, The Rittenhouse Hotel has long been the standard against which to measure Philly's other luxury hotels. Recent guests marvel at the grandeur of the property, as seen when looking from the outside in at the gorgeous wood-paneled lobby or gazing inside out from one of the guest room windows down to the picturesque, tree-lined street. On the premises, you'll find the The Rittenhouse Spa & Club - Hair by Paul Lebrecque (opening Spring 2014) and five varied reaturants and/or bars to complete the cosmopolitan paradise. And then there's the stylish accommodations: Rooms come furnished with sumptuous duvets, complimentary Wi-Fi, oversized tubs and marble bathrooms with deluxe bath products. But what recent guests say made their stay truly memorable is the impeccable service. Guests strongly emphasize that the gracious staff and old-fashioned elegance of the property rarely disappoint.
