This hotel is set in the heart of Philadelphia near the Reading Terminal Market and Rittenhouse Square
There are pricey fees for Wi-Fi access and valet parking
While this Ritz-Carlton has the impeccable service that you'd expect from the brand, it's the property's beauty that's the real crowd-pleaser. White columns mark the portico entrance in front of a large dome that caps the dramatic lobby. And the pleasing aesthetic of the entrance extends to the rooms and suites, which are appointed in warm neutral tones and include large windows, marble bathrooms, in-room safes and flat-screen TVs. After checking in, a cocktail and meal in the Latin American Aqimero is a must. Craving more luxury? Head to the Richel D'Ambra Spa & Salon for a replenishing massage or body treatment. Sure, the price tags of this luxury hotel may be steep, but because of the Ritz's Marriott ties, those who take part in the Marriott Bonvoy program can use points they've earned for complimentary nights. Plus, this hotel places you right next to City Hall, and is within walking distance of Reading Terminal Market.

You'll feel like you're checking into the Pantheon when you enter this neoclassical hotel set in a century-old bank building.

Fodor's Choice



The Philly Ritz-Carlton wins, hands-down, best hotel entrance in the city: an imposing Greek temple portico that leads into a simply stunning colonnaded lounge and reception area modeled loosely after the Pantheon in Rome.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended


The Ritz is housed in a stunning 1904 bank building designed after the Pantheon, and its grand rotunda lobby delivers serious "wow" factor. The terrific restaurant from celebrity chef Eric Ripert is also a highlight.
