Philadelphia is a charming, historical city with a lot to see and do.
And because all of the action is in the heart of the city, it would be foolish to miss out.
That’s why the best place to stay, hands down, is the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia. The hotel is truly in the heart of the city, within walking distance to great food, attractions and outdoor space.
We stayed in at the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia during our stay in Philly in May, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the location, service, and room.
After a long travel day, we were treated to beautiful rooms facing the most perfect view, and friendly staff who graciously brought us chocolate and water. We were treated to the most perfect view of the Philadelphia City Hall from our room, with it’s beautiful architecture and beautiful surroundings.
The bathroom was the perfect spa-like environment for a bath.

The Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia is super-accessible, possibly one of it’s best features. We could walk to the LOVE statue, just a short five-minute walk away, and even to the Liberty Bell and the delicious Reading Terminal Market.
And it’s proximity to attractions doesn’t mean it’s small, either. The hotel is (true to the Ritz-Carltons legacy) grand and spacious. You hardly know that other guests are staying at the hotel, not only because of it’s size, but also because of the attentive staff. We felt taken care of from the minute we entered the doors.
If you want to experience the Ritz-Carlton for happy hour the bar in the lobby has wonderful cocktail specials and drinks, where you’ll be treated exceptionally well.
The Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia has historical significance in Philadelphia and one of the buildings is actually a reproduction of the Pantheon in Rome. This building was built in 1908 and was, at the time, the largest dome in the Western Hemisphere.
The grandeur of the ballroom, in another building, is indicative of the building’s roots. The building began as a bank, and the ballroom is now called The Vault.
There’s no doubt that this hotel is stunning, grand, and the perfect place to stay when your’e in Philadelphia.
