Positive Reviews

Exceptional Service

Numerous guests have given glowing reviews time and time again of the professionalism and attentiveness of The Rittenhouse staff. From reception to the concierge to the bar staff and housekeeping, employees from all departments have made quite the positive impression.

Nice Touches

When a hotel has a AAA Five Diamond rating chances are the service and attention to detail are superb. Guests seem to notice special touches from the complimentary welcome drinks to a toy chest at the front desk, and champagne and dessert delivery for someone's birthday. Small gestures such as these go a long way to making people very happy.

Clean, Comfortable, Luxurious Rooms

Well-maintained accommodations are just one of the reasons travelers like staying here. Classic, yet elegant rooms are inviting with pristine, plush bedding and high-end amenities such as the Acqua di Parma toiletries.

Negative Reviews

Noise From Air-Conditioning Disruptive

Some guests have noted noisy air-conditioning kept them from getting a decent night's sleep. Light sleepers may want to bring earbuds if noise is an issue.

Classic Decor Not for Everyone

Fans of ultra contemporary design may not love the traditional, straightforward decor of the rooms and suites at this hotel. So if you prefer something more trendy, look elsewhere.

Valet Parking Price a Drawback

Nobody likes to pay for parking, and perhaps that is the biggest gripe about staying at this otherwise lovely hotel.
