Philadelphia boasts several high end hotels and the Rittenhouse is one of them. Privately owned, it’s only five storeys tall but backs a lot into a small package. Formerly a residential mansion, it sits on Rittenhouse Square in an upscale yet central neighbourhood. With over 100 rooms and suites, the hotel was most recently renovated in 2018 and is classically elegant in style with hardwood floors, travertine bathrooms and silk drapes adding flair. Accommodation is spacious by Philly standards and even the smallest rooms boast seating as well as dressing areas. Many look out over the leafy square. There’s a huge spa, a fitness centre, a wonderful pool and a sophisticated library bar in which trying the hotel’s signature RH cocktail, a whiskey sour with dried figs, is a must.
Of the hotel’s restaurants, the Lacroix is the showstopper. The Sunday brunch is legendary while the culinary excellence of its fine dining menu make this worthy of any special occasion. Consistently high performing since it opened in 2003, chef Jon Cichon can be relied upon for innovative dishes bursting with flavour.
