210 W. Rittenhouse Sq.,
215/546-9000 or 800/635-1042,
Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Mark Wahlberg, and Tom Hanks are just a few of the famous guests who have called the Rittenhouse Hotel home during their stays in Philadelphia—and no wonder, considering the ideal location, luxurious accommodations ($300–800), and perfectly attentive yet unobtrusive service.
English-born vice president David Benton oversees the independent luxury hotel, bringing a healthy dose of British sophistication to Philadelphia. Consistently ranked in the top 100 boutique hotels in the world, this is the place to stay on Rittenhouse Square.
Long-term apartment accommodations are available for those with fat wallets. Everything you want can be found on-site—an indoor pool, gym, salon, and two restaurants including Lacroix, one of the most esteemed fine-dining establishments in the city.
