The Rittenhouse

210 W. Rittenhouse Sq., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19103, USA

The service at Philadelphia's only AAA Five Diamond hotel is unparalleled. From happily providing personal items that travelers commonly forgot to dressing the pillows of weekend guests with chocolate-covered strawberries, the staff is among the most accommodating in the city. The 33-story building's sawtooth design gives the large guest rooms unusual shapes, with nooks and alcoves; many of the rooms overlook the famous square that gives the hotel its name. Each room has a large marble bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower; many also have whirlpool tubs. Other amenities include an on-site salon and spa and a contemporary fitness center with sauna/steam services and a pool. The modern French restaurant, Lacroix, is among the most elegant dining experiences in the city, and it's also known for its opulent buffet brunch.
