A true landmark of the city, The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia is set within the confines of a spectacular neoclassical building complete with rotunda dating back to 1908.
Originally a bank, the hotel has an abundance of original features to marvel at, but none more impressive than in the awe-inspiring lobby lounge: a vast marble-domed space that stretches four storeys high and houses the hotel’s signature restaurant and bar, Aquimero.
One of the city’s most glamorous dining destinations, it is helmed by famed chef Richard Sandoval, whose global empire of restaurants have garnered critical acclaim thanks to his pioneering approach to Latin cuisine.
On top of being a top dining destination, the hotel's central location just off Penn Square in the heart of Philadelphia’s historic district can not be beaten.
All 330 rooms and suites are located in the hotel's 30-storey adjoining tower, which was built in 1931 as an addition to the bank. As to be expected, the accommodation exudes grandeur from the early 20th century.
The Ritz-Carlton Suite is perched on the top floor and is the hotel’s finest key. Lofty ceilings, large picture windows and elegant white paneled walls are in keeping with the building's era, while the contemporary furnishings have a distinctly Art Deco aesthetic.
A neutral color palette exudes calm and as well as two bedrooms, the 1,900-sq-ft suite offers an expansive living and dining room with a bird's eye view of Philadelphia’s iconic City Hall, as well as valet parking and coveted access to the Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge.
For added privacy (and exclusivity) the suite boasts a private elevator to zoom guests from Avenue of the Arts, 30 storeys skywards.
