I stayed at this hotel on April 19, 2013. The Ritz Carlton Philadelphia is one of the most stunningly beautiful hotels in the city. From the moment you enter, the neoclassical architecture commands attention and your eyes are quickly drawn to the ceiling. The staff was incredibly attentive and polite, which one would expect at such an establishment. Unfortunately, I didn't have the best view from my window, but the ample space and immaculately clean and pleasant bathroom made up. Anyway, I didn't stay for the window view. Philadelphia is a city for exploring. Luckily, this hotel couldn't be situated in a more convenient and accessible location. With regard to the lounge on the ground floor, it was the perfect place to unwind with very hip music and an astonishingly complete wine selection. It is, however, geared to a younger crowd. I do remember this hotel years ago before the current refurbishment. I miss the older layout with the busts of the Roman emperors under the rotunda. It had a much more grandiose effect. I wish they'd bring that back. There's no need to emmulate a W Hotel. This hotel has the name and place setting to be in a league all its own.
