My husband and I went to Philly to see the Van Gogh Up Close exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in late April. What a lovely hotel in a wonderful location! We requested a quiet room with a view of Rittenhouse Square and got exactly what we asked for. We were a little tired after our 3+ hour drive from VA and were delighted that we were offered a flute of champagne, cookies and chocolate covered strawberries (a daily nicety which begins at 3:00) in the beautiful lobby while we waited for our room. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, (especially the bellmen, who called us by name and were always smiling and friendly) as was the Manager, David Benton, who joined us in the bar for some pre-dinner drinks where we enjoyed some lively and interesting conversation.
Our room was spacious, with a king bed with a comfy mattress and high quality, crisp linens. We enjoyed a great night's sleep in peaceful quiet, even though we were 8 floors above the busy square. The bathroom was a good size, with a nice big shower and the amenities were high quality. Housekeeping was superior.
We will definitely make the Rittenhouse our home when we visit Philly again.
