For a taste of luxury in the heart of Philadelphia, look no further than The Rittenhouse. Named after the historic square which it borders, the hotel offers a white-glove experience, complete with beautiful rooms, a spa, and fine dining.
During COVID-19, The Rittenhouse is participating in HHM Hospitality’s Rest Assured Program, consisting of rigorous measures to keep guests and staff safe while maintaining its high-end status. Guests will still be able to get away from it all in each of the hotel’s spacious rooms, which measure 450 to 600 square ft. and boast marble bathrooms and pillow-top mattresses. Guest and specialty suites are perfect for travelers looking for the ultimate extravagance; upgrade with the Suite Yourself package.
One Bedroom Suite
Dine at one of The Rittenhouse’s in-house eateries, with a socially-distanced twist. Enjoy Italian fare at Scarpetta, open for outdoor dining along the park and at 25% occupancy for indoor dining. Begin with an arugula salad; the greens’ peppery flavor is nicely balanced with black mission fig and bosc pear, the tang of goat cheese, and the bite of a tangy cider vinaigrette. Those looking for an Italian classic will delight in creamy polenta with a fricassee of truffled mushrooms, or a burrata-heirloom tomato salad, its creaminess offset by pickled egg, black garlic, and basil. For a main course, try the delicious tagliatelle Bolognese or the light, bright red snapper. And an evening out wouldn’t be complete without a decadent crème fraîche cheesecake, complete with a strawberry compote and brown butter graham cracker.
Library Bar Lounge
The Rittenhouse’s Lacroix is also offering several different dining options. Don’t miss Lacroix in the Courtyard, a chic weekly pop-up series with a seasonal four-course tasting menu. Reservations for four start at $85/person; book your meal here. Looking to soak in the sights of Philadelphia while feasting on decadent treats? The Lacroix Picnic option is just for you. Lounge on a cashmere blanket on a crisp fall day in the park, savoring fine cheeses, charcuterie, and wine. Book your day out ($150/picnic) at rittenhousehotel.com.
If you want to soak up the delights of your Rittenhouse room, never fear; Lacroix on Wheels is at your service. Savor caviar and canapes in the comfort of your suite. We all need something to look forward to—and why not make that “something” a stay at The Rittenhouse? The salon is currently open; check the Rittenhouse website for the spa's reopening date.
