This European-style hotel is situated on the historic downtown Rittenhouse Square. Impeccable service is provided by an unfailingly congenial staff. The 118 resolutely traditional accommodations, including 27 suites, occupy only the first 10 floors of the tower, but the views of the square are memorable. Even entry-level rooms feel very spacious, with separate nooks for work desks and ample closets, and many come with full-size sofa beds. Impressive Specialty Suites feature living rooms, handcrafted furniture made specially for the hotel and well-equipped kitchens or kitchenettes. The commendable Lacroix restaurant offers locally sourced international cuisine, while Scarpetta serves Italian fare. Formal afternoon tea is served in the Mary Cassatt Tea Room, and the Library Bar, especially popular with locals, specializes in craft cocktails. The newly remodeled 5,000-square-foot wellness club encompasses a spa, gym and hair salon, as well as an indoor atrium swimming pool.
