As part of their multi-year enhancement plan, the luxurious Rittenhouse Hotel recently unveiled five stunning park suites. Under the vision of internationally renowned designer Alexandra Champalimaud, the park suites are expected to be some of the most sought-after accommodations in Philadelphia.
In fact, those who book the suites will be immersed in luxury even en route to their rooms. “Guests will embark on a unique arrival experience, enjoying an exclusive private gallery before entering the suites," says general manager Reginald Archambault. Once inside the suites, “they will immediately take notice of the expansive ceilings, ample windows, and commanding views of the Square,” he says.
The new additions, located on the third floor of the hotel, range in size from 450 to 1,330 square feet and can expand in size by opening onto the adjacent suites. Each suite is fully equipped for either a short-term stint or long getaway and includes a living area, sitting room, dining room, private kitchen and bar, master bedroom, and bathroom. The spaces also feature picturesque views of the historic Rittenhouse Park via floor-to-ceiling windows, and can accommodate up to 25 guests at a time.
With a knack for combining traditional elegance and modern accents, Champalimaud custom designed the suites with oak-wood floors, stained grey millwork, wool carpets, silver travertine bathrooms, and vein-cut eramosa marble kitchens. To finish off the space, Champalimaud included art deco-inspired furnishings, silk draperies, and unique fabrics.
The landmark, 116-room luxury hotel continues its transformation throughout the remainder of the year. Guests interested in staying in one of the suites can contact the hotel directly. 210 W. RittenhouseSq., 215-546-9000
