The only issue i found was with the parking. You go the standard answer "we dont own the parking garage" Parking will cost you approximately $53 a night ($ 45 plus tax). Thankfully I found parking on a Saturday night, which cost me less than $27. The following day was Sunday which had no charge for meter parking.

I liked the location & the bar & eatery in the hotel. Didn’t like the bed pillows (were too soft & we only had one for each person. Our bathroom could have been cleaned better(there was something splashed on the walks?). Ceiling above shower was peeling & cracked? More closet space to hang clothing & coats. (There were 4 of us sharing the room) Otherwise. It was ok. Just those few things and a great location for our small group.

The hotel was in center city, excellent location for sight-seeing downtown Philly. Food and shopping was primo!!! My daughter and fiancé stayed in a corner king on the 20th floor, my two adult sons in a double queen room and me in a single queen room on the 19th floor; very comfortable beds with fantastic shower. The valet parking can be busy and waiting for your car can be 10-15 minutes; however, the valet staff are cordial, helpful and professional -be kind to them.. they are fantastic at what they do!!!! Tip them!!!! Driving into Philly was easy with maps and Wawa was close by for all your special needs…. I highly recommend Sonesta Philadelphia Rittenhouse to family and friends-excellent stay!!!

The hotel was very clean and neat. I didn't like that we were next to the elevator shaft. Maybe it would be nice to have the option of using a sound machine in the rooms that are next to the elevator shafts.
