Nothing says luxury like a stay at the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia. Originally built in 1904 as the Girard Trust Company, the building transitioned from a bank to a hotel at the turn of the century and opened as the Ritz-Carlton in 2000. The 299 guest rooms and suites boast views of either the city or historic City Hall and were meticulously redesigned and renovated using a color and textile palette inspired by modern currency—an overt nod to the building’s banking history. Located on the Avenue of the Arts, the hotel also features an impressive collection of art, which is displayed throughout the premises.
