About The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia

The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia is a luxurious hotel venue for couples’ weddings in the greater Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. This hotel features unwavering personal attention and service for couples on their wedding day, all while celebrating in magnificent ballrooms. Couples will find this venue located just across the street from Philadelphia City Hall.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 400 guests to their wedding at The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia. There are ten event spaces and rooms for couples to choose from on their big day. Of these, there are three popular and glamorous spaces couples return to again and again. The Grand Ballroom features magnificent arches with marbled columns. There is an impressive crystal chandelier hanging over the center of the room with a glistening dance floor reflecting its light below. There are also smaller chandeliers throughout the room, French doors, and an overall color scheme of modern grays and white. The Petite Ballroom hosts up to 100 guests. Oversized windows in this space offer views of City Hall, while a high domed ceiling adds depth to the room. The Exchange is the hotel’s restaurant space, previously famous as the Grill Restaurant.

Like the Petite Ballroom, The Exchange has windows overlooking City Hall and South Broad Street.
