I cannot speak highly enough regarding the level of service provided by every staff member of the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia. Our wedding specialist, Nina, and banquet captain, Amir, made sure every single aspect of my daughter's wedding was perfect. She handled a couple of minor crises instantly so they had absolutely no impact on my daughter's enjoyment of the day. The service was impeccable at every level - from check-in and front-desk personnel to banquet captain and servers at the bridal breakfast. The venue and hotel rooms have been recently remodeled and are beautiful and elegant.Sent on 10/03/2017
Although my daughter and son-in law's wedding was almost two weeks ago, I am still hearing rave reviews from attendees about the delicious food, the incredible service, and overall how amazing their experience was at the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia.
Almost all of our wedding guests were from out of town - and the hotel treated each and every one of them with the level of service one would expect at a Ritz-Carlton.
The hotel also provided ready-rooms for the ladies and gentlemen of the wedding party (supervised by Penny) that had delicious snacks and beverages so everyone in the wedding had a chance to eat before leaving for the church. Nina, our wedding specialist, made sure our guests got on the correct shuttle to get to the church (since there was more than one shuttle outside.) We could not have asked for more!
