$18 Million Dollar Renovations for the Most Luxurious Experience in Philadelphia

Since purchasing The Rittenhouse in 2012, Hersha Hospitality Trust has invested over $18 million in the asset, solidifying the hotel’s prominent place as a luxury market leader. Our multi-phase renovation has reenvisioned the guestrooms, public spaces, and F&B spaces, including the Mary Cassatt Tea Room, the Library Bar and Scarpetta – an LDV-operated casual-elegant Italian restaurant. The Rittenhouse Spa & Club was comprehensively overhauled and now features modern architectural appointments.

Working along renowned designers such as Champalimaud, Hersha has curated spaces that define luxury in Philadelphia. From the travertine showers and soaking tubs to the grand ceiling heights and updated finishes, the Rittenhouse emanates excellence in design.

The Rittenhouse project started in 2013 and will be adding its finishing touches in 2018. HHM partnered with two renowned architecture firms – BLT Architects and Strada Architects. For refining the luxury look, Bill Rooney Studio and Champalimaud were brought in for interior designing.
