Few hotels are worthy of the AAA 5-Diamond award, but The Rittenhouse Hotel's tip-top location and matchless service put it head and shoulders above the pack. 

Located in a swanky section of Center City, the hotel sits on the distinguished Rittenhouse Square Park, lined by 18th-century row homes and skyscrapers. Attractions like the Liberty Bell Center and the National Constitution Center are 30 minutes away on foot, or under 10 minutes by cab or the PATCO train.

The spacious rooms have great views, and all come with a soaking tub and separate shower. The suites have a separate living room and some include a kitchen. The best are the Park Suites (fully renovated in 2013), which also have a dining area and bar, and take advantage of the treetop views over Rittenhouse Square.

On-site dining highlights include the French-influenced Lacroix restaurant -- a favorite among locals for its elaborate Sunday brunch spread -- and full afternoon tea in the Mary Cassatt Tea Room with a seasonal menu.

The hotel also has gorgeous indoor pool, expansive fitness center, indoor pool and highly-rated spa.
