The Rittenhouse Hotel Celebrates 25 Years

Philadelphia’s The Rittenhouse has announced a series of special offers to celebrate 25 years in business. With a fresh new look courtesy of a nearly completed $10 million renovation, the hotel has added an array of additions and services to the property.

Guests can enjoy evening cocktails at the new Library Bar which opened last year. Throughout the month of June, visitors can try out the 'Silver Anniversary' cocktail, a mixture of champagne, a 25-year aged balsamico and a fresh strawberry reduction, created by The Rittenhouse’s own Master Mixologist, Papi Hurtado.
