The hotel

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and boasting a fabulous Rittenhouse Square location, The Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel Phildelphia more than lives up to expectations when experiencing the sights and the heritage of Philadelphia. With all of the 'must see' attractions right on your doorstep and a wonderful array of fascinating interior designs, this is one of the city's most sought after properties and promises a superb choice of guest room features and comforts. The adage: 'why go out for a burger when you have steak at home' couldn't be more apt and if you're feeling more than a bit peckish just follow your nose to The Tavern 17 or The Prime Rib restaurants for a genuine taste of 1940's Philly style nostalgia. If you do manage a night on the tiles the coffee bar and fitness centre are always on hand to help you work your way back to the land of the living and from bagels to dumbbells, this is your chance to enjoy life at a pace that suits you. With garage and valet parking available* you'll soon discover an authentic east coast home coming in Philadelphia and no sooner have you said goodbye you'll be longing to come back for more.

Great location for business and family activities. Definitely get to know Steve the doorman!!! He will lead you in the right direction for food and anything else! Comfy rooms with generous amenities.

Only downfall is the snobby baristas at Blue Lane Coffee shop in the lobby. I felt like I was a burden when ordering from them. Spice Finch in the lobby is a must for food and drinks! A minute walk to Rittenhouse Park and a few minutes walk to shopping and various joints. Read less

This is one of the more difficult reviews I've had to write. On the one hand, I have stayed at the Warwick many times over the years, and my past stays were uniformly excellent. When travels took me to Philadelphia, the Warwick was my favorite hotel. On the other hand, my stay this month was less than spectacular, and to me a hotel is only as good as its last impression. On the plus side, I love the Warwick's location, generously-sized rooms, and relatively recent renovation, which was superbly done. Still, I was somewhat shocked at the subpar housekeeping this time around. Few things are worse than arriving at a hotel room and finding a dirty bathroom. In my case, there were noticeable urine splashes on the floor around the toilet--which indicated the floor had not been mopped after the last guest--a problem that any competent housekeeping supervisor should have seen. To make matters worse, I stopped by the front desk and politely reported the problem. I was told that housekeeping would be alerted and the problem promptly addressed. Except that it wasn't. When I returned to the front desk on the second day, and again, very politely, explained that I had a dirty bathroom floor, and further explained that I had previously reported the problem, again I was told that the problem would be addressed. But, again, it wasn't--at all. So throughout a three-night stay, I had a visibly dirty bathroom floor--a simple problem that should not have occurred in the first place--and a problem that became a real irritant as it became obvious that there was a failure of multiple staff members, including management. Will I stay at the Warwick again? Perhaps. But in the future I will first check the Tripadvisor reviews very thoroughly, and if they aren't uniformly excellent, I will probably look for a new Philly favorite. Read less

Very nice lobby and a great bar in the Spice Finch restaurant. Rooms could use a bit of updating as ours was a little musty. Superb location for restaurants and shopping. Would stay there again. That’s all I have to say but TripAdvisor won’t accept a review under two hundred characters so I added this useless sentence.

Checked in and assumed that someone had not yet checked out. Every single drawer was left open, one had a water bottle in it and another had ear plugs. The room was far from clean looking and the toilet seat was left up.

Checked in and assumed that someone had not yet checked out. Every single drawer was left open, one had a water bottle in it and another had ear plugs. The room was far from clean looking and the toilet seat was left up. When I called to inquire as to if someone had not checked out, the response was “the housekeeper may have forgotten to close the drawers”. It’s more like the housekeeper forgot to clean the room and leave it to the standards one would expect from any hotel let alone The Warwick. I specifically asked for a quiet room and on the last night had to change my room twice because of noise from the rooms next to mine. If you require quiet, this is not the place to stay. The walls are paper thin and the staff while apologized each time there was an issue, that didn’t help me any. The shower in last room didn’t work, either scalding hot water or freezing cold, nothing in between. So disappointed!!!! Read less
