The only thing saving this business is the extra friendly staff. I wish I had read the reviews before booking. It showed up as VIP on Expedia and I fell for it, my fault!

The only thing saving this business is the extra friendly staff. I wish I had read the reviews before booking. It showed up as VIP on Expedia and I fell for it, my fault! The lobby is certainly pretty but due to covid you can't just hang out there. The room was okay. Clean. However, the AC was extra loud. It was impossible to get a good nights sleep in the room with the AC literally sounding like there was a running car in our bedroom. After our long drive between three states were in no mood to change rooms in the middle of the night. The lobby was filled with the smell of pot. I am not sure the hotel even cared. The doors are super old technology, they don't even close on their own. This was a big concern for me as our room had been broken into at Hyatt in Seattle just two months ago. Every time we left I checked the door at least three times. For people who absolutely loved this hotel: have they ever stayed at a hotel before? This is literally bottom of the barrel. Or did they get the room for $50 a night? That'd be reasonable. We paid $400 for two nights and that was a bit much. Oh and the garage was $46 per night which is typical for any city. A bit much but we didn't have any issues. The car was ready for us every time we called ahead of time. Read less

We have stayed several times at the Warwick. The location is excellent and service always wonderful. The accommodations have been great as far as room size, cleanliness, and available resources. However, during our most recent stay, it was obvious that the room was a bit worn. It seems to be feeling its age, and could use some renovations.… Read more
We have stayed several times at the Warwick. The location is excellent and service always wonderful. The accommodations have been great as far as room size, cleanliness, and available resources. However, during our most recent stay, it was obvious that the room was a bit worn. It seems to be feeling its age, and could use some renovations. Overall physical aspects of the room, noisy air conditioning/heating system, and inconsistent fluctuating shower temperatures definitely impacted our experience. That being said, we will be back!

I was highly impressed with the following: the cleanliness of the room; the professionalism and friendliness of the front desk and wait staff; the quality of the hotel amenities; and the hotel's vicinity to the key elements of the city. I was however significantly troubled with the garage staff, particularly, a black, bald man with a thick African ascent. As background, I stayed at the hotel for three days. During the three days, I needed to utilize my vehicle to transport teenage volleyball players to the convention center for the North East Qualifier. In a pleasant experience, I retrieved my vehicle the first day and was informed, upon returning to the garage, I was going to be provided another garage parking ticket for that day and beyond. When I returned that day with my vehicle, the garage was busy and they female garage attendant processing all the customers was quite busy. I asked for a garage parking ticket and she informed me I did not need a ticket. The next morning, I returned to retrieve my vehicle again, wherein I was asked by the aforementioned gentlemen for the garage parking ticket. I informed the gentlemen I was not provided a garage parking ticket. The gentlemen then proceeded to lecture me about the necessity for possessing a garage parking ticket to retrieve my vehicle. I reiterated to the gentlemen that I was not provided a garage parking ticket by his fellow staff members, wherein he became increasingly loud and verbally aggressive. I then sharply verbally interrupted his degrading verbal attack by stating it was not my fault but the hotel staff's fault for not providing me a garage parking ticket. I then demanded my vehicle, as he was going to make the girls late for their attendance at the volleyball tournament, which was the purpose of our stay at the hotel. Obviously, this was a terrible experience. Read less

This was our first time staying at Hotel Warwick. To begin, if you do not know the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia is arguably the nicest part of the city. The hotel is situated one block over from Rittenhouse Square. The hotel has a very old fashion feel with modern amenities, with one of the most professional staff for a hotel at this price level. I would like to give a specific shout out to Steve in the front who helped with bags directions checking in and checking out. I also found Khalid very knowledgeable and professional when he offered to hold our bags after we had checked out. We really liked the breakfast place connected to the entrance. Coffee was imported from Australia! We will definitely be back! Read less

Rittenhouse Square is around the corner. Their cool lobby is attached to “Spice Finch” an wonderful eclectic Mediterranean restaurant. Tho you can find AMAZING pizza a block away at Vetri Pizzeria (try their meatballs!) Theres a super convenient Indego bike sharing stand is right outside their side door. Their lobby is bright and open. This is a wonderful hotel I’d stay there again. The 17th Ave. location makes it easy to get to the Barnes Foundation for their incredible painting exhibit including their de Kooning special exhibit this spring 2021. Also we love the dream poet for hire who stations himself outside the entrance to Rittenhouse Square and writes you a poem from your suggestions. Find him if you can. Saturday morning farmers market in Rittenhouse Square is full of locals. Comedy clubs are within walking distance. Find your way to Third Street — it’s good walking fun —Cafe Ole has noteworthy Shakshuka. What?! Soft poached eggs in middle eastern tomato sauce. Go try it. Read less
