If you’re planning a trip to the Philadelphia area, then I would recommend stating at the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel situated in the Rittenhouse Square district of Philadelphia. The 301-room historic hotel has recently completed a renovation that includes a redesign of all guestrooms and corridors, a new business class floor with private lounge, as well as the hotel’s grand lobby to reflect a contemporary style while maintaining the charm and heritage of the landmark hotel.
When I first walked into the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel, my jaw dropped. The lobby screamed artistic-contemporary which tied into the atmosphere of Philadelphia. There are many features of the lobby that standout when you first walk in. Some of those features are, but not limited to, beautiful pendant lighting, a feature rug of black and white text that creates a level of curiosity for guests, and two massive surface applied art installations on both bookend walls that encompass two restored fireplaces. On each side of the lobby features a series of high back lounge chairs and two extra-large sofas upholstered in a wide mix of Missoni fabrics. The lobby not only gives off a contemporary-artistic feel, but it’s also very inviting and welcoming.
Walking into my hotel room was like stepping into a fairytale. I never stayed in such a nice hotel before. I had the pleasure of staying in one of the executive rooms, perfect for the professional traveler with a sophisticated taste. It was a very spacious room, consisting of a work desk, king size bed with bedside tables and lighting, a big flat-screen TV to catch up on sports news, lots of drawer space, a lounge area with a coffee table, espresso machine, and a decent-size bathroom. What I loved most about this hotel’s d├ęcor was the many Philadelphia-related pictures that draped the guest corridors and each guestroom. The Radisson Blu serves complimentary breakfast every morning in their lounge. There is a wide variety of breakfast foods available to their guests, hot and cold, as well as fresh coffee. The hot food choices change each day and are very delicious. Remember…breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Prices per night range from $150 and higher.
There is more to the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel than just the lobby and guestrooms. Valet parking is available for $40 per day; the hotel ensures your vehicle is treated with the utmost care and is retrievable by phone or text. If you are not interested in valet parking, then secure garage parking, $34 per day, is available directly behind the hotel on Chancellor Street between 17th and 18th streets. A business center is available 24 hours a day, accessed with your room key, for all your business needs. A full service salon is open on the lower level of the lobby from Tuesday through Saturday which provides cuts, coloring, highlights and perms. For those who love to stay fit, begin your day with a workout in the hotel’s modern, state-of-the-art fitness center which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Radisson Blu also offers spa services that feature a range of holistic treatments designed to replenish your body and spirit.
I am very satisfied with my stay at the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel. Hotel staff was efficient and very courteous. Rooms were inviting, spacious and very comfortable which is what I look for when travelling. There were many choices available during breakfast, and each tasted great! And overall price of each room per day is very reasonable, considering its location. The location of the hotel is in the best spot. It’s in walking distance from many different restaurants and shopping. If you decide to visit Philadelphia, then please give the newly renovated Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel a try. You won’t be disappointed. To book your stay today, please visit
