Rittenhouse Hotel makes a tops list


That whooping sound from the west side of Rittenhouse Square is general manager David Benton and staff of the Rittenhouse Square exulting over a Travel + Leisure mag announcement.

August's issue contains the news that the Rittenhouse, an independent, was selected by readers as the No. 2 "small hotel" in the continental U.S. and Canada, behind the Hotel Bel-Air in L.A., which is actually closed for renovation. Numbers 3 through 5 are the Auberge Saint-Antoine in Quebec City and a tie between the Eliot in Boston and the Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi in Santa Fe, N.M.

Overall, the Rittenhouse was No. 52 worldwide on T+L's top 100.

The Four Seasons Philly was No. 44 on the list of large city hotels (100 rooms or more), the only Philly property on that list.
