Service and professionalism is what you expect from the Ritz brand. The team with whom we worked topped off their impeccable Ritz service with a healthy dose of Philly down-to-earth charm. Ginger is a star - quintessential professional and genuinely warm and caring. Loved partnering with her and team. Jerry is a gentleman and super attentive to detail. A+ for hospitality.

If you're looking to have your wedding at a FABULOUS venue in the Philadelphia area, look no further. Not even sure where to begin this glowing review.

We walked into the Ritz, looked around the incredible lobby and knew this was it. The place is magnificent.

The staff at the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia treated us like GOLD the entire way through. From our first meetings with Staci to planning the wedding with Susan (aka driving her crazy, haha) to the day of the wedding with Banquet Captain Stephanie & Head Server Billy, they couldn't have been nicer, more thoughtful or more thorough. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them!

The food, oh my gosh, the food. If you want your guests to eat well, this place is it. The food was absolutely incredible. As a bride, they say you never get to eat the food. Well I wasn't missing this meal. White gown and all, I ate the entire meal AND the cake. (Which was the best cake flavor I've ever tasted, Sweet Potato, like a Carrot Cake only more delicious)

Susan was incredible with setting up all my DIY add ons (I blame Pinterest) and executed them perfectly! She was extremely flexible with every request I made, making wedding planning a heck of a lot easier!

I cannot say more wonderful things about the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia. They made our wedding more wonderful than we ever could have imagined. It's truly a gem of a venue!

After researching numerous venues in the center city area, the Ritz Carlton was the obvious choice. Not only was the property breathtaking but also the people were top notch. Plenty of places in the city were pretty but no one treated us the way the Ritz Carlton did. They made us feel like our day was what was important to them, not their bottom line. The venue is simply is stunning. We knew that all of the marble, the enormous marble columns, the elegance of the ball room and the exquisite chandeliers would give us that old world feel we were looking for. The Food was OUT OF THIS WORLD. You could cut the steak with a butter knife! Almost every guest said it was the best meal they EVER had!! But, what really made our day so special was the treatment we received from the Ritz Carlton. The night before the wedding, after the rehearsal dinner, the groom’s father was rushed to the hospital and needed emergency surgery. Since he was not able to attend the wedding the Ritz Carlton skyped the ceremony (which was not even on their premises) to the intensive care unit. Not only did they go out of their way to make sure he saw the ceremony they had a staff member, unbeknownst to us, take pictures of the whole day, printed the pictures out, designed an album, and delivered it to his hospital room immediately following the reception. They did absolutely everything they could to make sure our day was as perfect as it could be. None surpasses the service and the feel of the Ritz Carlton.

My wife Wendy and I had such an amazing day thanks to the Ritz Carlton and the wonderful staff, I just had to spend a few moments to express my gratitude and mention a few special people who really stood out.

Staci Gussis was the very first person we met at the Ritz Carlton. I remember walking into our initial meeting being frustrated and burned out by looking at other venues in Philadelphia. Staci greeted us with a warm smile and instantly disarmed me from my bad mood. She was so attentive and encouraging, we made up our mind to go with the Ritz Carlton within the first 10 minutes. She stopped by our wedding several times on Saturday to make sure we were ok.

Susan was our event coordinator, from our very first meeting with Susan, she treated us like we were her only clients. She was always so thoughtful and patient with all of our questions. Everything we envisioned Susan made happen, she delivered on every aspect and was mindful of the smallest details. Susan exemplifies the Ritz Carlton brand in everything she does. I have 100% trust in Susan and she is the first person I will call for future events or parties. At the end of the evening, my photographer who has been doing wedding for almost 20 years said he’s never seen wedding go so smoothly. Wendy and I could not be happier thanks to Susan. Susan was constantly making herself available for anything on Saturday, but more importantly over the past year.

Brenda also made herself available throughout the evening and whenever we were on the property, she reminded me that the staff was here to make our day special and to let her know if we needed anything at all. Although I have not had the pleasure to work with Brenda as much as Susan, Brenda was always attentive and engaging.

Jerry was our Banquet Captain and executed the evening with flawless precision. He engaged our guests with charisma and completely answered every question; making everyone feel important and special. Jerry’s service is crisp and sharp, exactly what you expect and hope for from the Banquet Captain on your special day.

Robert was our head waiter. Wendy told me during the course of the evening she felt like the President and Robert was her Secret Service detail. Robert serves all his guest in a caring, gracious and humble manner, but he really went above and beyond to make my Bride feel extra special. All of our guests commented on Robert’s excellent service.

Hubert was our waiter and was focused on providing great service to all our guests.

Our bartender Ramzi did a fantastic job. He was professional, friendly and charming, his service and personality truly added to a wonderful night.

Chef Patrick and Chef Laura stopped by at the end of the evening to make sure all the food was what we expected, which were really appreciated. All of our guests, ourselves included, thought the food was 5 stars.

I’m not sure this falls under Meeting and Events, but Eddie from the Spa is top notch! Eddie has been helping Wendy with the correct color and style for her hair over the past few months. Eddie did her hair for Saturday and made her feel like the most important person in the world. I didn’t think Wendy could be any more beautiful, but Eddie worked magic.

Once again, Wendy and I just want to say thank you to everyone at the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia for a perfect and memorable wedding day.

A dream come true.
We had our wedding in the Grand Ballroom at the Ritz and it will be a wedding that people will be talking about for a long time.
Everything went perfectly. Every need was anticipated. And every staff person was a pleasure to work with...from our wedding coordinator, to our banquet captain, to our bellman, to the front desk staff.
Many of our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to.
It was magical!!

AMAZING!!! I have not one bad thing to say about the Ritz Carlton Philadelphia other than it is a bit expensive to have a wedding here. BUT, it was worth every penny. The whole staff knew me, my family, my husband's family and treated us like royalty every time we called them, had a question or when we were at the hotel. This was especially true for the weekend of the wedding.
The service was unprecedented, the food amazing and every single detail was taken care of. They even had a picture of us dancing our first dance waiting for us in our room the night of the wedding (the first picture we had seen!) along with champagne, rose petals every where and personalized robes. It truly was amazing!
