The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia recently completed a $25 million hotel renewal project. This landmark hotel is inextricably tied to Philadelphia’s past, but the thoughtful restoration modernized it without stripping the storied past. The Ritz-Carlton was originally built as The Girard Trust Company and was completed in 1908. It was designed as a reproduction of the Pantheon in Rome, and the Neoclassical-style structure features 9,000 tons of Georgia marble!
The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia is about to embark on a major renovation.
The facelift for the hotel, located on the Avenue of the Arts, will begin later this year. Wilmberly Interiors are the architects and interior designers for the updates, which will include new guests rooms and meeting spaces, an updated lobby and public spaces, and a new restaurant, bar and lounge. It is slated for completion in spring 2016.
