The 98-room Rittenhouse leads the deluxe pack with extra-large rooms (450 square feet, minimum), dreamy 310-thread-count linen sheets and pillowtop mattresses, vigilant service, and tasteful, if slightly tired, furnishings. Centrally located, it edges the city's toniest square and is around the corner from Walnut Street boutiques and the fail-safe restaurants Le Bec-Fin and Striped Bass. Not that there's any need to leave the premises: Go elliptical at the expansive fitness center, then melt into a rosemary-mint wrap at the 10,000-square-foot spa. Follow with dinner at the Lacroix, which serves an upscale global-fusion fare in a serene dining room with clever box-kite chandeliers and olive velvet.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005
