WALKING TOUR OF PHILADELPHIA

The best way to see Philadelphia is on foot. That way you are sure not to miss out on everything our city has to offer. The Warwick Rittenhouse Square makes a perfect start/finish line. A great adventure is only a pair of comfortable walking shoes away. Everything is nearby. The Philadelphia Convention Center is an easy walk away, as is Independence Hall, where the United States was founded. Next door is that great icon of American Independence, the Liberty Bell. World-class shopping, dining, and entertainment are also within easy walking distance.

THE PERFECT PHILADELPHIA DAY

For 90 years The Warwick has provided guests an opportunity to enjoy an authentic Philadelphia experience. Ideally located in the historic Rittenhouse Square, there is a nearly endless array of things to see and do. We recommend exploring the historic sites, like Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, in the early part of the day before the crowds begin rolling in. As a mid-day break, stop by our historic salon for a quick refresh, then go shopping on Walnut Street which is home to a selection of high-end retailers. There is no better way to cap off your day in Philadelphia than a gourmet dinner at Prime Rib, a local institution inspired by the iconic supper clubs straight out of 1940s Manhattan.
