Inside the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia’s New Meeting Spaces

The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia just completed a $24 million renovation project on 26,000 square feet of meetings, event and conference space. 

Originally built as a reproduction of the Pantheon when it opened in 1908 as The Girard Trust Company, the project aimed to restore the building’s historic charm in its event spaces. On the second and third levels of the hotel are pre-function rooms and 13 meeting rooms that can accommodate groups from 20 to 400 people. The original bank vault now serves as a function room. A variety of layout options and room sizes is available for events ranging in size from small C-level board meetings to cocktail fundraisers and holiday parties.

The hotel has two ballrooms: a 3,075 square-foot petite ballroom and the 6,100 square-foot Grand Ballroom, located on the concourse level, which is the centerpiece of the hotel and can hold up to 600 people. The sky can be admired through the ballroom’s large crystal chandelier as guests look up into the celling, into the oculus and through the top of the rotunda in the lobby. 

Helmed by architect and interior designer, Wimberly Interiors, the meeting spaces have a welcoming neutral color palate and have been updated to reflect a seamless transition of neutral colors through each function room, with a nod to history through historic motifs from the building in the furniture details, with an updated clean aesthetic. Additionally, the updates to the hotel will also include all new guest rooms and a refreshed lobby experience featuring a new restaurant, bar and lounge.
