The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia offers easy access to top sites and events  

PHILADELPHIA, PA. (February 2017) – Philadelphia is a must-visit city, thrown into the spotlight in recent years by hosting the Pope’s visit and Democratic National, and a top pick for the country’s most coveted events. This year, from April 27 – 29, Philadelphia will be home to the 82nd NFL Draft, the first time hosting in over 50 years, and the city is preparing for a great energy and excitement as fans head into the event. Taking place at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, with the selected players running up the iconic “Rocky” steps, the weekend will be full of events with prospective draft picks, red carpets, and kid-friendly festivals.

Philadelphia will also re-open its iconic LOVE Park, which will unveil structural improvements, more green space, and updated concession areas this spring.  The $16.5 million project started last fall and will replace concrete and stone steps with trees, flowers, and crisscrossing fountains.

The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia is centrally located with easy walking and driving distance to the best in the city, and a premier place to stay for spring events and travel as it celebrates a completely refreshed look and feel. Along with the sports fans, sight-seers and art-lovers can make The Ritz-Carlton their home base and take advantage of the “Discover With You” package. The package is available through the end of the year, and includes luxury accommodations, a $50 hotel credit per night, and a “Philadelphia First” themed amenity, starting at $354/night.
