The concept for the transformation of The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia is inspired from its historic past and is influenced by modern day design trends.

This historical treasure, originally built as The Girard Trust Company, was completed in 1908, and is a reproduction of the Pantheon in Rome. The neoclassical style structure features 9,000 tons of Georgia marble.

The building’s banking history has been incorporated into the design palette used throughout the hotel, which pulls through the sophisticated rich colors of precious metals and currency.

The hotel’s location on the Avenue of the Arts also serves as design inspiration. Within the hotel you will find displayed an extensive art collection that celebrates the Avenue’s cultural prominence as the art, music, theatre center of Philadelphia.
