Nowadays, more travelers are picking pet-friendly hotels. This kind of new initiative could bring in more footfalls.
The Rittenhouse hotel is getting ready to celebrate its 30th year this June. A $10 million USD renovation got completed only recently. The renovation started in 2012.
Updates will be carried out to further enhance customer satisfaction, but all the recent effort focuses on pets. A fresh in-room menu launched last Thursday, inspiring the hotel visitors.

Reginald Archambault, General Manager, told reporters, “ We believe that dogs and cats or pets for that matter pets are extended members of the visitor’s family. They deserve to be pampered at an out prestigious hotel.”
The hotel, Reginald clarified, previously cared for pets with homemade gluten-free biscuits, mineral water, and soft beds.

Philadelphia’s hotel business is seeing an upward trend, with close to nine hotels set to launch this year and next year.
