Best of Philly

2009 Hotel Spa

Richel D’Ambra Spa and Salon at the Ritz-Carlton

Whether you opt for mani-pedi or detoxifying body scrub, the Ritz’s soothing, tucked-away spa can trick any maxed-out mind into believing it’s in the middle of a full-fledged vacay. And since you aren’t paying for a room, you can guiltlessly book more than one appointment.
