Thanksgiving in the City of Brotherly Love

Thanksgiving marks the turning point between fall and winter and ushers in the holiday season. The last of the fall foliage begins to drop along with the temperature. The city comes alive with the lights and excitement that represent the holidays.

Our hotel in Rittenhouse Square provides a convenient location ideal for taking advantage of some of the best Thanksgiving activities in Philadelphia. It’s a holiday meant for spending time with family, eating delectable food, and taking in a little history; and there is no better place to spend it than in the City of Brotherly Love.

Start the holiday weekend off with one of Philly’s greatest traditions: the 6ABC Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade. The country’s oldest Thanksgiving Day parade will be celebrating its 98th year and is sure to be a memorable event the whole family will enjoy. Featuring floats and balloons of some of your kids’ favorite cartoon characters as well as performances by famous musical guests, your Thanksgiving in Philadelphia will bring an unforgettable start to the holidays.

The parade ends right outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art where you can find the best view of the festivities. The Rittenhouse is located just a short 10-minute drive from the museum, giving our guests easy access to the parade.

After the early morning celebrations have ended, head back to the comfort of our luxury accommodations. We take the stress of cooking a big Thanksgiving meal away with our delicious and hearty brunch, served all day. For just $105 a person, you’ll be able to spend more time relaxing with your family and taking in the sights of the city.

Wake up the next morning and spend Black Friday near Philadelphia’s premier shopping destinations. The Rittenhouse Hotel remains in close proximity to luxury retailers such as Barney’s, Lagos, Egan Rittenhouse, and more so you can easily cross a few names off your shopping list. Indulge in the ultimate luxury shopping experience with our exclusive Rittenhouse Shopping Package.
