The city of “brotherly love” means business for tourists and corporate travelers alike, with world-famous sights to tick off and conferences keeping the major hotels busy, busy, busy. If walking and talking has got you feeling as coiled as a nest of dried linguine, you’ll need a hotel with a super-spa to soften you up and have you ready to face the world again. Here are the best spa hotels in Philadelphia.

In Philadelphia for a crucial business meeting or two? Need to look and feel the part? Worry not – the Rittenhouse Hotel Spa & Club has your back (and face, and shoulders). Go for the 1000 Roses Facial, which uses Bulgarian petals to pep up your tired complexion. Everything practised here – from the first-step aroma therapy to the deep exfoliation – succeeds in bringing you harmony and relaxation. And when you’re ready to step out, this hotel is right in the centre of it all: Rittenhouse Square.

Set in a former neoclassical bank, the hotel itself is a feel-good experience, all lofty ceilings and swathes of marble. And the chakra-aligning Richel D’Ambra Spa & Salon here takes you higher. It specialises in centuries-old East Asian treatments. For a unique journey try the Tibetan-singing-bowls massage using body butter and aromatherapy oil: the bowls are placed on strategic parts of your body to release tension, and are a resounding triumph among guests.

The Underground Spa & Wellness is very much at home in this welcoming hotel.
