The Warwick ad (1938)

Originally constructed in 1925[2] in an English Renaissance style, the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, and on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places on February 8, 1995.[2] The hotel hosted the 1944 NFL Draft, 1960 NFL Draft and 1961 NFL Draft.[3]

The building has been divided into condominiums and a hotel that has operated as the Radisson Blu Warwick Hotel in the past, but is now an independent hotel, the Warwick Hotel Rittenhouse Square.[4]
