The Warwick is a historic hotel in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

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 1961 NFL Draft.[3]

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