Philadelphia’s luxe hotel The Rittenhouse today announced the planned late summer opening of The Rittenhouse Spa & Club – Hair by Paul Labrecque.

Pursuitist has the first glimpse at the details of the near 15,000-square-foot space, which will complete the hotel’s multi-million dollar renovation started in 2012.

The Rittenhouse Spa

Inspired by Jean Paul Gaultier’s collection, 5,000 square foot Spa features a baroque palette and a blend of luxe materials, including black stone and glass. The eight treatment rooms will include Philadelphia’s first-ever Spa Suite, a special spa room designed just for couples and small groups.

The suite features a dressing area, bathroom, rain showers, two treatment beds, and cocktail offerings. Hello, would this not be the perfect location for a bachelorette party or decadent mother-daughter spa day?

The new spa menu includes a variety of custom services and signature treatments like the Natura Bissé “Citrus Drench” body treatment and a “Detox” facial designed for frequent travelers.

The Rittenhouse Club

It’s nice to see that locals can also join in the fun of this new club, available for memberships and hotel guests alike. Their new health club features equipment by Technogym, Advantage Fitness Products and RealRyder® Indoor Cycling bikes.

Our favorite part? A dedicated stretching space complete with ballet bar.

Hair by Paul Labrecque

The Paul Labrecque Salon brings the Manhattan-based stylist’s talents a bit further south. Recognized by Vanity Fair as one of the “Top 3 Stylists” in the country, Labrecque is a regular stylist at shows for New York Fashion Week and creator of his own line of luxury hair care products.

Cozy up in one of 10 stations for a cut, color, or makeup touchup – the salon is using Kevyn Aucoin products.

Inspired by Alexander McQueen’s wedding dress collection, the salon’s design is as light and airy as the spa is dark and sensuous, using various shades of white and light.

There will also be a private two-chair gentleman’s barber shop and grooming area, featuring classic vintage statements with contemporary details. Signature services include the hour long Indulgent Shave, as well as a fine scotch and a cigar bar.

Additional enhancements already available at the property include five spectacular Park Suites, newly decorated event spaces, guestroom and lobby enhancements and updates to the food and beverage at the hotel, including the Mary Cassatt Tea Room and the sophisticated new Library Bar.
