Warped Stairs at Ritz Carlton Philadelphia?


By: Five Star Alliance

Ritz Carlton PhiladelphiaThe stairs leading to what today is The Grand Ballroom at Ritz Carlton Philadelphia (formerly the vault of Girard Bank) are warped on one side. The stairs were built for the ladies to make their “grand entrance” into the vault to retrieve their jewels on Friday for their weekend social event, and their subsequent return on Monday. The warping on that one side is from the traffic up and down—the skirts were long at the time, and there is a banister only on that side. The stairs were left as is.
