My husband and I had the pleasure of spending a night at the Rittenhouse 1715. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well appointed with luxurious linens and towels, delicious coffee and breakfast. This will be our first choice when in Philadelphia in the future!

My daughter and I stayed at the Rittenhouse 1715 for two nights while she was moving to Philadelphia. Our room was very quiet and comfortable and the staff was friendly and very helpful.

We stayed at the Rittenhouse 1715 for 3 days. This is not a large hotel and therefore misses out on some stuff like ver night room service. But if you like your hotels to feel like living in your own luxurious home, then this is the hotel for you in Philly. We stayed in the Presidential suite, which was a... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in April just prior to leaving for Ireland. I usually stay with family but this was a most delightful gift. Very friendly staff. Quiet little side street but close to so many things to do and great restaurants. Super comfortable would definitely recommend.

I was so impressed with this Hotel. Nested on a side street just around the corner from Rittenhouse Square, this boutique hotel had such a homey feel. Our Junior Suite was roomy, the King bed was so comfortable and the faux fire place really added to the atmosphere. The continental breakfast on the bottom floor reminded me of my hotel... More

We stayed in Philadelphia for two nights. This hotel was amazing. It is a small boutique hotel that is run like a bed and breakfast.

We came for a weekend getaway. For starters this hotel is located in the best area of town bars, restaurants, shopping are all with in steps. The hotel itself is small as you would expect of a boutique hotel but plenty of room to move around in the "superior" room. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Philly is... More

We enjoyed a lovely 2 night stay in this very well located boutique hotel. Special touches such as a tray of Earl Grey tea on our return each afternoon and early evening glass of wine (complimentary ) with fellow guests are extra special. All the staff made us very welcome.

This place is a real gem in Philadelphia. We spent two wonderful nights here. The owner has combined three old town homes into this hotel. Rooms are unique, and it's fun just looking around the place. The staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. The nightly wine reception is relaxing and enjoyable. Each morning there is a Continental breakfast. You can... More

Great location, good bed, sheets,Frette towels but--dust hanging from ceiling and we had quite a small room even at $300 per night. The light shines through the glass bathroom door when putting it on at night causing sleep upset to my partner.
