First off, and as noted by many others posting reviews, this is not a hotel with the luxuries that you find at some of the larger hotels (pool, bar/restaurant, etc.). I very frequently stay at large hotels (Hyatt, Four Seasons, Marriott) and this was one of my first experiences with a hotel like Rittenhouse 1715. It is a boutique and... More

I have stayed several times over the years at The Rittenhouse and it has been consistently superior in terms of service and quality. The rooms are quite spacious for a city hotel, the hotel has the feel of old world elegance and comfort. The corridors and the rooms always smell and look immaculately clean. Service is outstanding. The location is... More

We stayed here 2 nights before our trip to the Caribbean. We greeted warmly and were treated like royalty. We were checked in quickly and showed to our room. It was beautiful and spacious. We were given a an iPad to use during our stay. You don't get that at other hotels. Always friendly faces and greeted by Mr. and... More

We spent 4 nights in this lovely hotel where the graciousness of the staff outdoes it all. The rooms are lovely and luxurious - kept in perfect order yet one never even sees the housekeepers! Even if one could find anything negative - a certain impossibility- the location is suburb.

Absolutely outstanding small hotel in the centre of Philadelphia. Fantastically helpful staff. Simply the best. We stayed for two nights during the week as a "taster" visit to Philadelphia. Because we don't know the city we asked the staff a lot of questions. They couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms are very nice even if they mostly don't have... More

Rittenhouse 1715 was everything I hoped it would be. The staff was welcoming, attentive and more than willing to do anything to make my stay enjoyable whether it was helping unload luggage, providing directions to historical places and recommending restaurants within walking difference. They made me feel like I was an old friend coming to visit. The room was immaculate,... More

Well, yes, there's no view from the rooms, but the comfort, style, elegance, and service at 1715 Rittenhouse are unsurpassed in this price range. Across the Square, at hundreds more per day, you get the views, but not more comfort, charm, convenience, or kindness. Scrupulously clean in all respects. Gorgeous baths. We stayed in two different rooms, and the beds... More

Not a bad hotel at all but for this price I would have expected a nice view, light and clean windows, an air conditioning you could control yourself and a little refrigerator in your room. And most of all that the included breakfast would consist of more than coffee, pastries, jam and crossaints cut in half. Rittenburg 1715 has not.... More

Dear AJo64, Please accept our apologies that the room did not live up to your expectations. There is no excuse for a lack of cleanliness, as you experienced with the windows in your room. As our building is older than most of the surrounding (taller) buildings, and half of a block off of Rittenhouse Square, there isn’t much of a... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice- once in October 2013 and once in May 2014. The location is great- next to many restaurants and shops. The breakfast is really good- berries with yogurt, eggs, bread. The rooms are very nice. The beds are comfortable. There is a nice happy hour. My favorite part of the hotel is the service.... More
