We stayed here Valentines weekend. The "Hotel" which is really a BandB. As far as accommodations, it is very comfortable. I would rate it a 3-4 out of 5. The desk personnell are very nice and accommodating. The breakfast was just ok. Bottom line is we though it was way overpriced for a Bed and Breakfast!

We picked Rittenhouse 1715 because of its character and location - within walking distance to all we wanted to do. Our first perk was an early checking, of course we were staying mid-week, but still nice. The second perk was the upgrade to the Rittenhouse Suite. WOW. What a great room and treat as this trip was for our anniversary.... More

I selected this boutique hotel because of it's proximity to Devon's Seafood Grill. I was so pleased by the service, atmosphere, attention to detail, comfort, cleanliness and quiet room. I especially loved the shower and the comfortable bed. It was such a pleasure and very relaxing. The manager and host were extremely kind, accommodating and went out of their way... More

We had a wonderful time at the Rittenhouse 1715 over the Easter holiday. This is a lovely facility with an outstanding, accommodating staff. We loved the location and the amenities in the hotel, such as the breakfast room, sitting rooms and patio. As is often the case with facilities of this type, the rooms themselves are somewhat small, but this... More

I stayed here over Thanksgiving--I was looking for an alternative to a big hotel, but not looking for a B&B with the duty/expectation to socialize. The rooms are lovely, very clean and comfortable, and the management is warm and friendly. The complimentary breakfast is limited but you can order a more extensive breakfast off a menu. Only caveat: I had... More
