Wow, a gem of a find. Book directly with site for best rates. Lovely, intimate, reminded us of somewhere in Europe. Perfect continental breakfasts. Accommodations are very comfortable. Love the art displayed and available to purchase. Great location to centre.

This lovely hotel has a great location and wonderful charm! It's in a quiet street right off Rittenhouse Square, so walking distance to great restaurants! The rooms are larger than most city hotels. The bathroom was roomy and the shower was huge!! They have a lovely continental breakfast and wine every evening. The staff is extremely nice and very accommodating!... More

My daughter and I were completing a cross-country road trip and the 1715 was the perfect cap to our week. The exterior was cute and inviting, Tom and others went over the top to help us to our room and to find a great dinner on a perfect Friday in summer. The historic district is 1.3 miles away....would recommend a... More

I was impressed by the courteous front desk...I was not impressed by the broken heater and then the broken portable heater that was brought from the basement. The breakfast the next morning was delicious and very cozy. The room was clean. The bathroom was good. Price was very surprisingly affordable. Overall decent stay.

Boutique hotels are a mixed bag. They are usually charming places with either poor or insufficient services. Not so at Rittenhouse 1715. First, the location of this hotel cannot be beat. It is right off the square and in the center of one of the best Philly neighborhood. You really are in the center of everything. Beautiful park, great shopping... More

Quaint Philly row homes that've been converted into a quaint hotel w/ new modern baths, king bed w/ Frette linens. No on site parking, but Latimer garage is 2 short blocks away. Close to Rittenhouse Square, Walnut Street shopping/dining. Staying at 1715 made me feel like I was staying w/ old friends; cozy, comfortable.

One charmed night We spent only one night at this boutique hotel but it was enough to see the real value in it. First, it is located on a rather quiet, narrow street, Rittenhouse Square, which does run trough the Rittenhouse Square proper. Everything, museums, Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, is close, within walking distance. Hotel's facade is really beautiful, there... More

I stayed here after a late flight into Philadelphia. Unfortunately I can not go into too much detail as I arrived after 1am and left again around 8:00am. The person at the front desk was extremely helpful and welcoming. it is actually more of a greeting station than a desk. The hotel itself was charming and I had a king... More
