We spent our anniversary in Philly bc my girl hadn't watched the Rocky films when we started dating. I fixed that first month. The hotel was great. Very warm and the guys who run it are helpful. The room was big and well appointed the wine and cheese tasting could use some work but it's better than nothing. The parking... More

We spent four days here and thoroughly enjoyed them. Initially I thought that we might be a bit too far away from the downtown area but I needn't have worried at all. The area around Rittenhouse Square is terrific, full of great shopping and excellent restaurants. In fact it outdoes the downtown area by quite a bit. There was a... More

My husband and I got a great deal booking this property using Hotel Tonight, and were really pleased with our experience. We planned to be in Philly on a Sunday evening for some food and sightseeing after visiting family nearby, and took a chance on the app as it seemed to have plenty of inventory. We chose this property because... More

I stayed one night as I had to be at CHOP very early in the morning. I try to stay and cool and unique hotels when I travel, and this one was a good choice. Parking was excellent - directly across the street and not outrageously priced. The girl at the desk was friendly and helpful and offered to call... More

Parking was a little funky, room was a little small but very tastefully decorated. The breakfast was a nice touch. Only stayed 1 night, reception staff was very friendly and got us into our room quickly.

I was in Philadelphia on business. I try to stay in Boutique hotels whenever possible, and I am rarely disappointed with my choice. I was certainly not disapointed this time! The trip was not without its complications, but what trip isn't these days? It was a long flight. My cab driver didn't seem to know exactly where the hotel was... More

The Rittenhouse 1715 is an amazing hotel if you're wanting boutique experience, privacy, quiet, and impeccable service. The staff is genuinely friendly and accommodating and the french decor is inviting and comfortable. It has an amazing downstairs cafe for a full service breakfast with great espresso coffee options. This is atop my list of places to stay in the city... More

We had trouble getting a room in Philadelphia last weekend. We forgot that the Army-Navy game was happening. After calling around we found a room at the Rittenhouse 1715. The hotel is in an older building, but the small lobby and other public areas were very nice. Our room was small, but clean and there were several lamps and electrical... More
