When you walk in you feel like you are walking into a old home on a quaint street in Philadelphia. The front door is along a side street (Rittenhouse) right off of the part. Daniel and his staff took care of us night and day. The room was warm and they brought us a fan when we asked. They knew... More

This 23-room hotel was our choice for a 3-night stay in Philadelphia in early April; we were very happy with our choice. We were in a deluxe (Room 211), which had plenty of space and all the amenities for which one would wish, including a large, flat-screen television (wall mounted), king-size bed, comfortable arm-chairs, and a good bathroom, with a...

We stayed at this darling hotel in March 2014 for two nights. Our room looked like it was the former library of a home. We had bookshelves and a fireplace. We faced the street and had charming windows we were able to open. The service was stellar. I received a phone call the day prior to our arrival, asking if... More

I stayed at the hotel for a night en route from London to Pittsburgh. The Rittenhouse 1715 challenged the taxi driver [why are US taxis so uncomfortable?] but he got there and a new member of staff popped out to welcome me when I missed the front door - in my defence this is three converted houses and the opening...

My wife and I stayed at Rittenhouse 1715 for two nights earlier this week. We found it a convenient and comfortable small hotel in one of the most interesting areas of Philadelphia. The bedroom was spacious and quiet, quite attractively furnished, and with a very comfortable mattress. The only slight difficulty was that the closet, located in the narrow passage... More

My stay was perfect in every way! This hotel exuded royal, but friendly, hospitality in every way. There is a sign in the room that says if you forgot anything that you need while in the hotel, the staff is available 24/7 to go and get it for you. Wow, I don't know any other place that aims to please... More
