Just returned from spending 2 nights at this charming property in a great location just off Rittenhouse Square (literally 1/2 block off the square). Everything is lovely, the staff are friendly and helpful and our room was very quiet and, though small, had everything we were looking for including a very nice bathroom with a large walk-in shower. Each room... More

This was a great place to stay for several days in Philly. It's so close to the square and all the nearby shopping, restaurants and bars. For being in the middle of everything it was very quiet. I never heard any traffic noise or other hotel guests. The staff were attentive, but not overly so. I had help while having... More

We were somewhat disappointed to find this hotel was not on the square, but on a side street which is still called Rittenhouse Sq.Street. After we got over the disappointment of not find our selves on the square, we found the hotel quite charming, and staffed by a most helpful, friendly, and caring staff. They really are the best!

An extensive container garden display spanning the 3 townhouse facades that comprise the 1715 Rittenhouse Inn is the first hint of its charm. Inside, the lobby feels a bit like a large English country estate. Inside one is met with an old world patina and a prompt and genuine welcome from an innkeeper who is so professional you might think... More

We can highly recommend this delightful hotel, in a particularly attractive part of central Philadelphia. It is small, peaceful, very clean, stylish and run with efficiency and care by the most helpful of staff. Highlights for us included the complementary breakfast each morning, and a wine reception each evening in a period drawing-room setting. For those looking for "old-fashioned charm"... More

Be sure you know where you are staying as our taxi driver took us to the big hotel on the square! Rittenhouse 1715 is a great little hotel tucked away around the corner from Parc a great restaurant on the corner of the square. Reception is friendly, rooms are a bit quirky and ours was a bit dark, but it... More

Dear ChrisandVeronica, We do have a fabulous location, it’s true. Very few other places are so close to main streets, yet so quiet as well. Thank you so much for your kind words about the staff and the hotel. We pride ourselves on providing a much different and more personal experience than any of the chain hotels. Our layout, decor,...

Located right at Rittenhouse Square, the hotel is a very nice boutique property. From here you can walk about a mile and a half to the historic Constitution area or a little over a mile in the other direction to the Barnes Foundation. There are many great restaurants in the area, as well—check out Alma de Cuba, which we thought... More

Enjoyed a week stay in June 2014. Found 1715 Rittenhouse on an amazingly quiet street in a restaurant rich section of walkable Philadelphia. What we liked: 1. Hotel was quiet. 2. Bed was comfortable and bath was well appointed. Loved the room door's cipher lock...no key needed! 3. Continental breakfast was plentiful: fresh baked bread, local jams, pastries, apples &... More

Dear OH_Traveler3, I apologize that the WiFi was spotty! Our IT personnel upgraded our WiFi capabilities during the month of June, and now our signal strength is better than ever all throughout the property. We are very pleased that you found the hotel to be quiet, comfortable, and well-appointed. All of those things are very important to us, as they... More

The location was great and our room was adequate. Overall the whole stay was nice and we enjoyed the many things to do nearby. I would rate this a 7 out of 10 for botique hotels. The only complaint would be the pillows, not comfortable to me at all, invest in new pillows Rittenhouse

Best part about the hotel was its location, right off Rittenhouse square with easy access to some of the best restaurants and shopping in the city. Staff was also a positive, welcoming and responsive. The hotel itself has a charming quality, with older/antique decor. Definitely some signs of wear and tear in our room (cracked bathroom tiles and ripped drapes),... More
