After the anonymity of a large DC hotel, how nice to stay where you're acknowledged and recognised each time you pass through reception. Our room was tastefully decorated, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean - and what joy to find staff who were happy to talk with you and ensure you enjoyed your Philly stay.

I really liked this hotel, which was located on a quiet side street near Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. Our room was pretty good, nice furnishings, good size and comfy bed. It was clean and had excellent housekeeping. A couple of niggles - the wifi was dreadful and there was no water provided in the room - you had to pay... More

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

We are quite proud of the fact that neither our rooms nor our staff are “cookie-cutter,” as we all have our own uniqueness that provides a more personalized experience. Our location near Rittenhouse Square does offer a lot of options for restaurants, shopping,... 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

Dear Kimberly T, Thank you very much for your kind words about our flower display. The flowers were hand-picked and displayed by one of the owners, who takes a lot of a pride in what she has cultivated. It is true that all of our rooms are unique and include different amenities.

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
