Thank you fellow Trip Advisor reviewers for recommending Rittenhouse 1715! From the wine reception to the helpfulness of the staff and the niceness of rooms and breakfast, everything has been great and as good as others have described. My husband is using the free pass to a local fitness studio as I write this.
I am suffering from bruised ribs which make all movement painful. The bed in our first room was a bit too soft, so turning over woke me up often during our first night. When the housekeeper asked me how I slept, I mentioned the pain. Surprise! When we returned to the hotel after wandering the city several hours later, the staff had upgraded us to a Junior Suite and moved all of our things! WOW! *That's* service :D!
We prefer small, personal hotels / inns, and the decision to stay here is definitely one we will repeat the next time we come to Philadelphia.
