My daughter gathered 12 of my best friends for a birthday celebration. She lives in Philly and picked the Korman RittenHouse for our stay.
We had (2) 2-bedroom/2bathroom apartments on the 5th and 6th floors overlooking Rittenhouse Park - Great view!
These are not hotel rooms so if you're looking for crowded lobbies, noisy vending machines and food trays left outside the rooms - go elsewhere.
These are truly beautifully decorated apartment suites with fully appointed and well designed kitchens with refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave, garbage disposal and even a washer and dryer that sits off the kitchen. The huge living room has a dining room table with six chairs; 2 full sized comfortable fold -out couches flanking a (nonworking but pretty) fireplace; a writing table and chair adjacent to the fireplace and two wing chairs and small table near the window. There's also an entertainment center with a large TV. The Queen and King bedrooms are spacious and have great closet space (the King has a walk - in closet; the queen holds a linen closet full of bath and hand towels and wash cloths). The spotless bathrooms have pedestal sinks, marble tiles and are stocked with Aveda hair and bath products. The facility has a great fitness (every machine works!) and different types of yoga classes are held daily. There's no restaurant on site but a very lovely coffee shop connected to the facility. You could also walk a few steps down the street to a 24-hour Wawa store for supplies.
The front desk staff are true professionals, caring and helpful in everyway and very knowledgeable with the area. The housekeeping staff were wonderful and also very efficient (never had to call about the rooms not being kept) The only thing that will be a challenge is overnite parking - a little pricey for some but if you're from the NYC/NJ area like me you come to expect that as part of the price of travel.
So, If you want to step out of the hotel/motel "box" and live in an upscale "home away from home" enviornment - I'd recommend Korman RittenHouse for sure!!
