HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2016

My wife and I had a very nice experience at this small hotel located a block off Rittenhouse Square in Center City Philly. Extremely helpful & friendly staff, very clean well appointed room on 3rd floor. Within walking distance of many of Philly's sites. Miss Lydia took very good care of us at breakfast. We would certainly come back. More

My wife and I stayed at 1715 when in town for a concert - we booked last minute. This property is a refreshing change from chain hotels. Its cleaner, nicer, and far more welcoming than any hotel I've visited in years. Can't say enough positive things about it! Excellent!

Lovely boutique hotel steps away from Rittenhouse Square! We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay here. Comfortable rooms, excellent location, and helpful staff all combine to make for a pleasant stay. The daily continental breakfast is limited but there were definitely enough options to satisfy us. Miss Lydia is a gem, making each guest feel welcomed. If your travels take you... More

Cute and romantic little hotel. European style and size. No grand size rooms but it makes it up with charm! The staff is sweet and eager to make your stay memorable. Loved the complimentary wine hour and fire. Romantic. The hotel is perfectly located for walking about the city. It's a few feet to the Rittenhouse Square. The bars on... More

I loved everything about this hotel - from the room to the breakfast to the staff. The room was comfortable (king bed) and nicely decorated. I loved the bathroom shower and the amenities were a nice touch. My room was not dark at all (as another reviewer mentioned). To the contrary, it was a pleasant respite and I wouldn't change...

The hotel is centrally located, yet on a nice quiet street. The lobby is nice and everything is very clean including the rooms--a big plus. The service was very friendly and whenever we needed something the staff was happy to help. Those are the pros. There are a few cons. The price-to-value is a bit out of line. The breakfast... More

The Rittenhouse 1715 is billed at a Boutique Hotel so my expectations were not high. But I was surprised when I made the mistake of having a car and the hotel had no parking. They suggested I park the car three blocks away. The continental breakfast was scant. (the Chef was away.) The rooms were dark. There were too few... More

The staff is extremely helpful and attentive, the rooms are lovely, and wine & cheese is served in the sitting room in the evenings. There are always cookies and hot beverages available. Rooms are decorated in a luxurious but comfortable, historic-looking style. Marble bathrooms, beautiful towels. Breakfast is fine, but not great. Good espresso machine, fresh juice, cold hard-boiled eggs,... More
