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 friend and I stayed at the hotel on a night that we had tickets to a concert at Wells Fargo Center. We meant to stay at the Rittenhouse Hotel where we were going to have tea. The mistake was a wonderful one! The ambiance at the Rittenhouse 1715 is just so special. It's has an intimate atmosphere with lovely... More

I've have stayed at Rittenhouse a few times as I travel to Philly often, and it has become one of my favorite places in the whole city. The location and accommodations are perfect, and the staff continues to be courteous and hospitable. I look for no other place to stay and can't wait for my next visit.

This is a great little hotel. Staff is unfailingly friendly and helpful. It is an old building so the elevator is small and floors are not even in some places but that didn't put me off. Rather reminded me of boutique hotels in Europe. Also like those hotels, R1715 also has continental breakfast included. The staff at breakfast room was... 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!
