We were really looking forward to visiting the Old Rittenhouse to celebrate our anniversary, but left very disappointed. The staff seemed a bit disinterested and aloof, but we overlooked it. The food was adequate, but didn't seem quite enough. Our room was also not as nice as advertised. Even though things were not quite what we expected, we still tried to focus on enjoying ourselves. We were looking forward to a nice fire in our room that evening, but had a problem with the wood not burning properly . We brought this to the attention of one of the staff members twice, but all we were given was some newspaper. My husband spent most of the evening frustrated trying to start and keep the fire going, which did not lead to an enjoyable evening for either of us. When we later brought this to the attention of the owner the next day, he was rude and insulting. The overall rating would probably be higher if we were not for this response. Needless to say, we cannot recommend the Old Rittenhouse.
