“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We just returned from an overnight trip to Philadelphia. We stayed at the Rittenhouse 1715. This small hotel is such a treasure! There are just enough rooms for the friendly, inviting staff to remember the names of all guests. Not one detail was overlooked during our stay. The location is perfect, within walking distance of nearly everything. My only regret is that we stayed just one night. We found our new favorite hotel in Philadelphia! Thanks to all the staff for their hospitality.

We made the choice based on its rating and were very happy about our stay. It is boutique hotel w/ 23 rooms, very quiet, and no heavy traffic like that at some big hotels.

- Perfect location: a block from the rittenhouse square, tons of gourmet restaurants and shopping in 5 min. walk, a quick taxi ride to all the museums
- Quiet and tastefully decorated room, clean, comfortable bedding
- Nice breakfast: for an additional $5-10, you can order hot dish like eggs and freshly squeezed orange or vegi juice.
- Super nice staff, particularly Marian and Vincent. They are professional, warm, friendly and give excellent recommendation to restaurants. The nice staff really made our stay special.

Highly recommend!

Room Tip: We stayed at superior room for 2 nights. For a longer stay, I'd go for a larger room to have mor...

I stayed at this hotel for a week and I have never gotten such good service at any other hotel I have stayed at before. The staff at Rittenhouse 1715 is wonderful, if you need something they will find a way to make it work. They are all very friendly and will do everything in their power to make you stay as memorable and comfortable as possible. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel for your experience in Philadelphia!

This was the best service I have ever received. They call you a week in advance for special needs and they remembered the ice I had requested for icing my knees from a surgery a few weeks ago. The location was perfect, 1 block off Rittenhouse square, which is loaded with restaurants and bars. The rooms were well designed and very comfortable, the cafe was also great service and the breakfast was excellent! I highly recommend this beautiful boutique hotel with personal first class service!

This was our first visit to Philadelphia and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel location. From start to finish of our 2 night stay, the service was excellent - from carrying our bags in from the car to bringing hot water and a selection of teas to our room after a long rainy day of sightseeing. The breakfast room was charming with its flowery china and American musical classics for our listening pleasure. The ambience was such a nice change from hotel chains. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor. Very quiet and good AC. Elevator only goes to 2nd floor but fine if you...

1715 Rittenhouse is a charming small hotel with the pleasures of a bed and breakfast, but with the amenities of a standard hotel. The property is lovely with period furniture, fireplace in the room and a lovely and spacious bath. It is located on Rittenhouse Square, which is not the heart of Philadelphia, but a very nice area with parks and great restaurants in the surrounding area. What makes this property outstanding is the quality of the service. It is very personal and performed with respect and courteousness in every instance. Marian was so helpful with restaurant suggestions and support with an unexpected late arrival. I highly recommend this property for its charm, the beautiful and cozy rooms and the outstanding service.

We booked 8 days at this hotel and I must say that we were perfectly satisfied with the experience. Daniel, the general manager, and his staff, Marian, Tanya, Renee, Emma, Vincent, and kitchen staff including Linda and Cindy, and go-to guy Christian...all rendered exceptional service above and beyond anything we had expected, not just once, but every day! I highly recommend this hotel and hope your experience will be as nice as ours!
