“Lovely!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We were welcomed warmly and our tie at the hotel was most pleasant. The "standard" room was very comfortable and well appointed (I can only imagine how lovely the deluxe rooms must be!) and the price, which certainly not cheap, is fair. The only complaint we have is about the breakfast--it certainly is not "lavish", as we were told it would be, but very basic and ordinary, which was disappointing. Why orange juice is not included not appropriate, and the baked goods were only fair. Jams, however were delicious. Staff are all most gracious and helpful when we needed directions and assistance. We shall return, breakfast notwithstanding!

The 1715 is really more of an Inn--friendly staff who know your name after one day. The location is perfect--right off Rittenhouse Square with tons of restaurants but on a quiet side street. My only caution--the free continental breakfast is a little sparse--no cut up fresh fruit or yogurt, and pastry's are just average.

What a gem of a hotel! The entire staff was courteous and friendly as well as helpful and knowledgable. The location right off Rittenhouse Square is perfect, but best of all were the amenities. Rooms were small but beautifully appointed with big comfortable beds, plush linens and towels and a wonderful big shower. Complimentary white wine in the afternoon and a lovely continental breakfast (with full breakfast choices available) were a nice bonus. We loved this hotel and would not stay anywhere else in Philly

From the moment we pulled up to the front door to the instant we drove away two days later our stay was as warm, informative, serene, helpful and uplifting as is possible for a beautiful little gem of a boutique hotel to provide. The staff is ably led by owner Jarred Yaron in leaving no stone unturned on guests behalf. Each space ( did a bit of exploring) is furnished to provide a sense of ' returning home' and even the smallest space offered gives one the sense of sanctuary at the end of a day spent experiencing the joys of Philadelphia. The location is perfect and we would wander around the corner to sit in cafes and people watch, or stroll the safe and lovely park in the famous Rittenhouse Square. Restaurants, shops, even Barnes and Noble are within immediate access to the hotel. Not enough space to say more but if you are heading that way by all means stay here!

Room Tip: third floor back is quiet and serene. Rooms vary in size and decor so discuss needs with booking sta...

This lovely little boutique B&B property is located in a great part of Philly - just steps from trendy Rittenhouse square, full of bars and restaurants. It was a little (10-min) walk to the city hall, historic district and convention center - but I still enjoyed strolling the streets. This hotel really stands out for its impeccable service: from arrival to check-out, the front desk staff are top-notch: both very friendly and knowledgeable about the city. Rooms are located in this old carriage-house and the place definitely exudes character and class. The rooms themselves are nice/average, not luxurious but fine - the bathroom was always perfectly clean and with marble accents. The bed was turned down every night. The TV and channel selection was a little disappointing. The heat/AC was primitive but windows opened onto the street - a nice touch.
The included breakfast was quite good - no real hot options, but nice breads, yoghurt, cereal, and coffee. Overall, this is a great place to stay if you like little, charming but well-located unique properties wit history.

If service is at the top of your list, then this is the place for you. Rittenhouse 1715 boasts an awesome location, quaint rooms, and incredible breakfast options. Daniel and Vincent suprpassed our service expectations and were very helpful with dinner suggestions and area interests. The location is perfect for walks to the park and lovely lunches and dinners. The room was comfortable, clean, and cozy. This boutique hotel was a nice break from the normal hotel chains. The individual attention was appreciated and valued. The property is beautiful and has a certain charm you need to see and feel to appreciate. I am looking forward to my return.

Room Tip: I had two room and liked them both. I did not experience any of the issues I had read on other posts...
