My wife and I stayed at Rittenhouse 1715 for two nights earlier this week. We found it a convenient and comfortable small hotel in one of the most interesting areas of Philadelphia. The bedroom was spacious and quiet, quite attractively furnished, and with a very comfortable mattress. The only slight difficulty was that the closet, located in the narrow passage running from the door into the main part of the room, was dark, making it difficult to see the clothes hanging within it, or the key-pad for the in-room safe that it also contained (it would be advisable to have a light fitted in this area, perhaps one internal to the closet and operated by the opening and closing of its doors). Staff were helpful and efficient, and the public areas of the hotel light and spacious. The complimentary glass of wine at the end of the afternoon was a nice touch. The complimentary continental breakfast was more than adequate, though for those who want more substantial cooked breakfasts, these are available on request for a charge. I was initially a little concerned by the parking arrangements, which involved delivering the car oneself to a busy local garage whose operations seemed casual to the point of being somewhat chaotic when I arrived there (the last I saw of my car was its being driven towards a ramp with the driver's door still ajar). But in the event, all worked well, and the $18 a day parking charge was certainly very reasonable for the centre of a major American city. Thus overall, Rittenhouse 1715 deserves its reputation as an efficiently run, upmarket boutique hotel in an attractive period building.
