Rittenhouse 1715, A Boutique Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Charming boutique hotel, attentive staff, nicely appointed room and great location.

Located just off Rittenhouse Square near Curtis Institute, this hotel is in walking distance of dozens of 3-4 star dining options and attractions. They allowed us to check in quite early, and have been helpful in all dealings. The 24 hour coffee and espresso bar is not bad too!

Staff very helpful. Hotel in good location. Room very well appointed and bathroom looked very new.. Location good for our visit to local hospital.

Everything about this hotel is well thought out. Was greeted outside by the manager, who promptly assisted us with our bags. From unloading to check-in, it was less than 5 minutes. It is in an excellent location on Rittenhouse Square and close to everything. Everyone on staff that we met were friendly and helpful. Breakfast reminded me of atypical continental breakfasts at an English bed and breakfast. Very well appointed and classy. Stayed for only one night for a weekend day trip, but will definitely be back another time.

This hotel is nice and the staff was nice. I think it was about a third overpriced. There really isn't anything special about the place to brag about. I also don't have any complaints except for the value it should be cheaper.

Great stay, very charming and well located. Near Plaza and great restaurants

Great hotel and staff. Good breakfast and great wifi.

This hotel is very convenient for shopping and dining. The historic sites are >1 mile away, so if you don't want to do a lot of walking, you would need a cab. The breakfast served was very nice, and Miss Lillian is so friendly and cheerful! Being a small hotel, there was usually only 1 person on duty, so there was some waiting on check-in/out and there is no bellman or valet. You park your own car in a public garage a few blocks away, but you can park right outside for loading/unloading. We had two issues, that may not apply to other rooms, that would prevent us from choosing this hotel again. First, the bathroom had no storage; there was a pedestal sink with a small glass shelf above it, and that was it-we had to keep most of our toiletries in the bedroom which is not ideal. Second, there is no in room thermostat for the A/C, there is a locked control in the hall for the entire floor. We were so hot the first night we asked for a fan-they did find us one and we used it the entire time we were there. That alone will keep me from returning.

When visiting Philadelphia this is the only place we will stay. It's a true gem.

Great location reasonable price Roomy rooms, with very comfortable beds. great helpful staff! Cute cafe with espresso machine that works great.

Small elegant boutique hotel with a European touch

The location, charm and attentive staff made this hotel great. I would stay here again next time I'm in the area.

Stayed here for a business trip. It was a perfect location - great restaurants and stores. Super helpful staff and really clean rooms. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel was a very pleasant surprise. Clean, Comfortable and the Staff was wonderful. Great location. one downside was the desk was not suitable for a laptop - too small and hard to find a plug to charge a phone or computer. Minor problem for such a nice hotel.

Good for couple. Will try again when visit Phillis next time.

I really enjoyed my stay. The staff called local pubs to find a soccer match I was interested in. They couldn't have been friendlier. The room was great, it felt like a blend between a B&B and a traditional hotel. Will always look to stay here on my Philly trips.

We booked a room for ourselves and a room for our daughter & her fellow cadets! great rooms, wonderful place to stay...Parking is always a problem in that part of town, but a great Breakfast made up for it!!

Just Lovely! I have always dreamed of living in one of the classy Philadelphia Row houses. This is your chance to taste the best of the city of brotherly love! Elegant inviting lobby, welcoming staff, beautifully decorated fresh room. modern bath. There is no better address in the City.

This is a very small hotel, quaint, clean rooms, large bathroom for the room size with a very nice, large stall shower with bench and large clean bathroom. They only serve breakfast but do so quite nicely. Overall a very nice stay, bedding and a/c were fine. The room could have been a bit larger and I would prefer a key-card door lock over a code-entry lock. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Staff was friendly and helpful and made me feel they were glad to see me. They had umbrellas to loan due to the weather and breakfast was excellent...freshly squeezed juice and delicious breads. The room was very comfortable and elegant.
