"Quiet haven to spend the holiday week"
Our stay was very pleasant. The staff was courteous, professional and welcoming.The room was very clean, the bed comfortable, no noise at night.I liked the warm atmosphere of the room, the stylish decor, very unique. The bathroom was very clean and had all the amenities. The only hitch was getting the right temperature to work, it was either too hot or too cold. Maybe next time it will be perfect. I would definitely come back to Rittenhouse 1715.

"Little Gem in Philadelphia"
Lovely boutique hotel. Despite arriving late, welcome wine was provided to us in our room. Large bed, decent bathroom, with Molton Brown accessories. Also, amazing selection of TV channels. The free cafe breakfast was also a nice touch. Totally recommend for a Philadelphia Center City stay.

"Excellent location"
Couldn't ask for more attentive or helpful service. Wish the room had more comfy seating but it was fine as is. We had a little trouble controlling the temp, but by opening the windows all was fine. And since we didn't report this to the management until we were leaving, we didn't give them a chance to do anything about it. Overall, it was a very nice experience.

Nice little hotel. We were in town for the Phila marathon, they were kind enough to have breakfast available early for the runners and their fans. We could walk to the start/finish and many stores and restaurants. It's right downtown. We'll be back next year!

"Rittenhouse 1715-Sophisticated Comfort"
Everything about Rittenhouse 1715 was top notch. Each staff member was expertly trained and went the extra mile to anticipate our needs and provide excellent service. Fabulous location; around the corner from "everything"! Breakfast was fresh, tailored made, and incorporated farm-fresh imgredients from local providers. This gem set the stage for a memorable Philly weekend. We were pampered, rested, able to enjoy all the city has to offer. A must "stay".

"22 Room Boutique"
Real boutique hotel. Three Revolutionary townhouses put together. Outstanding location. Furnishings and finishes are very good. Breakfast is meager but for a little extra money they will cook you eggs. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Pricing is good but I recommend at least the second level of room (deluxe superior).

"Well intentioned but...."
While check in is 3pm, we arrived before noon. It was a quiet Tuesday. There are 23 rooms. We went out to lunch and came back at 2 to find out our room was not ready while others were-unoccupied rooms. They had no system for prioritizing rooms with housekeeping. They claimed they were not a large hotel???? We expected more individualizing at a "boutique" hotel. They gave us a room then on a higher floor without the fireplace we had requested. The room certainly could have benefitted from one lounge chair. Staff was helpful but seemed to lack common sense. It was an attractive hotel in a great location near Rittenhouse Square. The breakfast room and service was gracious and attentive.

Response by Rittenhouse 1715, A Boutique Hotel
Dear Paul, We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. While it may have been quiet at noon on Tuesday, on Monday evening, we were completely sold out. As a result, we did not have any rooms available for check-in upon your arrival. We had asked if you would like to receive a telephone call when the room was ready, and there was no indication made that you wished to be notified, nor that you would return before 3pm, which is our check-in time. We were able to make a Superior room available for you upon your return at 2pm. Also, please note that you had booked one of our Superior Rooms, which do not have fireplaces, and did not receive any request of a fireplace until your entry to the room. We apologize if there was any miscommunication. Thank you very much for your kind words about the attractiveness of our hotel, and your pleasure with our breakfast staff. We hope that you will be willing to try us again; as all of our rooms are unique, we can certainly work together to find one that has everything that you wish to have in your room.

The room was cozy and comfortable-home away from home. Location was ideal, walking distance from a number of very nice eateries and restuarants and the theatre district.

"Good location - Great staff"
We were there for three nights. It's about a block from Rittenhouse Sq. It's three floors, but there is only a cut through on the second floor, so if you room is where ours was, you have to walk up the final floor. The check in staff gladly bought all of our luggage up and down for us, but if you can't climb stairs this might be an issue.

"Just one night in Philadelphia"
Even though we were in Philadelphia for just one night, we would definitely recommend the Rittenhoue 1715 for a more leisurely stay. Located on a quiet street just off Rittenhouse Square, it is conveniently located an easy walk to the Opera House and the Kimmel Center, and all sorts of restaurants. Our room was very spacious-- it even had a fireplace. The bathroom was also spacious, with top quality amenities, including bathrobes. The only thing that could be improved was the bathroom lighting-- it was not quite bright enough for putting on makeup. The staff was lovely: welcoming, helpful, but not intrusive. The breakfast room offered a complimentary Continental breakfast that was quite generous. Hot items could be ordered from the kitchen at a charge. If you enjoy a traditional, historic setting, the Rittenhouse 1715 is an excellent choice.

"Surprisingly accommodating and well-located."
Didn't know much about this when I booked it and frankly thought I was booking at the Rittenhouse Hotel. I was very pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious, clean and well-appointed with an eclectic and tasteful mix of antique furniture. The bathroom was amazingly clean and I very much enjoyed the large tiled shower. The staff were extremely friendly, offering me coffee/tea when I checked in at 11pm. A slow elevator but not an issue as the wide carpeted stair cases are the way to go in this historic low-rise building.

Dear Accidentally in Philly, As we are a smaller property, it does happen that some guests reserve our hotel when they intend to stay at the larger Rittenhouse Hotel. We are so glad that you were pleasantly surprised! Our front desk and housekeeping staff do all that they can to make sure that our guests are comfortable, including providing coffee and tea 24 hours a day. It is true that our elevator is a bit slow, but as we are only three stories, it is not difficult to reach any room via the staircases. We hope to see you again the next time you’re in Philadelphia! Kind Regards, Renee

Dear Anonymous, Thank you very much for your compliments about the location and staff. We apologize that the lighting in the room was not to your liking. The hotel management is considering renovations, and adding overhead lighting to all of the rooms is at the top of the list. In the meantime, our staff is more than willing to bring additional lamps to the room to add more light. We hope that you will be able to return to our hotel the next time you’re in Philadelphia!

The hotel was wonderful. Even before checking out we were already talking about coming back. The area is safe and very convenient to several eating options and attractions. Our bed was super soft causing us to sleep in every day of our stay. That never happens for us when we stay at a hotel. 24 hour coffee and tea service was a nice perk!

"Cozy little space in the center of activity"
The hotel information suggested stopping there first before going to a garage they would recommend. But there was a street fair with closed off blocks, so we called the desk on our way in and they immediately and patiently gave us directions to the garage and then from the garage to the hotel. We arrived an hour before check-in, and the fabulous two people at the desk welcomed us, chatted with us, and brought us tea in lovely china cups. When we returned from our event that night, a different receptionist told us her interesting life story and brought us another tray of tea before we headed to our room. It was a unique experience for us - a friendly place to 'come home to' instead of a huge hotel in which we'd be anonymous. We have already recommended it to friends and family in just the first few days back.

I stayed at this hotel last September and was very impressed. It was just as good this time. Great location to stroll the picturesque streets of central Philly. And the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I needed some assistance with the printer in their business space and the front desk person came right up to help me even though she had to leave her post (with a sign that said she would be back in a few minutes). Someone also calls the day before your arrival to see if there is anything they can do to help you. The staff goes the extra mile at this hotel.

First of all I have a complaint about Hotels.com. When I made this reservation I was never notified by e-mail with a confirmation. I didn't remember until I called the Rittenhouse 1715 after I called the Rittenhouse Hotel on my stay or rate. I thought that my rate was less then $200.00, but I had no record of the hotel stay.You just might have a problem with your reservations system. My stay at the hotel was very pleasant, very one on one customer service. Highly recommend the Rittenhouse 1715.
