    The staff was incredibly gracious. They printed out directions to the subway and made me feel comfortable with riding it. Breakfast was wonderful, scones, bread, pastries, cereal, tea, coffee, juice, etc. just fabulous.

    Loved the service. Coming in off the road, someone was right at my car door for check-in

    It is pricey, but it is in the "high rent" district of Philadelphia

    Absolutely fantastic staff, all so friendly and helpful. The hotel had so much character and really unique. And a great location for visiting so many sights in the city, surrounded by such a selection of great restaurants.

    Absolutely nothing, we just loved everything about this hotel.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my one night stay. The location is terrific-close to the square, but very quiet. The hotel is lovely-great old building well rehabbed and well appointed. The staff could not have been nicer or more accomodating. I would definitely stay here again when in Phildelphia and have already recommended the hotel to friends and family.

    Our room was very clean. The bedding (Frette linens) was high quality. Our floor was quiet. The staff were very helpful and customer-oriented. The basement cafe, although windowless, was a cozy and pleasant for a light breakfast.

    There were two problems. The first was that although the neighborhood is relatively safe, the front door was not manned at all times. Anyone could walk in without being detected. This is unacceptable. The second was that there was no hot water on our side of the building until after breakfast. The front desk arranged for us to use a vacant room in the other wing to shower, which was great. However, this made me wonder if this is a fairly frequent occurrence.

    Fabulous

    Size: small Comfort level: luxury Personal attention

    Name and Address: very confusing: there are at least 4 or 5 so-called "Rittenhouse" hotels, all at the same "Rittenhouse Square" in Philadelphia. It is exceptionally hard to find the hotel, even with gps. The hotel should really change it's name and indicate right up front to incoming guests that they are very hard to find and locate and that special care needs to be taken to find them. We ended up unloading at two different "Rittenhouse" hotels close by, before finding this Rittenhouse "1715" (sic ......., 1715, what does that mean ????), a major inconvenience and settingh you off on the wrong foot. As such we would not recommend this hotel to friends, unless the hotel changes its name and highlights it's weird address.

    Fabulous location and very comfortable bed.

    The wood furniture in the room was not very good quality, in fact I was afraid I might break it.

    I loved my stay at this fabulous hotel. It is beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable and the friendly staff provides over-the-top service! It is within walking distance of area attractions and many dining and shopping options. It would be difficult to find a better hotel option in Philadelphia!

    Small and fairly intimate. Staff got to know you over a few days, and were very helpful. Liked the atmosphere of a small hotel in an upmarket part of town
