Wanted to love this more but...
First off, this hotel is not on Rittenhouse square but a small side street off the square. The staff graciously allowed us to check in early but - the thermostat in the room didn't work. It was 66 degrees. Apparently since the remodel temperature is controlled from the hallway. So, why have a thermostat in the room? Not clear. The TV didn't work. And the electric fireplace didn't work. They moved us to another room no problem. This was better but the smell of pot in the room, either from the street or from a connecting room was potent. Bfast buffet was very meager and we took to eating at Parc around the corner. Finally, the staff, while nice, were new to hotel and unsure how things worked. None of them knew the area and could give advice. We love the area and the hotel has potential but as it currently is, a disappointing experience.

Every room is different. We had a basic room that felt like an upscale apartment with fireplace and spiral stairs.

This property is beautifully updated and very clean. It’s in a historic neighborhood in Philly and we were able to walk to very nice restaurants and Rittenhouse Square! We felt safe and really enjoyed our stay. The staff at 1715 were all very accommodating and welcoming. We would love to stay there again!

4/10 Fair

The heater didn't work in my room, which made the room uncomfortably cold at night. The shower wasn't very clean; upon entering, I discovered a clump of hair (!) on the shower wall. The walls of my room were thin, so I heard noise from adjacent rooms. There was no writing desk and the chair was awkwardly proportioned for use as a laptop chair.

Such a quaint little property right on Rittenhouse Square. It has the charm of a boutique hotel, while also offering modern decor and features like a phone charging station, a beautiful rainfall shower head and squeaky clean bathroom. The check in assistant walked us to our room, where water bottles and chocolates were waiting for us.
