I'm a fan

I have very positive feelings about this place. The best part is the shuttle in the morning. It drops you off within 45 seconds of the law school. In the winter I don't wear my coat in the van and often don't bother putting it on between the van drop-off and the law school.

The facilities aren't flashy, but are more than sufficient...they spent on the lobby and are renovating apartments gradually, but I'm not in one of the renovated ones. Still definitely meets my needs.

The maintenance staff is super responsive and requests are attended to, in my experience, within 48 hrs.

Location is fantastic!! It's right between University City and Center City, which means that you are proximate to school activities at Penn and also proximate to social activities downtown. You're 5 blocks from target, 3 blocks from Trader Joe's, dry cleaner in the basement, 1 block from Rite Aid, and 3 blocks from a liquor store. There are also a number of bars and restaurants within 5-10 minute walk!!

Security is pretty solid. There's a fob for the elevators; desk guys in the lobby 24/7 who recognize most residents, call you if you have a visitor, and let them up for you. Very convenient. Similar protocol if you order food...hold delivery at the desk and call you for pick-up.

The gym is fine, but if you have high standards/needs, then it may underwhelm.

I'm on the 2nd floor, which means a quick elevator ride, but my friends on the 32nd and 33rd floor, who spend longer in the elevator, have the most gorgeous views in the mornings and evenings!

That's all I can think of.

Solid option for any Penn grad student

This is a fantastic building with tons of space, a decent workout room, a dry cleaner on the bottom floor, a 24/7 front desk that receives packages, and a frequently running shuttle to campus. It's safe and easy to walk to from just about anywhere in Center City or University City. The downside is the price, but I got a discount on an overly large unit for me since it was the only one on its floor that hadn't been refurbished in the past 2 years. This building always has a long list of people looking to fill apartments, and a huge percentage of the tenants are Penn grad/med/law students and early professionals.

amazing staff!

Great building staff. You share laundry with your floor. They’re updating the apartments and I’m in one of the renovated ones. Heat is electric and you’re responsible for your electricity ($50 in the summer and $120 for the coldest month). Parking in the attached garage is $130/ month. They allow cats ($500 pet deposit). Security deposit is an entire month’s worth of rent. They’re flexible with your move out date if you need to extend for the bar exam etc. Gym is a little old looking but it works well.

Great Value for Money

2400 Chestnut is a wonderful building with very responsive management, reasonable rent for which you get quite a few amenities, and a convenient location close to both the hospital and Center City.

Not many frills, but for the things you need, it does well

2400 Chestnut isn’t going to make you feel that you’re living it up, but it’s got sturdy amenities (and in the off-chance something goes wrong, the management/repair people will be super on top of it), no pests (haven’t seen an actual insect in the apartment, ever), and good security. Other perks include the small gym downstairs, shuttle (can get you to school and back), and the nice doormen (who also handle mail). For proximity to center city, every other apartment building in the area will be significantly more expensive (i.e. 2116 Chestnut, Riverloft) - with the exception of Riverwest (which is much more run-down than 2400 Chestnut).

Definitely recommend

Very good place. A lot of amenities and great things in the area (e.g. 24 hour rite aid). Close to law school. Negative is that it's loud sometimes.

Overall solid apt

Apt definitely does the job. It's not overly nice or filled with amenities but I can't complain. There's a gym, free cable, and amazing shuttle in the morning (which turns into a mini school bus for Penn grad students).

Great Value and Location

Pros:

- Free cable, free 24/7 gym
- Free shuttle to Penn campus every morning
- Friendly management, doormen

Cons:
- Not much of a community with other Wharton/Penn students here, unlike other buildings

Fitler Square Reviews

128 reviews
The neighborhood is perfect for my needs. I am 1 block from the Schulykill park (and the running/biking trail) (and dog park, basketball courts, tennis courts). I'm also half a block from Fitler Square. I am about 7 minutes via bike from CHOP and on closer to my clinic site than the hospital. I'm north of South Street so closer to the action and very close to the gym. Also Delancey is a very good looking street.
Wharton bubble. I love it. Decent restaurants-- not as many fast+healthy+good-value meal options nearby as I'd like but many nice places. Nightlife is what Wharton makes it. Easy walk to some cool stuff in town.

Chestnut street has more of a homeless problem than I'd like but that will be hard to avoid in general, has not been a problem for me personally.
Couldn't be better. Walk to my favorite restaurants and bars in less than 5minutes. Walk to my gyms/work out studios in as little as 4 min. 1.5 blocks away from bus stop and Septa trolley. Trader Joes down the block as is Rite Aid, CVS, multiple take-out restaurants. Can walk to work in 20 mins. Many residents live nearby-social hub.
Referenced this in my other section. But really solid. Nice to be between university city and center city; good bar/restaurant scene! I selected driving for how I get to school bc the others didn't apply. There's a shuttle that will take you to school! :)
I was looking for a more authentic Philly experience outside of the heavily commercialized Rittenhouse Square area. Fitler Square is one of the most charming and beautiful neighborhoods in Philly. Amazing location next to a Starbucks, grocery store, bars, and many other amenities. So happy to be here. Love this neighborhood
Our neighbors have been quiet, lots of people with pets and young families. The neighborhood is pretty calm, cars are fairly rare and it’s very walkable. There’s a grocery store about 3 blocks away, which is great, and there are a lot of trees, which is always nice.
Equidistant from huntsman hall and from rittenhouse square bars and restaurants. You won’t be late for anything. Literally 3 minutes walk from 2401 Walnut and 5 minutes walk from Philadelphia 30th street station. Close to bus stops as well.
Love this location. Everything we want is close by - a quick 25 min walk to campus, 2401 is literally minutes away, Rittenhouse Square is very easy to get to, right on the river, plus Trader Joe's.
