Loved my time at the claridge

Definitely recommend this building - right on Rittenhouse Square, spacious (we had a 2br), and good price. We had an unrenovated room which kept our cost down, having a rug wasn't ideal but it also never really bothered us. Maintenance team is so fast and responsive. I'll be sad to leave this building!

Highly recommend

I love the common areas in the Claridge – the gym is spacious and clean, the sauna is great, the conference area and lounge are well-furnished and perfect for meetings. Can't beat the location or the rent!

Great value and location, gym, tons of Wharton students

Great Wharton community to be a part of. Apartments are larger than what peers are paying for smaller spaces in other buildings. Location right on Rittenhouse Square is wonderful (especially with the 2x a week farmers markets right on our doorstep). Only issue is the package system- can get overloaded at times.

Claridge review

Great building with really awesome staff (front desk, door staff, maintenance). The unit is nice, though slightly dated. The only real challenge is the building is right on Walnut street, which is quite loud with significant ongoing construction.

The Good, the Bad, & the Neutral

The Rittenhouse Claridge is a good community but lacking.

The Good:
- Maintenance is quick to respond to issues, can either call the front desk or submit online
- Spacious living room
- Great views over the park and roof deck (but this doesn't compare to many other high rises decks)

The Bad:
- Elevators are currently being worked on so wait times can be long and are exaggerated by the 2 person rule (which some residents are VERY serious about)
- Kitchen is TINY
- Some rooms on the smaller side

Neutral:
- Gym - has a yoga room (that doesn't seem to be mopped enough) and has some of the basics (treadmill, free weights, a few machines), but definitely smaller
- Package system - secure room, but often issues with something being delivered but not showing up (it normally does a day or two later) and can be very messy
- Lounge - nice lounge but I personally hardly use it

Great value for money

We have a renovated unit on the 17th floor with West facing windows overlooking Rittenhouse Park. There were leakage issues when we moved in but those have now been fixed. Tons of space for a 2BD if you are willing to share a bathroom.

Great value apartment for MBAs

My roommate and I have really enjoyed our experience. Coming from apartments in NYC where we paid much more for much less, we've been really happy with the amount of space we have and the amenities we have access to for the rent we're paying. The location also can't be beat - we've loved living on the park (and getting park views in our apartment) and we're really in the center of all Wharton social activities, and the walk across Walnut to campus is super convenient.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

547 reviews
The neighborhood is both quiet and lively. There is so much around, but I have never had an issue sleeping or studying because there is too much noise. The broad street line is a 10-15 minute walk away and we are close to shopping, food, the park, and the river trail. Has everything within a 10-15 walk.
This neighborhood has everything I need within walking distance. Shops, grocery stores, parks, the subway and trolley, post office. You name it. It's very safe and extremely quiet, which helps when I'm trying to study. The Rittenhouse Square area is really the best place to live in Philly if you don't mind paying a little more.
I love this neighborhood and knew I wanted to live here when beginning my apartment search. The park is one of my favorite places in the city, and I love being able to easily access all the restaurants and shopping nearby. It's also an easy (~20 minute) walk to Penn Law, and the walking commute has always been a nice and peaceful part of my day.

Spruce Street in particular is great - it's a little south of the square, so is quieter/shielded from a lot of the traffic that the neighborhood gets, but it's not out of the way or far away. There's a Starbucks, a grocery store (Rittenhouse Market), and a few corner stores (Four Seasons and Food & Friends) within a 2-3 minute walk of my apartment.
Rittenhouse is one of my favorite spots in Philadelphia. Great food, lots of bars/public spaces to hang out, very walkable, easy access to the Schuylkill River Trail, and beautiful buildings. The fact that it's located right across the river from UPenn as well makes it very convenient for school.
Right in the thick of Center City/Rittenhouse. Surrounded by commercial businesses and other apartment buildings. Nice and close to the park, restaurants, etc. Not too far of a walk to Trader Joe's. Chestnut Street can sometimes feel unsafe, but building itself feels very safe.
Rittenhouse is extremely lively with a lot of great restaurants and shopping. As a Penn grad student, most students live around the area so it's really convenient. The park is a great meeting point.
Close to all the bars and restaurants in the Gayborhood. 7 minute walk to Rittenhouse Square, so close to lots of Wharton students. A bit farther from campus, but I ride my bike and super easy.
I love Rittenhouse for the shopping/restaurants/parks/convenience, but like many neighborhoods in large cities you should be aware of your surroundings especially if you are a woman.
