Rittenhouse Claridge Student Resident

Overall I've liked my experience. Maintenance is very quick to respond, the amenities are well-kept, and the units are up-to-date. Rent is lower than most of the comparable apartment buildings, though it increases quite a bit each time I renew. My only complaints are that the walls are very thin (my friends thought I had a landline when they heard the neighbor's ringing) and that sometimes I've received charges for things that never happened (such as lockouts); however, when I dispute the charges, they've always been dropped without issue.

All your basic needs

The best thing about the Claridge is its central location. You live right on the park in the middle of Rittenhouse Square, close to all the bars, shopping, and dining. It's a short walk to the trolley, and the bus stop is right on the corner. Some of the units aren't updated, but you can get decent value for your money, especially for living in a high-rise apartment. Unfortunately, the management company can be a pain to deal with (sometimes rude and slow to respond), so if you have any issues it might a challenge to get them fixed.

Rittenhouse Claridge

It is a great apartment and fantastic location. It's basically as central to everything as you can get. If you don't want to live in 2116, which feels like a Wharton dorm, this is a great alternative.

Overall, very satisfied

overall, great - I love the friendly building and the included utilities. However, I find that the hot water and temperature regulation is limited.

Love pretty much everything about the Claridge

My roommate and I love this building. The rent is awesome for everything we get. We have an amazing view of Rittenhouse Square, love the location, management/maintenance is responsive and nice, and the 2nd floor amenities are great. We signed a 1 year lease but are sure that we will be extending!

Park view is the best

I have a great view facing the Rittenhouse Square. Management and the staffs are very responsible and friendly. It's an old apartment and perhaps not as fancy as some of the new high rises, but the friendly atmosphere of the building and the location is incomparable.

Good Location and Management Company

Great location directly on the park. The building has good amenities and the management company is very responsive. Tenants are a diverse mix of students and older professionals. The rent is pricy, but utilities are included.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

I love everything about living at 2116 chestnut, except for the rent. My apartment is new, updated, clean, floor to ceiling windows, large closets, has a doorman, and includes a great gym and amenity floor. It is a quick walk to work (~20 min from CHOP/Penn). The management is excellent, and fixes anything that breaks within a day. It is very quiet, I have never heard a peep from my neighbors or upstairs. My only gripe is the rent. My unit is a corner unit on a high floor with a balcony, so you could find a 1BR on a lower floor for a little bit cheaper.
Rittenhouse Sq is the hub of Wharton social activity, but consider where in the neighborhood you are - east side has more shops/restaurants but is farther from campus, grocery stores seem to be mostly NW of the square, SW is probably the quietest. South side (and anywhere away from the square) tends to be cheaper, quieter, more residential.
Safety: With the exception of Wendy's on Chestnut Street, Rittenhouse Sq (near City Hall) feels pretty safe (I used to live near Oakland, CA so gauge your level). In other words, I never feel unsafe walking back home at 2-3AM as there is always considerable foot traffic on Chestnut St.
Really lovely neighborhood. Everything you could want is a short walk away. The dog park by the river is great.

You can save money and have a similar experience by moving towards Spruce and Pine St.
Living in Rittenhouse Square you are right in the middle of everything. It's a 20-30 minute walk to Penn but also an easy bus ride on the 21/42 (two of the more reliable SEPTA lines). It can be a little noisy and crowded but it is also incredibly safe and one of the only parts of the city where I feel totally comfortable at any time of night. Likewise it is more commercial and just less "charming" than living in a neighborhood like Fitler Square.
We are a few blocks away from Rittenhouse Square itself, right across the street from City Hall. The only complaint is that the street noise can be very noisy even on the 15th floor. Otherwise it has been great to be so central in the city to everything and for my student, so close to the trolley station at City Hall that runs him right to campus in 10-15mins.
Rittenhouse is the premier location in the city of Philadelphia. Great restaurants, bars, shopping, and a beautiful park in the center of Philadelphia. It is an easy walk to the law school, and there are buses, taxis, and uber if you don't want to walk. It's nice to get away from campus at the end of the day to an exciting but not terribly noisy environment. Also a ton of law school students live in the area, and many of the bar review bars are around here.
Pros: There are many great places to eat / drink in Rittenhouse. I think the area is overall pretty safe.

Cons: 1) there are a lot of homeless people around the area. You can't leave your apartment without being asked for money several times. 2) there is no grocery store very close. Best options are Trader Joes and Whole Foods, but both are a decent walk.
