Affordable & Convenient

Pros: affordable, management is super responsive, able to access the gym at 1700 Walnut
Cons: there is a ton of street noise but that's to be expected given the location.

Just OK

- Very nice staff at the front desk, for the most part
- Laundry on every floor, not kept the cleanest
- Lots of WiFi issues, never received a rent credit, even though it's included
- ALWAYS finding excuses to enter your apartment in the middle of the day (ex: "checking for clogged drains"), found this very intrusive
- Drafty, terrible AC during the summer (loud and old, didn't run well)
- Loud, can hear the girl next to me singing at the top of her lungs almost every night, and the guy on the opposite side clear his throat / hack up a lung every morning.
- Cheap materials but newly renovated, doesn't feel like a million people lived in your unit beforehand
- Lots of different layouts for studios

Cute and affordable studio in a nice renovated space

Pros:
- One of the most affordable studios that I've found. If you sign a 2-year lease, they'll lock in the price
- Includes WiFi, access to amenities (one less bill to worry about)
- Quiet (not a party building which is good for me since I like having my space to myself after hours)
- Newly renovated (building is old but each suite has been upgraded)
- 24/7 concierge with package lockers for deliveries

Cons:
- VERY tiny floorplans (mine is ~300 sqft); definitely only livable for one individual (can't host at all)
- Shared amenities space with a different building so you still have to put on a jacket in the winter to go to the gym, etc.
- Minimal storage (I have a tiny closet and if you have a lot of stuff, this layout likely won't work for you)

Good value in Center City

Latham is a good choice if you do not require big space to host friends.
Good:
Value of money
New renovations
Safe

Bad:
Have to share gyms and common spaces with another building across the street
Internet is slow after midnight
Temperature of shower water fluctuates in winter

Great place for the price

The space is perfectly sized for me with no frills, which is accounted for in the price. Street noise can be a pain but otherwise the location is great. Overall great place to live for a single Wharton student.

Wharton Student

Like: location is good, utilities (expect for electricity) are included.
Dislike: HAVC is loud. Some windows are thin and not doing in well in noise-cancelling, so many of the units are noisy. It takes quite long for the management to fix issues. Internet is slow.
Overall, I do not recommend this building.

Great building

Clean building. Respectful and nice security staff. Luxer in the building so very convenient for receiving packages. My studio was small but functional.

Lovely property, excellent location and responsive management

I live in a lovely modern studio that is well laid out. The building was recently renovated, so it is in great condition. Building shares amenities (except laundry) with 1700 Chestnut so social activity is minimal, which works out great for me as I prefer a quiet building :) The management is very responsive and I have not had any unresolved issues till date. The units run small though, so be mindful of that as you might need creative storage solutions. Location is great, in the shopping zone and in the center of the bar/restaurant scene.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

332 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.
