Functional

Small rooms due to cheaper rent but the apartment building (and the appliances) is very new.
Ideal for someone looking to have a functional apartment.
It's hard to accomodate more than 10-15 people in the living room

Good value

AQ Rittenhouse has been great for us. They keep things pretty clean and looking nice, cool rooftop, good security. Good value for the price. Building is only ~3 years old.

Uptight building management

Management of the building is pretty uptight. It's expensive to rent the rooftop and they will reprimand you if you try to bring too many people to the rooftop. There are so many lame rules such as if youre check bounces once, then youre no longer able to pay by check and must pay by cashiers check going forward--there is NO leniency on this. The doormen are amazing and super nice but the building management itself is incredibly difficult to work with. I would not not recommend living here.

One of the best values on Chestnut

Great building in prime location for Wharton students. Look for apartments facing Chestnut street for the best views and light. A lot of the units face an internal courtyard so room gets dark and people can see into each other's apartments -- steer clear of those.

Overall good and convenient building for students

Great location. Target, CVS, Trader Joe’s, all within two block radius. There’s also an urgent care clinic right down stairs.

The building is renovated about two years ago, so appliances are new and shiny. But sound proof isn’t good. Could do with thicker walls. Shower head water pressure isn’t great, but that might be just my room. Management is overall responsive, although not always helpful.

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.
