Very comfortable but some headaches

I've lived in this apartment my whole time in Philly and in general have been really happy with it. The location is hard to beat, it's extremely safe, maintenance is responsive and it's great to have a front desk to securely receive packages and hold a spare key. That said, it's a big building with some of the associated headaches; there are some floors where units aren't kept clean and consequently there are rodent and roach problems (have only seen once or twice in my unit over years). Also, I've had a lot of problems with building maintenance affecting my unit, like leaks coming into my apartment from the unit above -- it gets cleaned up pretty quickly but I still have to deal with the intrusion of repairmen and damage to my belongings.

Studio at the Savoy

This apartment is absolutely perfect for what I was looking for. It's a cozy studio with giant windows that take up the length of the room (facing south so get tons of great light). The kitchen has new appliances, including dishwasher.

Building itself has been great so far. Very nice front desk and maintenance staff. It's a lot of Philadelphia residents versus Wharton students, which I appreciate because it's nice having a space that feels removed from the social scene. Perfect location on Rittenhouse Sq Park. I think I pay $30/month for the gym, which is basic but has everything I need (TVs, good AC, usually empty). Laundry room is also nice and clean and never crowded.

Savoy

Good apt, some old building issues with water and wish the gym membership was included. But can’t beat living right on Rittenhouse Square with relatively cheap rent!

Great management, safe building

Very safe, great location. Other units say they've had bad pest problems (mice and roaches) -- I've only seen a mouse once in several years, roaches very occasionally in warmer weather. Building is very safe with 24/7 front desk, can receive packages, dry cleaning, etc. Units are owned individually so they vary a lot in terms of finishing, renovation, etc. On site gym is nice but costs extra.

Love our apartment but each one is different

Because the Savoy is a condo building, the quality of units you will get is quite variable. Also the amount you can expect to pay will vary based on what the condo owner decides to charge you.

Overall, really positive experience with the building. The front desk is great and management is good at communicating about any maintenance that will be done. The laundry room downstairs is great, as is the gym which is only ~$20 per month or so and is usually empty.

Not many Wharton students live in this building (residents tend to be older) but it's right down the street from the Claridge and has a great location right on Rittenhouse Square.

LOVE THE SAVOY

The Savoy is a phenomenal building. Not a "Wharton" building, which I like. Staff is amazing. Run amazingly well. Maintenance comes within a half day if you need anything. Truly love living here and really feels like home :)

Really happy!

The building is older, with older guests. It's all condos - apartments vary widely in terms of how updated they are. Amazing location right on the square. You can walk anywhere. Gym in building, laundry downstairs that you have to pay for. All in all, really happy!

Decent building with great staff and great location

The building had a doorman and has a full service and responsive staff, so if there is an issue they will pretty much always fix it that day. It is a little older building but it's in a great location.

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.
