Recent Allan Domb reviews
Great view, lots of sunlight
Society Hill Towers consists of three connected buildings. Has an underground garage. The property is well managed. The location feels really safe. It's located within walking distance of a lot of good restaurants and each unit has a beautiful view. Utilities are also included.
Overall good stay
The pros are the lobby, gym, and overall look of the condos with hardwood floors, marble tiling and granite countertops. There were a lot of fire alarms that went off at random days/times especially since half of the building is a hotel and found that to be annoying. Residents can't use the official business lounge on the actual hotel floor and there isn't a common area besides the lobby. A little overpriced and you don't get as much bang for your buck as you would closer to Broad St. You pay for living right before Rittenhouse square, and nice furnishings in your condo like mentioned above.
Parc is the best
I love living in this building - I feel safe and secure, and the location and amenities are the best. I enjoy the restaurants nearby, plus the gym and pool I only wish that the hot tub was open longer into the fall season! Also, the door-people/staff are incredibly helpful.
Perfect location, well kept building
It's hard to find a better location (unless you prefer the other side of the square, I suppose). Everyone who works in the building is extremely nice and helpful. Even though the units are condos, building maintenance has quickly taken care of everything I've needed since I've been here (basic plumbing etc). The units are hit or miss in terms of finishes since they are renovated by owner, but the common spaces are well maintained and clean. The building seems to be a mix of students, young professionals, and older people; I've never had a problem with noise or otherwise.
Rooftop pool and great location
After a long day working in center city, there is nothing I love more than coming home to a rooftop pool in the heart of Rittenhouse square. From the moment you walk in, you feel like you are in a luxury hotel. A bit pricey, but worth it for the luxury accommodations and relaxing environment. Always feel safe and welcome in the community. Lots of great amenities and perfect location in Philly near shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Love living here!
As I write this review, I sit in my Parc Rittenhouse studio wrapped in my pink polka dot robe like a human burrito because management insists its appropriate to blast the AC on a cold April day. For the record, the burrito life ain't a bad life. Although, the inability to control the AC and heat system in my unit is truly my only complaint.
Management has been great, any issue that arises is handled immediately. The door men do a great job at keeping the building secure and don't let anyone in that doesn't live in the building. The pool is beautiful during the summer months. The gym is pumpkin spice latte basic. The other tenants are great, especially the four legged ones. Lastly, the building is perfectly located right on the square and surrounded by great restaurants/bars. Overall, my experience has been great!
Good bang for your buck!
Great location! Not the most social building in comparison to the other big Wharton buildings but enough students to share a daily UBER bus with to class. Great bang for your buck apartment, old but refurbished. Building is super responsive to any fix it requests. Small gym and rooftop included.
Great location. Not very social. Super safe but also hard to have people over because doorman will call for every single visitor. The gym is in the basement so no sunlight but never crowded. My apartment has 2 closets and plenty of space in the main room.
Overall The Rittenhouse Savoy is great. The building is very clean and I have never seen any kind of pests. Maintenance has been prompt for the few issues I've had. The neighborhood is super safe and obviously close to lots of restaurants and shops. It's not as close to Penn as other options but the 21/42 are totally adequate for getting to school.
Enjoyed living here
Student atmosphere can affect noise levels in the building at times, as there are many students from UPenn here. Amenities are solid, management varies if you have a private owner versus Allan Domb etc, no complaints about my landlord (private), location cannot be beat, gym is okay but adequate for basic workouts.
Very Happy, Lived here All 3 Years of Law School
The Wellington is an EXCELLENT apartment building. The location is prime real estate--right off of Rittenhouse Square, with friendly doormen and staff. The area is fun and bustling, and I can walk anywhere I need to go (socializing in Center City and 25 min walk to school in U City). The ONLY drawback is that it is a pricier building, but I thought it was worth it. Highly, highly recommend.
Best Apartment building ever
I absolutely love my apartment. The staff and management are so nice. I recommend living here to everyone I speak with. There is a gym, a pool and covered parking garage. The 1 bedroom apartment offers beautiful views of the city and tons of closet/storage space. I never want to move out. I love it here.
Great location right off Rittenhouse Square. Best value in that area.
Wannamaker has a great management team that takes care of your needs and address all issues within 24-48 hours. Although the place is pricey, it is good for young professionals like myself if one can afford it. There are amazing restaurants in the neighborhood which makes living here even more fun!
