Spacious and great doorman/staff
Very close to campus, no dogs allowed, our view is probably the best in Philadelphia. Our place isn't updated but they're in the process of updating them all
Practical + Functional
If I had to describe 2400 Chestnut in one word, it would be "practical". The building is fairly close to the law school (12-minute walking distance) and for the price, it is a solid option. The apartment staff are always very nice and you won't have to worry about losing your package. The shuttles can be a plus but the times are not consistent. There definitely are downsides: units are quite old and are not modern-looking by any means. The windows are huge so you get a good view of the city but can make your apartment quite cold during the winter.
2400 Chestnut is certainly not a luxury apartment but the perks of living close to school and having a doorman with a moderate rent make the place worthwhile, at least during your first year in Philly.
I have really enjoyed living here. It is the perfect location between Center City and University City. It has great parking rates, which is a large part of why we chose to live here. I have no complaints about the building. It is a great value as well. There are a lot of graduate students and young professionals in the building. I would recommend it!
Gets the job done
2400 is a good apartment at a good cost. The units are a little outdated but clean and functional. You get a lot of space and closet space for how much you pay, and management is very good and attentive. The gym isn't bad (8-9 cardio machines, bench, free weights, and 4-5 weight machines. Free shuttle to campus is great for cold or rainy days, but otherwise the walk isn't bad at all. Close to 30th st station, very close to 2401. Nice views as well.
Fine for the price given the location
Great location, easy to walk to campus. Maintenance is great and fixes most things on the day you request something. Building isn't the nicest or the newest but is appropriately priced. Extremely quiet--really no street noise or noise inside the apartment.
They are redoing the apartments but if you are looking for a cheap comfortable place this is great. There are temperature control issues but the refurnishing is going to fix those problems.
Great until recently
Really liked the apartment the first year. Management is generally responsive and the staff are very nice. The location is good as it's part way between school and Rittenhouse square and very close to the highway. Parking is also relatively cheap at $130 per month. On the down side, there are limited food options close by. Also, this past year, they have been renovating the apartment next door, which means loud drilling sounds on weekday mornings. However, this should hopefully not be an issue in the future.
Value for money
This building offers great value for money.
1. Location - close to 2401, closer to campus, complimentary campus shuttle on weekday mornings
2. Gym in the basement, one "study" room on the first floor
1. Different units are in different stages of renovation - some units have been renovated, others haven't. The ones that haven't been renovated have old, grotty carpets. The bathrooms are tiny.
2. This is generally an older building, with older appliances, and older fittings. The apartments are not as "nice" as the newer buildings in Center City (2116 Chestnut, 1919 Market).
3. The gym is tiny, and only has a few machines.
4. No in-unit laundry (Each floor has a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers). But the laundry machines are free to use, and I have never had to wait to find a free machine.
Great for Penn Grads
Best value in Center City. We get a lot of space for what we pay. While there aren't a ton of amenities that come with it, there is a solid gym and a shuttle to campus, and management is fantastic.
Easy and great for students
Lots of medical students and residents in this building. There is morning shuttle to UPenn's campus that runs every 20 minutes. There's also a 24 hour fitness room, doorman. The windows were renovated a couple years ago and over all in pretty good condition. Great value for this really easy to live in building.
So close to campus! Love the shuttle that takes you to the University of Pennsylvania campus every day. The management is nice and very responsive. I've always felt safe here, and I hope to continue living here for many more years! 2400 Chestnut is great!
Wonderful place to stay
If you do not have a low budget for a place to stay and are looking for a safe apartment, building, great amenities and rental company 2400 Chestnut is for you. It is right in the middle of everything 30th street train station, the highway, 13 minute walk to school and nightlife everywhere. You also get a free gym, cable included and an incredible skyline view of the city or the Schuylkill river walk, which you are right next to with access from the chestnut st bridge.
Pretty Good place
Very convenient for Wharton MBAs and offers good value
Fantastic location: halfway between Penn Med and downtown. Shuttle between the apartment building and the Penn campus is a great amenity. Apartments are solid. Bathroom and Kitchen are fine. Bedrooms are good. Only major complaint is that the rooms do not hold heat well in the winter, leading to higher electric bills and the need for supplemental heating (e.g. space heater).
Value and Convenience
Super convenient location at a reasonable price has led this to become the Penn med "dorm". Nice, clean apartment building although it's a bit old, but renovations are ongoing every year. The morning and evening shuttle is clutch, especially in the winter time. There is an Indigo bike rack next to the building and it's 20 min walk max door to door, so all transportation options are great. Doorman for security and packages is very convenient as well. Definitely would recommend living here, especially if not from Philly area and don't have time to explore the rest of the city for an extended period of time.
