Lovely & Caring Staff
Always love my stay at Roost Rittenhouse. The location & practicality of the rooms are well suited for my frequent trips to Philadelphia. I love seeing the same staff, Chanel & Sean, as they help warm up my trip each time I stay! Thank you for the hospitality

8/10 Very good

Difficult entry steps (not handicapped or suitcase friendly). No on-site parking (nearby garage was $42/day). Friendly desk staff. Noisy A/C. Lots of street noise til 3am through closed windows. Windows were inoperable (painted and blocked in place). Window sills rotted away & some windows had gaps under, letting a few bugs in. Displeasing views. Floors were not level, seemingly sinking in places. Plenty of hot water but took awhile to get hot. Large rainfall shower head provides large coverage area but no spray pressure. Insufficient towels for a week's stay without housekeeping. No laundry detergent provided. Nice gas range. Insufficient dish-ware & cutlery (service for 4). Could have used a microwave-safe coffee mug, an oven mitt, smaller nonstick skillet, a nonstick pot, & some glass canisters for leftovers. Decorated nicely, but getting worn & scuffed up. Cloth sofa (couldn't sanitize). Comfy bed, but no top sheet. Nightstand blocked bedroom door from being opened or closed. Electrical outlets worn out (power adapters fall out). Breaker tripped when running toaster. Unencrypted WiFi; WiFi access code timed out twice prematurely; no hardwired ethernet. Non-smoking facility was great, but smokers on the front steps were not.
