“Satisfactory with several reservations”
Reviewed 22 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

UrHome location reviewed: 1955 Locust St @ Rittenhouse Sq.
1st Floor Home (Apt. 1F)

This location was chosen due to it being adjacent to Rittenhouse Sq. Park and surrounded by many restaurants. Another criteria was the fact that this apartment is on the first floor; one step up to the front door, then another three steps up to the entry foyer. We arrived on a Friday evening for a weekend stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Upon entering, we were surprised and pleased to find a beautiful bouquet of flowers as well as an arrangement of impressive white roses along with a card, all arranged by Steve. Breakfast fixings were found in the kitchen which we enjoyed both Sat and Sun mornings, again, thanks to Steve.

Overall, the dimensions of the rooms were found to be satisfactory for two people other than the BR. The LR area is somewhat combined with the KIT with two windows overlooking Locust St. An extremely small table with bar type stools suggests they be used for eating. However, they appear to be more for decoration other than for actual dining.

We used the one sofa and coffee table to relax, have breakfast, and view some TV. A chandelier provides bright light over the LR. A small lamp sits to the side of the sofa and was not of much use. Ceiling mounted spots are located over the fridge to illuminate the KIT area. We would have liked to have seen dimmers on these light fixtures.

We found the Queen-sized (very downy) bed to be very comfortable. Two types of pillows were found to choose from; both were very acceptable. The AC worked well yet we could have used another blanket to place over the bed spread quilt; none was found.

It should be noted that one side of the bed was positioned against the wall in order to fit it into the space. This caused us to crawl over one another, somewhat awkward. Bedroom lighting consisted of a (very) large curved-arm lighting fixture, floor mounted, that extended up and over the center of the bed. The ON/OFF switch consisted of a foot-operated button near the foot of the bed which was inconvenient at best.

When ON, and laying in bed, we felt like we were in an operating room. Reading lamp sconces could have been provided at the ends of the headboard. (There are small shelves built into the headboard which are illuminated with low voltage lamps and clearly not intended for reading nor romance.) One window is located in the BR yet overlooks a blind courtyard behind the building; ditto for the bathroom.

Damaged hardware was found in the closet and BR door with both reported to Ownership. Homes (Apts) offering more sq footage with nicer layouts were found for lesser costs. This Home would not be my first choice should we use urHome again.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 3 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

About the same price as a luxury hotel but so much more! Room to spread out and relax, a kitchen for cooking or snacks and even clothes washing facilities. A real find!
