I've lived at the Metropolitan almost one year and I love it. They rent studios, one and two bedroom apartments. The amenities of the building are excellent. They provide an on-site gym, conference room and rooftop deck with a skyline view that makes you feel like you live in Manhattan. The Metropolitan is a pre-World War I Art Deco building. It has a beautifully decorated lobby and with courteous and professional front desk staff. The apartments have been upgraded with modern appliances and include washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, hardwood floors, granite counter tops and modern light fixtures and bathrooms. The bedrooms are carpeted. The only units that do not have hardwood are the studios, which are carpeted. In addition to newly renovated apartments, the Metropolitan has three amazing assets - the staff, the rooftop, and the fact that they are dog friendly. All the staff are professional, friendly, and willing to assist you in every way. The rooftop deck is absolutely incredible. Open from the Spring through the early Fall, it is a haven filled with patio furniture for dining or lounging and lots of seasonal plants. For safety reasons no alcohol is allowed and it closes at 10:30 PM. Lastly, our dog is treated well by the staff. Being an older building it has problems from time to time, but Fran the maintenance man is always on hand to fix things and keeps the building well maintained. The only issues I have ever encountered involved elevators being down, but those stemmed mostly from maintenance, repairs and inspections, and they were not major. One time the building had to be evacuated because someone burned their hamburgers in their unit. It took some time to reset the elevators. In my experience I would say that the management company, Reinhold Residential, truly pride themselves on their appearance and in running a good operation. As far as amenities in the near vicinity, several parking structures are near, some expensive, No, parking is not included. There is a small market on the same block that could use a face lift but does the job, two other food places on the same block, a decent everyday restaurant around the corner owned by a Honduran, Aldo, who is consistently good for your staple breakfast and lunch, and two 7-Eleven's not far. Groceries can be delivered to your door by Peadpod, which is highly convenient. You are also blocks away from many other nice restaurants, including Chinatown, which is walkable within ten minutes. And when you do return from that trip to the grocery store, Target or elsewhere, there is a loading dock in the back for drop off. An interesting fact about the building is that it used to be a military YMCA. You can see the remnants in the basement of the building where each unit has a storage locker. On the second floor, hidden from view and unused except as a storage facility for now defunct appliances is an old gem of a gymnasium. If the Metropolitan were to empty and refurbish the gymnasium they would have an incredible space, particularly to rent out for events. If you ask Fran nicely he will show you. All in all I love living at the Metropolitan. It has made living in Philadelphia a great experience. I rented from summer 10 through summer 11. ...
