Three Philly apartments under $2,500 a month - with coveted private laundry

The Phoenix at 1600 Arch St. in Philadelphia comes with a full laundry area, as well as direct access to Suburban Station, Starbucks and Tir Na Nog.

An Apartment List study recently named in-unit laundry as the most sought-after amenity for renters in Philadelphia. But less than 20 percent of all rentals include private laundry facilities. These three apartments offer renters the coveted ability to wash their unmentionables without scrounging for quarters or passive-aggressively trading notes about neighbors in a communal laundry room.

Monthly rent: $2,400

Tell me all about it: This two-bedroom unit at the Phoenix comes with all the bells and whistles of a luxury building. They include round-the-clock concierge, fitness center, media room and rooftop terrace. Of course, the apartment also comes with a full laundry area as well as direct access to Suburban Station, Starbucks and Tir Na Nog.
