All staff has been extremely friendly and very helpful. Everyone always opens doors for me, and it feels like a very safe environment. The residents themselves are nice people too!

It’s been great! Staff has been helpful and the amenities are an A+ in my book. Everything is well kept and I love it. I would say the only con is not having the availability of having maintenance process work orders on weekends.

The Rice is an amazing place to live. You’ve got to experience it to understand the feeling you get when you walk into that majestic lobby & realize, “I live here!”

Move in day was awful. After being told several different stories about reserving the freight elevator (you have to, you don't have to, you can't because we only have one, you don't need to reserve it because it's always available), I finally got confirmation I was required to reserve it for move day. When I got there with my movers, the elevator was broken (not the first or last time). When it finally got fixed, everyone (including building staff) used it. After hours of extra time (and expense) I asked the Leasing office staff if it was actually reserved for me. "I don't know why they tell people it's reserved, it's not like we actually can do that (hahaha)." Wow. Not only an unprofessional response, but absolutely ridiculous. I've been harassed by a homeless woman and her dog tried to attack me and my dog when I was taking him for a walk. I have to walk my dog before 6am and I'm terrified to go outside. It's pitch black in front of the building at that hour, there are now homeless men sleeping in the doorways, and there is no staff to assist. I have no idea how to get back into the front door of the building because no one has provided that information. So I have to run around the block and come in through the side doors. My HVAC broke the day after we moved in and the hallways on the 14th floor are stifling. The temperature is no where near as cool as the other floors, especially in the morning when I go to the parking deck. My sink disposal makes a horrible noise. I pulled cigarette butts out of it (!!!) and it's still making a racket. I'm afraid to put in a maintenance request for fear of being blamed for it because I didn't turn it on until after I turned in my move checklist. BTW - no one has even responded or confirmed that the checklist was submitted. All in all, not a great experience so far

Still in leasing process, but good experience with the leasing staff. The location is perfect...short walk to the office, and great restaurants nearby

The historical appeal of the Rice is nice. And the downtown location is very good. But management needs to address 2 big issues: 1. elevator functionality - too many times it doesn't work and I have to walk up 14 flights of stairs. This is a health risk for someone who may have heart issues. 2. Pet maintenance/cleanliness - I don't have a pet and don't mind others having pets. But the smell and filth from pets on the carpets and in the elevators is overwhelming at times. You need full time maintenance to address this issue or stronger policy management and consequences for pet owners.

We've just moved in but I feel so at home already. The staff in the leasing office are beyond friendly and helpful it affirms me that I made the best choice with making The Rice my home. The location is perfect, amenities are amazing and all of my friends are definitely jealous!

I love the people and location. 1 big thing I feel like I'm missing to make my experience perfect: Better recycling system (the recycling area is confusing)....Several small improvements: Powerwashing the parking garage. Reorganizing the gym (a multihip extender would be a great machine to add). Redecorate the basement pool. A more minimalistic design but with a nice air purifier in the room would be ideal.
