The Chateau Crillon Apartment House, also known as the Cohen Apartment House and the Rittenhouse 222 Apartments, is a historic high-rise building in the fashionable Rittenhouse Square section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States.

The 27-story building was designed by architect Horace Trumbauer in the Lombardic Romanesque style and completed in 1928. The style was perhaps suggested by the newly built Shelton Hotel in New York City, designed by A. L. Harmon.[2] There are setbacks on the 17th and 24th floors.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, and on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places on May 6, 1982 and on February 8, 1995.
