Two Bedroom Luxury Penthouse, Close To Convention Center & Historic Old City

Welcome to the Chestnut Lofts, A boutique condominium building centrally located 3 blocks from the Liberty Bell, Independence hall and 1 block from Penns Landing and the waterfront. Step out your door to dine at cafes and restaurants or explore Old City in a horse drawn carriage. If visiting for a trade show, we are just a short walk to the convention center as well.

The building is a certified historic landmark and is a unique blend of both new and old. If you’re coming to Philadelphia to experience the history or enjoy the fine dining you could not ask for a better location.

*Please make note that the loft bedroom on the second floor has a very low ceiling around 6 feet and possibly even lower in some spots as there are exposed beams.

Très agréable séjour!

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est vraiment bien situé. Plusieurs sites touristiques sont accessibles à pied. Sinon, le bus et le métro sont à moins de 5 minutes. Si on laisse sa voiture dans un stationnement privé, il y en a deux juste de l'autre côté de la rue, mais ils sont un peu étranges...les prix et règles semblent changer selon le type qui est dans la guérite...

Même si le propriétaire n'était pas présent à notre arrivée, il nous avait laissé des indications très claires pour accéder à l'appartement. Pour les francophones, il faut savoir qu'un "fob" est une petite clé magnétique...nous avons mis un peu de temps à saisir de quoi il s'agissait. L'appartement était très propre, et les lits très confortables, avec plusieurs oreillers. Le plafond de la chambre situé sur la mezzanine est bas, ce qui est un peu incommodant pour une personne de plus de 5'3" mais bon, on s'habitue rapidement. Pour deux couples d'adultes, la cuisine est un peu exiguë, par contre elle est très bien équipée. Les serviettes de bains étaient épaisses et douces, ce qui est rare dans les appartements de location. Le remboursement de la caution s'est effectué rapidement et facilement. Les propriétaires nous ont toujours répondu rapidement, avec courtoisie et précision. Merci beaucoup à Josh et Miranda!

Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Before we even arrived, Josh and Miranda saved our day by alerting us to a problem in our previously rented property, and giving us the option of switching over to this clean, well-appointed, cozy home with easy access to everything from fireworks at Penn's Landing to local coffee shops, bars, museums and more. A bottle of wine was even waiting for us to kick off the beginning of a trip we won't soon forget.

Thanksgiving in Old City

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! The beds were so comfortable I had to ask for the brand. The kitchen was perfectly cozy and so well appointed. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. We will be returning next time we are in Philly.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We were three woman of a certain age who wanted to experience Philadelphia and the Philly scene. This was the perfect location. The condo was fantastic; clean, comfortable, had an elevator, and within walking distance of everything. Josh and Miranda could not have been more welcoming. I will stay there again, next time I have and excuse to visit Philadelphia.
