Experience Life at The Commonwealth.

With two spacious bedrooms and a pull-out sofa, this condo accommodates up to 5 people. The master bedroom features a plush king bed, large closet, and adjoining bathroom. In this private oasis you'll probably forget you aren't at home. The second bedroom, on the opposite side of the apartment, has a heavenly queen bed and spacious closet. Privacy is never an issue in this condo.

Hardwood floors throughout are just the tip of the iceberg as far as upscale elements. Both bathrooms have been outfitted with premium Grohe fixtures. The kitchen boasts custom-crafted European cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel GE appliances. And let's not forget the in-home Bosch washer and dryer.

Located in the "Midtown Village" section of Philadelphia's City Center, the trendiest restaurants, shops, and attractions are at your doorstep. The famous Reading Terminal Market is blocks away, offering the finest locally grown produce and fresh meats, seafood and poultry; if you don't have time to cook, grab a sandwich from DiNic's or Salumeria.

Less than a mile away from The Commonwealth are a plethora of historical sites such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Betsy Ross House. But history isn't the only thing this location has to offer. Philadelphia's art and cultural epicenter—the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Philadelphia Museum of Art—is within two miles of your home base. Don't forget to pose for a picture on the museum's famous Rocky Steps. To really treat yourself after a long day of sight-seeing, head down the block to try one of Capital Grille's famous dry-aged steaks. Then stop for a nightcap of house-aged spirits at Bank & Bourbon on your way home.

Great place, responsive property manager.

  • 4 of 5

This place was clean and they even tried to accommodate our early check in. The staff I spoke to was very helpful and pleasant. It was only 45 min earlier than normal check in but it was the thought and attention to the request that I found to be so nice. I will agree, it was noisy from the street- the condo faces Chestnut. So we could hear people on the street arguing, but you should expect that from a down town condo. My co-worker and I felt a little unsafe in the area at night, but that has nothing to do with the condo itself. We just took an Uber everywhere we went. Just something you should consider. My only suggestion would be to change the shower curtain situation in the master bath. It's a very low profile tub with a curved curtain bar so the water soaks the bathroom floor. That's an easy fix. Thanks!

Great location and very helpful management staff

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal place to stay while in the city visiting with another couple. Walking distance to Old Town, and lots of great places to eat and have a few drinks. The two bathrooms was ideal while sharing the apartment. The Stay Alfred Staff was extremely helpful and easy to get in touch with.
