Experience Life at The Commonwealth by Stay Alfred

Large windows in every room and sleek European design elements define this home. Bathed in natural light, the open concept living room and kitchen are warm and inviting. There is more than enough room for your entire party to spread out and relax in front of the TV when you need a break from the city. Take advantage of the full kitchen to prepare meals and save money.

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.

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.

Let Stay Alfred host your next trip to Philly. Stay smart. Stay Together. Stay Alfred!

We couldn't ask for a better spot for our trip. The unit was very accommodating, and there was a ton to do in the neighborhood!

Didn't like where the property was located-begging by homeless people

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was not as nice as the price I paid for the week or the pictures I saw led my to believe it would be. Stains on the carpet, a delapidated couch. The thermostat didn't work properly nor did the shower hot water gauge. Had I known that the building was in a very busy area where homeless and addicts hung out to beg from the many people walking by. Also the outside street noise was very loud and made it difficult to sleep at night. Would not go back!!

Great location and set up

  • 4 of 5

This 2-bedroom 2 bath condo is well equipped and really well located. It was very comfortable.

We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. It's close to restaurants, City Hall, Reading Market, the Magic Garden, Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the New Museum of the American Revolution. We also walked about 1.5 miles to the art museums and Eastern Pennsylvania State Prison.

We would definitely stay here again.

Another great stay in Philly!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this unit. With two small children we love the location's walking proximity to everything near Center City and Rittenhouse Square, including the museum district. Just a 5 mile drive or train ride down to the stadiums. And now there is a Target across the street! Great, clean, unit with spectacular views of the city. We'll be back!

Great Property For a Small Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of four. The apartment was very spacious and clean. One bed was king sized and the other was a full, not a queen. Amenities like coffee were a nice touch. A little difficult to find by car but otherwise close to everything. Would recommend.
