Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location within walking distance of all attractions. Plenty of space in the condo along with elevator access directly to the condo, really helpful with baggage.

Perfect Location, Plenty of Space

  • 4 of 5

It's the rare unit that's actually BIGGER than it looks in the pictures, but this is it! It's quiet in the bedrooms at night, and there's plenty of space to spread out. The elevator opening directly into the unit makes it very easy to get in and out. The location is unbelievably convenient -- easily walkable to tons of restaurants, bars, and stores, as well as a lot of Philly's historic attractions -- and it's close enough to Market Street (Philly's east-west main drag) that it's fast and easy to get to public transit or to get rideshares anywhere you want to go.

Note: The front room has a wall of uncovered windows facing the street. Anyone sleeping in this room should probably bring earplugs and an eye mask. The second bedroom has transom windows that face the same direction and also gets a little noise and light from the street, so anyone who needs total silence/darkness should be aware of that too.

Only real "bad" thing about the unit, which is not in the owner's control really: The upstairs neighbors have a treadmill and the entire unit shakes when they're using it. They seem to only use it once a day for about 30-40 minutes though.

Amazing location clean and nice

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our annual trip to Philly to visit the city and catch an Eagles game. Over the last 5 years we have stayed at a few hotels and a few houses THIS WAS BY FAR OUR FAVORITE!! The location could not have been better, nearly everything is within walking distance yet it didn't feel like we were in the middle of craziness. The apartment is spacious, very clean and well kept. Anything you could need is provided. The only negative I can say is it is difficult to sleep on the sleeper sofa because of the light! We will definitely be back!
