About the property

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.

PLEASE DO NOT USE THE BOOK IT NOW BUTTON FOR STAYS LESS THEN 4 NIGHTS BEFORE CONTACTING US

Our 900 square foot condo has granite counter tops, brand new stainless steal appliances, exposed brick walls and beautiful exposed wood beams. This condo also has WiFi. 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.

***There are pluses and minuses to each of our properties and we want to make sure you select the one that you and your group will enjoy the most. Please see short summaries below with the pros and cons of each of our properties below.

The Chestnut Lofts ...HomeAway # 179041 (faces rear of building)

The Chestnut Lofts is located is located in Old City which although is steps away from the liberty bell and independence hall also has a very lively night time scene with cafes and restaurants and bars. The pros of this unit is that it is located on the top floor of a 5 story building and oriented facing south toward a parking garage not facing chestnut street so it's much much quieter. Drawbacks being there isn't a waterfront view as you have in the front unit, it doesn't have those huge 20 foot ceilings and the main bedroom is a platform style (the second bedroom is fully enclosed). Please see link here for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/141917

The Chestnut Lofts ...VRBO # 477685 (faces front of building)

This unit does have a water view, has soaring 20 foot ceilings and gets great sunlight. The drawbacks being it's located on Chestnut St so noise can be an issue especially on a weekend night. Please see link for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/477685

(Panama St )Cozy Home in Historic Washington Square ...HomeAway # 3165419

This home is located directly next to our other home listing #583380 (Townhouse in Washington Sq) on a quiet cobblestone walking street. Both homes are nearly identical although "Townhouse in Washington Sq" was recently remodeled with a new kitchen and new bathroom. On the upside it has a washer and dryer where the other does not. You can not be more centrally located than this, very easy walk to Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square, 13th and Sansom as well as Old City. The location is hard to beat. Drawback wise these places are small and they have very challenging stairs.

(Panama St) Townhouse in Washington Square ...VRBO # 583380

Please see above summary

Charming on Historic Street ... VRBO # 619713

My personal favorite of all our properties. This home is located 258 S. Quince street, if you google images of "Quince street Philadelphia" you will see it has been the subject of many a painting and photograph. The street with all it's cute little walking streets and off shoots is very European/ Old World. It's very tough to drive a car down, more of a cobblestone walking street, making it very quiet, almost an oasis in the middle of the busy city. It's still not too far from the historic sites but certainly not as close as The Chestnut Lofts are. It also has a private back patio with table and 4 chairs. Although it is a trinity, its much larger than the ones we have on Panama st. Drawback wise, Id say it has a lot of stairs and could be an issue for a toddler or someone that has any sort of mobility issue. Please see link for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/619713

Wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our nephew in for his 24th birthday. The loft was wonderful and the location couldn't be better. It worked for a 24 year old as well as a couple in their early 60's. Josh was great to deal with. His response time was exceptional and he was extremely accommodating. We thought we might have the opportunity to arrive early and Josh allowed us to check in as early as we wanted to. You couldn't ask for more. Next time we are doing an overnight in Philadelphia, this is where we will stay.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Location is close to all historical sites/attractions and close to tons of great restaurants and bars.

The place itself has a lot of great historical features inside, with enough modern amenities to make the stay great!

Clean and well located.

  • 5 of 5

We could walk to everything in the historic district. That will keep you busy for awhile. Convenient to the airport. Good restaurants nearby. The condo was clean and well stocked with essentials. I would stay again.

Great trip to Philadelphia

  • 5 of 5

Philadelphia is a great place to visit and a lot of History.

We were pleased with our Condo as it was very beautiful, clean and in a great location.

It is located in the Historic District so we did not need to rent a car everything was in walking distance.

The condo was equipped with everything we needed.

Wish we could have stayed longer.

Perfect for the Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I decided to road trip to Philly for a long weekend and chose this apartment as our resting place. The apartment was fantastic and the neighborhood is conveniently located to many Philly attractions. Late night, the neighborhood is hopping with numerous local bars and eateries and the cobblestone street is an added touch to Philly's rich heritage. The owner is easy to deal with and quick to respond to any inquiries. Wonderful stay!
