Philadelphia for Thanksgiving.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wedding the weekend before Thanksgiving in Philadelphia and decided to stay for the holiday and have our daughter join us from DC on the train. We stayed for 8 nights and could not have been happier. The location was perfect- walking to Independence Hall, Liberty bell, Constitution Center and a plethora of shops and restaurants. (Plus the Thanksgiving PARADE and Christmas Village) The condo was so well appointed, down to the French press coffee maker and on an unexpected rainy day there was even an umbrella! The beds were comfortable, the maintenance wonderful, the check in with the keys and the wifi login information were simple and seamless. Josh and Miranda could not have been more helpful before we arrived emailing all our questions promptly and after we left,my husband left his kindle there they even mailed it to us the following Monday! We had a car and parked it around the corner for $19 a day. My only mistake was climbing the 5 flights of stairs with a suitcase before I realized that there was an elevator. Its a great week to spend in the city. Highly recommend.

Beautiful Condo in an amazing location of Philly!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the condo for a total of 3 nights. Getting the keys and getting in to the condo were a breeze. The place is very clean and has an open, airy feel.

Bathroom is well stocked with towels, a hair dryer, and small toiletries.
Kitchen is stocked with dishes / utensils and everything needed to make meals.
Beds were comfortable.

The property is walking distance to the Convention Center, Reading Terminal Market, Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and many more. So many restaurants within walking distance, too. Try out the Gaslight right around the corner on Market for an incredible brunch. There is also an old fashioned ice cream parlor called the Franklin Fountain on Market around the corner as well.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Perfect location, clean and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5
We really loved being in the heart of everything. We got to bring our kid, and our friend got to bring his dog which made it super easy and fun to take a quick weekend get away from Brooklyn. The owners were really nice and helpful (when we locked ourselves out with our son's coat still inside!), and we definitely plan on coming back. The only thing I would note is that this really is A LOFT. In the description they mention a wall being put up to make a separate room but we were surprised to find that the room with the privacy, IS NOT THE MASTER. It is a small second room for a kid or close friend. It was a little startling at first but I must say, it all turned out fine (more than fine! lovely). Just be sure you aren't that concerned about two separate private rooms. Oh and there is laundry , coffee machine, snacks, and pretty much everything you need to be comfortable.

A Great Condo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week in early October, 2013 and were totally happy with the condo. It is exactly as described and the pictures are accurate. Chestnut street is a busy narrow street but this condo is in the back of the condo building and is very quiet. We were never bothered with traffic noise (the windows face a parking garage and a bit of a view beyoind...we liked the privacy). The kitchen and bath had everything you would need...the master bed was very comfy...and the living area was very spacious and comfortable. We liked the second bedroom with a table/desk facing the windows..it provided the perfect spot to set up our tablet and use the internet. The building felt secure to us and we really enjoyed the neighborhood, with lots of nearby restaurants. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone wanting to stay in Philadelphia in the historic neighborhood. We walked to the historic sites on 6th (liberty bell, Independence Hall), and we also walked to the Capitol Building but it was a long walk and you can easily avoid it by catching the Phlash bus just a block or so away from the condo. We highly recommend doing the Big Bus hop on/hop off tour of Philly your first full day to get the lay of the land. Go to the Plough, just around the corner on 2nd for Haddock fish and chips..yum! P.S. we did not have a car for this week and did not feel we needed one EVER.

Location, location, location!

Excellent location! We parked our vehicle across the street in a lot and were able to walk, cab or catch a bus everywhere we wanted to go. Appreciated the ample supply of toiletries and cleaning supplies. Condo was well maintained and upscale furnishing. We would definitely rent again for a true downtown vacation experience. Note, when we stayed the second bedroom/loft was not 100% private. It only had a half-wall. It worked out ok but we had to alter our planned sleeping arrangements.

Perfect Philly Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Philadelphia for 4 days on a recent vacation. This apartment is beautiful and the location is fantastic. There were 4 of us; 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We were very comfortable in the loft-the kitchen is stocked with very nice appliances and staple items if you decide to do meal preparation in the loft. The bathroom is also nicely stocked with some toiletries as well. It is located in a historical neighborhood that is within walking distance to many city attractions including Independence Hall, Home of Betsy Ross and Ben Franklin's grave. It is also very close to public transportation to get to places that are a little further away. One thing that I wish I would have known ahead of time: Pennsylvania does not sell liquor or wine on Sundays. You can still buy beer from a beer distributor on Sunday, but you can't buy anything less than a case. (No 6-packs) We didn't know this and ended up buying a case of beer on a Sunday afternoon and leaving most of it when we left Monday morning. We didn't find a big grocery store close by, so all the groceries were bought at a convenience store around the corner that was a little more expensive than we had planned. We did not do a lot of food preparation in the apartment-there are a lot of little restaurants all around the apartment with lots of variety. There is a good deli around the corner where we got some good sandwich stuff. All in all-it was a fantastic trip with delightful amenities-we will definitely book this property again! Thank you Josh-it was perfect!
