Center City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

****Very Important

Please read our notes about 2 and 3 night stays in the rates section. We take them on a case by case basis and rates can be much higher. Please do not use the book it now button for 2 or 3 night stays before contacting us.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely! We had a wonderful experience at this property. My husband and I traveled with our two young children, ages 8 and 6. The accommodations, location and timing was perfect. I was curious about the noise factor, since that was listed as a "con". However, we were not impacted by any noise. I did turn on the noise maker and although I turned it off, it would have worked well if needed. Josh was responsive and the directions to enter were simple. We had a memorable Thanksgiving and look forward to returning to this property in the future.

Great location, great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here while in town for a wedding. Great location (albeit a bit loud at night - although the sound machines were great!), simple place with everything you'd need. I would stay again if we came back in town. The loft has very low ceilings (as advertised) and the steps are steep, so we ended up putting my 3 year old in the master so he wouldn't have to navigate the stairs to use the bathroom during the night.

Hip loft space in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was in the perfect location! It was big, hip and clean. Comfy bed and sofa a plus :) Great open space with awesome view to the main street that's filled with great restaurants and bars. After a long day of history sight seeing and a hot air balloon ride, it was really nice to just be able to go right across the street for dinner & drinks!

Fabulous: In the heart of the historic district!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the condo very much. We loved the location: we found amazing food within short walking distances every time. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We recommend this condo!
