We enjoyed an excellent Summer weekend at the Cornerstone. It was spotless and comfortable. Although located in a Victorian vintage home, the rooms are air conditioned and everything is carefully maintained. The hosts are lovely and helpful. They offer a nice breakfast on weekends and the rates are quite reasonable. The location is ideal for access to the U Penn... More

The hotel resides in a great location. Convenient parking close to the hotel. The family who own the hotel are very nice and willing to help with everything.... More

This is a beautiful property in a great neighborhood; close proximity to the Drexel and Penn campuses plus a short walk to the Septa system and scrumptious restaurants, Having stayed in over 50 B&B's this one is high on the list. Although parking is a small issue; a lot of B&B's do not have on site parking. Does you home... More

The overall property was gorgeous! The room was very comfortable and classy. The owners were welcoming. The breakfast was delicious. Our daughter will be living in Philly for the next 2 years so we hope to spend many more weekends there!

The building was beautiful and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere conveyed a very welcoming and homey type feeling. Due to a late flight I was only able to meet with the owners the next morning but my wife did have the pleasure before picking me up at the Airport, hearing nothing but great things. When I... More

Cornerstone BnB was a good find. Our first impression was that the immediate neighborhood was a little sketchy. We were initially approached by a guy asking for money and we felt a bit uneasy. Innkeeper Dennis met us - his demeanor was not rude but not warm either- kind of Philly-style. Our room was nice and comfy and the dinner... More

My husband and I stayed in the Philadelphia room and had a very nice, spacious room on the ground level that overlooked the garden. The bathroom was a nice size, too. The room was decorated very nicely and was very clean. Breakfast was a continental bread with some fresh baked breads and cakes. It was more than ample as a... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights here and found it to be a good place. The location is close to the Metro which will take you straight downtown. We walked to the downtown and it took about 45 minutes. Our room was the Furness room and it was clean and the quiet for sleeping. The owners were very friendly... More
