This B&B is in the Washington Square South area of Center City. Taxi cabs pass this location every few minutes. The rooms are large and the hostess is very attentive. Restaurants, bars , and bookstores are all within walking distance.

It is hard to find a room with two beds in a bed and breakfast, and I was traveling with my college-age daughter. It turned out to be a wonderful location in my favorite part of Philadelphia, with Whole Foods to buy food a block away. Marjorie got me a street parking pass, which worked beautifully. Be aware that Marjorie... More

During an academic research trip, I stayed here on and off for 3 weeks, and it was perfect. Fridge always stocked, room cleaned everyday, and because it was a longer stay, Marjorie even did my laundry! Excellent price for the room, given the location, which was 5-10 min walk from everything you need in Philadelphia. Will return in future.

I was in Philadelphia for a short evening, with an very early departure. I found this place on AirBnB, and thought that the price and location seemed very reasonable. Marjorie was very helpful with her directions and being available when I got into town. She did not enforce any kind of curfew... which was great as this B&B is located... More

First off, let me say that Marjorie seems like a perfectly wonderful person, and most of the reviews here paint a fairly pretty picture. We like to patronize B&B's and local shops, so we were seeking out a place like we thought this would be. However, there are plenty of reviews across the web on other sites - do yourself... More

I stayed in the room with the mural pictured above which seemed somewhat clean at first sight. The room had an overpowering smell of air fresheners and cleaning supplies. There were also bed bugs! The bed and surrounding area appeared clean but I woke up with four extremely itchy bites on my foot and ankle! The bathroom shower needed cleaning... More

Marjorie Amrom's Trade Winds Bed and Breakfast is a great location close to everything in Philly. 4+ different Cheese Steak Places within 10 minutes including Pat's and Geno's, 10 minutes to the Library/Art Museum, got to run the stairs.... Great Place to stay at a reasonable cost. I'll stay again when in Philly. Room was the one with 2 Twin... More

COMPLETELY IGNORE THE "WORST 30 MINUTES OF OUR LIFE" REVIEW . . . with the exception of the cereal and milk breakfast. We were met at the door by the owner with a city visitor parking pass she purchased and had ready for us upon arrival. Next, she called while we were driving around looking for street parking to tell... More

I stayed in the room with the mural on the top floor on two occasions, both being romantic occasions. The mural and the fancy decor gave the room a sort of cozy elegance. It was also nice to have a TV (with cable) and fridge available; it made our stay more convenient. The place could've used a light dusting, but... More

PROS: Great little neighborhood – Washington Square District. Safe and architecturally/historically interesting. Convenient walking distance to many sites, restaurants and shops – if you’re a city walker. An inexpensive place to stay – relative to other area B&Bs and certainly less than all of the area chain hotels. The owner, Marjorie, was very nice and trusting – leaving a key... More
