Stayed New Year's Eve to attend a concert at The World Cafe. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly helpful owners. Our room was wonderful, comfortable, cozy and quiet. Excellent breakfast and the B&B is beautiful. Street parking plentiful given the holiday schedule. Avoid

Hosts provided a warm welcome. My room was comfortable, quiet and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and timely for going to the Medical Boards Step 2 CS testing center (within easy walking distance). Just what I needed.

We chose Cornerstone because it seems to be a nice place and was close to the Half Marathon start. It turned out to be correct! A little walk from the train station! It was perfect, cozy and charming. We give 5 hearts from Sweden.

Is it close to public transportation to get around the city ?
Definitely! 30th street station is close for local trains and Amtrak. We took the subway from Drexel's campus and buses were also an option. Uber was available as well.

Is there plenty of parking available at cornerstone B and B and is it free
The parking is on street. During the time we were there, we were never more than a half block away, and generally, we were just across the street. It is free.

Sorry, no photos of the bathroom. It was ensuite and fully functioning, but the sink was not within the same space as the shower and toilet. Please don't let it stop you from staying here. The room I stayed in was on the 2nd floor.

We are within walking distance to the parkway so no need to drive or take the subway. We are less than 1 mile to the Philadelphia Museum of Art for example so not far. For more information take a look at the location page on our website to get an idea of where we are in relation to the Parkway. Chris

Cornerstone BnB is a great place to stay... close to Penn campus and lots of nearby eateries. Not familiar with Phiilly so can't help you in your directions/timing but wish you well
