Tired of hotels, we chose this Bed and Breakfast for its beauty and location. Both of these were spot on. We could walk to the event and restaurants. But what made the stay here memorable were the host and hostess, Liz and Dennis. They were very welcoming and made excellent breakfasts for the weekend meals. In fact, I had to... More

I will be a Drexel Parent for the next 5 years and I plan on staying many times at the Cornerstone. Clean, beautiful and very comfortable. Chris went way beyond his role as innkeeper to assist my daughter and I. I look forward to my next trip to Philly!

This is a great place to stay when visiting Drexel University - all the school buildings were within a short walk. Many restaurants were also within an easy walking distance. The hosts Dennis and Liz were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was delicious. This is a real family run operation and we met one of the children and grandchildren. I... More

I visited Philly to take the USMLE Step 2 CS exam, and decided to stay at this cozy inn based on prior recommendations from similar exam candidates.I was most definitely not disappointed! From the charming interiors of the inn to the scrumptious breakfast menu - every moment of my stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The hospitality and warmth of the... More

The Cornerstone is a beautiful B&B in University City, w/in easy walking distance to the AMTRAK station. We arrived really early on a Friday, too early to check in (as previous guests were still in the room), but Dennis welcomed us with coffee, waived the early check-in fee, and let us stash our bags while we explored Philly. He also... More

I registered late for my conference in Philadelphia and all the conference hotel rooms were taken. I found the Cornerstone Bed & Breakfast online and stayed there this weekend. It is one of the most charming B & B's I've stayed in, every inch looks lovingly restored to its Victorian origins--except with all the modern conveniences and amenities tastefully blended... More

Dennis and Liz are wonderful hosts of Cornerstone B&B. I was made to feel so welcome from initial telephone booking, arrival, my 3 nights and the morning I left. I would definitely recommend Cornerstone B&B to future guests who find themselves needing accommodation in this part of Philadelphia.

We came in to Philadelphia for a college visit and found the Cornerstone Inn B & B! The home is a beautiful Victorian and the public rooms are lovely and welcoming. We stayed in the Fairmount Room, and it was perfect. Extremely clean and comfortable with a private bath area. Jules and Chris are wonderful hosts and really make you... More
