I picked Cornerstone because it was the closest and cheapest option for my USMLE Step 2 CS exam. However, I didn't notice how much I lucked out when I managed to get a reservation because I was in for quite a treat! The propery is very well maintained and the rooms exactly like the pictures posted on the website. Also, since so many students for CS pass through they are pretty knowledgeable about the exam. I was provided a very clear map with directions on how to get to the exam center which is lierally a 10 minute walk down the street. The "Continental Breakfast" was the best continental breakfast I've ever seen (homemade scones, homemade muffins, fresh strawberries, blueberries and kiwis!) and I'm interested in what their "Full Breakfast" on the weekend is like. I stayed in Franklin which has a separate private bathroom down the hall. It wasn't too inconvenient to walk there to use the bathroom. If I had to reach for a complaint - it would be that there isn't very much lighting in the room. I like my room bright for studying and I had to move one of the lamps closer for me to sit at the desk and read. But seriously, this is very minor and overall my experience was great. I will try to stay there again if I interview in Philly - even if it's not the cheapest or closest because Cornerstone was that great!
