The Cornerstone was amazing. We stayed for one night with our teenage daughter and two of her friends in the Continental Suite. The room was immaculate, the accommodations were magnificent, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. I would definitely recommend the Cornerstone for anyone who wants to visit Drexel University and/or Philadelphia. Thank you for a great weekend!

Such a wonderful place to stay for our first visit to Philadelphia. This is a traditional property, with tastefully decorated rooms and history framed on every wall.

I stayed here for three nights on a business trip and found that it was actually less expensive than staying at one of the bigger chains downtown. Especially when factoring in parking. The hosts were very gracious and accommodated every single one of my needs. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the breakfast delicious. I would highly recommend staying here...

One of the nicest B&Bs I've stayed at. Highly recommended. The breakfast is awesome. The ambiance is unique. Not many places like this. The rooms were comfortable with lots of space to park suit cases and clothes.

We traveled with another couple and spent three nights at this bed and breakfast. Loved the rooms and it was super clean. The "continental" breakfast served during the week was amazing. Liz's pecan and cinnamon buns were especially delicious. The only thing that keeps this from five stars is the parking - or lack of parking. Although we were aware...

Thank you for your nice review of the Cornerstone B&B. As an urban B&B you are correct that parking can sometimes be an issue for our guests and is out of our control. The things that you enjoyed about our inn like the breakfast and how clean we keep our business are within are. Please come again.

My husband and I stayed at the Cornerstone for our very first stay in Philly, and we had a wonderful experience. First, this house is just stunning. Stained-glass windows, wrap-around porch, spacious rooms - Truly an enchanting home. We stayed in the Philadelphia room. It's located on the first floor away from other guest rooms, but it is right by...

We were not thrilled with this B and B. The parking was not at all good. Yes you could park free for some hours but during the day the car had to be moved. There was a small area of free parking if you were lucky enough to find a space. We did but moved the car outside the B...

First off the owners were very nice, helpful and friendly. I have no issues there. My only problem was I booked my room through Orbitz, I wasn't told when booking that my room didn't have an attached bathroom. While it was only 20 feet away, it was a huge inconvenience for me. Going back and forth was a problem especially...
