This place was perfect; quiet, cozy and a short ride to the Barnes, the Philadelphia Art Museum and the Rodin museum, not to mention the Franklin Institute. The house was lovely, clean and the accommodations very comfortable. The owners were helpful and friendly but not in your face....

The Cornerstone B&B is perfect -- everything you want from a Bed & Breakfast experience. First of all -- the house itself is cozy and adorable. I was there on some cold Pennsylvania nights, and it's the perfect place to snuggle under the covers while the wind and snow blow outside... or, even better, to sit with a book and...

My experience couldn't have been better--the house is very nice, and the hosts are lovely people who are straightforward and extremely accommodating. I needed to leave at an early hour to get to my program at Penn, and they woke up extra early for me on BOTH weekend days to make me a full breakfast. The breakfasts were amazing--right down...

Thank you for your review of the Cornerstone. Glad to hear that you found the breakfast "amazing". After all what good would a B&B be without good coffee and a good breakfast to get your day going. Please stay with us again.

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!

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.

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.
