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...

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...

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...

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.
