We had a wonderful few nights at Cornerstone whilst on a working trip to Philly. The owners were welcoming, knowledgeable and forthcoming with advice and tips (e.g. about the all-important issue of recommending good places to get food). Our room was cosy and well appointed as well as spotlessly clean. Breakfast was amazing, especially with all the home-baked items on... More
