I would absolutely stay here again if we had plans to return to Philly. This was the perfect place for our family of 5 a small dog. Perfect location and quiet, clean apartment. We parked our car at a lot just around the corner at an additional cost, but was convenient & easy. Furniture wasn't super comfy, but it was clean and had everything we needed and more. Outstanding location.

The apartment and building itself was great. Dealing with the company, on the other hand, was horrendous. They overcharged me and came back with several different fees they said were added to it. Even after that, their math was still wrong. I was on the phone for nearly an hour trying to get them to fix it. They also charge a 3.5% credit card fee that is listed only in fine print somewhere on the receipt in addition to the cleaning fee and resort fee that I didn’t see until after booking.

It was clean and fully furnished - conveniently located. Friendly staff.

We rented this in the summer and the air conditioning was a bit inconsistent between the bedrooms and the common quarters. However, overall it suited us (2 families) well and was in a decent location to get to a lot of good restaurants and attractions.

Rental agency staff went above and beyond. Truly helpful with everything. The location is perfect! Walking to great food, shopping and more!

Great deal!!!! So nice to stay in a play with 2 bedrooms, full kitchen and dining/ loge area. Definitely better than a traditional hotel. Highly recommend.
