Centrally located at the corner of 10th and Lombard Streets, in a safe upscale area of center city and easily reached by car, train, bus or plane. Built in the early nineteenth century, my home is historically certified and is furnished with art and antiques from around the world. You will be within easy walking distance to the Convention Center, Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, Pennsylvania and Jefferson Hospital, Magic Garden, theater, great shopping and much more. There are many wonderful restaurants and cafes a few steps away which will suit all tastes and budgets.
Three rooms are offered. Although each room holds one or two comfortably, I can accommodate a total of 8 people traveling together. The master suite is on the ground floor, and the queen and the twin are on an upper floor.
All rooms contain free WiFi, cable TV, small refidgerators, microwaves, coffee makers, telephone and much more. Each unit has its own heat and air-conditioning so guests may adjust the temperature for their comfort. In addition, your room will be stocked with continental breakfast foods (coffee, tea, juice, bottled water, yogurt, cereal, and milk). Dining table, dishes, etc. are also supplied so that guests may help themselves at their convenience. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned on a daily basis. There is metered and timed on-street parking (for visits of two nights or more the city offers visitor's parking permits for $15, must be purchased in advance, email for details), as well as a commercial public parking garage one block away.
It is very important that you give me your approximate arrival times. While check-in and check-out times are somewhat flexible, there is no front desk. I want to be sure to be able to greet you when you arrive. I am in most of the time, and I am reachable 24 hours a day by email, cell phone or text. I share my home with three small dogs. They are not permitted in the guest areas.
I have been hosting guests for over 30 years and enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I am a world traveler and would love to share my extensive art and antique collection with you. It would be my pleasure to act as your personal concierge and help you enjoy what my wonderful city of Philadelphia has to offer.
