Experience Life at The Commonwealth by Stay Alfred

With two spacious bedrooms and a pull-out sofa, this condo accommodates up to 5 people. The master bedroom features a plush king bed, large closet, and adjoining bathroom. In this private oasis you'll probably forget you aren't at home. The second bedroom, on the opposite side of the apartment, has a heavenly queen bed and spacious closet. Privacy is never an issue in this condo.

Hardwood floors throughout are just the tip of the iceberg as far as upscale elements. Both bathrooms have been outfitted with premium Grohe fixtures. The kitchen boasts custom-crafted European cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel GE appliances. And let's not forget the in-home Bosch washer and dryer.

While it might be hard to convince yourself to leave this amazing apartment, you can take solace in the fact that you don't have to be gone long as it is close to everything! Located in the "Midtown Village" section of Philadelphia's City Center, the trendiest restaurants, shops, and attractions are at your doorstep. The famous Reading Terminal Market is blocks away, offering the finest locally grown produce and fresh meats, seafood and poultry; if you don't have time to cook, grab a sandwich from DiNic's or Salumeria.

Less than a mile away from The Commonwealth are a plethora of historical sites such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Betsy Ross House. But history isn't the only thing this location has to offer. Philadelphia's art and cultural epicenter—the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Philadelphia Museum of Art—is within two miles of your home base. Don't forget to pose for a picture on the museum's famous Rocky Steps. To really treat yourself after a long day of sight-seeing, head down the block to try one of Capital Grille's famous dry-aged steaks. Then stop for a nightcap of house-aged spirits at Bank & Bourbon on your way home.

Let Stay Alfred host your next trip to Philly. Stay smart. Stay Together. Stay Alfred!

Great location and very helpful management staff

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal place to stay while in the city visiting with another couple. Walking distance to Old Town, and lots of great places to eat and have a few drinks. The two bathrooms was ideal while sharing the apartment. The Stay Alfred Staff was extremely helpful and easy to get in touch with.

Great stay in centrally-located Condo

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed exploring Philadelphia from this centrally-located condo which was within walking distance of both historic sites and new hip restaurants. The condo itself was handsomely decorated and well-appointed with appropriate dishes, etc. And, it was very clean!

Great Location & Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with Stay Alfred in this Philadelphia condo. It was perfectly located with just about anything you want, within walking distance. The check-in was very easy and the the person at the door was very personable and helpful. The place was very well appointed and looked like the pictures. It was clean and well maintained. We had a very comfortable stay. We had everything that we needed to make a good home cooked meal, and there were stores close by to purchase groceries. It was Halloween weekend, so it was a little noisy outside, which carried into the unit, but we had fun people watching.

My one complaint would be how slow the wi-fi was. I became so frustrated that I eventually just logged off of my computer and started using my cell phone wi-fi.

Other than that, it was great. I will definitely stay again if it's available.

Don't miss Reading Terminal Market, which is near by. We became addicted!
