The room itself is cozy. Has a new tv with cable. Has coffered ceilings and is an ok place to rest your head. The house is quite fascinating but leaves a lot to be desired. If you're just looking for a place to sleep, this works well.

Gloria was very friendly and I enjoyed my stay in the Liberty Room. The breakfast croissants were a lovely treat! I stayed at Gloria's for several weeks on business and it was a nice quiet retreat to return to at the end of the day. Gloria routinely checked in to make sure I was doing okay. She once offered to wash my lab coat when she saw it had gotten dirty! Overall a thoughtful, wonderful host.

Gloria has a beautiful home and is a very lovely host. She kept communication open, checked in to see if I needed anything, and offered me some of her delicious cooking. Because there was a lot of snow during my visit, I was unable to take advantage of the backyard parking, and instead Gloria offered me parking in a nearby lot. However, after I left, I found a note on my car threatening to have it towed for being on private property.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at Gloria's AirBnb! It was our first time visiting Philly and we were grateful that we could leave the hustle and bustle of the city each night to get rest in a comfortable and quiet home. Her husband Rich warmly greeted us and was kind enough to let us check in earlier than expected. The home itself is beautiful and full of history, set in a charming neighborhood.

Dear Brittany, I am sorry for the old food. I was away and Rich, not my husband, may have not noticed the food aging. i am very sorry! I cleaned the old stuff and put all new fresh food for you the second day, I boiled eggs, give you fresh croissants and I didnt notice penut butter. Sorry! Beside this, I am very glad you loved the house and enjoyed your stay. Gloria
