Interaction with Guests
You will be hosted by Joe Kalil who has a room on the second floor. He's friendly and quiet, happy to tell you about the city and the neighborhood..
We are in the historic Powelton Village section of West Philadelphia, just north of the Drexel Campus. The neighborhood has many large Victorian homes built in the 1860s and smaller homes like ours built in the 1890s.
This is the best neighborhood for getting around! We are within 1 1/2 blocks of three bus lines. 10 minute walk to Market Frankford Subway, to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, to the Riverwalk along the Schuylkill River. 15 minute walk to 30th Street Station and a Megabus. Near the Spring Garden exit of the Schuylkill Expressway. Easy door-to-door limo from the airport.
