Or you can eat out. Philadelphia has lots of great restaurants. I can recommend many based on where you want to go and what you are in the mood for. This is one of my favorite things about Philadelphia - all the amazing restaurants.
A washing machine and dryer are available if you need to do laundry.
There are 3 patios
1) Backyard patio
2) 3rd floor balcony patio
3) Roof-top patio has an amazing view of downtown Philadelphia (Center City). This is one of the best features of the house. I highly recommend a glass of wine or a beer on a nice night and enjoy the view.
=== Internet Access
There is WiFi throughout the house.
There is limited street parking available. Getting around center city is easy enough that you do not need a car. In fact, a car is actually a hindrance in Center City.
I am located about 10 mins walking distance south of Rittenhouse Sq in a neighborhood called Graduate Hospital.
There are multiple bus lines that run close by. There are also subway lines and taxis all throughout the city. If you want to be economical, take the bus or walk. If you are in a rush, take a taxi. I find taking the bus or walking to be best.
=== Price & Availability
I do a solid job of maintaining the price and availability calendar here on airbnb.com
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as the guest wants.
My neighborhood, Graduate Hospital, is great. Its quiet, friendly, and in walking distance of downtown.
Public transit, SEPTA, is convenient. There are three bus lines that run within 2 blocks of my house. Using transit directions on (website hidden) Maps gives accurate directions to anywhere in the city.
Other Things to Note
When requesting to book, I ask the following:
1) Please have your profile filled out as much as possible. This allows me to gauge who you are.
2) Please tell me about yourself and your visit to Philadelphia.
Welcome to my home. All I ask is that you be polite, respectful, and treat my home as if it were your own.
1. Please take off your shoes upon entering. I hardly ever where shoes in the house.
2. Lock the door when you leave.
3. Clean up after yourself ie don't leave a mess laying around
I cannot recommend Ryan's home highly enough.
Very new, modern and clean.
On a personal level, Ryan was one of the most laid back and friendliest people I've had the pleasure of meeting in a long time.
Immediately welcoming, helpful and interesting to speak with.
There is a beautiful cat living there with him. Timid, gentle and a little talkative. It doesn't take long for her to warm up to you and she loves a scratch.
A really enjoyable stay in a great home, with a great host, in a great city with no stress.
I had a great experience here! The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable, the location was walking distance to everything in center city I needed while apartment-hunting, and Ryan and his fiancee were kind and helpful. Ryan gives good recommendations for things to do - I went to Spruce Street Harbor Park due to his advice and I was so glad I did! Also, the view from the roof is seriously unbeatable.
And FYI for cat enthusiasts: this house is home to the friendliest little cat ever. I'm pretty neutral about pets, but even I couldn't resist the endless cold, wet kitty kisses.
Ryan was a wonderful host - communicative, available, accommodating and welcoming. His apt is pristine - the guest bedroom and bathroom are modern and equipped with everything one could need for an ultra comfortable stay. Getting in and out of apt couldn't be easier with its keyless entry, and the skyline view from the roof deck is postcard worthy. Id gladly stay there again!
Ryan was out of town for our visit but was readily available by phone. We had use of the home; however, we were out a lot and really just slept there! Great accommodations! Thanks Ryan for a smooth visit! We hope to be back!
Ryan was awesome! Super friendly and very accommodating. He made an extra effort to get the room cleaned right away so that we could check in a bit earlier than expected to make my daughter's graduation mid afternoon that day.

About the Host, Ryan
I've stayed at various places via AirBnB, all with very positive experiences. Because of that I'm willing to be a host as well. I like to ski, swim, mountain bike, drink wine, travel, enjoy the city of Philadelphia, and overall just have a good time and meet new people.
