Philadelphia is a bustling city overflowing with activity, history, and culture. The 'City of Brotherly Love' is a city where many come to learn about the history of America's roots by touring Independence Hall, viewing the Liberty Bell, and visiting the house where Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. What many visitors forget is that Philadelphia's history was written not just in a house that stood at Seventh and Market streets, but also in the neighborhoods where Philadelphians still live today. While much of Philadelphia has been modernized and updated, some structures remain the same as they were in the 18th century when John Adams and Thomas Jefferson strolled through the streets of Philadelphia during the American Revolution. One of the things that makes Philadelphia unique is its architecture and real estate. Just one example of unique real estate is the Trinity houses of Philadelphia. Below is some more information on this uniquely Philadelphia structure and how it has survived the test of time. What is a Trinity house? A Trinity house is a three-story house with each floor containing one room. The Trinity house is believed to have originated in Philadelphia as early as the year 1720, and nearly 300 years later, Trinity houses are still found across the city of Philadelphia. Sometimes called 'Father, Son, and Holy Ghost' houses or 'Bandbox' houses, Trinity houses are typically quite small with an estimated 400-700 square feet of living space (our home has 700 sqft). Please be aware that folks were smaller back in the 1700's when these homes were built. The stairs can be challenging if you are tall or have mobility issues. Important Note with regards to two night stays! We will take a 2 night stay only on a last min basis, if still available 1 week prior or if falls directly between two longer stays. Important Note with Regards to 3 night stays! 3 Days stays are $279/Night Plus Taxes & FeesMore

About the neighbourhood
Located in Washington Square, we are situated just 5 short blocks to the convention center. We are quietly tucked away on one of Philadelphia's most historic streets. Walking distance to attractions such as City Hall (2 blocks), Independence Hall (5 blocks) and the Liberty Bell (5 blocks). Washington Square has some amazing resturants of it's own but we are also in close walking distance to Rittenhouse Square and Old City which provide fantastic dining and nightlife.
