Showed up and was not greeted warmly at all by reception. Very perfunctory. Amazed at the size of the room I felt like Harry Potter in this tiny room- idk sq ftage but it was half the size of what I expected no exaggeration. Closet was half the size of the room. Could barely walk around the bed. Order a...

Spent a weekend. A must see place. Lovely and grand lobby. All very well kept and tasteful. If you haven't stayed at an old school Grand Hotel, this would make an excellent choice. Our room was nicely decorated and in top condition. The bathroom was very small. Two don't fit if you are trying to get ready. There was street...

A historic hotel in the city with all the lovely character and charm of hotels from another era. The Lobby is inviting and the atmosphere invites to relax upon entering. It is the charm that makes this hotel a winner.

Some household cleaning issues in our suite, BUT the hotel as a whole is wonderful, and the history is fascinating. We did report the lack of cleanliness in our bathroom and kitchen to the front desk, and they appreciated the feedback, and said they would bring it to housekeeping's attention. The bed was blissfully supportive, and the room as quiet...

We booked a last minute trip and were very pleased with location, service and ambiance of this hotel. It was also fairly priced. Decor in lobby was great and late night food service to room was amazing.

We hosted a wedding reception at the William Penn. There were so many things done perfectly, from the wedding event planner ( Erin Rose) to the helpful and friendly bellhops - especially Bill and Dana. The front desk personnel were warm and genuine. The physical plant of the Urban Room and the hotel itself were beautifully historic and reception food...

We LOVE staying here, and most recently stayed here over Christmas. There is so much to say about the Omni William Penn. The location is perfect for anything you plan to do downtown! Going to a game? Two T station stops are within close walking distance (and it is free to the North Shore!)!! Going to a convention? You can...
