Walking distance to University of Penn, Drexel, U of Penn Hospital(s). Clean, comfortable with helpful staff. My wife had to have surgery at the hospital. Since we had to come from out of town, and still check into the hospital at 5am, we made it a special event by staying over at the hotel. It was Valentine's Day. Nearby are...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

My most recent stay was in early December 2016 but I had stayed there once a couple of years ago. I would go out of my way to stay here again. The service is exceptional and the staff genuinely welcoming. I felt like the favorite niece of a wealthy aunt. I love the atmosphere, the dark wood panelling, the Living...

Ideal location - in the heart of UPenn's campus. Short cab ride to the airport. Luxury around every corner - from the fireplace and lounge seating in the library to the dining room and room service options. Room was well appointed (empty fridge, safe, plenty of closet and bureau storage, lounging couch and chair) and the bathroom was super clean...

My son and I stayed here while touring UPenn. Thought\ the room was showing some age (peeling wallpaper), it was clean and comfortable. The hotel has very nice common spaces, a friendly staff, and extremely convenient location if you're touring UPenn.

Just across the street from UPenn, this is a newly renovated beautiful place to stay. The restaurant Penne was delicious for a late night dinner with son soon after I arrived. The rain was coming down hard the next day and I was provided with a giant umbrella for my walk around campus.

We stayed at this Hilton for several days while a close relative had major surgery at U Penn hospital. Desk staff were professional and efficient. Very quiet, clean rooms with all amenities. We had a very good breakfast with many unexpected, but delicious buffet items. And even the valet parking attendants were kind and friendly. They all made our stay...

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Lights and thermostat went out constantly due to motion detectors not detecting movement. Trying to do jumping jacks at 3am to wake up the motion detector (which turns on all of the lights in the room - at 3am!!), just to turn the heat back on, was absolutely terrible. The...
