I liked the friendly service and great rooms. The kitchen is a great plus for long stays I guess. I am very satisfied with my stay. I will definitely recommend this place. Also a very reasonable price for valet parking.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I use a wheelchair and the room was great (which doesn't always happen). Everyone was great, but their shuttle driver, Wayne, was a real standout for me...very kind and compassionate. The hotel is near a lot of food, shopping, UPenn, and hospitals. Philly is super fun.

Homewood Suites was the perfect choice for a family visit in Philly. We can bring our dog, visit our grandson, and eat in or out as if we're at home. We had one small problem with our TV and someone came in minutes to adjust it.

We'd stayed here before and liked it, but this time we were disappointed. The breakfast was one step up from the standard "continental" breakfast in that they had eggs, potatoes and bacon, but the eggs were squares of hard-cooked scrambled eggs cooked in some sort of baking pan, the was skimpy but ok and the potatoes were barely cooked. We...

Very nice hotel. Staff is great. Only problem was the "valet parking" (the only parking they offer) which is $39 per night and staffed by one poor, hardworking soul. LONG lines in and out. Lower the price or add staff...too inefficient. Otherwise, great and convenient place to stay.

Great staff and location at Univ of Penn. The hotel stays busy with family and future students checking the campus out. The rooms are modern and clean. Breakfast is poor in quality of selection. The work out room and pool are clean and spacious. The location is prime for graduation.

Although the price was right and the setting was terrific, our stay was awful. Our room was dirty and housekeeping never came to clean it. The "free" breakfast was awful: cold eggs, rubbery sausage and stale bread and pastries. The fruit was shriveled and old. The parking valet tried to hustle us and gave us the impression that we HAD...

My son was sick. Threw up about an hour after we went to bed, and I was told by the front desk that housekeeping leaves at 11p, so they didn't know about getting me new bed linens!!!!!!! Full kitchen suite had very limited utensils and one plate and 2 bowls, etc.

Small rooms but clean. The view from the window was my favorite part. Friendly staff. The only problem for me was the parking. Didn't want to pay for parking but u did find parking on the street Will stay again if I'm in the area
