This seems clearly designed for the trendy traveler. The clean room design dispenses with a bedside clock and coffee maker. And why not, since I use my phone for the alarm and would love to trek down to the lobby for coffee. But, why not have a power outlet at the beside for

MarkpS8667GN, Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review! I'm so glad that my team was able to make your family's stay in Philly extra Special! I believe that we had you in one of our University Suites which has an extra room like you described as well as a kitchen. This is one of my favorite suites and it's a great option for guests who need that extra space. It also sounds like you had some time to visit our restaurant Co-op while you were here so I'm glad that your were able to take advantage of that during your stay. Thank you again for your incredible feedback. Hopefully we will see you and your family again the next time you are in town! All the Best, Audrianna Sorrentino Front Office Supervisor

The service was excellent- from the check in/out, to the valet parking, to the front desk to ask questions. The Study has small, comfortable rooms with large shower and bath. I requested a fridge and microwave and they said no problem. The beds were very comfortable, there are

If you have business in University City (Penn, Drexel, U of Sciences), there is simply no better option than The Study. The lobby is incredibly tranquil and stylish. I literally would not mind setting up my laptop and working in the lobby all day. Check in was friendly and easy.

The Study is a new and welcome addition to University City. Rooms are new and clean. Service is good. Gym is adequate. Relative to the Sheraton, this place is a huge step up. I have two issues. First, no coffee machine in the room (although you can get one if you ask). The

Contact the hotel directly, but I do not think they have a shuttle to the hospital. They are a few b;locks from the hospital. The one hotel that does have a shuttle is Homewood Suites. I have seen the shuttle there numerous times.

Is there yoga close to the study? Do they have an exercise facility?
Hello! We work with the beautiful Drexel Gym across the street. The hours of their classes are online and do provide a yoga class. The gym is $10/day through our hotel. In addition, we have a fantastic gym with brand new equipment on property. Enjoy!
