There is something to be said when you pull up and you see the hotel staff smiling and ready to assist you. This was throughout my stay. I thought the staff was incredible, but what struck me most was the quality of the room. The hallway was wide, inviting and well-lit. It reminded me of the Wynn in Las Vegas....

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...

Stayed at the Inn at Penn was a pleasant surprise. Well-priced, great service, nice rooms, great location, and quiet. In-room wifi was great for the work I needed to do. They also have a humungous air purifier in the room and leading edge power conservation technology.

This is a great hotel with decent rates (not sure about peak times with college student graduations, but otherwise great rates). The service of the staff is very good (front desk, valet, breakfast). It is a convenient location to the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University. You can walk to many restaurants and it is right next to the Penn...

We were in town for my sons interview with U Penn Vet School. This hotel met our needs for this quick visit. We stayed in one of the suites and it was very nice. Since this was a quick visit, we were not able to take advantage of this room but it was great. Only small problem was that the...

I've stayed at this hotel many times over the years and love it. It's a quiet hotel with a cozy bar and nice restaurant that pays attention to detail. The valet gives quick service. The rooms are impeccably clean and well furnished. Internet was adequate.

Very clean room, 2 super-comfy double beds with both firm and soft pillows available for each occupant. Towels were plush.

Chef available to make an omelette with your...

The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean, and any problems you might experience are handled well. Street parking is available at meters. There is a nice restaurant (Pod) nearby. The hotel is undergoing some construction at the moment that was somewhat disruptive for us. However, I would stay here again. I have also stayed at the Cornerstone Bed...

Loved the Pure room filter. Room was refreshing, clean and comfortable. Almost felt as if I were in a spa. Bathroom is gorgeous. Complementary bathrobes awesome. The parking was a bit expensive and I would have preferred to self park for less. Overall I was very pleased and had a great stay.
