“Very pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 20 February 2008

I would highly recommend this hotel to visitors to the University of Pennsylvania. It is comfortably furnished, clean, well located, and a great value. There is convenient self parking at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Reviewed 21 January 2008

Very average hotel at best. Rooms need serious updating. Housekeeping staff constantly knocking on door. Disappointed that, while the club lounge is down, they did not take care of their frequent starwood guests. Typically they would offer a free breakfast in their restaurant, at other starwood properties. Not so at this location.

The food at the hotel is a plus though. Perfect location to the universities...Staff and management could be a bit more professional.
