“Hilton Inn at Penn review”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

We had an excellent experience at this Hotel. We have stayed there 4 times in the past year and we have enjoyed our stay every time. The location is great and the personal touch was much appreciated. The rooms were plush and the climate control system and the green based electricity conservation set up was clever. Hypoallerginic rooms are offered as well.

Although this was a quick overnight stay while in Philly, it didn't disappoint. I am normally a Starwood guy (they were all booked out), but I would gladly stay at this hotel again.

The beds were comfortable, the hotel was well appointed and they are relatively close to a few great places to go out and the Cira center/30th St Station, which is around 1mi away.

Very impressed with the Inn at Penn. Fantastic location in the heart of UPenn's campus, friendly staff, and nicely renovated rooms/common areas. Enjoyed an excellent breakfast in the hotel restaurant, complete greek yoghurt parfaits and made-to-order omelets. Continental Breakfast was free as a Hilton Diamond member; the full breakfast was a reasonable $4 upcharge. Would definitely stay here again!

I stayed at the hotel for one night and it was quite nice. The location in West Philly is obviously ideal for meetings at U Penn or Drexel as well as the many other institutions on Market St. The staff were friendly. It's located near lots of restaurants and other retail--I didn't try the hotel restaurant though. The room was clean and pleasant, and the bathroom was spacious. Corner rooms have the most space. Each room comes with free wifi and an iPad so if you're only bringing your laptop for internet, you could leave it at home. One nice little touch was an underbed nightlight that was motion activated, so you have an illuminated path back to bed if you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. It's a little pricey, but I would stay here again.

I was on the Penn campus for a talk, and was put up at the Inn at Penn: this is modern and the rooms are a notch above your typical business hotel. I like my creature comforts when I travel and I would be very happy to be at the Inn at Penn even for pleasure.

Room Tip: I typically ask for the highest floor, quiestest room

Green Features: Impressive Silver LED and it shows. This shows in the everyday amenities, from recycling bins in the rooms to the manner of lighting.

The Inn at Penn is a wonderful hotel in Philadelphia. We stayed there because we were going to a wedding on the University of Penn. campus. It was a 5 minute walk from the campus. The room was clean, there was a complimentary i Pad. The valet parking was an additional but it was well worth the price. There were restaurants and bars in the hotel. Impressive!

Great staff. Very friendly and very helpful. It rained one night and the front desk offered us umbrellas to use. Great location. We were visiting U PENN University and the hotel was only a couple of blocks away.
