Located on the campus of Drexel University, this is a nice and comfortable place. However, if you're interested in doing anything downtown, or, for example, U. of Pennsylvania, it is quite far and taxi rides are pretty expensive. Except for occasional students, or groups of students, the streets around the inn are deserted. I saw only a bookstore and a couple of low-end stores several blocks away. And the only restaurant recommended by the hotel is really what the name, Draught Ale, ssays--it's more a watering hole, though the food is good, and the service pleasant.
Two comments about the rooms--they have a separate sitting area, which would be convenient for families. The rooms' lighting system is a bit inconvenient in that there is no nightstand or lamp next to the bed, so that one has to turn off the lights across the room and walk to the bed in the dark. A modest breakfast is served in the morning (included in the price) and one can supplement it at the cafe accesible from the hotel.
