“Great proximity to for U of Penn Hospital”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

After a long day at the hospital it was easy and safe to take a free shuttle to the hotel and back again. Room can accommodate several people comfortably and nice to have a free breakfast included. Our focus needed to be at the hospital, this hotel afforded that with class.

Stayed here from 2/23-3/28 for work. This is a long time away from home no matter the accommodations. This facility was more than I could have hoped for. The rooms were fantastic in terms of space to relax at the end of the day, full kitchen to make meals, fantastic bed, etc.

The amenities were top notch also. The pool/fitness area were more than adequate and I think the lobby was one of the nicer ones I have seen. The hot breakfast and Welcome Home dinner each night were among the highlights for me. Being away from home that long, the last thing you want to do is eat out every single night. A warm, cooked meal and beer at the end of the day in the comfort of the dining room or guest room was outstanding.

The staff was very helpful also. Brought me extra hangers since I was there for so long. Helped with food suggestions, bars, sightseeing, etc. The valet (whatup Wyatt!) were great as well. Had our work vans outside and heating up each morning at 630am and greeted us with a smile. Wyatt especially did a great job of making us feel welcome and suggesting place to visit.

Overall, a 5 week work trip that I was dreading turned into a nice little vacation thanks to this facility. Could not recommend it any higher. If I am ever back in Philly, this is the only place I will stay.

Hotel staff is very helpful and always friendly. Beds are extremely comfortable and the hotel is kept clean. Shuttle service is offered throughout University City which is extremely helpful. I do not know why rates change from each time I stay, since we get a hospital rate. The food is sufficient although we wish there were some healthier alternatives. Overall I recommend this hotel to anyone that needs to travel for the surrounding hospitals.

Had a short, but great stay here. Clean, good value and updated decor with super friendly staff ready to help at every turn! Close to Penn and easy to get to train station. Would stay again - Homewood provides good value

Stayed here for one night during a conference at Wharton. Great shuttle van or walkable to UPenn. Nice clean room and furnishings. Like the ambience. Manager reception and breakfast were very nice. Great work out room. Definitely would return.

I spent five nights there for work at local university. This place does not have the quality expected from a Hilton hotel. Some front desk courtesy. Shuttle available, Walls between rooms are very thin. Fancy electronic keys that have to be reset often. I will not go back there. Average overall.
