Visited Philly for 4 days for a conference back in April. Staff was extremely friendly. Ms. Joyce in housekeeping, Wyatt the valet, and the front desk staff gave us recommendations on places to go and things to do while we were in town. It was about a 10 min walk to the metro station and on the warmer morning, we caught the metro downtown to the convention center and back (for $2.25) and on the colder days, we were able to get a taxi for $10. We had a one-bedroom suite and they also provided us with a rollaway bed. The tablet remote was an unexpected surprise. We couldn't get one of our lights to go out the first night though, but maintenance promptly came to fix it. Breakfast was great! They provided a variety of options that changed slightly each day. Both the lobby area and the breakfast room were very spacious and comfortable. My friends and I used both areas during some of our downtime for studying. I glimpsed the fitness area and the pools, both of which looked extremely inviting. Free dinner is also provided on Monday - Thursday. Unfortunately, I didn't get the opportunity to try out the dinner or the pools/fitness areas. It is located extremely close to UPenn, but the neighborhood looks slightly downtrodden, but it was only a short drive to most places around town. The cost of valet parking was a little bit steep ($40) and was the only parking option. Otherwise, it was an awesome stay and I would definitely come back
