“Awesome stay!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

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

Great experience in the Homewood suite by Hilton. I would recommend it to anyone. The rooms were nice sized and offered tons of amenities. In addition it was only a $9 cab ride to center city but there are tons of places right around the hotel. Breakfast was excellent. Didnt' get to use the exercise facilities or the pool this time but it looked pretty nice.

The hotel was very pleasant. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was easy to use (although the iPad-like controls were a little confusing). The fitness room was well equipped and clean, with a nice open atmosphere. Breakfast had a nice variety. The hotel has everything you need, plus the location is close enough to Penn.

Stayed on business. Pleasantly surprised. The staff and accomodations were outstanding. Room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Shuttle service was great. We were driven to area restaurants and picked up at no charge. Shuttle drivers were friendly and accomodating.

We stayed one night in order to be close to the hospital. This is a very clean, centrally located hotel. The bed was awesome. They have a very nice shuttle which can take you to the hospital complex nearby. It was a peaceful place to stay and I would highly recommend it.

The only downside was the somewhat long wait for the valet when we arrived Sunday night.
Tip- if you arrive on Sunday you can park around the corner for a few hours.

A beautiful property my first stay here after visiting philly for many years. I can highly recommend it if you want to visit the university area of philly. Penn Drexel are very close. Compared to the other hotels I believe it is the only one serving breakfast and even hot meals on selected evenings

It was a 10. The price is high but you get what you pay for. It is clean and luxurious. I liked all the high tech equipment and the kitchenette. I liked that you had touse you room key for the elevator and room for lights etc. The decor was modern and new. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was quiet.
