“Homewood Suites at Penn”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Good location, great hotel with spacious rooms, numerous amenities, and a friendly professional staff. Would recommend this hotel to business professionals or families. Rooms are well laid out for conducting business meetings, the separation allows for professional appearance. Neighborhood is full of restaurants and shops of all price ranges. I would stay here again.

We were at this hotel for my daughter's graduation from the University of Pennsylvania. Despite a crazy busy weekend, front desk and valet service ran very smoothly Location is a block and a half from campus but still a good walk to graduation but very close to my daughter's dorm.

This hotel was spacious, staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Rooms are quite large and having a kitchenette was great for our group. Lobby very lovely. Breakfast adequate for inclusive. Great having coffee available 24/7! Beautiful pool. Great location to walk on campus of University of Pennsylvania.

We chose this hotel because it was walking distance to the people we were visiting in Philly. We were impressed with everything but the breakfast and coffee were poor quality. Also was surprised at the daily cost of parking. We left our car near relatives several blocks away.

My family enjoyed our stay in Philadelphia at Homewood Suites and made our stay very enjoyable. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We swam in the pool and enjoyed all of the amenities at the hotel. The staff helped to meet all of our needs as we have a handicapped child with us.

It's Philly right? And even most locals will admit that they are "rough around the edges" which is putting it nicely. So you normally get that rough treatment in lots of places. But this HS excelled in customer service! The valet greets you nicely and with a smile. They open your door and ask if you need help with your bags. They point you to the elevators and let you know that check in is on the third floor. When you come back from a walk they welcome you back and when you leave they thank you for staying and ask if you need directions. This valet service sends this hotel over the top for me. Hopefully the management there will read this and pass the kudos along.

But the hotel itself is great too. Its only about 2 years old and still in great condition. Everything still looked new. The room doors are very heavy and seal well and on our floor there werent any rooms opposite. If you need quiet and comfortable this is the place.

The location is great as its just a few minutes drive into downtown with all the restaurants. Its on the edge of the University so there are some eateries but mostly fast food. About a block or two east on the corner (same side of the street as the hotel) is a full size grocery store - Fresh Market or something. Ask the valet for directions but you cant miss it. There are frat and sorority houses nearby so it might get noisy on the street on a Friday or Saturday night but you wont hear anything in the hotel.

Walking in the day on Chestnut (I think it was) seemed safe. And i would probably be okay even up till 10 pm or so with walking in the area. We saw quite a few campus police in the area but ask the staff about safety in the area if you are going to walk around.

Great place to stay!
