“Pleasant place to sleep”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We were only there for an overnight medical-related trip, and didn't arrive until 10:00pm, so we didn't have time to enjoy any of the facilities. The staff was very courteous and friendly, and the bed was very comfortable. We did enjoy the complementary breakfast the next morning before we left.

My family and I had a fabulous stay at this hotel. The staff was fantastic, the room was perfect for the 4 of us, the free breakfast and dinner were better than expected, and we got great use out of the pool. It is also a great location for exploring the UPenn campus and surrounding stores and restaurants. We will certainly stay here again.

We reserved the one bedroom suite and it was the perfect size for our toddler to run around and feel like home. The kitchen had a full size fridge and stove top to cook, cabinets and a table, tv. and sofa bed in the living room. Bed was very comfortable and we all slept very well. Checkin was quick and everyone was friendly. Valet parking is $39 per night. There is street parking but you would have to figure out if you could leave your car there all night. Its by the university, hence the hotel name, so you literally pass by several frat houses. Little restauratns walking distance for a quick bite and its a very cute, clean area. A 10 minute drive will get you to some amazing restaurants and shops. There was a nice indoor pool with a Jacuzzi, free breakfast and a business center with two computers (printer there did not work the two days I worked). We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Suites on 4th floor where we stayed had pretty nice views for a city and great apartment style rooms...

My daughter and I happily checked into the Homewood Suites in preparation for a long awaited three day cooking class at the Restaurant School across the street. On June 28 we returned to our room at 5:30pm only to find it had not yet been cleaned. I was appalled as we had left the room at 8:30am and my daughter was suffering from a migraine and really needed to lay down. That was not possible if we wanted our room cleaned. When I complained to the Director of Housekeeping, all she could say was that the staff had been very busy that day. Really?!? I travel a lot and have never encountered a room not cleaned by late afternoon. I would never stay here again and would think think twice about staying at any Homewood Suite.

Room Tip: Good luck getting your room cleaned!

The location was great and the staff were polite and hospitable. I especially enjoyed the breakfast and dinner (with wine!) included in the price. I will definitely come back here and heartily recommend it.
