“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Rooms were beyond expectations. Complimentary dinner on weekdays was unexpected and the quality of the meal was excellent. Excellent for family as the kitchen was very nice with full size refrigerator. We were however not happy with the $39 cost per night for parking.

This hotel was in a great location, close to both UPenn and Drexel. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was hard to believe it was a Homewood Suites and not a higher end hotel. Clean and very modern. We loved our stay and look forward to returning in the future

For the price, the place is a poor choice if you need to stay more than a day. Unfortunately anyone who needs to stay close to University City in Philly has few choices. I was lucky to complete my personal business in a 1 night stay.

I stayed for 2 nights with my two teens. Location is great if you're visiting Penn.. Safe, clean. We had one bedroom with pullout sofa in l. room. L. room was like a tiny, dark, dark cave.No window, very minimal lighting.l Hotel is more interested in conserving energy than in guest comfort. "Energy efficient" lighting system -light switches are some type of simmer device, but challenging to use consistently. Would try Sheraton next time for comparison.

Good experience, happy there is affordable hotel in city other than Center City. University City has many restaurants and you have easy city transit to go into and around historic Philadelphia. There are many things to do and see.

Great hotel with nice pool and great rooms. Located near lots of restaurants and PENN's campus. Felt very safe the whole time. Good morning free breakfast buffet. We ended up with a two bedroom suite which was nice and quiet. I would go there again
