Great choice near University of PA

This is a newer hotel right on Walnut Street just blocks from the University of Pennsylvania campus. First impressions from the open and spacious third floor lobby with soft seating and a fireplace made us realize that this would be a very comfortable visit. The suite had a new, fully equipped kitchen, a large well appointed bath, lots of seating options (our room had a kitchen table with 2 chairs, a desk with a swivel chair, a sofa and an easy chair) and a very comfortable bed with lots of pillows and a fluffy duvet. The room was high-tech with a large flat-screen TV and a tablet room-amenities controller that included music, relaxation sounds, weather forecasts and an alarm clock. Our room was a handicapped accessible room with a seat in the shower but that did not detract from the comfort. The only thing the room lacked was a safe. Like all Homewood Suites, the hotel includes a full breakfast and dinner in the evening on Monday through Thursday. We did not eat dinner since we were there on a Sunday, but the monthly menu tacked to the door of the refrigerator in the room looked inviting. There is a well stocked shop that sells microwaveable foods and snacks. The dining room on the lobby floor also has an outdoor seating area. Just off the lobby are an exercise room and an indoor pool and hot tub! We also used the free, convenient shuttle service to get to and from our evening event. The parking is valet only and a little on the expensive side, but there are parking garages or street parking in the area. This was definitely one of the nicer hotels we have stayed in when in Philadelphia and would be fantastic for an extended stay.

Splendid hotel in a nice neighbourhood

Clean and modern room with - lamps can be controlled from pad. Feel like an apartment I really would be happy to live in for a while. Breakfast good, with waffles, meat, potatoes, cereals. Bus 21 goes nearby to city centre and the ride does not take more than 10 minutes. The campus neighbourhood is nice.

Penn Parent Stay

Stay was good but way too expensive. For moving in I would stay here but for subsequent visits I may stay at a less expensive hotel.
