great weekend trip

This hotel was a great bargain, we have stayed in Philadelphia before but usually in the center of downtown. I had never been to University City before but was surprised by how close it was to downtown less then $10 for a cab. The pool is really nice and was great for a nice swim outdoors when the weather is hot. The hotel itself is clean with updated rooms.

Great and Comfortable stay!!

I ended up picking this Hotel based on location and price preference. I couldn't have picked a better choice! It was clean, comfortable and close to the airport and subway stations. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The room was very clean and the beds were unbelievable comfortable, especially the pillows. I have a thing for hotels with awful pillows! The did offer room service that was limited, but they also had a connection with a restaurant/café next door which delivered 24 hours and the food was extremely reasonable and pretty good. I would definitely stay here on a return trip to Philadelphia and recommend to others!

Well located, but older style property.

Really well located in close proximity to University of Pennsylvania and Drexel. But the rooms are small and the common areas and parking lot are old style and outdated, even though the rooms are renovated. Rooms were small. But flat screen TV was great.

Rude Staff

Most of the staff members don't seem very interested in helping you, nor do they try to make you feel welcome.

Step 2 CS accomodations

Prepare to sleep with ear plugs because walls are paper thin. A night before step 2 CS def was not the most pleasant experience. Heard my neighbors blast TV and talk really loud. Otherwise, great location, walking distance from the testing center. Also, our sinks were clogged, water was not going down the sink and bathtub.

Nice visit to the city

It was a fine visit. Staff could have been more friendly and maid service was a bit eager to have us out when it was only 10 in the morning and checkout was not until noon!!

Great staff, wonderful location!

This hotel was in a great location and staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were updated and modern. with surge protectors, flat screen tv's and a refrigerator. The bathroom was a little dirty but the staff quickly addressed the issue. Tyne room was quite expensive for a 3 star hotel.
