Nice stay near the train station

Computers don't work well

I was attracted by the promise of an in-house desk computer. It was so slow that it was useless. I got nothing from it.

Reasonably priced and comfortable

This hotel was reasonably priced for an in town hotel. The room was equipped with a computer and internet connection free of charge. Maid service was slow and not particularly thorough.

Nice hotel to stay for my visit

Clean, comfortable, very nice rooms. The staff were all very accommodating and helpful. I particularly enjoyed the easy location near UPENN and the hospitals--everything was within walking distance and very convenient.

Unparalleled location

Great location at the heart of UPenn; just a couple of blocks from Wharton. Hotel staff was very friendly and prompt to help. The restaurant is not up to the hotel standard whatsoever. Choose a different spot to have your meals.

Trip to Philadelphia

The location of this hotel is perfect. Very close to the university. Many restorants are a walking distance from the hotel. The Korean restorant in the hotel seems very popular, but I am not used to Korean food. Over all it was a good experience.
