the worst Hotel

the room was good, but the window was leaking, rain came from above , and cold air was coming everywhere out of it. the bed sheets were not clean. the WiFi was slow like a turtle, and sometimes got disconnected. I do not recommend this hotel at all.

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.

Good location for UPENN

The staff could've been a little nicer, but the location was about as close to Wharton (where I was visiting) as you can get.
