The bathroom was tiny. You could not put anything anywhere to get ready in there including the tooth brushes. I dried my hair out in the room. Beds were comfortable

Nice stay

This hotel is ideal for parent/children to visit UPenn. Very convenience. The only thing I don't like is parking, you have to pay for parking, but it is common practice in East Coast.

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 But the rooms are small and the common areas and parking lot are old style and outdated, even though the rooms are renovated.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.

Very good Hotel

The staff were more than helpful in resolving issues. Beds were very comfortable. GYM Equipment was excellently maintained. Location was good for my needs. Noodle bar restaurant phenomenal food. The room was clean, the bathroom not so clean, faucet moves and should not have. The internet a bit slow. Parking is 25 a night for hotel guests, it is 20 more a day for continental breakfast. Do not offer a shuttle to the hospital for family. Did not get to the pool this time.

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.

Very tired hotel trading on its location

Hotel has great location next to the Penn campus but there has obviously been little investment in the hotel in years. Rooms very tired. Little effort at making the experience a good one. I would not stay there again.
