Shocked to say the least.

I was recently in town for the On The Run Tour. The hotels near there stadium were an arm a leg and maybe a torso. This hotel was reasonably priced however, what I didn't know that it was in campus. I even tried to cancel the reservation on my way (glad I couldn't) I even walked in with a headache. The reception notice offer me Motrin and water (life saver) To say the least I was horrified, a bunch of loud college students that I was about to encounter. Needless to say there was none of that. The hotel was quite the area was beautiful. A big plus was on the street parking because valet was long and expensive. The iPad in the room was quite a surprise. The bathroom was beautiful. I think my favorite part was the extra plugs they had just incase you forgot your own. A big plus I got free late check out because I was sooooo exhausted from the night before. I would deff stay again not during the scho year though lol.

Weekend getaway

I heard noises at night- some machinary noises 2-3 times- One was around midnight and a couple more times at the middle of the night, which woke me up. RM 511. The edges of the shower and shower head need to be to clean.

Nice hotel

A Hilton Hotel in University City. In a premier location for hotels in Philadelphia, PA, this AAA Four Diamond hotel is situated on the University of Pennsylvania campus. Stay at this hotel and be near medical and business districts and just 20 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).

This excellent hotel a former faculty club has a wonderful clubby atmosphere that makes you feel immediately at home. A very classy place with the advantage of being on the Penn campus. Staff is very accommodating.

Great place to visit UPenn

It comes as a surprise to find this hotel in the middle of the night at the center of the UPenn campus. Amazing accommodations with even an iPad in your room. Great and affordable breakfast buffet too.

Wow!

This may be the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. Staff are also clearly trained extremely well: bell desk, registration, valet were all fast, professional, and courteous. My only complaint is with the restaurant staff, who were surly and obnoxious. They must have missed the training. Fortunately, excellent food abounds around campus, and the overpriced hotel diner can be skipped easily.
