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.

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.

Wonderful West Philly hotel

We booked a room here through an online website to spend one night during a busy summer weekend in Philly. The entire city was booked up and this was the only place that we could find a room. Boy am I glad, though! It turned out to be extremely comfortable and pleasant. The staff, from the moment we got there to the time we left, were outstanding. They answered all our questions and were very respectful and kind. I came in dressed a bit shabby because we had just come straight from a full day concert out in the sun, but they did not judge me or give me a hard time. The valet attendants were especially courteous and I appreciated that. The room was beautiful, with a nice new flatscreen tv and an iPad to place requests on! How cool! The beds were clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious, stylish and clean. The stay here was fantastic and we will surely return to this location! On a plus, the area is pretty nice because it is on the UPenn area. You'll see mostly students around and the area is pretty safe, even late at night. Don't venture too far west, though. Safe travels!

Nice with a friendly staff

This is a top notch hotel but not downtown so when you want to do something you need to get a cab, which they get for you. Every staff member always asks if they can get you anything. The parking was pretty steep $39 for each night.
