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.

Close to Penn

I enjoyed the fact that the hotel is so close to my son's school and that we could walk everywhere we needed to go. The rooms were recently redone and are very nice and clean. The staff was pleasant and the room service was punctual and exactly as ordered.

The Inn at Penn

Overall - there are better hotels for the price. I would look for another next time in Philly. The room was very expensive considering but the quality was not in keeping with it. For example, the envelope containing the room key card says there will be a bill under the door on checkout morning for rapid checkout. I expected it. There wasn't and the desk said they had discontinued that policy. They could have said so at checkin. The hotel "nickel and dimes" you. The toilet seat was loose. I tightened it myself. The TV remote did not operate on the last day of my stay. The hot water was discontinued during some repairs making a very early moring shower impossible. No adjustment on the room charge. Staff was fine but that is to be expected at the room price.
