My room was absolutely beautiful. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. There was an unpleasant smell in the lobby and the hallways were slightly dusty. I would definitely stay again and also recommend.

Great spot near plenty of shops & good Philly food. The staff was very helpful & polite. This hotel has an old fashioned feel & we enjoyed our quick stay. Highly recommend.

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Antonio is wonderful and kind.

The location invited us to explore historical Philly and enjoy the appetizibg cuisine. We found ourselves people watching and so aware of the place Philly holds in our story as Americans. The hotel view and decor all contributed to an emerson into rich culture and history.

Clean, friendly hotel in walking distance of family owned restaurants and the historic district.

I liked the massage tub. And that's all I got no other comments.

The hotel is fine. It's clean and the bed is comfortable. The service is uneven. One front desk lady was nice and personable. The other less so. The room is good, but the bathroom is awkward. No place to hang towels. The location is great. Walking distance from a number of sights! The free breakfast is a (as it typically is) a joke. Cereal and muffins.

Nice hotel. Real close to downtown. Right on waterfront.

Very nice experience. Was traveling for business. Convenient location. A great alternative to the standard business travel hotel.

We loved our experience at Penn's View Hotel. The rooms were very comfortable and we really enjoyed the the historic feel. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we were so close to all of the attractions we wanted to see. Highly recommend!

Did not sleep most of the night due to high volume of traffic on I95.Also the room should have black out curtains instead of blinds to eliminate the street lights.We thought the room was very nice but we did need to sleep.
