Recent guest reviews

The garage is too small. There are two many beams in the garage. My new Car got scratched by the beam when turning. I’m unhappy

Liked being close to the penn relays. Staff was great. I think breakfast should be included as the hotel price doubles during the penn relays

The staff went above and beyond for us. My husband struggles with walking and they got us a wheelchair to use to get him atound.

Great location and staff. Rooms are in good shape.

Great pillows! And when we checked in (an hour early) the front desk guy upgraded us.

It's kinda old. I think it is time to change the shower curtain as it smells the bathroom. You can smell the old carpet smell when you walk into the room. For the price I would expect more than this. Although location is not bad, there are a lot of restaurants nearby and staff very friendly. I probably would not come back

Friendly check-in staff. Nice to have in/out parking privileges up to 6pm the day of check-out.

Had to change rooms- air conditioner not functioning. Hotel rooms / halls need work..looks worn and shabby. Housekeeping was very good. A family reunion on sat. nite TOOK OVER the pool and acted like it was their private domain. The following morning at 8a, pool deck still filthy from the party goers. Front desk staff were excellent.

Terrific location for all things U Penn...friendly staff, comfortable clean rooms with free wi-fi, plus on site in out parking! Strongly recommend

Great stay. Best thing is the restaurant serves authentic Chinese food and also American style breakfast choice.

Having a microwave and a fridge in the room would’ve been nice but overall it was okay

We appreciated the city parking right in the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. I requested that the room did not need to be cleaned or bed linens changed. But I did think the trash would be removed and used towels changed. I was there because my husband was having surgery at U of P hospital.

Great but too short and hope to use the hotel in the future.

Excellent hotel I like the facilities the pool,the gim ,m room is vey clean and comfortable

The staff were fantastic at all points. The hotel was clean. It is just out dated and could do with come renewal. The bathroom was adequate, but little things like the broken shower bar indicated poor maintenance. I like the location, was a bit disappointed with the onsite restaurant/bar. There should have been a more varied menu given guest's various food restrictions and allergies.
