Breakfast was amazing!. This place located in the smack middle of UPenn walking distance to any event in UPenn. Very nice room and set up.

No heat after midnight. Room temperature set at 75 but it was freezing. Hotels in general turn off the heat at night and this place was no exception. Despite paying $600+ for the room.

It was very nice, clean and the staff were courteous at every stop.

Wife's Birthday weekend. The staff made the experience special with complimentary breakfast and fruit, cheese, crackers, and champagne platter. She loved every minute of her surprises. Thanks so much!

beautiful hotel with nice staff nice location steps from UPENN campus

This hotel was wonderful. The staff were wonderful, extremely friendly and helpful. There are some great places to eat and have a beer or two within walking distance - perfect location right in the university district.

The Inn at a Penn is lovely and essentially right on campus. Perfect place to stay when visiting my son at school!

Will book for sons graduation in spring 2018 each time we come in to fill it out there we stay at this Hilton great location

Gracious rooms and staff make this a very pleasant stay for parents and families.

What friendly staff they have and just a beautiful crisp hotel

Stayed here for Step 2 CS. Perfect location for it, restaurants and coffee shops in very close proximity. My riom was very clean and the bed was one of the mist comfortable i've rver slept in.

We loved the hotel, in house restaurants, service, and location. Would definitely stay again. Especially for Drexel Parents.

Overall it was great. But the bed was not that comfortable. I did not sleep very well because of it.

For the price, I would hope for something more, like a complementary continental breakfast, or an in room snack. Cheaper moderate hotels offer this and it is a world of difference, especially since the breakfast offerings are practically the same, only the Hilton will set you back 20 bucks. I also would have liked to have seen shower caps and toothbrushes, though I did bring my own.But otherwise,very clean, comfortable hotel.

The hotel was well-located for what we needed to do on our short trip, and I wound up wishing that we'd had a little more time to explore. While not insanely spacious, the bathroom was well-designed and interesting with great toiletries, and the room quite comfortable. It is right next door to shopping, including the university book store, but also a cute home and gift store. The only drawback I'd see is proximity to great restaurants, as it is in a college area.

If you are visiting the University of Pennsylvania you can not get any closer than this! Great hotel and great location.
