Recent guest reviews

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.

yes. this hotel is ok .good place and good condition.ok that is all I want to say.

Best place to stay for going to visit someone at Penn. Across the street. Very lively street. Great places to eat within walking distance, chipotle, McD, Starbucks, etc.

I was recently in town for the On The Run Tour. The hotels near there stadium were an arm a leg and maybe a torso. This hotel was reasonably priced however, what I didn't know that it was in campus. I even tried to cancel the reservation on my way (glad I couldn't) I even walked in with a headache. The reception notice offer me Motrin and water (life saver) To say the least I was horrified, a bunch of loud college students that I was about to encounter. Needless to say there was none of that. The hotel was quite the area was beautiful. A big plus was on the street parking because valet was long and expensive. The iPad in the room was quite a surprise. The bathroom was beautiful. I think my favorite part was the extra plugs they had just incase you forgot your own. A big plus I got free late check out because I was sooooo exhausted from the night before. I would deff stay again not during the scho year though lol.

Clean and quiet room. Located a bit far off the city center. Valet parking at 39 bucks a night. Overall a pleasent stay.

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.

A Hilton Hotel in University City. In a premier location for hotels in Philadelphia, PA, this AAA Four Diamond hotel is situated on the University of Pennsylvania campus. Stay at this hotel and be near medical and business districts and just 20 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL).

Great hotel! Only issue was a long wait for valet to ring our car back in the morning. Other than that absolutely no complaints!

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.

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.

We came to leave our daughter at college and had 4 fantastic days in this hotel. Excellent location, service and overall delivered value.
