My room was spacious, clean, comfortable. Staff members were super nice, helpful, with initiative. I liked the coffee in the mornings, the lobby, the other guests.I felt safe and happy during my 7 nights there. Thank you and Congratulations.

Our room was very nice, a good size and walking distance from a lot of great places to visit. The only problem was not having a fridge in our room, couldn’t keep our food or drinks cold. other than that i had a nice stay!

Property was nice. Staff and management were nice. Location was close to the University of Pennsylvania, which was nice. Access to SEPTA was nice. Service was nice. The hotel was clean, which is nice.

Comfortable rooms, including comfortable workspace. Beautiful lobby, great options for working in the lobby.

New hotel with good brands of sink and toilet which was a little too low for my average height. Basic shampoo, conditioner and lotion in the bathroom so bring your own q-tips .. There was no blackout shades so not a restful sleep. Towels were rough. Shower was good and had hot water. Coffee and tea between 7-10 am. In a good university location but a bit pricey if you come on the weekend.

Location is convenient to 30th Street Station, Penn and Drexel. Easy walk to Center City. The hotel is surrounded by college-oriented restaurants including some interesting menus. The hotel is new and modern, pretty quiet, nice ground floor restaurant with room service option.

good safe location. Staff were friendly and helpful. No major issues. Was in town for a meeting so didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel.

No ice or kettle available in the rooms (only on request)

Nice friendly staff, good clean rooms and proximity to UPenn

Meh. Sewage smell in elevators. Kinda tired hotel in need of fix up. Nobody at front desk for check in, some staff nice others a bit gruff. You can do better for the price. Some Indy hotels do well but spg out executes the study.

Beautiful hotel. Great restaurant and staff. Rooms were clean. Very accommodating with check out and adding a microwave to the room.

Perfect location, extremely fast Wi-Fi, and, simply, a very nice room.
