"Great first time experience"
I loved it! The convenient location to my client and downtown Philly. I'm definitely planning on coming back. They have coffee/hot water in the lobby which is the only thing i wish was available in the room. Other than that, everything was splendid!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to everything we needed to do!"
The hotel was very clean and the staff very helpful. The hotel is older but very kept. The parking was expensive for the hotel. They don't have places to park so you have to park in a parking lot that cost 23.00 a day.But overall we enjoyed our stay, we were there for the commissioning of our son's ship for the navy at Penn's Landing. Great locatio […] n!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Sheets have me a rash and the bed was uncomfortable. Staff were very helpful and breakfast was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location but thin walls"
This hotel is in a good location within walking distance of historical sites and good restaurants, which is the only nice thing about it. The walls are very thin, we were awoken at 2 am to the couple next door to us, as well as the restaurant below throwing out their trash full of glass bottles. The parking lot was pretty small and had to double park […] many cars. The bathroom and room we had were small and overall pretty overpriced. But at least they offer WiFi and breakfast with your stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love Old City, Philadelphia"
Love the quaint boutique quality of this hotel. Comfy rooms, lovely continental breakfast. Great restaurant and bar downstairs. Highly recommend staying there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stay to attend comissioning"
The historic charm and ambiance is really a plus for this hotel . Location is outstanding, especially for our purposes. we were only there one night this time to attend the commissioning of the USS Somerset. Our room had been fully renovated, very comfortable and clean, the windows and doors sound proof the room so well we did not even hear the ship's […] horn! some might be hesitant due to location so close to I-95, but we did not hear anything from outside. So easy to get to, the parking right next door is very convenient and affordable for the area. Subway across the street as well as bus transportation if needed. We plan to go to Philly for the 4th and definitely want to stay here again, working on reservations now! Thanks to the staff for creating a warm and inviting experience.

"Really nice experience"
From the moment I called the hotel to get exact directions to their location to the time I checked out, I experienced nothing but courtesy and pleasantness. The room was amazing and their restaurant and bar are stellar. I will definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming hotel with friendly stuff."
This hotel was close to all the historic sights we planned to visit and they had a parking lot with discount rate (many hotels don't have a lot or charge upward $50 a day). They let us checked in at 10:30 and gave us a better room with fireplace. Super friendly staff. We wanted to have a hot tea and they prepared two cups of them no questions asked […] at late night. The breakfast buffet is meh but there are so many good restaurants near by. Over all we were very please and would recommend and be happy to return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location with lots of charm"
We stayed for one night. It's right next to the highway in Old City, but you don't hear any traffic from inside. The parking lot right outside the hotel was a nice plus. We checked out at 10 and were able to leave our car there until we left the city around 1 (you could leave your car there until 3 without being charged extra). The hotel is conveniently […] located a block from Penn's Landing, the Franklin Fountain, and a few blocks from major tourist attractions. We walked to most of the places we wanted to go in the city. Don't be intimidated by the non-central location. It's easy to walk to places and there's a bus stop and train stop nearby. The staff was very pleasant and the breakfast was delicious. We definitely would recommend this hotel for those looking for a cozy B and B feel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Comfortable and Close"
The Penn's View Hotel is a boutique hotel and as such I expect quirkiness. It doesn't have all the amenities of your big chain hotels but it was charming, the staff was very helpful and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Each one is different. It is located in the Old City which makes it a few blocks away from some great restaurants and historic […] attractions. I would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Only downfall was the rooms smelled like a retirement home. Service was exceptional.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was very charming and beautiful. Bartender was so nice and showed us a map of city and where to go. Room was clean and comfortable. Steps from the Septa bus. Nice bars and restaurants in area. 5 blocks from the Liberty Bell and other historic buildings. Within walking distance from Reading Market. Will definately go back to same hotel with next […] visit.

"Great location, charming, friendly staff"
I would definitely recommend this hotel, for proximity to public transportation, wonderful local shops and dining, fabulous complimentary breakfast, and a very helpful staff.

"Great hotel!!! Would deff stay again!!"
Great hotel!!!!!! We got to the hotel 3 hours before check in and we were able to check in as soon as we got there. We went to our room and noticed we only had a queen bad and we booked a king bed. We went to the front desk and explained our issue to the woman there. She was very polite and looked up a few other room options for us. She gave us keys […] to two of the top of the line rooms and let us go look at them and decide what one we wanted to stay in. We decided on the room with the exposed wood beams on the ceiling. We went back down and told the woman at the front desk we wanted that room. She looked up the prices per night for it and told us we could upgrade for only a extra 30$ a night or have a room like our original but with a king bed for the same price. Needless to say for only $30 extra we upgraded. The room was AMAZING!!!!! It had an amazing view of the river, a fireplace, a king bed and a jaquizzi. The staff was very kind and helpful. We will deff. Be staying there again. Best hotel I have ever stayed at!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed there the night before the Philly marathon. They catered to this crowd, and even opened breakfast before 5 am so that we could eat. Much appreciated! Only flaw was that the restaurant "prix fixe" for the night before was not enough food: had to supplement.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and Lovely Hotel"
The hotel is located right on Market Street, which is close to great restaurants, public transportation and great shopping. The rooms were very clean and lovely. The staff was very sweet and accommadating. The one thing that was kind of a bummer was that the wireless internet was not working for me. (Could have just been my computer, but it still was […] unfortunate) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Charming hotel. Great location"
Penn's View Hotel was an excellent surprise. The old city charm mixed with the night life surrounding the hotel, was perfect for a relaxing and/or fun weekend. There are plenty of sights to see in this area. Our room, on the fifth floor overlooked the river and the Ben Franklin Bridge. It was beautiful at night. The highway is right there, but you don't […] hear the traffic unless you open the window. There is also a plethora of super cool and eclectic bars and restaurants within walking distance, and it's a very safe area. The market-Frankford subway line is also on the same block, so taking public transportation around the city is very simple. The room was gorgeous and homey with a fireplace, hard wood floors, nice furniture, and a clean bathroom (our room had a jucuzzi tub, which was awesome). All in all, this hotel has a lot to offer and I would recommend it to anyone: business person, couple, or family. Go stay at the Penn's View! You won't be disappointed.

"Great location, great staff, OK hotel"
It's in need of an overhaul to update the rooms. It felt like I was a kid again staying at my grandmothers house. Also, there is only one elevator that moves slow. If you want a modern hotel then go to one of the bigger brands. This is a great little spot if you want to spend the night in the city that is in a great location to go out and have dinner […] in old city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel To Enjoy Historic Philadelphia"
Within walking distance to at least a dozen historic locations, this is a very nice, clean, comfortable hotel with a friendly and attentive staff. Great value for the $$$. My wife and I will return again for our next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Penn's View is just lovely. It has a warm and inviting atmosphere and the staff is efficient and friendly. The breakfast was served in the dining area and was fresh and made to order. They do have a restaurant on site which we would venture to try on our next stay at Penn's View.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful old hotel in great location"
The location in Old City cannot be beat for convenience to restaurants, bars and historical sites. I was a little worried about noise since it is so close to I-95 and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, but it was not an issue at all. The staff was friendly and courteous. The breakfast was delicious and bountiful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly staff! Excellent location near site seeing and shops. Room was beautiful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine Classic Hotel"
Very comfortable hotel, close to Penns Landing, walking distance to downtown, and historic attractions. Great service, room was large, huge jacuzzi bathtub. Clean room and double paned windows kept the room quiet, even though the hotel is on a frontage road for I-95. Easy I-95 South access to airport one block away. Free breakfast was much larger and […] varied than the continental that was advertised. No hotel parking but relatively inexpensive lot next door gave discount for guests.

"Good hotel near Penns Landing"
I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The building and rooms had a lot of character, but the rooms and fixtures were in good shape and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I was in Philadelphia for a trade show at the convention center and the hotel was a pleasant 30 minute walk away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location for an overnight stay in Old City"
My fiance and I wanted to go away for the night and see the sights of Old City. We only live 20 minutes away in Delaware County, but to experience a full day and night in the city was amazing. When we walked into the hotel, we thought it was beautifully designed and the decor was right from the 1700's. Once we walked into the room, we both loved the […] way it was set up and decorated. One little detail that we loved was the fact the there were a few cut outs in the walls that you can see the red brick structure. That was a nice touch. We also very much enjoyed the jucuzzi tub in the bathroom after spending a few hours out in Old City. It was very romantic. We also enjoyed the breakfast that was included in our stay in the hotel dining room. Lastly, the price of the hotel stay was incredible for it's perfect location. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to spend the night in Old City Philadelphia. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
