"Old world charm"
This is our 4th stay. Clean, efficient, nice breakfast. This end of market street really improving. Now there are several nice places to eat with a range of prices and ambiance. Hotel is within easy walk of historic sights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Older style well maintained building! Rooms are really nice for a weekend getaway. Nice area. Plenty to do during the day, and plenty of fun after dark within walking distance!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Romantic Spot (OK for Kids)"
Definitely a romantic spot (we had a king room with jet tub) and we had a great stay. A lot of character in this hotel, next time we'll sneak over without 2 yr old.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient, clean, and charming place in philly"
My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend to explore Philly. It was a great location, the hotel was cute and clean - for me a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom are a must for a hotel and Penns View had both! Breakfast was simple and convenient. We walked everywhere- the waterfront, all around old city, and down to south street, liberty bell, […] italian market and reading terminal market. one block from the septa station (market st line) and walkable to greyhound. neighborhood was safe and tons of bars, restaurants, clubs within blocks. Go to Amada for great Spanish tapas! Wonderful stay! Will absolutley make this my go to hotel in Philly! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classy hotel, great location, excellent staff"
Well above and beyond the chain hotels. Located in a 1800's warehouse, Penn's View has unique rooms, an excellent restaurant and a staff that goes above and beyond to help. It is located withing walking distance of both the waterfront and the historical district and is right next to the major bus lines and subway.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel has lots if character, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, and a nice continental breakfast!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel stay!"
What a gorgeous hotel! As soon as we opened the door, we felt like we were in a movie. All the amenities were available, but the whole experience was unique in that this was not the expected, fast-paced hotel experience! Each customer was warmly welcomed. The staff and service were wonderful and attentive. And we loved that the keys were real keys! […] Each room was decorated differently with a cozy, personalized decor. We opened up our room and straight ahead was a brick wall behind our bed. It was just beautiful! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great Hotel and location for visiting the Historical section of Philly. Great wine bar! You can get flights of wine from a selection of 125 wines! Good food nice rooms great staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint and Exemplary of Old City"
The old city style of the hotel was lovely. Our room was smaller than I expected, but that seems to be normal for hotels located in older buildings. Other than that, I loved it! The customer service was great, everyone was kind and accommodating. The hotel is located right off interstate 95 but I never heard any noise!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful stay at Penn's View Hotel. The location was perfect. Close to the Pier and all of the 2nd street restaurants and fun. It was only a couple blocks to visit the historic areas and easy walking. We felt safe and plenty of options of transportation if needed. The room was comfortable with a historic rustic feel. Very comfortable bed. […] The concierge was very friendly and helpful. The FREE continental breakfast was very tastefully done. Plenty to eat and a very romantic dining area. Everyone was friendly and very helpful in making our stay a good one. Like most places in the area they do charge a parking fee to stay. We took the train and subway to save a few bucks that way.

"Historic hotel close to Philly attractions!"
I always like to stay at this hotel when I am in the city. It's quaint, the staff is pleasant and accommodating. I love the jacuzzi tub! It's close to everything. It is a little expensive, but worth it!Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent boutique hotel in Philadelphia. Close to everything and a sweet place to stay that is a reprieve from the box hotels. I would stay again and highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was quiet. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good. The location was close to all of the historic sites and the subway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you enjoy a quant atmoshere nestled in the midst of historic PA then a great place to stay. If you don't prefer a very hard bed then this isn't the choice for you. Many had raved about the breakfast, but a waffle and fruit isn't that fantastic of a meal for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"1st time in Philly"
This weekend getaway was our first time in Philadelphia. I chose the hotel for it's charm and because of it's size. I was looking for something unique and we found it in Penn's View! The hotel is located in tge historic district and within a few blocks of all things history. There are many restaurants to choose from within walking diatance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Stay in Philly"
Excellent hotel with easy and ample parking, great rates, and great food! Its a smaller hotel but feels quaint and fancy. Easy access to everything(Market St., Liberty Hall, South St., all attractions). Great staff and a great stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We attended a concert in Camden and stayed here. Hotel is awesome. Great location. Parking is $23 for 24 hrs right next door. Hotel is close to Camden ferry, Penns Landings and all the restaurants on Market St. Room was a little on the small side but had everything we needed. We will be staying there again. Thank you Penns View!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"I'll stay again"
This was my third visit to Philly but the first time I'd stayed in this area. Initially worried about the prospect of noise from the busy roads when I arrived, it was actually extremely quiet. I'd also arrived early and the staff were very accommodating and let me check in early. I had a very comfortable room, scrupulously clean. The hotel was ideal […] for what I wanted, to wander around the Old City and to attend a concert at the Tin Angel (2 blocks away). You also get a generous breakfast. Recommended.

Our room had a private terrace which was nice. The bed was comfortable and the room was spotless. When they saw I was traveling with a child they have me a room with a pull-out couch. I would definitely stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Passing through...time matters, location does too"
This hotel is across from Penns Landing, with river view. The hotel restaurant is in Guinness book of records for most open bottles of wine. The restaurant is pricey but very good. If you head towards the mall, old town you will pass Campos, voted one of the best philly cheese steak sandwiches. My husband and I shared one, it was huge and very good. […] We then went on to hit the mall, to see the liberty bell and independence hall among several other historic items. Ended up at old city pub. This hotel is absolutely conveniently located within walking distance to all the historical sites, and manages to be near a number of restaurants. We didn't do anything at Penn's landing as we were only passing through and had only a single day. This hotel also serves breakfast, for a nice send off, easy to get back on the interstate. Off street parking is run by a different company and is pricey but next to the building and is convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel 1 block from the 2nd st. metro"
This is a great location and a great hotel, with fantastic service, clean rooms, and wonderful charm. Located one block from the 2nd street subway station, and only a couple blocks from Elfreth's Alley, it's firmly nestled in the old town. The staff were friendly, helpful, and eager to please. The rooms are not huge, but are immaculately clean and well-equipped. […] What you miss in size is made up for in character. The bar in the restaurant on the first floor had a knowledgeable bartender, a good selection of signature cocktails, and an amazing wine menu. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone in search of a reasonably priced Philadelphia hotel in a great location. Also, the soundproofing between the rooms is wonderful - I slept like a baby. It was truly a wonderful stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
stayed for one night. breakfast was very good. I arrived after midnight and hotel staff was very helpful. small room but really comfortable and perfect for me because I only needed a place to sleep and not hang out.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel for a Good Price"
My wife and I stayed 1 night over the 4th of July. The staff was friendly and professional (Antonio was very helpful and pleasant!). There were several choices within walking distance for food and drinks as well as Independence hall and The Liberty Bell were only a 10-15 minute walk. The staff all spoke English well, I do not like feeling like a foreigner […] in my own country so that was much appreciated! The only things that kept us from giving a "5" was that there was not a small refrigerator in the room and the bath tub was not as clean as it should have been. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and will return if we visit Philly again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just blocks away from Independence Hall."
This hotel was a very pleasant stay. It is on the National Historic Registry and is a very well-maintained hotel and perhaps one of the greatest continental breakfast we've experienced the last two weeks of our journey. Largest offering of fruit, pastries, eggs, breads, waffles, coffee and juices. Located only a few blocks from Independence Hall and […] is located in Olde Town. Staff is very friendly and helpful information. We will definitely stay here again in the Philadelphia area. We were able to celebrate the Fourth of July in Philadelphia - what a great experience.

"great old fashion hotel"
We had a great experience with this hotel. Location was great, staff also, free breakfast, can't beat the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
A friend and I stayed here just one night while visiting the city for a wedding. The location was very convenient to Old City. The hotel does not have free parking, though you can park in an adjacent lot. I'd recommend calling ahead to find out the cost, but the other lots nearby are about the same. The room we stayed in had lovely restored exposed […] brick and a neat window mural. We released that the window mural served a better view than what our real windows showed (a wall, oh well). The bed was a little soft, but comfortable enough. The bathroom is quirky and a little small, with not so great lighting. The shower was fine, but could stand to be updated. Check in was easy, check out was a little slow, but overall service was good. Cute place! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very historic and the location was perfect to tour old city from. The room was good. The only complaint is that there was quite a lot of hair left over on the sheets of the bedding. Made it look and feel like room service never changed the sheets.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and Elegant Hotel, Great Location"
The hotel is very clean and nicely decorated. The rooms are beautiful. We opted for a room with a jacuzzi tub which was great. The room had a fireplace (did not use as it was June) as well and the whole hotel was immaculately clean. We did not eat at the restaurant except for breakfast but the menu looked very good. The free breakfast was a nice touch. The […] bar at this hotel holds the Guiness World Record for most wines on tap! They have a lot of 'flights' where you can taste 5 different types of wine for the price of about 2 drinks, even a champagne flight. Very nice place to relax and the bartender/sommelier was very knowledgeable and friendly. Location is great too, you can walk to Penn's Landing and Old City very easily. Rittenhouse and Logan Square are walkable if you are up for some exercise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This Hotel was great. Great Location (Old City). I got to breakfast an hour late and there was still a bunch of food, plus the breakfast was great.
