I love this hotel
This is my go to hotel in Philly. It is lovely, the rooms are comfortable and large, the hallways are large, the service is good, the restaurant has good breakfast buffet. The only Need for improvement is a better bar selection.

Very Good8.0
Excellent Customer Service!
Amazing stay during the Penn Relays. Once we checked into the room, we discovered that the refrigerator wasn't working. Front desk sent an engineer up right away. We had been traveling all morning, and I'm nursing, so having access to a cold refrigerator was a high priority. When I explained this to Nicolas at the front desk he immediately apologized and graciously gave us a complimentary breakfast--delicious by the way! We got back to our from around 5pm and unfortunately the refrigerator was still not working and the engineer from earlier replaced it. Things happen...I'm just grateful this hotel knows true customer service! Checked out around 12pm but our train wasnt scheduled to depart until 6pm. I had asked if there was any way they could allow me to use a private area as a lactation room when we returned to pick up our luggage. They were funny looks, no attitude...all around pleasant and accomodating. Thank you for making my first trip away from my 6mos old doable. We've been coming to the Relays for 5 yrs now and I've definitely found my new hotel!

Great Location
The hotel is very nice. The reason we stayed in this hotel is it's proximity to Penn. It's very convenient and the breakfast was very good as well. I recommend this hotel.

Not Worth the Money
My room was not totally clean and was shabby. Things were not dusted in quite awhile. There was an odd odor in the bathroom. It may have been from the cleaning products they use. The staff was very friendly. Although the location is perfect, I don't plan on returning to this hotel.

Classy hotel on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. Great rooms and service, and the fitness center is nice too.
