    Great but….

    Everything was great except Resturant/Bar hours were not convenient. Never open when we wanted to go.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Roof. Bed. Shower. Arrogance is free.

    The city is disgusting and the people are condescending and arrogant. The hotel was pretentiously designed to appear as a mixture of a library mixed with a museum. As if were staying in the house of some wealthy charlatan who wants to create the impression of sophistication so they can feel superior to people around them. The rooms were simple comparatively. Standard 3 -4 star feel. The restaurant was not open the specific night we were there, which was awkward and for the most part the place was a ghost town. But it was close to our location and a bed is a bed.

    We will definitely stay again when visiting the ar

    Perfect location for a visit to Penn Medicine. Accommodations were nice and clean and the staff friendly and responsive. A small fridge and/or coffee maker would have been convenient but certainly not a deal breaker.

    Poor Service

    The facilities are very nice and clean and well located near UPenn and Drexel Universities. However, there are no ice machines in the hotel and no fridges in the rooms. You physically need to go down to the restaurant to get ice as they will not bring anything to your room as they are severely short-staffed. It also took 40 minutes to get my car from the valet.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    We were a little surprised and disappointed that there were no vending machines in the building and no ice machine on the floor. The shower was a little odd in that one had to get into the shower before turning on and regulating the water temperature because of the way the shower doors are configured.

    Clean but loud

    Clean and comfortable rooms; however, the noise level was terrible. The walls in the room were paper-thin and multiple times at night the noise from the room next door woke me up.
