Great facilities, comfortable room, the Bell Boy was kind and helpful, and delicious breakfast. But you cannot expect too much at the reception. TC is not available, could not exchange into cash. No U.Penn campus map. I should have hard copied the campus map in advance.

The Inn at Penn is an outstanding hotel with great facilities and wonderful service. It is located right next to the University of Pennsylvania and is the perfect place to stay when visiting your college student. Great location for people interested in visiting University City; not bad for Center City (short cab ride). Not as convenient for historical Philadelphia.

A very cozy stay. Rooms were clean and modern. The turn down service was a nice touch. Staff was friendly. Location was close to 30th St Station so I could get in an out if need be, although it was a bit too cold to walk. The best part of the hotel is the room they call "The Living Room."... More

My wife and I read a couple of online reviews and found that this hotel met all of our needs. Little did we know that it would exceed them by such a wide margin. The staff are good people who respect their patrons with a genuine friendliness. The food was top-notch and priced just right. There isn't enough space to... More

The hotel is charming, rooms are unique to other Hilton hotels and the staff is extremely welcoming. I would stay here again, especially if you like the university setting. This is a nice change and close to downtown.

The vast majority of our stay was extremely pleasant. JULIE, especially, was FANTASTIC! Thank you so very much for making my booking experience quick, easy, and extremely satisfying. Julie was able to answer my questions and address my concerns. The purpose of our stay was to visit CHOP, which was nerve-wracking, but you made it a better and less stressful... More

The Inn at Penn is a lovely hotel close to the hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the college campus. It is spacious and comfortable. The library room with its two fireplaces is wonderful place to relax. The staff are accommodating and kind. Highly recommended.
