I love the location. But would rate it as average or below average overall. Half the time that I have stayed there, the nice meeting area, which looks like a living room, is tied up with private functions which means that you have to leave the hotel when you want to have casual meeting with friends. I find the food... More

Everyone on the staff from the check in person and bell man to the maids were friendly and very helpful. They bent over backwards to accommodate our every need with a smile! We were there only two and half days but they remembered us each time we left and came back.

This was a nice hotel. The service was good and the rooms were clean. There was a baby in the room next door, surprisingly, we only heard the baby a few times. The halls were immaculate and vacuumed most mornings, which meant no sleeping in after 8. Housekeeping was professional and discrete. If staying again in University City, I would... More

This hotel defines the class and comfort. The room was clean and the staff made me feel extremely welcome. Whether I was coming or going, I was always greeted with a sincere welcome. I would stay here again, if I had the choice.

I just wanted to give Alisa in guest reservations a BIG SHOUT OUT. I called in to reserve two rooms for my family and I during a hospital stay at University Hospital. Alisa was tremendously patient with me throughout the entire process. She eased my concerns and was very professional. She gets 5 stars with me.

Upsides: Closest, most upscale hotel for those with UPenn destinations, with easy public transit access to Center City. Downsides: Price (more for food than for rooms: room rates are reasonable for the quality of the hotel). Immediate neighborhood is rather dead after business hours. Bottom line: If you want a full-featured business hotel with some surprisingly homey touches for a... More

Thank you for the candid review of your recent stay. We do have a great location on the UPenn Campus, but within a close proximity to center city as well, with the train just a short walk away. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future. More

The Inn at Penn is not cheap -- especially since it is just a standard Hilton name. However, if you have personal or professional reasons to be close to the universities, this is an ideal location. Convenient to trains, planes, and automobiles, and, good if you want to just walk to your destination and back. The rooms are lovely. I... More

Fantastic hotel - very excited when I first saw the room, which was stunning. They have a great idea in using iPads in each room for hotel and area info - via which you can order new linens etc. from housekeeping (new pillows delivered within 15 minutes), room service, etc. The food in the restaurant was pricey, but delicious.

The Inn at Penn is the most comfortable and inviting hotel I have ever visited. I am a patient at Abramson Cancer Center. When I arrived on a cold, rainy night, a lovely man named Teddy helped me get my bags to my room. I was so weak from treatments, he had to help get me to my room as... More
