Our family visited Penn and stayed at The Inn at Penn. The location was excellent and the room was well appointed. We had a king with a pull out couch for our son. The hotel was very quiet. We also had plenty of room. The hotel is a great option for staying at the university.

The photos for this hotel just don't do it justice! I stayed here recently as I had a job interview at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The hotel was absolutely beautiful and the employees were fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay from start to finish...especially the free wifi!

We did not eat at the restaurant but enjoyed a some time at the bar a few nights. I forget the bartenders name, but he... More

Very convenient for anyone visiting the local Universities and the service is great. One particular standout is Bessie, the concierge. She always greats you with a smile and goes above and beyond to help you out!

It's right next to the Penn Bookstore and so close to many things. I went to ICA (institute of contemporary art). I got some grocery from wawa. The Japanese restaurant next door was also good. I enjoyed a nice breakfast at the Club room during my stay. And the bed was really comfy. I like the comforter and the pillows.

First room next to elevator had much noise from hall and elevator. Not helpful when I asked to be moved to a new room and the new "quiet" room they provided me with the second night had screaming children next door who woke me at 6:00 a.m. No offer to help me with my bag upon arrival or when going...

Dear Melissa A, Thank you for your comments. I’m sorry that you experienced noise during your stay with us. Unfortunately, there was no way that our staff would have known that there were young children occupying the room next door, as our guests do not always disclose that information. I hope that the third room you occupied during your two-night... More

Good hotel ideally located for access to the University and Wharton Business School. The rooms were comfortable with ample power outlets. The wifi was reasonable and free. I enjoyed the lounge area in this hotel and the bar man was excellent. We enjoyed an evening of conversation and some refreshment in a very comfortable setting. Overall a good hotel with... More

I have visited Philadelphia several times and always find the Hilton Inn at Penn to be a wonderful experience. The rooms have all been large and have some of the most comfortable beds that I have stayed at in the U.S. and Europe. It has a wonderful room on the first floor with a fireplace for reading or waiting! The... More

The newly renovated Inn exceded my expectations. I loved that they had a key holder that controlled the electronics i.e. light a/c etc. I was very impressed with the conservation of energy. The room was well maintained and the bathroom was gorgeous. The products in the bathroom were plentiful and of a high standard. The hotel public spaces were well... More
