We were told to stay at 4 Seasons when visiting Univ of Penn and am I glad we did not.

The beds were really great and the shower, closet space and general comfort top notch. My... More

I attended a conference at the Hilton Inn at Penn. The service was excellent and the room was very comfortable. I enjoyed being right next to the campus and experiencing the surrounding university/student life. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. I hope to return with my family to explore the city.

Everyone we encountered at this hotel was very friendly and helpful. We had a great experience and definitely hope to return. The location is perfect for Penn visitors, and public transit is very close by if you want to go to other parts of Philly.
