I was only in Philadelphia for an evening before travelling to Delaware in the morning. This hotel was located within a 15 minute drive from the airport and was close to the highway, which made for an easy drive out in the morning. The accommodations were very nice, clean and comfortable. While I did not use any of the hotel... More

A very good business hotel, right on University of Pennsylvania campus. A short walk to 30th Street Station (Amtrak), moderate taxi trip to airport. Plenty of interesting restaurants nearby. Stylish design, good public rooms (large "library" and other areas on the main floor to hang out and use the free wifi). One drawback -- nothing is open after 11 pm... More

I stayed here for a business trip. It was a perfect location to walk almost anywhere. Extremely clean, great fitness center. Hotel location next to lots of restaurants and shops. Very happy with stay in University City at the Inn at Penn. I was also allowed to check in at 8am after taking the red-eye that was the best!!!

The Inn at Penn was a fantastic hotel, worthy of its high rating on TA. They didn't have our reservation, but found it after 20 minutes. I had booked our room through Priceline at a great rate of $112, but it turns out our room was listed under another name. Not only were we given complimentary breakfast buffet vouchers (a... More

We recently enjoyed our stay during our trip with a group of rowers from Florida. Your decor is a beautiful Bogart Era design and very elegant but still modern. Well done. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. I especially want to bring attention to the staff from the attentive gentlemen working the valet parking, the lady concierge who was... More

The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Ipad is a very nice feature. We easily found street parking on Saturday night. This hotel was very good value comparing to other 4 star hotels in Philadelphia, and is only 5 minutes drive from Rittenhouse square.

The hotel is located very close to Penn so is quite convenient to campus and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the hotel is nice. The room was spacious for the area, clean, and fairly quiet (we asked to be away from street noise as much as possible).

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Penn. The location was great and we were able to walk just about everywhere. The Inn was well kept. The staff was very good and helpful. The workout room was small but nice and the equipment was up to date and in working condition. The valet staff was very helpful and attentive.
