5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was spacious, cleanand comfortable, with a settee, dresser and a work table. Bathroom was a good size as well. The bed was comfortable, and wifi stable. There was an iPad provided, but it was old and not very responsive. Location is right on campus at UPenn. It is pricey though. Wide variety of food for breakfast - quality of... More

Good place to stay especially if you want to be on the campus of University of Pennsylvania which is a great place to spend time. Make sure you visit museums and art gallery on campus along with buildings of architectural significance and Hamilton Walk.

We stayed one night at this hotel while in town for a medical appointment. The hotel is right on campus. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance. Staff was genuinely friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern and comfortable. The sink while stylish is not very practical. There isn't any counter space. Overnight parking is allowed on the metered... More

We stayed here while visiting University of Pennsylvania. It was definitely walking distance. The hotel was very nice, newish, very comfortable. My son thought this was the best of the hotels we stayed in on this trip. It also included a decent buffet breakfast. Not inexpensive but worth the price.

This is a very nice hotel. It is a little confusing with the two lobbies on the lower level, and the check-in up one level. All the staff were very helpful and efficient. We did the "digital key" on my phone for the first time here. Very sweet and smooth going right to the room. The only problem was that... More

Very clean, great vibe, staff was very helpful. It seems like they have a lot of conferences there. The location is perfect. It was next to the Penn Campus. There are a few restaurants around which is great. Valet parking is from the back. They usually park your car right on the street. Overall, great place.

My business travel frequently takes me to Philadelphia; my favorite hotel there is the Inn at Penn. The accommodations are consistently top notch. Recently while staying there I returned ill from lunch. Bessie Greene, executive Concierge, reached out to me and accompanied me safely to my room providing me essential concern and ginger ale. She stepped out of her role... More

I stayed here because my husband had a procedure at HUP. The first night he was hospitalized, I stayed in his room. The next morning I called this hotel for an accommodation for that night. They let me check in early when I told them I had little sleep the night before. Room was very comfortable. Staff very nice. It... More

The hotel itself is nice, even though the bar was closed due to construction. The expensive fruit I ordered for breakfast ($12) tasted like onion (I assume the knife was not cleaned after onions were cut) and the coffee ($6) was not drinkable. Worst start in the day.
