I like this hotel. Small, friendly, nice and well equipped rooms. Free coffee, tea, some fruits and cookies in the lobby corner. Located in campus so a bit loudy enviroment but it didn't bother me much. Well located close to trains and metro.

Stayed here, with 7 other people, during Made in America festival weekend (Labor Day Weekend). Location: - About 5 train stops away from City Hall - not too far, but not walking distance - Right at the start of Temple University Campus - great if you want an American college experience (Oh sorry, my friends and I are British/Scottish) Food:...

Our first night of our 10-day trip to the US North-East was spent at this quaint, cozy, and spacious hotel on the grounds of Temple College. Conveniently situated just beyond the main downtown area of Philadelphia, it is easy to reach many of Philadelphia's historical attractions. It was a disappointment to learn that breakfast had recently been discontinued, but that... More

Greetings Aussie, We love, love, LOVE being a part of Temple University's campus, and wouldn't give up our location for the world. Not many collegiate hotels have the privilege of being RIGHT in the heart of campus, so we consider ourselves quite lucky! Thanks for using the terms cozy AND spacious. We worry sometimes that people confuse quaint with small,... More

the Conwell Inn is the place to stay. It's right on campus, which makes it out of the way for much of Philadelphia, but hugely convenient if you're visiting the school. (I can understand having trouble finding it - we asked a Temple security officer on Broad Street.) We had a large, lovely room on the 3rd floor that looked... More

Greetings Lisa, First off, sorry if you had some trouble finding us, as we are tucked into campus and somewhat hard to find via Broad Street. We're working on getting that remedied with new signage! Also, my apologies if you felt we were a bit off the beaten path - many of our guests love that with the subway only... More

FIRST OFF - we were not there to visit TEMPLE UNIVERSITY. We were there for PHILLY's FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION! I couldn't have been more disappointed with this experience. For starters, we couldn't find it! After driving around for 15 minutes, we called and the desk staff gave horrible directions as to how to find it. After arriving, we find... More

Greetings, My deepest apologies if we failed to meet your expectations while you were in Philadelphia. 50% of our guests visit the hotel solely to visit Philadelphia (including 100% over Fourth of July, as the University is closed), and very few had the problems or concerns that you did. I apologize that we were sold out of parking, but we... More

A one week stay in the city for a convention, means an expensive downtown hotel or staying way out and driving in. No, wait. This beautiful little gem is on the Temple University campus, just a 2-3 minute walk to the orange line subway station that takes you directly, four stops to the convention center, one more stop gets you...

Stayed here on a business trip when I had a workshop on campus at Temple University. There's a real paucity of hotel choices in the area, so I chose to stay here mostly out of necessity. The hotel is located right in the heart of the campus, which has some plus sides (close to my business needs, a good deal... More

The hotel was clean and the front desk staff were all very friendly. The cookies in the lobby were nice. I also used the business center, and it was good. The hotel was very convenient to public transportation. The only complaint I had was that the wi-fi service was spotty at best.

I checked in around 12:15 AM on a recent visit to Temple University for business. My brief interactions with the staff were helpful, informative, and friendly. The bed was very large and comfortable. The lack of a breakfast and few amenities will perhaps keep me from returning in the future although my visit was positive. If I return to Philadelphia... More
