I cannot say enough good things about my stay! It far surpassed my expectations. It was clean, cozy, in a great location and at a great price. The staff was overly helpful. I had extreme difficulty catching a cab and the manager came out in the rain to help me. After such a terrible morning and being late for my... More

Stayed one night while visiting my Temple student son. What a lovely and affordable option in the city! I also recommend for those visiting the city sights as all the downtown hotels are outrageously expensive. It is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. I am a sucker for traditional decor and the room was charming. Coffee and cookies in the lobby... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in Oct. 2014. We chose this hotel over the downtown hotels where his conference was held because it was about $100-$150 less per night. With a parking place reserved (call ahead for this as they only have 10 spaces and 22 rooms!) We were given a hang-tag permit so... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Conwell. It is, as others have said, right on campus at Temple university. Our primary reason for going to Philly was to visit the historic old city and it was very convenient for that. We used only public transportation so parking wasn't an issue. The Septa train takes you right there from the airport.... More

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.

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...
