Coming to Philly for a 3 day business trip. The location is perfect for where I conducted the business. With complimentary breakfast and dinner, I could leave a couple of things off my schedule. It's a good choice for a reasonable price.

Rooms were beyond expectations. Complimentary dinner on weekdays was unexpected and the quality of the meal was excellent. Excellent for family as the kitchen was very nice with full size refrigerator. We were however not happy with the $39 cost per night for parking.

This hotel was in a great location, close to both UPenn and Drexel. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was hard to believe it was a Homewood Suites and not a higher end hotel. Clean and very modern. We loved our stay and look forward to returning in the future

For the price, the place is a poor choice if you need to stay more than a day. Unfortunately anyone who needs to stay close to University City in Philly has few choices. I was lucky to complete my personal business in a 1 night stay.

I stayed for 2 nights with my two teens. Location is great if you're visiting Penn.. Safe, clean. We had one bedroom with pullout sofa in l. room. L. room was like a tiny, dark, dark cave.No window, very minimal lighting.l Hotel is more interested in conserving energy than in guest comfort. "Energy efficient" lighting system -light switches are some... More

Good experience, happy there is affordable hotel in city other than Center City. University City has many restaurants and you have easy city transit to go into and around historic Philadelphia. There are many things to do and see.

Great hotel with nice pool and great rooms. Located near lots of restaurants and PENN's campus. Felt very safe the whole time. Good morning free breakfast buffet. We ended up with a two bedroom suite which was nice and quiet. I would go there again

First the good stuff: Two of us stayed for a week in July. It is a very conveniently located hotel for access to the UPenn campus; either a leisurely 15-20 minute stroll, or a mere 5 minute ride on the free hotel shuttle. All staff of this hotel, with the minor exception of 1 or 2 housekeeping personnel, were extremely... More

Stay was for two weeks, room wasn't cleaned on three or four occassions, no wash clothes for several days, bar of soap was only provided on first day of stay. Parking in the area of the hotel is horrendous and the hotel takes advantage of this by charging 40.00 for use of hotel parking. On some occasions we had to... More
