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

We were in town for an all weekend track invitational at Widener University with teenagers. The area of the hotel was very convenient and had many amenities within walking distance which was preceived very well from the kids. The staff was very attentive and the room was very comfortable. Loved our Stay!

I stayed at this hotel for a conference and was there for 4 nights. The Homewood Suites are great for longer business travel - they feel like home - with a living room and a full kitchen. This hotel did not disappoint. The bed was VERY comfortable and it appeared pretty clean. I was a little disappointed that I had... More

My brother, my mother and I decided to book this hotel for its closeness to the University of Pennsylvania hospital, as we travelled to Philadelphia from Italy for a treatment at Penn. From the moment we arrived at the hotel, we were very much disappointed. First of all, the room was very dirty and there was a bad smell in... More

We are in Philadelphia 2-3 times per year to visit one if the hospitals. Although this hotel isn't the closest, it is the best in price, amenities, & meeting our needs. They have a shuttle that takes you to several different hospitals, free breakfast and dinner (M-F), indoor pool & jacuzzi, nice work out room, and a full kitchen in... More

Very clean and accomodating. The staff was very friendly and the room was superb. I enjoyed all aspects and was surprised how modern and Smart this hotel was. I was able to walk around and also enjoy unique dinner restaurants. It is a walkable location and given the universities in the area, very safe.

We were only there for an overnight medical-related trip, and didn't arrive until 10:00pm, so we didn't have time to enjoy any of the facilities. The staff was very courteous and friendly, and the bed was very comfortable. We did enjoy the complementary breakfast the next morning before we left.

My family and I had a fabulous stay at this hotel. The staff was fantastic, the room was perfect for the 4 of us, the free breakfast and dinner were better than expected, and we got great use out of the pool. It is also a great location for exploring the UPenn campus and surrounding stores and restaurants. We will... More

We reserved the one bedroom suite and it was the perfect size for our toddler to run around and feel like home. The kitchen had a full size fridge and stove top to cook, cabinets and a table, tv. and sofa bed in the living room. Bed was very comfortable and we all slept very well. Checkin was quick and...
