I stayed here Jan. 2015 a last minute booking due to some issues with my accommodation arrangements in Philadelphia. The rooms are all suites and pleasantly decorated. Beds comfortable. Bathrooms functional, poor lighting however, and no bathtub. TV large and many channel choices, internet was free (for me (Hilton diamond), not sure if it is free for all travelers) and... More

We always prefer Homewood Suites or properties that are suites rather than just rooms. This particular Homewood Suites was super clean and very comfortable. Most of all for us, having lived in Philly for a long time and back for a stay for several days over NYE holiday, it was very convenient. While the hotel only offers valet parking, we... More

I found myself at the hotel by default while traveling back to my home in San Miguel de Allende Mexico. I was finding it impossible to fly out on my reservation because when I got to US Airways, they informed me for the first time,having spoken to them about baggage fees many times, that they had an embargo and I...

This Homewood Suites looks brand new. The rooms are well designed and some feature "control" tablets -- tablets that let you manage the lights, temperature and other room features from a tablet device. The lobby, located on the third floor, is large and inviting. The staff, from the valet parking attendants to the desk and housekeeping workers are all friendly... More

When I arrived in Philadelphia I called for a shuttle pick up, didn't have to wait long. The shuttle driver was very helpful, he took me where I needed to check in because I had never been to the hotel before. Ashley at the front desk was very friendly. I had an issue with getting the heat to work in... More

We spent Christmas Eve at the hotel as our granddaughter was in CHOPS. We ate dinner their that night and the food was good and hot. The wine took off what we were dealing with. The staff was very nice and helpful. Their shuttle service was very efficient and took us to CHOPS and to Church on Christmas Day. There... More

The staff at this Homewood Suites in Philly was exceptional. The staff ALL appeared to really enjoy their work. As a result the service was outstanding. The Breakfast (and dinner, Mon-Thur) was better than expected. I travel a lot for work all around the country but this outing was with the family and I'm glad it was. I HIGHLY recommend... More

Not luxurious but very clean, better quality of furnishings and bedding than we expected from the photos - great service and very well located in the university district and close to Children's Hospital and University Hospital. We loved our stay and felt it offered great value, esp the free dinner/breakfast (quality also better than expected, but cafeteria not restaurant level).... More

Huge suite. Contemporary and very comfortable. My only regret is we were only there for one night!! Conveniently located to most attractions/venues (We were there for a concert at the Tower theater in Upper Darby)

Brilliant hotel, located right on the UPenn campus with lots of restaurants (formal and casual) within a 10 minute walk. The also hotel serves breakfast daily and dinner four times week. The lobby is contemporary however it is also feels cosy with fireplaces and lots of places to sit. The rooms are large and sparkling clean. And of course the... More
