The Homewood Suites by Hilton Philadelphia/University City is conveniently located, easy to find and to get in and out from. The hotel and staff provide a welcoming and comfortable environment for short of long stays. We have used this hotel a few times while visiting family in the Philadelphia and will be back.

The staff were always very helpful and kind. They went out of their way to speak to me and my daughter and make sure our stay was comfortable. Being away from home for an extended amount of time can be difficult but they made it as comfortable as possible and really made us feel welcome.

I stayed here with two small children to hit the museums in town. The room was small, but worked (it was a challenge to get enough space in the room for a crib with the pullout sofa and bed). I liked having the kitchen and door so my kids could nap in one room while I did not nap in... More

Really loved my stay there! Room was nice - good location - breakfast standard! Hotel Staff is extremely friendly! Thanks for the free upgrade. Only negative is the parking which costs 40 Dollars. However we parked in the street free. There is plenty of safe street parking around the hotel.

Some very minor issues aside - a small housekeeping hiccup among them, I had a marvelous, restorative stay at Homewood Suites University City. My room provided a [fantastically quiet] panoramic view of the Penn campus and the outlying area, while I found the hotel to be modern, comfortable and visually appealing. Excellent front desk staff. Not the greatest Homewood breakfast... More

Location of Hotel Stayed here 1 night for my son to visit Penn—hotel is a couple of blocks from edge of campus so very convenient location. Lots of nearby eateries, grocery store, CVS, etc. If flying into PHL, take the SEPTA Airport Line to 30th Street station. Hotel has a free shuttle that can pick you up. Just call them... More

We visited Philadelphia for my daughter's interview at Penn. We stayed here mostly because they offer a good discount for college visitors. We were so pleased with the hotel from start to finish. Everyone from start to finish was friendly and helpful. The room was an end room so we had views from the living room and bedroom. The room... More

I had to stay in town for a major work event. We chose this hotel because we liked the kitchen option as well as the suite. The hotel itself was clean, well appointed and comfortable. As I had to leave by 5 AM each day, I did not get to enjoy the breakfast, but I did enjoy having the option... More
