My other hotel choices in the area were not available and one of the nearby hotels recommended this place to me. I was pleasantly surprised and realized it provided all that I needed -- comfortably and at a reasonable price! Would stay again!

Was here for 9 nights. The room is the typical Homewood Suites with some "green" upgrades including lighting and AC that are controlled by a system that requires your key to be in a slot to turn on lights and allow your to override the default AC setting. Was told by their maintenance guy that they would be providing tablets... More

This hotel is located very near the Penn campus. It is clean and the suites are large and a continental breakfast is included in the price. Our only complaint is that they would not let us have the room until exactly 3:00pm. That was check in time, but they said none of the rooms were ready early. Then, at exactly... More

We were staying there because our granddaughter was having an operation at the Children's Hospital. There was no room at the Ronald McDonald House but they gave us a coupon for a discounted rate at the hotel. The hotel was less then enthusiastic about giving up one of there rooms for this lower rate. We had to have the Ronald... More

I usually look for Homewoods being a diamond member, but this one struck out. The hotel is located on the border of UC so my window view was of the sketchy neighborhood out back. You actually have to use room key to get to your floor they probably had or expected problems being in this location. We walked into our... More

OK, so I decided to do something different and instead of paying a fortune in parking I parked outside the city and took a cab to the hotel and the saw the city taking the subway and some taxi services. That was a bit of a pain but saved some money and was given door to door service on several... More

I stay at this hotel about once a month. Nice place, nice people but the rooms are gross. They don't really vacuum, so when you check in you find other people's hair, leftover popcorn, candy, and whatever else happened to fall on the floor. I have also found dirty wash clothes left in the shower and used q-tips on the... More

The beds are sooooooo comfortable! I travel a lot and have stayed in many different hotels. Yet, this is my favorite one. It's a suite, so you have kitchen, living room and pull-out sofa.... very roomy. I especially like the fact that they give discounts for AAA, AARP, Senior, Government, Military, travel agent.... which makes it affordable.

We stayed here in mid july on a brief 2 day 2 night stay and had a wonderful time. Staff were very courteous and friendly and recommended a thai restaurant 2 blocks away that was fantastic. Entire Hotel was clean and accommodating. Staff also assisted us in getting to the nearest subway station for the very easy 5 minute ride... More
