We had the pleasure of staying at the hotel for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Definitely a European flair. The staff was extremely attentive and the front desk manager Antonio couldn't do enough for us. The hotel's bar is "Il Bar," known for it's wine selections (120 by the glass) and it's restaurant, Panorama, has some of the best Italian food in a city known for it's Italian food. We lived in the city for more than 20 years and know it well. The Continental breakfast (gratis) was tasty and fresh, my only complaint was that they didn't offer bagels (surprisingly). Another great "perk," fresh coffee in the lobby 24 hours a day. The rooms were clean, well maintained and cozy with inn style furniture. They have just started a boutique which is sure to be a hit with clothing, accessories and great gift ideas. We usually stay in upscale hotels with the prices to match. The Penn View is an upscale, boutique Inn/Hotel and we look forward to our next visit enthusiastically!
