From the reception area to the rooms themselves, this hotel is very grand and luxurious. However the surrounding area (outside of UPenn) is a little sketchy. If you can swallow paying the exorbitant price, the experience is wonderful. The staff was friendly enough, and the restaurants were delicious. Possibly the best meal i have ever had at a restaurant hotel. The rooms weren't super spacious, but were nicely arranged and decorated. The room had been renovated recently so it was clean and aesthetically pleasing. The beds were average, and noise from the hallway was minimal. We will stay here again!
