We have stayed at this hotel a dozen times, and each visit gets better. Convenient to University City, and an easy taxi ride to Rittenhouse Square, the hotel is located at the edge of the UPenn campus. Large rooms, helpful and cordial staff, and a decent connected bar and restaurant

We stayed in June of 2013. We enjoyed being at the University of PA campus.
The rooms was nice and the staff very friendly and helpful.
We ate at Cosi cafe for breakfast since it had an outdoor sitting area.

Inn at Penn Hilton is a beautiful hotel, very clean and staff was very attentive. It was close to the Hospital of The University of Pennsylvania. Also close to the University of Pennsylvania. I will stay at this hotel again if we need to go back

We were staying in Philly for just 1 night, and after reading multiple reviews on here for so many hotels, I booked this one. I made the right choice. We took the eat, sleep, and park deal, which included the breakfast ($20 value pp) and parking ($39 value). The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and clean. The room was picture-perfect and had a very comfortable bed, and the bathroom was super-clean. We loved the decor as well - gave us decorating ideas for home! The breakfast was pretty decent, though not superlative; the made-to-order omelets was a nice perk, and there was a variety of cereals, breads, etc. We found that the hotel was a short jaunt from Insomnia Cookies. Head over there too!! Nothing beats a warm cookie topped with ice cream at 11pm :)

This hotel is all about location. Within walking distance of Penn and CHOP.The rooms have been updated and are clean and quiet. There is a library for cocktails but not on Sunday evenings. Cab service is immediately available outside of the building and the best bet if traveling to the medical center.

I was here for a 4-day training with Wharton Executive Education. Arriving at 11pm after a 20+ hour trip all the way from Singapore, I was warmly ushered in by everyone from the bell staff to the front desk staff. The light-hearted welome in the middle of night gave me that extra boost of energy to actually get me to my room in a good mood despite facing a 7:30am start the following day.

The room was beautifully furnished with a reading chair, proper work station, an iHome dock and iPad. Wi-Fi was complimentary and was available throughout the whole hotel. It has an Italian restaurant called Penne at the Lower Ground floor with an adequate bar. On another entrance, you can find the Penn Bookstore (for UPenn memorabilia and 2 floors of books) to your right and a nice Asian fusion gastrobar called Pod to your left. It is also a short walk from stores like CVS Pharmacy and LOFT (in case, like me, you under-packed and need to top up on reasonably-decent 'business casual' wear.)

Cabs are easy to get for a trip to the city or back to the airport.
Very happy with this accommodation

We had a great stay at this Hilton property and the staff was excellent at the concierge desk.
The lady at the concierge desk saved us 54$ for the big bus tour when recommending us to take a public bus just up the street which takes you directly to the city center (it is a 20 minutes drive). The rooms are well maintained and beautiful, but housekeeping could have done a little better job. As we checked in the lady was not very welcoming, but later the front desk manager was very helpful, polite and recommended a great restaurant for dinner. In every room they have I-pads which are really helpful and a great idea. All in all we had a great stay in Philadelphia!
