5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here after a wedding in Manayunk (6 miles away). Even though it was a hoppin Saturday night, we were still able to find street parking (free after 8pm). The hotel charges $39/night for parking... Why not just include that in the cost per night for the room? It's also a block away from Septa if you are taking public transportation.
Everything was very clean. I loved the touch screen device in the room that controls all the lights, temperature, and music. Very cool. Nice view of the center city a few miles away. Hotel staff was very pleasant.
Breakfast was average, but still plenty of choices. It was complimentary, which I always try to look for in a hotel.
Would stay here again!

The staff at this location are by far the best I have encountered in my work travels. They go out of their way to ensure you have the best possible experience. Since it is no fun being away from home due to work, it is much appreciated to have hotel staff that do the best they can to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.

The most important thing to me about any hotel is cleanliness and this Homewood Suites was clean in all areas. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel or stay there again in a heartbeat! Also lovely views of Philly from upper rooms.

Very nice and safe hotel at Penn. Parking is valet only. You drop off your car at street level and then must use your room key to access the elevators to get to the hotel on the 3rd floor. Breakfast and dinner were included. Traffic was always congested in the area so walking maybe preferred.

We stayed at Homewood Suites in University City for three nights for our daughter's Upenn graduation. We were extremely pleased with the experience. The room was great-spacious and clean. The service was excellent. Not only was there free breakfast, but the dining room was open all day with free coffee and provided a nice place for us to sit as an extended family and eat takeout. This is a much better hotel than you would expect from a homewood suites. My only two minor complaints are-1. no in room safe; and 2. neighborhood is a little iffy. But for the purposes of visiting Penn, especially with a family, it simply cannot be beat!

We had origionally booked another hotel for a wedding but that hotel told us a month before the wedding that they where going to renovate and we could no longer stay there. We called the Homewood suites and they where supper helpful. They got us a block of 40 rooms to a good group rate only a month in advance, and the wedding was labor day weekend! The hotel was super fresh apart from some parts of the room looked like it could use some touch ups like a new coat of paint. Super comfortable beds, helpful staff and a quite good location. Would totally recommend this hotel.
