We had a great stay at Penn's View Landing. The staff, room and breakfast met all our expectations. The Italian restaurant in the lobby was outstanding and the parking lot next door simplified everything.

Nice location for old city attractions. Convenient parking right next door. Our room was towards the back so it was quiet. Bathroom was nice but awkward location and on the small side. A fan would be a nice addition. Beds were comfortable. Small but nice fitness room on the 3rd floor. There was coffee available in the lobby but it... More

We held our small conference at Penn's View and were very pleased with the choice. Toni Montano was a wonderful help getting everything set up for us, and everyone there was very accommodating and helpful, making what is usually a headache into a pleasure. Our members loved their rooms, many of which had fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs, and all of... More

I was in the city just for the night. The hotel was perfect. Nice rooms and comfortable bed. Cute bathroom in a room for one. There's an elevator and it has a great view of the river. It has a public parking lot right next door, it's $26 for overnight, which is a little pricey but parking in that area... More

Don't let the location put you off - at first sighting, this lovely hotel appears really badly positioned next to a busy overpass and an even busier freeway, but once you set foot inside, it is into a surprisingly quiet oasis! Our room was at the side on the 3rd floor, with a view of the car park and nearby... More
