We were in town for the Democratic Convention and I had the chance to pick hotels and we chose the Inn at Penn. We had a wonderful stay. The staff was right on they were attentive to our every need. The housekeeping crew was so nice to a whole group of late sleepers who were out all night. The bell... More

Great location, excellent staff. Great rooms, everything about this place is first class except at a good price. Not one thing wrong. Very impressive! If you need a place in Philly this is the place. Read all my reviews, I tear places apart but nothing bad to find here.

Marvelous stay at the Inn at Penn! Unquestionably great location if you have reason to be at Penn itself, but easy access to the city center as well. Walking to shopping and many restaurants, but the restaurant at the hotel is also a nice choice. Take a moment to enjoy a coffee in the living room. If you are a... More

This is a great hotel for a work convention. It was a five minute walk to the Wharton School and near a variety of good restaurants and bars. The room was comfortable and it was higher-quality than I'm used to.

We've stayed here several times and the service is always above and beyond, the hotel is very clean, and the rooms are spacious. In the summer you certainly get the best pricing at this hotel as opposed to rooms in the downtown area. Therefore depending on the purpose of your visit, this is a great hotel to consider for a...

The hotel was off a side street, very quiet, spotless and easily accessible. All staff were extremely professional and attentive. My room was very comfortable, the bedding was luxurious and internet access was easy and fast. I had recently stayed at the Sheraton University, where my room was very "tired" and in need of renovation, so I will definitely return... More

Hotel is Next door to U. Penn bookstore and Drexel University campus. Modern, clean, nicely decorated rooms and hotel facilities. Room has an iPad-like tablet that can be used to search for restaurant and local attractions. Free wifi for hotel guests and Hilton Honors members. My negative observation is that levators are slow to come by.

We love the area this property is located in. There are plenty of restaurant choices close by and the area is fairly clean for Philly. My husband and I are foodies and explored several restaurants within walking distance. It's great to be out with a younger crowd. Everyone was friendly, from the hotel staff to the people around town. I... More
