The iPad they have in room aren’t user friendly. Also, my dinner order was delivered later than quoted time and server who delivered it reeked of alcohol breath. I think she was the same server who took my order on phone. I was appalled.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel over the Black Friday weekend. The hotel staff was very attentive, the rooms were clean, and the hotel overall was well appointed. The very helpful staff, including the valets, made everything easy. We would definitely stay again.

Stayed for a week over thanksgiving as my son was unexpectedly in the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania. Had stayed there before, but was much quieter this time. The rooms are very comfortable, I like the clean modern but not cold aesthetic. Great location.

Where are the tourist attractions (i.e. liberty bell etc) in proximity to your hotel?
For perspective, Independence Hall is at 5th Street and we're at 36th Street. We're located on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. However, Philadelphia is easily navigable by taxi. Thank you for writing!

Do you have onsite parking & and what is your proximity to 30th Street train station thank you
Hi Lisa, The Inn At Penn offers valet service only. In addition, there are several parking garages within walking distance. These garages do not offer 24-hr in/out privileges, as they close at 11pm. Guests who opt to use one of the University City parking garages are welcome to leave belongings with our bell staff at our main entrance on Sansom Street and return for them once parking elsewhere. We are located six blocks from Amtrak 30th Street Station. Thank you for writing!
