Hotel's Favorite
I enjoyed the comfort and the amenities at The Inn at Penn. The room was spacious and comfortable. There was an ipad in the room that allowed one to place room service, obtain information, etc. The housekeeping staff was friendly, very caring and very helpful. The host at breakfast was really nice and professional. We left this hotel to check in to another hotel a few miles away to be closer to the second conference that I was attending and immediately regretted not staying at The Inn at Penn even though it's proximity to the conference was not as convenient as the second hotel.

We always stay here for World Cafe Live shows. It's generally a really easy walk, though this time we tried Lyft with the heavy rain and lightning. It's clean, doesn't have any heavy scents, friendly, comfortable & has valet parking.

I stayed at the Inn at Penn while attending a conference at the convention center. It was nice to come back to such a great hotel, staff, and room after a long day! I’d definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Philadelphia!

Got to hotel at around 9pm for conference the following day. There is no question that this hotel has the best location if you are visiting someone at Penn as this is basically right on campus. The hotel is relatively new and looks like a contemporary business-style hotel. It did fall short for me with the staff however. As a Diamond member with Hilton I was aware of my benefits. I checked in with a digital key on my phone and checked in at the reception desk when I arrived and asked about an upgrade. I was told that they were available for purchase but "Diamond members no longer get free upgrades". I understand that if rooms were not available but since they were, I was surprised at the change. He also made no mention about the free water or breakfast which are also supposed to be part of the Diamond benefit. I was too tired to debate with him and just went to my room to prepare for next day. The room was fine, had all the basics you'd expect plus an extra large flat screen TV with Direct TV. I could not find a clock in the room and assume that it was hooked up to the iPad which was supplied on a charger stand, but the iPad didn't work (got some error message about an update being needed when I lifted it off the stand). It's in a quiet area of campus and I'm not sure if any one room is better than another. Overall underwhelmed by the staff's lack of knowledge of Hilton's Honors program. Probably not my first choice in going back to the Philly area. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your comments. We apologize that the hotel did not perform to the high standards we set for ourselves and our guests. We have addressed your check-in issues with our Front Office Management to determine if staff retraining is needed and appreciate you bringing them to our attention. We hope that if your travels bring you through Philadelphia in the future, that you will allow us the opportunity to deliver an experience consistent with the standards for which were known.
