HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I stayed while on a business trip at Drexel University. I found the staff very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. My room was very comfortable. I had a 10th floor room and there was no noise despite being in a busy area. The bed was very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Highly recommend Homewood Suites. We had a wonderful time while visiting our daughter who attends UPENN. The unit was stayed in was fabulous! The eat in kitchen, pull out sofa, and large bathroom was wonderful. The complimentary buffet breakfast was wonderful. We are looking forward to returning to Homewood Suites.

The Homewood Suites at University City was a very nice place to stay. We were visiting Philadelphia for a college tour and the central location of this hotel made it quite convenient. In addition, there are plenty of restaurants and stores nearby. We also found the staff to be quite accommodating.

The hotel is a modern, lovely property a short walk from Penn's campus. The staff is attentive, professional and genuinely interested in ensuring that the guest has an excellent experience. As a Hilton honors member I had a lovely corner one bedroom suite on a high floor. Breakfast and valet parking were included in the rate. The hotel also has...

Overall I was in a pretty good mood when I got there and after I checked in I didn't see anyone else which I really liked. Only saw the cleaning women in the morning who were really nice and respectful.

We chose this hotel since it was walking distance to the UPenn campus and we had a tour planned for our high school student. The location is very convenient, basically on the campus and close to restaurants and shops. Parking was convenient, but expensive. The hotel room was a bit pricey for a Homewood Suites, but I guess the location...

Nice hotel. We got the U Penn rate which makes it reasonable. Parking is extra. Staff was very helpful in getting to the hospital. They have a shuttle but it only runs 6 am to 9 pm. Cab fare to Penn Presb was $6. Room was a one BR suite, climate control worked nicely, bathroom sink was in a separate...

Checked in at 6:50 on a Thursday and was then told by the time we were done at 6:55 that there were 5 minutes left to the evening social. We hurried over and Megan took care of us, from ensuring we were well-fed (had our entire dinner there and did not need to order in) to having enough to drink...

Stained carpets and furniture, dried blood on the linens, did not stock the room with essentials the next day. Strong cigar smell in the room. Over worked staff. Very expensive room for having to track down clean bedding (that took two days to be replaced), having to be moved to a clean room with no body fluids (?) on the...
