This place is great. They've thought of everything to make hotel living easy. Location couldn't be better. Very close to grocery store and restaurants. Breakfast at Homewood is something to look forward to.

The hotel common areas and room were exceptionally clean and well maintained. The hotel is walking distance to U Penn and a quick drive to downtown. The suite was comfortable and spacious. Be aware that parking in around the hotel is mostly a matter of finding a non-metered spot until Sunday, when no meters are active.

We had a fabulous stay at this hotel. We were greeted by friendly staff members. Great location because only a few blocks from my son's dorm at UPenn. Reasonably priced. Comfortable bed and complimentary breakfast was good.

Everything about this place was phenomenal. From the man who greeted our car, to the front desk person at check in, to every staff member we encountered, it was evident that they place great emphasis on training and customer service. Every individual was friendly and helpful. The building and rooms were spotless and comfortable, and very roomy. I was really...

This hotel is a great place to stay. It's clean, the staff is wonderful and the rooms are suite style with full kitchens and separated bedrooms. It's also located right on campus so you can walk everywhere.

Room was clean, but the Windows do not open, and the living room/kitchen area has no window and is completely dark. My son slept on the sofa bed in the living room area and found it unbearable as there is extremely poor ventilation. We were meant to stay two nights but left after only one night.

The Homewood Suites University City property in Philadelphia is by most measures terrible. But, because I do not wish to be unduly harsh I have rated it "Poor." The climate control was broken and required three visits by staff to get it to operate. The bathroom light conrols required staff intervention as did the damn alarm! The free breakfast... well,...

Most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. Room was surprisingly huge and comfortable too. One and only complaint is that the shower only had hot water. Fitness center was one of the prettiest, most spacious ones I've ever used. Wish I could have stayed more than one night - will definitely be back when I am in the area again!...
