Before arriving at Penn's View (by shuttle), we dropped people off at several large, Center City hotels, all very predictable. How nice to arrive at this small-ish, nicely decorated haven next to the Delaware river, where our room on the 5th floor had a fireplace, a jacuzzi, and plenty of quiet comfort. Be advised that Penn's View is also situated next to I-95, but the double-paned windows and thick walls make you forget that unfortunate proximity. The staff is attentive and obliging, the restaurant is deliciously indulgent, and the speciality cocktails definitely worth sampling. Location: easy walking distance to all kinds of restaurants & to the wonderful SEPTA buses at 5th & Market (easy ride to museums), which is also the hub for Independence Park. We will definitely stay here again next time we come to Philly.
