Did I mention great Wine? We stayed at the Penn View for the second time on June 30th while in town for a Philadelphia Union Soccer game. On our first visit, we made a late reservation and ended up in an interior room, which was okay, but pretty dark and ordinary. This time, we ended up with an upgraded upper floor room (room 408), and is was outstanding. Brick walls, a real city loft type feel with a full Jacuzzi bath and Balcony with a view overlooking the Delaware river, a Colonial Era alley way and a perfect view of the Steeple at Christ Church.
After the game and a night out traipsing about in Olde City, we made it back to the room a little late, but I was able to grab a glass of one of the hundreds of wine choices at the on site Wine Bar and spent an hour sitting on the small but serviceable balcony.
