I have had an amazing experience! My time was spent at the Reimagine Education conference where I was presenting a board game. The food was delicious and service was good. Nice to be served by Nate and Butch too.

Wonderful hotel with incredible service. They really are concerned with making your stay great. I have been checked on several times. Also, the modern lighting system and tablet in room is nice. Located close to Wharton, easily walkable. I would recommend this hotel.

worth the money charged, within reach many places, clean, cozy and nice place for outing, it will be definitely a place for my next stay in this city, only issue, they charge too much for parking. I wish they have better way of addressing parking cost.

Room was standard and comfortable and quiet. Coffee pot and bottled water in room and refrigerator. The meeting room was average with good temp control. A high point was the group dinne, Chinese dim sum. There were excellent dumplings, crab cakes, and chicken skewers.

We love the staff who cook and serve breakfast. Raynaldo is our favorite but we still love the whole team. These folks get us going in a proper way each day and our long days are bearable because of this team.

Couldn't believe the value for money of this little gem on Penn's campus. If you need to go to the University, I am not sure there is any reason to stay anywhere else. Service, selection, and accommodations were all great too.

It takes a lot to get an excellent out of me. This hotel comes close. Everything went well. The hotel is quite nice, the room very clean and comfortable.

This is not only a lovely and comfortable hotel, but it is also staffed with extraordinary, helpful and professional people. The most wonderful young man working at the welcoming entrance hailed a cab for me. The driver said to him that, due to the Philadelphia Marathon roadblocks, he was not sure that he could get to my destination (Jefferson Hospital...
