HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 September 2016

My wife and I were extremely dissatisfied with your breakfast. The food did not look anything like what was represented in the photos displayed in the elevators. I've had better experiences at other major chain hotels offering free breakfast. Yogurt was offered bulk, in a large bowl instead of offering singe serve cups. Even if the philosophy was to be...

I attended a conference at the University of Pennsylvania and spent 3 nights ta this hotel. It was my first stay at a Homewood suites. I was very impressed. it is certainly very convenient for access to the University campus. I was so impressed, that I booked the following week at a Homewood Suites in Nashville.

Rooms very spacious, excellent breakfast and evening social staff and food. Very poor service from housekeeping staff even after reporting issues several times could not get service. Basically did not recognize honors status!

Perfect location for anyone needing quick access to University of Pa Hospital buildings. Very efficient shuttle service. Parking at the hotel is expensive, so if you plan on medical appointments at U of P, part at the hospital overnight and call the shuttle to take you to the hotel. Fast service and overnight cost for parking for patients and seniors...

The hotel was a little worn down, but overall clean. The breakfast was included and was ok. They had a van with free local transportation which was a great benefit in a busy town with expensive taxis. The van/minibus had a very nice driver and was really clean. The rooms were clean.

Convenient location to Penn medicine, reasonable price, complimentary food and wine, helpful staff and a hotel shuttle with an entertaining driver (Wayne) to take me back and forth to the hospital. Couldn't be better.

Stayed at this hotel for two day and two nights in February. It was recommended because of its proximity to Penn / Drexel campus, but it is NOT a business class hotel. I would not stay here again, and recommend most any other nearby hotel above this one. Poorly designed rooms, limited service. Rooms are two mini-room suites, and the...

I visited for a short 2 night stay and really enjoyed my time. I was surprised just how walkable the city was from this location and it is super close to the UPenn Campus. The front desk was immensely helpful especially when the delivery driver for my dinner lost his way. The woman at the front desk was very kind...

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the course of the past few years because of its convenience to the Penn campus. I have to say that this visit was really not satisfactory. The room has a musty smell. More importantly though, it takes 3 or 4 calls to the front desk to get anything - electrician because...
