Nice Hotel but a little overpriced for a hotel that does not include breakfast or parking. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean. Convenient location, near UPenn and Drexel so there are several food options around and in the hotel

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry that you didn't find value in your recent stay. Our Park & Stay package includes valet parking at a reduced rate, and we'll be offering a rate that includes breakfast (again, at a reduced cost) once we reintroduce our breakfast buffet option in early 2022. We hope to see you again for another stay sometime soon!

Hotel's Favourite
My family had a great experience here. Our son had surgery at CHOP and this hotel was very close to hospital. We checked in the day before and made a day out of Philly. There was plenty of things close by. We got some cheesesteaks from Abners and visited the Zoo. The hotel staff were so accommodating. They allowed us to check in early and also late check out to better coordinate with my son's surgery. There are ipads in the room to request food and any ammenities that you need. I found the housestaff to be very responsive to our needs and we were grateful. We stayed in the Junior King Suite and it was very well maintained in clean. All in all, very happy with our stay.

My sister-in-law was airlifted to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. Other hotels were going to charge up to $500 for one night! I call ed Inn at Penn and they went out of the way to make the nights stay affordable. I would stay here again at full price. Wonderful management. Great hotel stay.
