I always enjoy my stays here. The hotel is clean and modern and the service excellent. Very conveniently located for Penn parents. I only wish there were more parking options beyond valet, but overall great experience.

Nice place to stay. Close to enough to the airport and downtown. The staff was friendly and professional. The only downside is no vending for the late night thirst! The cafe on site closes at 10. If you come in after that and could not stop beforehand; You will be dry mouthed for the rest of the night. Also, no ice machince. Other than that, my stay was perfect. Really appreciated the valet parking. I felt safe when coming in late at night.

very clean. Only negative thing was we didn’t have small refrigerator in our room which was not expected but we didn’t read throughly before the booking so it was our fault.
