Nice stay
Reviewed 6 days ago

Convenient and most pleasant stay. Everything was smoothe. Stayed on points which was escalated prob due to graduation weekend-only lesser point of stay. Staff is great. hotel up to date and clean. Full restaurant wasn't re-opened yet but breakfast was great and Hilton Honors appropriately recognized.

Close to Penn U, Penn Medicine, and Great Food!

My mother was checked into Penn Medicine unexpectedly Thanksgiving 2017 so I wanted to spend the holiday with her and needed a nearby hotel ASAP. I picked The Inn at Penn given it's proximity. I am so happy we chose it! The hotel is a short walk from the hospital, but has the bonus of being nearby Penn U, having a lot of fun and exciting restaurants, and being gorgeous. The staff were very nice and even upgraded me to the President's suite, which was so helpful as I brought our Thanksgiving meal with me. I travel extensively for work and can safely say this is my favorite hotel!

Outstanding customer service with a smile...

This weekend we stayed at The Inn at Penn for the first time.

The entire time we were there everyone from the Valet, to the front desk, to the bell captain, to the housekeeping staff all went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and appreciated. This was no easy task since the hotel was at capacity for the Penn graduation commencement this weekend.

The valet parking experience was very easy, though expensive in my opinion at $43.00/day. By comparison, The Beverly Hilton only charges $42.00 for valet service and that's in Beverly Hills.

The check in process was a piece of cake. The front desk staff greeted me with a smile, thanked me for being a Diamond Member with Hilton and made sure that I had every question answered before I went up to my room.

The hotel was exceptionally clean, including the lobbies, hallways and rooms themselves. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the rooms were very quiet, even with the hotel being at full capacity.

Breakfast in the University Club was very good. I was surprised to find that they had green smoothie shots available along with smoked salmon on the continental breakfast menu. The green smoothie shots were outstanding and I wish I could have taken some home with me!

We're looking forward to staying in the Inn at Penn on our next trip to Philadelphia.

Pleasantly surprised

Didn’t know this is on the Penn state campus. If we ever make it back to Philadelphia, will book again. Very helpful staff, transportation was easy to get too. A couple places to eat within walking distance.

Some Good...Some Areas Need Improvement
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

When you arrive, you have to go up a level to get to the main lobby which, out of the box, is a bit of a hassle to walk to an entirely different set of stairs/elevators. That aside, the desk staff were friendly and helpful. The Living Room which was the evening bar area and the gentleman, Leon, was terrific. Problem was, they close it off a couple of nights during the week for private events. Really? Perhaps a meeting room would be more appropriate so the hundreds of other guests may take advantage of the only available service area since their only other dining area for evening is under renovation.

Their breakfast area is good but not great; somewhat overpriced though staff again very friendly. Why not serve all day long here in the interim? Room service is offered though must be ordered through in-room ipads which needed to be reset daily so they would work to see the menu.

Lastly, the room. While I understand the cost of the room is due to location, better amenities could be provided as others have commented, Better lighting throughout, more than one robe in a two-bed room (or don't bother), etc.

Ah, and the $50/day they "hold" against your card...just in case, and $43/day to park. While it was okay and the staff was friendly, and though I am an Honors member, most likely would not be my first place to stay next time because of the other limitations.
