The location, view at the room and TVs were nice size. Oversized tub was great for my 6’2 frame.
Wish we could of gotten the room I requested.
super comfortable bed! great city views!!
staff could have been more friendly and responsive
It is very well kept. Very good location. Accesible from any direction.
Extractors in the kitchens did not worked well. You could smell cooking from other apartments sometimes.
If you need to be near the train station or the University of Pennsylvania, this hotel is perfectly located. It's more a set of apartments than a full-service hotel. There's no restaurant and the staff is bare bones, but the room itself was amazing. Full kitchen, washer-dryer, nice bathroom (no bathtub), and an amazing view. The room was pretty quiet though I could hear my neighbor's television when I was in the living room. The fitness center was lovely, with a gorgeous view.
