From the moment we walked into the hotel, we were blown away by not only the beauty of the hotel, but more importantly, by the the care and attention that was provided by the hotel staff. They all went out of their way to ensure a most pleasurable experience.

We stayed at this Hilton for several days while a close relative had major surgery at U Penn hospital. Desk staff were professional and efficient. Very quiet, clean rooms with all amenities. We had a very good breakfast with many unexpected, but delicious buffet items. And even the valet parking attendants were kind and friendly. They all made our stay...

We got a bigger room and I used the rollaway sofa and my boys had the king bed. Plenty of space and upscale. My boys had the buffet breakfast which was around 20 dollars and then I walked to Starbucks which I really preferred. UPenn is a city campus and a great downtown location that is right next to the...

Friendly staff, comfortable surroundings, great breakfast. I'd give the restaurant a miss as local independent venues offer better value for money. I would happily stay again if visiting for business.

I have stayed here several times on business trips and it's an excellent hotel, with all the options you need. Complimentary iPad in the room. Well assorted breakfast buffet and the room service is also very good. If you feel like eating out, the Pod right next door is excellent.

This was a medical/vacation my wife traveled to have maxilofascial surgery by the best in the world and I was left in a world class hotel with great food at every turn. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable anything you could want was with in a very short walk. Staff at the hotel was very helpful and friendly.

Everyone was very nice. People at the valet desk went out of their way to be helpful, personally guiding me places. This was one of the nicer college inns we stayed at on our college tour trip. The rooms were fine. It was within walking distance of campus, starbucks and CVS.

Thank OnTheGo6Kids
jimsalvo, General Manager at Hilton Inn at Penn, responded to this review

Dear OnTheGo6Kids, Thank you for your review of your recent experience at our hotel. Considering our placement directly on Penn's campus and short distance to Drexel, we are the perfect choice for college visits here in University City. Please visit again soon.

Add $43 (plus tip) to the room charge you are quoted because there is no where park and you have no choice but to use the valet. I thought it was pretty crappy to omit that fact. This place was top shelf beautiful. No complaints at all but I thought it was expensive.
