Astonishingly nice

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 30, 2010

I had the occasion to spend 4 nights at Penn Tower Hotel att eh U of PA in Philadelphia this past week during a family member's hospital stay at the Hospital of the Univ. of PA. I booked the hotel mainly due to its closeness to the hospital, security and convenience. When I read some the horrible reviews on this hotel in various listings, I was appalled and dismayed but decided to go with my gut instinct and stay there anyway. In fact my stay there was perfectly fine, the staff was pleasant and courteous and the room was above all very clean. I cannot imagine what induced the earlier mentioned negative reviews as I experienced not one of their purported negatives. I suppose that if some persons were expecting to stay at a Health Club or Resort, they might have been disappointed, but this hotel largely caters to families of ill persons who are hospitalized at the HUP and it does an excellent job at this. I have no doubt whatsoever that if the occasion should present itself in the future where I might stay there again, I will do so with out any hesitation whatsoever and will so recommend it to all and any persons I know. Nice job, Penn Tower!

Unique Quality: Proximity to HUP, security, good clean accommodations.

Directions: University City, Philadelphia, across street from Hospital of the the U of PA and from Childrfens' Hospital
