Good Hotel, Great Area

Posted Dec 13, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Heating a bit noisy
Location: Nearby is the Seaport Museum. Elfyths Alley is a short walk and independence square is an easy ten minute walk.
Hotel had a good location being near the seaport museum, independence square and the hop on hop off bus route. Lots of bars nearby where you could grab a meal and drink. Hotel room was comfortable, clean and quiet with friendly staff. All in all a good hotel.

Lovely hotel in a beautiful part of town. The staff was SO SO SO super nice. I arrived at 7am with a fever, nursing a bad flu and asked for a room. They gave me free breakfast and set me up in a room 30 minutes later. Try that at a major chain!

Great Value and Location.

Posted Nov 13, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Possibly longer hours for breakvast for those who are sleepy in the morning
Location: Lots of museums, restaurants, penn's landing, pubs, subway on and on.....
Location is really good. You are on the east end of old city where the majority of museums are located. Less than a block to the subway station market & 2nd st. The subway will take you anywhere you want to go for less than $2 each way. Lots of restaurants, pubs, shops nearby for whatever kind of tastes you have. The hotel managment seem to really care that everyone enjoys their stay. We had one small issue which was rectified right away which shows they care. It is an old building with lots of character and the rooms are on the smaller side which is expected for these types of older buildings. Hotel lounge has massive supply of wines and good happy hours daily.

Well located and good value

Posted Nov 2, 2014
Pros: Location and quiet room. Copes well with the restrictions that apply to a historic building in terms of internal and external dimensions and d├ęcor.
Cons: At the specification and price it is good value. No realistic improvement can be identified.
Location: Plenty of bars/restaurants within 10 minutes' walk. Whole of historic area of Philadelphia is walkable. 10 minutes to the start/finish of the tours.
Stayed one night after a conference visit. The location is good - on the edge of the old town and within 10 minutes' easy walk of many varied bars and restaurants. Hotel is simple, but great value. Rooms are quiet. Would definitely stay again when in Philly with leisure time available.

Nice Hotel; Good Location

Posted Oct 31, 2014
Pros: Location, comfort, cleanliness and very good linens! Fireplace added plus. Charm of older hotel.
Cons: Was there on a Wednesday night; wine bar was advertised but was closed by 11:00.
Location: Location, even though close to interstate, and our room was in front, not much noise. Walked to center city easily and easy trip to sports events.
Was pleasantly surprised at how close hotel is to all attractions. Easy access to concert location. Room was clean and very comfortable with a gas fireplace! Large bathroom and CLEAN! Breakfast ok...parking convenient. Would stay again.

Our favorite place to stay in Philly

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: The pristine condition, comfort, and aesthetics of the rooms; the location is perfect, too.
Cons: We can't think of a thing that should be changed.
Location: Penn's View is in a perfect location, right in Old City, close to Metro, restaurants, shops, and historic sites.
We have been staying at the Penn's View for years and have never, ever, been disappointed. It's always immaculate and luxuriously comfortable. The staff are consistently courteous and helpful, and Panorama Ristorante is right there! Accommodations are priced well, too, and this time we were upgraded to a beautiful room with a large balcony and gas fireplace. However, every one of their rooms we've stayed in has been wonderful, including the super comfortable and clean baths/showers, towels, and bath robes. Our stay, this time, was no different from others - superb! We highly recommend Penn's View.

Our room had a fireplace and a jacuzzi. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had any thing we needed. Good complementary breakfast. Excellent customer service!
