I booked a room at this hotel at the last minute and spent north of $300 for one night. The hotel staffs were professional and efficient during the check in and check out. The King-size bed I slept on was very comfortable, one the best I have had in decades! There was a free Wi-Fi internet, which is nice (but considering the price of the room, it is a must!)
They also have a gym, very spacious and having many choices of equipment. However, the room temperature at the gym was a bit too high for me. In fact, I chose to cool down myself by walking outside the hotel after my workout. Granted, I am a serious gym rat who sweats A LOT while running hard on the treadmill.
Overall, I recommend this hotel to travelers, especially those who attend event at UPenn.
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.
