                  It's location is perfect for drexel student's parent....

                  House keeping is no too great.. There are no vegetarian meal options...

                  I liked the place the hotel is located best.

                  Staff did not react to my given information about dirty mirror near elevators. it took 2 days to clean it.

                • Family with children
                  9.2

                  Beds were very comfortable; staff were very helpful; left something behind and they mailed it out immediately at their cost.

                  The computer and wifi didn't seem to work in the room although there were computers in the lobby

                • Single
                  5.4

                  It was my only alternative

                  The recepcionists are unprepared and hostile to clients. It is difficult to understand what is service quality for them.

                • Single
                  7.8

                  Proximity to the train station and only 2 subway stops from everything in the city

                  Room and cleaness

                  The hotel employes were really unpolite. I've never seen some behaviours like these....

                • Couple
                  6.2

                  The hotel was ok, but the bathroom shower needed much work. The tub kept flooding and it was quite disgusting. The rooms looked bigger on their website, but the room I received was average.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Beautiful, extremely clean, central to University City location.

                  Could hear the elevator bell from within our room, don't book a room near the elevator. I seemed to miss a $10 tax when I book on Bookings.com so was expecting the bill to be lower.

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  Friendly helpful stuff, comfort - the beds are excellent!
