Loved this hotel!

We had a great experience at the Inn at Penn. We got in late, and left early, but still managed to interact with registration, concierge, and breakfast staff. All four individuals were positive, friendly, and gave great service. Thanks!

Great hotel

Staff is outstanding. Only negative for me was that the walls are paper thin. Could hear people in other rooms on phone calls. Good location and great stay.
