8/10 Very good

Great location and great comfort
The location is top-notch, right between Drexel and UPenn’s campus and across from the subway and underground trolley lines into downtown. There’s also a Wawa convenience store right around the corner. Staff were very friendly and responsive to issues that came up (e.g. the alarm clock in the room next to me went off randomly and they turned it off right away when I let them know). The hotel felt very smart design-wise, especially the lobby, and the room felt nice and airy. I don’t think I’ve had a better night’s sleep than the ones I had in the beds at this place, although you have to request sheet changes. Despite the high temperatures outside, the heavy blanket felt great and helped me sleep well, and although the rooms have no coffee maker, the free coffee in the lobby each morning was very welcome. Definitely staying here again next time I’m in Philly.

We were expecting a bigger room for 2 double beds, but the view and location were great. Too bad the shower door didn’t close all the way… Liked the beds but most of all loved the bedding. We will be back.

The Study at University City (Philadelphia)
Always a great stay. The staff are phenomenal and just a reminder you may ask for a mini-fridge or microwave for your room prior to or when you arrive. It can get a little noisy outside in the morning, your in the city! However, it’s a top notch place. Enjoy!

Overall Good Stay
The parking was confusing. There was not a valet on the front of the hotel upon our arrival. The property was clean and the room comfortable. The hotel restaurant was convenient. However, the food and coffee was served lukewarm. Service at the restaurant was scattered and inattentive.
