    Penn's View Hotel

    The hotel is above Spassos which is a fine front street restaurant and two blocks away from all the fun on Second street. Had a balcony over looking the river. Very clean and quiet. Will stay again.

  • 6.0.Good

    Not Great

    Needs better info on where to park and entrance to hotel. Room is well appointed, but somewhat claustrophobic even with a window (it looks out at a brick building that is very close). Also no info in the room on where to eat, room service, nothing. Check in staff was efficient but not at all welcoming.

    After abruptly leaving Ireland due to Coronavirus 2 days before my St. Patrick’s Day birthday we arrived in Philly 5 days earlier than expected and couldn’t have been happier with our choice! Everything was perfect from Antonio the manager to the historic Old City location. Highly recommended!

    The property had a very European feel to it. It had a ton of places near by to eat and was within walking distance of the Liberty Bell.
