    Staff really nice. Excellent location. Convenient neighborhood.

    It's not very easy to find the hotel. Google Map could not find its new name Polett Walk. One had to search for West Berks Street. Besides, it would be helpful if there are signs to indicated the hotel is IN Temple Univ.

    Wonderful experience! I was visiting Temple University and the hotel was basically on campus, it couldn't have been more convenient! Great location if visiting the school and very pleasant staff.

    The fact that it was easy access to the Broad Street Run and cheap.

    Very noisy at night. I felt safe being in the heart of Temple University, bu the students yell in the street at 2:00 AM.

    Could not have been more convenient for university activities and the subway system. Drove in and didn't need to move the car for 2+ days.

    Due to location near retail services and dorms the trash trucks showed up multiple times very early in the morning. Room was near the elevator with loud people in the hallway arriving at 2:30 A.M. -- not particularly quiet location but the convenience more than outweighed that !

    The shower curtain was moldy and the room smelled of mold. It was a large room, comfortable bed, superficially clean but the mold was a problem. If you are visiting Temple it is an excellent location. It is also near the subway, otherwise, not a very good location.

    The size of the room was very generous, great value. Hotel is very convenient for Temple University visit, right on campus. Staff was great and very helpful.

    The hotel staff was top notch. The room accomodations were comfortable and cleaned each day and in a timely manner. For business trips to Center City transportation is available in a variety of ways. For access to the "Temple University" main campus...PERFECT! Can't wait to visit again.

    Big room, comfortable, easy to get to the city, strong air conditioning

    no parking

    The staff was wonderful. When arriving and leaving, they always asked if they could help take our bags from our car to our room. They had freshly baked cookies ready in the lobby. The room was small, but very comfortable and nicely furnished. We were very pleasantly surprised.

    The room could have been a little cleaner. There was a little mildew on the shower curtain, for example. Nothing too bad, but it detracted a little. Also, parking is fairly expensive. I would recommend paying the extra $15, though, as it certainly is much more convenient than trying to find parking on the street.

    Jacuzzi tub in the room and safe, convenient location on the lovely Temple University campus were my favorite aspects. It's just a few blocks from the subway, which was very convenient. Fresh fruit and cookies in the lobby were a nice touch.

    Cleanliness of the linens could be improved. Breakfast selection was limited.

  • Family with children

    Quiet, comfortable, park like setting. The Conwell is tucked away on Temple University grounds, it is smaller than the big box hotels of downtown but much more homey and personable. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Book the parking package- for Philadelphia it is very reasonable.The rooms are neat, clean and tidy. The continental breakfast is good, if you want pastries the Saxby is through a door by the elevator-fresh baked goods daily.Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and apples are available 24/7 in the lobby. I would recommend the Conwell Inn to anyone who wants a quiet retreat after a busy day touring/shopping Philadelphia.

    Parking- book the parking when you book your room- parking in Philadelphia is hard to find and can be very expensive- $15 a night is reasonable.

    Very comfortable, large rooms. Easy to reach from the subway. Safe area. 24 hr coffee available.

    Noisy outside during early morning hours. Older TV's with limited cable. 'Breakfast'? Not so much.....

    The staff was very friendly, the hotel was very quiet and clean. Jessica was very nice with us and provided all the information that we required. I strongly recommend this hotel. Great service!

    The neighborhood around the hotel (outside of the campus) is not so safe. But that has nothing to do with the hotel management.

    The service from staff was excellent.

    It was a $10 cab ride from the city centre.

    I loved the cookies! Room was comfortable for a family of 3 - liked that my daughter had her own space with pull-out couch in separate room. Nice space for one night as we enjoyed Philly!

    Would have like bananas/fruit included in the continental breakfast
