Meal was not good. Steak and seafood was very over done

I didn't know this place existed until my girlfriend found and booked it for a night for our Backstreet Boys concert in Philly and good god the food was great, the area was very well kept and the whole design was nice. And this is related to a university? Honestly the first ever college campus hotel I've ever seen; and if I HAVE seen others then this one blows them away. Would easily come back.

We booked rooms here for our wedding and had a great stay! The rooms were big and clean and the staff was really welcoming. We also used one of the rooms on the first floor for a rehearsal and the food was great and the room looked really nice. I was worried it would look like a conference room, but they did a really nice job! We also had breakfast in the restaurant which was a little expensive, but the food was well portioned and delicious!

Rooms were clean and staff was helpful and nice for the most part. Rooms did not come with a fridge without paying an extra $25 per night, which is a major downside for me. Room was quite expensive considering how bare bones it was (around $300) and we ran into several charging mistakes that took over half an hour to resolve when we went to pay. Would not recommend overall, but rooms are clean and beds are comfortable so it is doable if there are no other options.

We stayed here for a wedding. Room was clean, the bed was comfy, it was really just your standard, acceptable hotel stay. However, I cannot believe for the price of the room, there is no continental breakfast served. Although its separate from the hotel, the restaurant within was less than accommodating when I arrived at 7 AM for breakfast. The hostess and waitress both eyed me through glass windows, and made me wait fifteen minutes before sitting down. Maybe, if the hotel served ANYTHING for breakfast, I would not have to had such an awful experience trying to eat breakfast in the restaurant. PS if breakfast begins at 7, stick to it. Unfortunately it is not the patrons fault you must be at work so early! People are hungry!
