University City
Philadelphia, PA 19104
Cross Street: South Street
$175 double. Discounts for relatives of patients in U. Penn and Children's hospitals. Packages available

There's a reason the U. Penn website no longer makes mention of this smallish hotel: The accommodations are modest, at best. Still, the facility serves an important purpose for folks with friends or family at the adjacent University of Pennsylvania Hospital and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia: It's right across the street. The hotel portion of the tower comprises floors 17 and 18, although the university seems to take over more floors every year for medical offices. You'll have to get used to spirited displays of red and blue, Penn's colors, and a long lobby corridor of rough-textured concrete that leads to the reception desk. A coffee cart serves pastries and sandwiches in the lobby starting at 6am.
