Good Hotels WIthin Walking Distance of UPENN?
« on: August 13, 2007, 09:01:16 PM »
I am taking a weekend Powerscore LSAT class in September at UPENN. I am looking for a safe, somewhat nice hotel within walking distance of UPENN. Any recs? All I can find is the campus that is called the Inn At Penn, and it seems like it will run me $200 a night. I am looking for something in the range of $130-50 a night. THanks.

Since walking distance is a very flexible term, I'm going to suggest you look at things downtown, using one or the other of those famous websites for hotels. A short bus ride or a 10-15 minute walk is enough to reach campus from there. The prices should be more reasonable.

How safe would that be (sorry for my ignorance, I am a country boy :) )?

The sad raelity is that none of Philadelphia is completely safe. But downtown is actually safer than West Philly. Early morning is fine, adn don't stay out too late.

The Inn at Penn is the best you will do by campus. Watch your back in that area of Philly.

If you stay at the University City Sheraton, don't drive your Dad's massive SUV into the parking garage without being certain you'd be able to pull a 90-degree turn into a parking space demarcated by four giant concrete pillars. He might end your life before you get to campus.
