The Conwell is conveniently located within the Temple University campus. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were quiet. The bed was a little soft, so it was hard to get comfortable. The pillows are great. There are not really amenities, but the convenient location made it easy to get a meal or necessities nearby. It was nice to be just off the main street.

This is the only hotel within walking distance from the Temple Univ campus on Broad St. Fortunately, it is a good one. Decently priced, with spacious rooms, clean and quiet. The parking space is limited to only 9 cars We arrived late and did not get one. However, there are plenty of garages and free parking spaces on the streets around the train station.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We arrived around 11 p.m. (on a road trip) and they had GIVEN AWAY OUR ROOM, WHICH WE HAD PRE-PAID FOR MONTHS IN ADVANCE! No phone call, no email, nothing about no late check-in on the hotel site, just "screw you." Front desk worker couldn't care less, so here we were stuck with a 7-year-old kid in Philadelphia with nowhere to go. Spent two hours in their lobby trying to book another room. AVOID AT EVERY COST!!!
