Neighborhood

Tree-lined streets, public gardens, and open green spaces make University City a verdant, livable community. Neighbors shop together for fresh produce at farmers markets, dine in cozy restaurants, and listen to open-air concerts and plays, all within blocks of the distinctive wide porches of the leafy residential areas.

This unique and diverse neighborhood in West Philadelphia was named for the six colleges and universities that sit between 50th street and the Schuylkill River, but it is much more than a college town. University City making it one of the most livable, well-kept, and friendly neighborhoods in Philadelphia.

We didn't break your lamp.
Scammers. We didn't break your lamp. Thanks for billing us for something we didn't do. We were at your hotel because our 5-year old child was having a tumor removed from his brain stem. Thanks for taking our money.

Near-perfect experience
the apartment was beautifully appointed and came equipped with kitchen equipment and a smart tv. i loved the layout; it was honestly the type of space i’d like to live in someday. my only complaint was that an air conditioner was bolted into the window, making it impossible to remove and creating an incredibly drafty atmosphere, considering it’s wintertime. i ended up having to blast the heat in order to offset the cold air coming in.
