Sandwiched between the campuses of the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University, The Study at University City caters to visiting parents, potential students and returning alumni looking for upscale accommodations that won’t set them back a semester’s tuition. After cramming for finals and completing the year's extracurricular activities, local college students are finally enjoying their well-earned summer vacation -- and making room for visitors to explore one of Philadelphia’s trendiest neighborhoods. Here are the top ten reasons why you’ll want to spend summer break at this chic boutique hotel.
Early birds can kickstart the morning with complimentary coffee and periodicals at the lobby café.
Or hit snooze and treat yourself to breakfast in bed courtesy of room service starting at 7am.
Bibliophiles can catch up on their summer reading list in the Living Room's overstuffed armchairs. The floor-to-ceiling bookcases are lined with a selection of classic literature and contemporary local authors.
Each room includes a reading nook and free Wi-Fi, the perfect private spot to unwind with a novel or newspaper.
Sweeping views of the skyline are framed atop work desks -- simultaneously inspiring and distracting their occupants.

After a tough workout, guests can fill up on locally-sourced, seasonal cuisine in Co-Op's dining room or on the outdoor terrace.
On the corner of Chestnut and 33rd Street, the hotel is within walking distance of parks with sports courts and summer activities like farmers markets and free outdoor movies.
