Verified Reviews of Villanova University Conference Center

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Lovely and very affordable!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I found this hotel on TripAdvisor. The room was very clean and beautifully decorated. The room charge was very reasonable especially considering it was on the Main Line, an exclusive area of Philadelphia. The hotel staff were wonderful and found a great restaurant for us for dinner. We would definitely book a room at this hotel again.
