I recently attended a conference at the Center and decided to stay there for the convenience of location despite the cost being higher than many of the chains (Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, etc.) that dot the area. I'll start with the positives: it was convenient and the food was GREAT, probably the best food I've ever had at a conference. But... More

wifi only works with PCs. We had two PCs, two iPhones, two iPads. The PCs connect no problem. When we inquired about the phones or iPads, we were told it is a known problem that apple products do not connect. Then the story changed to there was too many people on the network (then why does it only affect apple... More

We stayed at this hotel the night prior to a Villanova visit. The Conference Center is a short mile away from Villanova main campus. The buildings look great from the outside but the interior looks outdated. I believe the hotel will be renovated this fall. Staff was corteous and efficient. Breakfast was good. In general, this was good place to... More

Stayed at the conference center for three nights. Rooms are quiet, spacious, and clean. Don't expect too many amenities, but this is a well run hotel. One drawback you may want to consider: Other than a complimentary breakfast ( which is always first rate), you will need to travel a few miles for food service.

The staff was great, very accommodating and positive. The main areas were a little dated and not the quality of expectation I expected when looking at their website. Was not disappointed with the stay just expected a little more for the money. The room was very clean, the bathroom was recently updated. I would stay there again however I may... More

We have stayed here quite a few times in the past. This place is in a beautiful and quiet location. Unfortunately, it was incredibly warm the other night. Our room was 78 degrees and we couldn't adjust the temperature. The free breakfast is always nice and the staff is always very pleasant.

Nice large room. New bathroom. Clean. Breakfast included. Great location on campus. Price was low. No hesitation to stay again. If you are visiting the Villanova campus, this is the easiest place to stay.

I usually love the VU Conference Center and have stayed there in the past with much better experiences. The price is right and the rooms are nicely done, if slightly tired, and it's quiet.

This is not your typical chain hotel, because it's a conference center, but it was priced very reasonably. The room was spacious and comfortable, although the furnishings were somewhat old and worn. The breakfast was unlike anything you get for free at chain hotels. It included lots of fresh fruit, cut and whole, and several hot breakfast items that I... More
