What are your general comments?

"My mother and I stayed at Fort Washington Holiday Inn. It was literally a 10 min train ride to Jenkintown and from there it was a $5 cab ride to the campus. Since we did not drive we used SEPTA and found it very easy to get around. Fort Washington is right by the train station - a 5 min walk, as well, it is close to Friendly's for a quick bite to eat. Also if you plan on taking a cab to your hotel, its best to reconsider and take the train. It only cost $7 and it was extremely easy. If you are staying at Fort Washington, I suggest you take the train to Suburban station, get off and wait for the R5 train (It is clearly marked on the platform). Also if you mention you are going there for an interview, Fort Washington gives you a discounted rate of $99.00/night." Report Response
