We were greeted by Cory at the front desk as soon as we arrived. She was very friendly & accommodating. In fact, all of the staff we encountered were great. The room was very clean & set up extremely well. There was a discrepancy in our bill upon checkout, but when we mentioned it to the front desk clerk he... More

After forking over $11 for long term airport parking at PHL one two many times, I finally found that the Holiday Inn Express does long term parking for just $6.95 per night. The shuttle that goes to the airport leaves every half hour, and when I returned to Philly I just called them and they came to pick me up... More

Check in was quick and everything looked great. They had the government rate and were close to the airport. The room was perfectly cleaned. Everything was dusted, nothing on the floors and beds were gleaming white. The room stayed quite all night and the channel selection was great. Worried about the winter weather, it was easy to find the weather... More

I choose the Airport Holiday Inn Express at Essington, PA after doing a research online of the Hotels near PHL. The reviews was the decisive factor in choosing this property. I checked in... More

I booked this hotel quickly last night due to a flight cancellation. The staff was so helpful, the shuttle was great (only 5 minutes away), and check in/check out was easy. The beds were SO comfortable and the toiletries were by Bath & Bodyworks so that was a nice touch. The room was very modern and clean. There is free... More

Three of my flights out of the Philadelphia International Airport were cancelled so I ended up staying at the Holiday Inn Express for two nights. It was quite close to the airport, which was very convenient for the amount of times I had to travel to the airport. The staff were incredible during my stay. Jenne who worked at the... More

Helpful staff- very convenient to airport. Rooms are sufficient- but not overly spacious. Staff is helpful and friendly. Beautiful view overlooking the water. Only negative- Eat before you go. No fridge or microwave in rooms. Not a huge selection of restaurants near-by.

I stayed at this hotel while participating in an event in Philadelphia. It is close to the city and we were able to travel to major attractions in about 10-15 minutes.
