We were greeted upon arrival. The rooms are clean The hotel provides shuttle to the airport also .There is a breakfast provided for the guest in the morning. This hotel is convenient to the airport and a Marina but not to town or attractions.

I have stayed here in the past and it was great to see that the rooms have been updated with new furnishings and TVs.. My room also had a microwave and refrigerator. The high speed internet is complementary and works well. The free breakfast is good and the staff is very friendly. The property is located on the river next... More

The Holiday Inn Express is just a fantastic hotel. Located just minutes from the airport, and close to the exciting entertainment and delicious restaurants at Harrah's Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack, this property still manages to keep you close to the attractions of downtown Philadelphia. When someone says that location is everything, then the Holiday Inn Express has you covered! Right... More

We blocked off some rooms for our wedding and all seemed to have gone well and I told them that my husband and I would be checking in late. We reserved a King Bed and dropped off bags of snacks and water for all of us staying there later. When checking the guy working the front was totally rude and... More

My elderly father and I stayed here during a trip to Philadelphia over the Labor Day holiday and the following week in 2013. Except for Aisha, who was TERRIFIC, the front desk staff all seemed to have "attitudes".

This hotel was okay. Nothing really to write home about. I am usually not one to complain, but this time, I feel compelled to do so. Having stayed at another Holiday Inn the night before, this one pales in comparison. When we arrived, the front desk clerk was not mean or anything, but she was not welcoming at all. I... More

We spent a night in this hotel due to a layover. The hotel has a good location, the shuttle service to the airport is really good, some of the employees give good service, however, the room cleaning and halls cleaning is awful, all the carpets were stained and worn, we found hair in our sheets and bathroom. Cleaning is very... More

Had to catch a flight today and Ken one of their shuttle drivers came through! Great personality and very informative about the airline I was taking. Thank you Ken for a safe and comfortable shuttle ride to the Airport!
