We recently stayed at the HIE Philadelphia Airport. The location was great and so convenient to the highway and would also be great if you’re flying in/out of the area. The hotel sits on the Delaware River, with beautiful views of the river out the back of the hotel. The hotel seems recently remodeled, as everything seemed new and clean.... More

In Philli for a couple of days and this was one of the few cheaper/available hotels I could find. It is pleasant enough in quite a good location by the water.

I only stayed one night at this hotel but every need I had was met. As I had an early flight out of PHL, it's proximity to the airport was ideal. Upon arrival and departure I was greeted with a warm smile from the staff, which was a nice change from the hotel I stayed at earlier in the week.... 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 was flying out of Philadelphia International airport on January 5 so I decided to stay in a hotel near the airport the night before my flight.
