Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express over the weekend and the stay was great! Excellent location (on the water) with great view!! The staff was great and very helpful with getting around the city. I will stay again if coming to Philly.

They allowed us to come in while lost and allowed us to get out of the cold. They offered us hot beverages and made us feel very comfortable and were unbelievably thankful. Ken was especially very helpful. It was very nice and comforting in there. I was pleasantly surprised with the service and would definitely return for an overnight trip.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The location was great, very close to Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and Betsy Ross' house. We asked for and got a river view room, which has a lovely view of a bridge. Everyone I dealt with at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful, particularly Tamir and Nick. The hotel...

The hotel itself was average, small neat room with all the things you expect but nothing more. But the location is amazing, my room looked out on the Ben Franklyn Bridge. They stiff you $20 to park even though the car park belongs to the hotel, and its a good walk to any decent restauarnts

Pro: Corner room was modern and spacious. Hotel is within walking distance of Olde Towne, downtown and the river. Con: The hotel is beside a freeway. Rooms facing the freeway are very noisy, even with the fan on. Bring earplugs. Front desk staff were neither friendly nor welcoming (at checkin or checkout) - granted this could have been because of... More

Stayed here 2 nights for a function my daughter was attending. Got a great price, easily the least expensive hotel I could find in the Philly area. The staff was great...our room was ready early, though we had to take highway side instead of the river view I wanted, but was glad they could accommodate our early arrival! Also, the... More

My experience at this hotel was a good one. The hotel is modern and nicely decorated. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in the sunny, cheerful breakfast room. The view of the river and the bridge from our room were truly beautiful.
