We stayed at Holiday Inn Express on Friday and Saturday nights. We were visiting the city for the first time as a romantic weekend getaway and hoped to see as many sites as quickly as possible since we were really only going to have one full day there. The hotel is in an amazing location and the lady at check-in... More

We stayed one night in this hotel while in the area for a wedding. The hotel staff that stowed our bags for us before we could check in were very polite and helpful. One of our favorite features of this hotel was the shuttle. It will drop you off within a certain distance from the hotel, and we made good... More

I've been staying at numerous hotels in the Philly area for the past couple of weeks. This hotel is WAY overpriced for what you get. Also, $25 a day additional for parking. Good location, good service; however, not all rooms are waterfront, and the rooms on the highway side are very noisy all night! Great free breakfast, but it was... More

The staff at the front desk could not have been more friendly, helpful and obliging. The rooms were clean and seemed recently refurbished. Fairly quiet room and comfortable beds. Good complimentary breakfast in large, airy surroundings. One of the amazing features of the hotel is a free, shuttle service that drops off and picks up guests around Philadelphia from 6:30... More

This was an average to maybe above average hotel. The locations great! Right off I-95, walking distance to a lot of great bars & restaurants, near old town philly, right off the water, and easy access to the ferry to NJ. I paid the small amount more to have a river view, which I'm glad I did having a beautiful... More

This was booked online and it certainly was not the cheapest one that was on our 'short list'. We arrived firstly being told off by the parking attendant in an adjacent car park about moving our car in the entry area. (blocked by a taxi). Then a busy and frantic reception up to our "river-view" room. Well, if you call... More
