Just came home from an overnight trip to Philly for quick getaway. The weather was not good so we left Atlantic City early (snowing :() and called to see if we could check in early. I was told that that would be no problem. Got to the hotel around 1:00 pm, room was ready. Upon making my reservation 4 weeks... More

It's an HI Express where you get what you expect. The location is a perfect spot to be close to the Historical District - a little pricey but you're so close to the attractions you want to see on a limited duration visit. One elevator was being serviced so we used the stairs. Breakfast met our needs and we were... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of March. Our first room was next to a group of rather loud guests getting ready to go to a local rave so we were kindly moved to a room higher up. We had a great view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and the room was small but clean. Breakfast was... More

Nice hotel, good hot breakfast, friendly staff, convenient shuttle to local attractions and restaurants. The only negatives are the street noise (the fan drowned that out ) and the cost of parking $25/ night.

This property is located in the Penns Landing neighborhood, literally in the shadow of the Ben Franklin bridge. On the other side of the (Delaware) river, is New Jersey. I walked from the 11th street station to the property, but there is a closer subway station (2nd Street). Neighborhood is mostly light commercial, not necessarily unsafe, but I wouldn't go... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel! The front desk staff (both night and morning) were extremely congenial and helpful. The room was more than adequate, and the beds were really comfortable. It was also immaculate. And they had some great photos of Philadelphia on the walls. The complimentary breakfast was plentiful with a varied selection. We did not expect... More

We were in town to visit my Dad at Thomas Jefferson Hospital. We stayed elsewhere the first night and ended up booking this hotel for the last 3 nights we were there. It was Valentine's weekend so the price was a bit high but we still enjoyed this hotel. Very functional, comfortable beds and the staff were great. The shuttle... More

The staff was super friendly, the hotel was within 2 miles of everything I wanted to see (even though my tourism was cut short due to this super frigid weather), and it was relatively reasonably priced. Only major complaint I have is that only one elevator was working due to rennovations/upgrades on the other, but that's not something they can... More
