Pleasant staff was extremely cordial and helpful. They offered us suggestions on what to see and where to eat (although the eating part didn't pan out so much, avoid Campo's, they suck). The room we stayed in had a king-sized bed and a large corner jacuzzi tub right in the corner of the room. Don't get me wrong, it also... More

Clean hotel, nice room (although I wish the mattress had been softer), good breakfast (very crowded, though), helpful staff when I had questions & the shuttle was fantastic. If you do not mind walking 1/2 - 1 mile, it is an easy walk to the downtown area & there are some good restaurants within walking distance.

We went to Philadelphia to see all the historical landmarks. This hotel was within walking distance of a lot of the things we wanted to see (e.g. Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Constitution Center). The shuttle was a bonus to take us to or within walking distance to Reading Terminal Market, Art Museum, Eastern State Penitentiary. Parking in Philadelphia is expensive... More

Returned to Philly after 14+ years. Family business prompted my return. So many changes to the place I was born. Old city is now a vibrant area that feels safe to walk in This Hotel sits at the base of the Ben Franklin bridge, across from the old Municipal pier. Great views of the Delaware river, and the bridge (... More

We stayed here for a bachelorette party. It was within walking distance of the pier we took our cruise from and several bars. The complimentary shuttle service was a huge plus too. The room was very clean.

We needed a base of operation to do our tourist thing and hoped that this Holiday Inn Express would meet our expectations. It definitely met or exceeded our expectations. We arrived early so had to wait to check in. The front desk person secured our bags and gave us a claim check. BTW, front desk staff is first rate. All... More

It is a little off the beaten path from the heart of the historic center. However a 10 minute walk was not terrible. They do have a shuttle service that runs pretty frequently and will take you where you want to go. The hotel is sandwiched between two major roads which may impact your sleep. I would strongly recommend a... More

It was a good deal. It was cheap and breakfast was included (not great but still available). Public transportation options weren't great but the shuttle was able to get us near the center of the town. Penn's Landing is nearby but you have to walk a bit. It will say you can take the #25 bus but it only comes... More
