Well located, easily walk to City Centre, breakfast -which is included -is hot and plentiful. However it was "American"- great if you like it. Rooms facing the Delaware have a great view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, however those at the rear are overlooked by or overlook the Freeway.Noisier and far less desirable. We stayed 4 nights and returned to... More

Located in the very central historically place, the hotel is really in the old city. Unfortunately later on the location was surrounded by two big roads, right under the walls. It is a major problem with the location and the quetness of the place. Coffee and tea is available 24 hrs + coffee maker in the room. Rooms are American... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in May 2015. The hotel is in a nice location and also has parking for those who need it. However, we had 3 problems that marred our stay. Firstly, all the rooms on the rear side of the hotel face highway I-95 and this makes them very noisy. It was not easy getting a... More

We stayed in a newly decorated room and it was nice and clean. The hot breakfast and good coffee was appreciated. The staff was kind enough to offer us a late check-out time of 2 pm. This really helped us make better use of our day. The location was great, with many places close by to eat and drink. They... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Penn’s Landing Friday-Sunday, May 8-10, 2015. We had locked our tablets/phones, wallets, and chargers, etc. in the safe before we went out for the day on Saturday morning (around 11:00am). But I had accidently forgotten to put the HDMI cord (for my tablet) in the safe as well. The... More

Dear Amy 7830, Thank you very much for sharing your experience. This is completely unacceptable and must be addressed immediately. Please give myself Kelly Ryder or the Assistant General Manager Andrew Harris a call at your earliest convenience to discuss this further. You can call the hotel directly at 215-627-7900. This type of behavior will not be tolerated. I apologize... More

We have always stayed elsewhere, and with a different chain but due to a relocation of family members we decided staying right in the city was better. I actually booked this without checking tripadvisor - something I never do, so I was REALLY happy to see all the great reviews. I can happily add mine. We ordered the parking package... More

The view from the river is great! We apologize for not having a long mirror in the room. I will make that suggestion I the next staff... More

We stayed here 2 nights in late April. There were bus loads of students staying here and that may have had an impact on our opinion. Our room was on the 10th floor and had a nice view. Breakfast was plentiful and typical of this chain. There is a shuttle to Independence Hall, etc. and that is helpful. The walk... More

Nice enough place on Penns Landing. Walking distance from Liberty Bell and shuttle takes you to close-by locations. Had free breakfast and microwave in lobby but if you wanted fridge in room was $10 extra.Overnight parking $25 extra which was standard for this city but at least I was able to keep it through the next day during my meeting....
