I stayed here last week. I was supposed to stay midweek (Wednesday) through the weekend but cut it short and switched to another hotel. I chose this hotel bc it's on the river and we were there for the Tall Ships Festival. I specifically requested a riverview room, instead got a room in the back facing the highway. The windows...

Location! Location! An easy walk right to the baseball game and our double queen room had a great view of the stadium! For some reason they only have van service TO the airport,..not both ways. For the price of the rooms I recommend they seriously consider adding this service for all of us out-of-towers.

We came here on a girl's weekend. The hotel was booked solid because of a big concert at the Linc (thanks, Taylor Swift), so we were prepared to wait until the very last minute to be able to check in. The woman at the front desk was determined to get us into a room early, and she checked us in... More

The hotel is in a very good location and our room on the 10th floor had a great view of the Delaware River and the Ben Franklin bridge. The front desk staff was most accommodating and Brian, the shuttle bus driver went above and beyond his job explaining transportation options, places of interest, etc. Although not a new property, the...

We came here on a casual couples trip. We liked this hotel because it was close to Old City and the nightlife Philadelphia has to offer. It's also very close to Penn's Landing which had a variety of things going on during our stay. The staff was great, except we were left waiting around the lobby for a while to... More

This reasonably priced hotel is only about six blocks from Independence Park and just a short ferry ride from the USS New Jersey, America's most decorated battleship. The staff were pleasant. The breakfast was one of the best complimentary breakfasts our family has experienced. The courtesy tea and coffee bar was available round-the-clock. Parking is available, but as expected, was...

We arrived here on a Monday evening and it was obvious that this is a busy hotel, a mix of groups, people on business, tourists etc. It is easy to find near to the George Washington bridge, has ample parking at $25.00 per 24 hours. It also within walking distance of the Seaport museum, the ferry across to the Aquarium... More

This hotel is well located in Penns Landing and an easy walk from many of the sights of Philadelphia. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable and always answered questions honestly. Breakfast is typical of the brand but the staff kept the supplies topped up even when groups of school children on excursions filled the breakfast room. The guest room was clean,... More

We were in Phila for a wedding and as I travel I usually stay at a Holiday Inn as I am a Priority Club Member. We arrived and things went well until about 9:00 p.m. and the noise from the rooms next to us kept getting louder and louder. I went down to the front desk and told them what... More
