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

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

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....

Highly disappointed on the condition of our room, blood stain on the sheets, lipstick stain on the shower curtain no batteries in the remote control. This hotel obviously doesn't care about their guest if they did they would have replaced everything instead of trying to was the stains out and thinking it was okay. I will never come back at...

I have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express before they remodeled and after they remodeled. We really enjoyed our stay. It was clean, located near downtown and across the street from the Delaware River and the big beautiful Benjamin Franklin Bridge which was always lit at night. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, the desk staff was exceptional in meeting our... More

We stayed here two nights on a weekend sightseeing trip to Philadelphia. The desk staff was helpful in recommending a place to eat. The hotel is in walking distance of Independence Hall, Liberty Bell and many other historical sites. Parking can be a challenge but once we parked we just walked or took the free shuttle. Parking is $25 a... More
