We stayed in the Holiday Inn Express Philadelphia Midtown to use a free room we had earned. We couldn't ask for a better location for viewing the Philadelphia Flower Show. The hotel is only a ten minute walk from the convention center. Shops and restaurants are all around. The king bedroom was very spacious. I think we had four chairs... More

Our friends and we come to Philadelphia each New Years to meet some other friends who live in the area. The out-of-towners usually stay in another hotel, but I felt their rate had gotten out of hand this year. I checked TA and we decided to try the HI Express. We were not disappointed at all. The location was great,... More

The staff here is really exceptional. - I stayed here for two nights. On the first night, my room was on the 15th floor. The first thing I usually inspect are the sheets because I'm allergic to fragrance and detergent. No sign of either, awesome. - The room had a faint smokey smell, probably from smokers from years past. It... More

The room was nicer than I expected for the reasonable rate. They are large, modern, clean and comfortable. I had only 1 issue with the hotel - their computer/printers that they offer for guests to print boarding passes have viruses and they need to fix that. Not a big deal compared to all of the other good qualities of the... More
