Husband stayed home! I drove in from Williamsport, PA, my girlfriend flew in from Arizona. The shuttle took me to meet her at the airport. Our room was very comfortable. The driver was the best helping these 2 middle age women in and out of the van with patience. I went to get breakfast to take back to our room.... More

Front desk, housekeeping, and breakfast crew were stars. I cannot say enough good about the entire bunch but the room is another story. We stayed in room 101 and the musty smell was horrible. We stayed four nights and never got over it. The room was dreary and the gray carpet awful. The AC unit sounded like a jet taking... More

First the positives: the bed was very comfortable, the in-room conveniences of microwave, frig and coffee maker were appreciated, and the staff is very friendly. The airport noise was drowned out by the air conditioner fan. Now for the negative: the parking lot could be scary for a woman driving alone, parking in the dark, and walking to the entrance....

HI Express in Essington was very convenient. Shuttle ran on time and the driver was very courteous and attentive, even at 4:00 a.m. The hotel is a bit dated, but has been updated. Our room was very clean and the desk people were also very respectful. The only issue we had was finding a good place to eat, which we... More

This hotel is very near the Philadelphia airport. Shuttle service even during rush hour was good. There is a large parking area and a park adjacent with views of the Delaware river.

4 friends who grew up a few miles away needed rooms for the night prior to an early morning flight out of Philadelphia. Here we could also park our cars during our trip and get picked up when we got back from our vacation after midnight. I was surprised to see this hotel along the waterfront and was pleasantly surprised... More

Stayed just for one night. The room and service was good. BUT I didn't know that you need to call for the shuttle from the airport. I thought like other hotels the shuttle comes every so often. I ended waiting for more than hour before finally calling and then the shuttle arrived.

Another fairly consistent HI Express experience including the trademark free hot breakfast. Room was on the older side but still well-maintained, clean, had plenty of outlets, and featured complimentary wifi. Just beware that you should CALL THE FRONT DESK to request a shuttle pickup from PHL in case they aren't circulating at the time that you arrive. Staff were absolutely... More

I generally stay at IHG hotels as I am a member. Since I was in town for a quick business meeting I thought I would stay at this property because it was close to the airport. Like other reviewers if it wasn't for the staff my rating would have been lower. There is nothing to do around the property if... More
