This hotel was okay. Nothing really to write home about. I am usually not one to complain, but this time, I feel compelled to do so. Having stayed at another Holiday Inn the night before, this one pales in comparison. When we arrived, the front desk clerk was not mean or anything, but she was not welcoming at all. I... More

We spent a night in this hotel due to a layover. The hotel has a good location, the shuttle service to the airport is really good, some of the employees give good service, however, the room cleaning and halls cleaning is awful, all the carpets were stained and worn, we found hair in our sheets and bathroom. Cleaning is very... More

The staff is wonderful and helpful. The housekeepers do a great job at keeping the aging furniture and carpeting clean. It is next to the Park where you can sit by the river. It's a bit more expensive than it used to be but I guess the word is out that it's a great place to stay.

We recently stayed at the HIE Philadelphia Airport. The location was great and so convenient to the highway and would also be great if you’re flying in/out of the area. The hotel sits on the Delaware River, with beautiful views of the river out the back of the hotel. The hotel seems recently remodeled, as everything seemed new and clean.... More

In Philli for a couple of days and this was one of the few cheaper/available hotels I could find. It is pleasant enough in quite a good location by the water. I was initially concerned about the closeness to the landing flight-path, but to be honest I did not hearth noise of the planes. Anyway. To the title. On leaving... More

I only stayed one night at this hotel but every need I had was met. As I had an early flight out of PHL, it's proximity to the airport was ideal. Upon arrival and departure I was greeted with a warm smile from the staff, which was a nice change from the hotel I stayed at earlier in the week.... More

We were greeted by Cory at the front desk as soon as we arrived. She was very friendly & accommodating. In fact, all of the staff we encountered were great.

After forking over $11 for long term airport parking at PHL one two many times, I finally found that the Holiday Inn Express does long term parking for just $6.95 per night. The shuttle that goes to the airport leaves every half hour, and when I returned to Philly I just called them and they came to pick me up... More
