Pros: good size rooms, comfy beds, very attentive staff, free shuttle to nearby places, easy check-in and check-out, excellent breakfast choices with several hot options. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Cons: I didn't encounter any during my stay. A colleague had a room facing the parking lot, which made it a bit less exciting. Definitely ask for... More

I wanted to stay at my host hotel for my training session, but it was full. I was blown away by the view and great service at the Holiday Inn Express.! The view was incredible and I was fortunate to have this room for 5 nights! I'm not used to traffic sounds at night, so be warned that it can... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review, we always love to hear guest feedback. We are so sorry our shuttle was not able to take you to your destination, it can definitely take longer than usual on very busy days being as though there is only one van and we understand how this heat could have made...

Rooms were clean, staff professional, and breakfast was fresh and good. Location was excellent for walking to restaurants and historic Philadelphia. Shuttle service a plus for transporting to sites close in proximity. No shuttle service available for the airport. Would stay here again.

My husband, infant son and I decided to stay at Holiday Inn Express-Penn's Landing since we have always had wonderful experiences with other Holiday Inn Expresses. However, this was by far the worse Holiday Inn Express we have been to. For the entire week stay, we never had warm water. When I informed the front desk, I was told that... More

I am extremely embarrassed to hear about your experience at our property. When we initially heard about this room it was immediately taken out of service and fixed immediately before another guest could check in. We have also shared your concerns with our front desk team. Your concerns were not properly handled and I am very disappointed that this was... More

The hotel is clean with a friendly and accommodating staff. Located near the Delaware River with views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Room was clean and nicely appointed. I found the room spacious and bright, a plus in a downtown location. Located in walking distance (about 15 minutes) to the Liberty Bell and other historic locations. And, the walk allows... More

We were very lucky to get a room here. I recommend requesting a room that face the river and not the highway but the noise isn't a deal breaker. The staff has been fast, friendly and very professional. The room was clean and fresh upon our arrival. I will book here again.

We stayed here for a concert we were attending in Camden. The hotel itself was great, reasonable price, staff was friendly and helpful. Easy walking distance to ferry to Camden. Stress free, will stay again for sure! $30 to park was worth it! Great free breakfast!! Thanks!
