We spent a long weekend in Philadelphia at the HIE Penn's Landing and had a wonderful time. We arrived early and had to wait about 30 minutes for our room to be ready. We were in room 1008 with a wonderful view of the Ben Franklin Bridge. The room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful whenever we... More

Stayed here recently for 2 nights whilst visiting Philadelphia for the first time. We caught the Amtrak train from Washington DC into Philadelphia so arrived at 3rd street tube station which was about 10-15min walk to the hotel. The hotel is located very close to the waterfront at Penns Landing but is close to what appeared to be a motorway,... More

We only had time to stay one night in Philadelphia, I wish we had decided to stay longer. The staff here are great, very smiley and friendly. When booking we mentioned there was a birthday coming up and we were treated to room 1014 with an amazing view of the bridge. Thank you to Holiday Inn Express Penns Landing 🖒

The best part of the hotel is Brian who is a shuttle driver! Everyone else was pleasant enough but he stood out for excellent guest experience. He started out my days great with our chats in the shuttle. The front desk didn't always smile or speak which I believe is important. A couple of times I was in the elevator... More

Great stay, great value.Very clean, confortable and quiet. Great location for walking to town and the riverlink ferry. The free shuttle service was friendly and extremely convenient for times we were dressed up to go out and didn't want to walk.

This has been the second time we have stay here. It improved vastly from the first, Generous selection at the breakfast buffet, well stocked and ample seating. Went in July for 4 days and the hotel offers a shuttle service within a 2 mile radius. Very nice touch as we were able to take it to the Museum of Art... More

Penn's Landing is a relatively good location in Philly, closed to the old town and right on the river bank. The Holiday Inn has simple, clean rooms. Asked for a room with a view to the river, which makes a big difference. The hotel offers parking onsite for a reasonable price. Like all Holiday Inn Express there is complementary breakfast....

I would stay here again. It is clean. Staff very nice. Beautiful of the Delaware River. It is a short walk to Old Town. However, the hotel does not have a restaurant or bar, which was disappointing. But it a reasonable walk to the best sights. And one can get a drink or meal a couple blocks away. The hotel... More
