Great hotel. It was within walking distance of all of the things that we wanted to see in Philadelphia. The room was very clean and very comfortable slept well. They gave us a room on the highway side and it was just a little noisy. The front desk was very pleasant to us and helped us with everything that we... More

Thank you for the great review, definitely looking forward to seeing you on your next trip. Next time try to see if your could get a room on the river side as it tends to be a lot quieter for light sleepers. More

I stayed here about 4 months ago(Sorry for the late review!) visiting one of my closet friends who lives outside of the city of Philly. We were looking to stay close downtown where we would be partying so we wouldnt have to drive back to his house. I quickly booked this hotel and I was amazed as soon as I... More

If you are not aware, this hotel offers a discounted rate if you have someone staying at the Jefferson Memorial hospital. There is a free shuttle that brings you to and from and runs till at least 10pm. The staff is wonderful and the room was very clean. We were surprised that there was a mini fridge though I don't...

This is a reasonably priced place to stay and a good location. We walked to Old City and Center City daily. It was fun walking back at night because the skating rink was open and they had beautiful lights. We were on the ninth floor and had an excellent view of the bridge and pier area. We stayed five nights... More

When this location was built it was a Comfort Inn but now with Holiday Inn taking over they made a good thing better. The location is close to most historical sites as well as the waterfront(check out the S.S.United States docked just south, still holds record of fastest atlantic ocean) The hotel has a nice bar/bristo and all offerings are...

I stayed at the holiday inn express on a Friday. My experience there was overall a good one. The clerk at the front desk was very cheerful and helpful (he assisted me with figuring out where the shuttles go). My room was on the 7th floor (no elevator trouble). When I got to my door the house keepers cart was... More

We booked this hotel via Hotwire and was skeptical because it 'looked' so far away from everything according to the map. The four of us booked for NYE and NYD so it was at full capacity. The room we ended up with partially looked over the river but mostly the parking lot. We were a bit bummed about that but... More

I had to switch to this hotel due to issues at another property in the area. The hotel is nestled under the Ben Franklin bridge looking out over the Delaware river. I had a corner room with a fantastic view. The hotel staff is very friendly. Parking is a pay lot next to the hotel but the hotel can add... More

Went with my son-in-law and grandson for a one night stay. Room was very clean as was the bathroom and it was stocked with the typical amenities. It must have been a very slow night since they upgraded us to the 7th floor and had an excellent view of the Ben Franklin Bridge and the Camden skyline. Staff at reception... More
