Staff were friendly & helpful. The room was clean. Breakfast was good. Location wasn't as central as we'd hoped however, was only a 5-10minute walk to old city where most of the historic sites are located. Not a lot to do around the hotel. A bit of noise from the traffic below but mainly from other hotel guests!

Stayed here for a business meeting. This hotel is very well located next to the bridge right on the river. Being a top tier member, not much of an upgrade. The rooms otherwise are good. The staff at the hotel is very nice and helpful. The breakfast in the morning is complimentary and the spread is very good. Used the...

Be sure to request a room facing the river. The back side of the hotel backs up to I95. Our room was ready on time, parking was available on site and the courtesy shuttle was available to move us around the city. Breakfast was adequate. The location is fantastic. A short walk to the subway if you need to get...

A good distance from the city so easy to walk in - our room was level with the freeway and felt like it was in touching distance - unbelievably noisy. What is also poor is they don't mention you need to park here which costs an extra $30 a day. My advice is stay way outside the city on a...

The parking was 30 per night, but that's not the hotels fault.. parking is crazy everywhere. We had the best shuttle service. Never had to use a taxi, its all included. They include a nice...

The Holiday Inn Express at Penn's Landing experience was exactly what I have come to expect: courteous, clean, friendly and efficient. Check in was a breeze and my room was in perfect shape. Nice touch with free coffee in the room and the complimentary breakfast was really good. The neighborhood is great as well, close to the water with shops...

This hotel badly needs updating, esp. the windows as they seem to be from the time when William Penn was still around! The first night we had a room on the city side, facing I-95. The constant noise of the traffic made it impossible to find sleep. We switched to a room on the other side which was better, but...

A very good hotel and does not disappoint for the price. Good points: The shuttle bus drivers, excellent to talk to and give you some great tips and info. about their city, so they were polite and friendly. Breakfast was also very good. Bad points, none really.
