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

The room was on the 10th or top floor with a river view; quite beautiful. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We needed extra sheets for our granddaughter to sleep with and they promptly helped out. There is a free breakfast in the morning and, unlike other HI Expresses we've stayed at, there was ample seating for everyone. Dislikes:... More

Nice, clean hotel in a great location! Easy walk to the historic area. Stayed here to catch the ferry to a concert across the river. Friendly staff and nice rooms. Some car noise from the entrance to the bridge at night, but not that bad.

The Holiday Inn Express in Philadelphia on Penns Landing was in a great location for convenience into Philadelphia. The hotel is right next to Ben Franklin's bridge and on the water front. If you have a waterfront view (like the other couple traveling with us) the views are great! However, the other side of the hotel has a view of... More
