Clean and updated rooms. Quick and friendly check in and check out. Outstanding value in comparison with other Phila. airport hotels. Book online for best rates. Thumbs up for 24 hour reliable airport shuttle service. The shuttle goes to the airport every half hour.

Room Tip: When this hotel has a low occupancy rate they tend to send everyone to rooms on the first floor. If...

Comfortable, clean and quite. Everything that you’d expect from the average Holiday Inn Express. Halls are a bit dark and dreary but room was nice. Great place to stay if you’re just looking for rest and relaxation before a flight. Didn’t have a chance to use pool or workout facilities. Airport shuttle runs every ½ hour. Nice restaurant right next door offering reasonably priced dinners.

Stayed here a few weeks ago for 6 nights and all was well. Stayed again 2 weeks later and the room was great. Had some issues with one staff member who apparently doesn't know how to make a reservation. Fortunately the co-workers were able to handle the situation. My fellow co-workers and I stay at Holiday Inns about 150 nights a year. We have never had an issue like this, as far as screwing up credit cards, priority cards, rates, and names. The young lady handled herself professionally to fix the problems of another gentleman's mistake. she called Priority Club to help us out. I would recommend the management give proper instructions on how to reserve rooms to certain employees.

Overall, I was very happy with my stay. The hotel is very convenient to PHL and offers 24 hour shuttle service which is a great benefit. The rooms are modest, but clean, and very comfortable. I'll be back.

I arrived in town for a business meeting and wanted to check in early to grab a rest before my long day. It was about 10:30 am. I came in and the young man at the counter greeted me with the nicest smile and warmest greeting. He told me he had a room available and checked me right in. Breakfast was over but the lovely lady and gentleman handling breakfast told me to come right over and get whatever I wanted and even offered to go into the kitchen and get me anything I needed. they helped me pack some things to take to my room and encouraged me to call down if I needed anything else. The entire staff is warm and friendly. My room was clean and fresh. I will definately put this in my favorites!

Stayed here last night for New Years Eve and I couldn't have chosen a better hotel to stay at. It was right next to The Deck where we were going for New Years Eve. The rooms were very clean, comfortable beds,hot shower water what more can you ask for. I can't wait to return.

I had business in West Chester, PA. but did not want to fight the morning rush hour traffic to get to my morning flight out of Philadelphia so I looked for a moderately priced hotel near the airport. This Holiday Inn Express is 5 minutes from PHL and is surprisingly quiet, comfortable and clean. The rooms are well appointed and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. It is also one of the more reasonably priced hotels close to the airport. It has easy access to the highway and is on the waterfront if you want to take a stroll out back to enjoy the view. A great location for business travelers needing easy access to the airport and downtown Philadelphia!

Room Tip: I had a first floor room and it was quiet and comfortable.
