I go to Philly several times a year. Usually stay at the Hampton Inn on Race and 13th, not too far from this Holiday Inn, but thought I'd try a different hotel for this trip. There are many good things about this property. The location could not be better, in the midst of everything Center City has to offer. Check-in was fast and the front desk personnel are extremely helpful (and patient) with giving directions and answering questions. Also, the cleaning crews and maintenance personnel are very nice. I took advantage of the free breakfast one morning, not too bad, a few hot items like omelets, bacon, biscuits, pancakes. But, there are some awesome bakeries/cafes within minutes of the hotel and I chose to eat breakfast away fron the hotel the rest of my stay. The room (15th floor) was very clean and quite spacious. The bathrooms are modern and roomy. The flat screen HD TV is really good. The only negative is the noise factor. Hallway noise wasn't too bad, but the noise from the streets below was aggravating. Sure it's a city environment and especially on the weekend there was a lot of yelling, sirens, etc. Fortunately , the rooms have the "old-timey" AC units in the wall so I just turned it on at night to drown out the noise. I would recommend this hotel with the understanding that you will have to sleep with the AC running.
