Great hotel in downtown Philadelphia. Center point for most Philly attractions and friendly neighborhood. The hotel staff was super courteous and friendly. Rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable (pillows could have been more firm). Great variety for the complimentary breakfast. Convenient parking and reasonable rates for center city.

Room Tip: They offer discount rates for family members of patients at Thomas Jefferson Hospital (within walkin...

The room was nice and spacious. There were some issues with cleanliness in the bathroom. Outside of that room and service was fine. Located downtown with restaurants and bars everywhere. Nothing much around for kids.

Hotel is centrally located to a lot of Philadelphia's attractions. it is just a short walk to Philadelphia's historical sites; The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, National Constitution Center and Betsy Ross House. Hotel is starting to look a bit tired so hopefully will receive an upgrade in the next year or two. Staff were very good.

This hotels is centrally located.

Although the lobby was in need of updating, the rooms were sufficient and clean. I must admit though, I was surprised that the rooms didn't have a small refrigerator/micro as are found in most Holiday Inn Express hotels. A quick call to the front desk, and they delivered us a small refrigerator to use during our stay (along with extra towels). Our room overlooked a side street with a rather unsavory view of an adult bookstore. Thankfully, my children didn't seem to notice. The breakfast area is very nice and well-equipped. The front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend leaving your vehicle parked (given the cost of parking around town) while you are at this hotel. I had no trouble flagging a cab while we were there and $6 got us to the historical areas of town. If everyone in your party is able to walk, everything is well-within walking distance (including Reading Terminal Market, which is a must-visit).

My husband and I recently spent a day in Philadelphia and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Philadelphia. We had an incident happen around midnight where there was a mixup with the rooms. Other guests who were just checking in at at time were also assigned to our room, but since we had locked the door from the inside they were not able to get into the room with their keys. Management worked hard to get the other guests into a room with as little intrusion to our stay as possible. The next morning, the woman at the front desk, Teri, was extremely understanding and courteous about the entire situation. Overall everyone on staff at this hotel was extremely professional and despite the mixup, we left impressed by the service we received during our stay. We would absolutely stay again.

In the historic part of Philadelphia within walking distance of most attractions. Very nice and helpful staff. The rooms were about what I would expect for an HEI, only bigger. Parking garage next door made it very convenient. I'd go back.

Room Tip: It's in a typical noisy city. Get a room up high to minimize street noise.

Stay here for a mini vacation, 4 days. Central location for most of the sites you'll want to see in Philadelphia. I don't mind walking, so you can get the feel and look of the area. Most sites, Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Eastern State, Rocky Statue... All within 1/2 mile or so walking, easy to navigate to and if want to taking a cab isn't to expensive for these short trips. Like I said though, with the hotels location, walking is easy and let's you find all the hidden gems!
