Great location, great experience

This was a great location! Walking distance to the historical sites, and right in the middle of shopping/dining options. Right next to Reading Terminal Market, which has LOTS of great food options. Would recommend!

Philly Car Show Overnite stay

Hilton Garden Inn was very close to the convention center for the auto show, Reading Terminal, and Jefferson Station which made easy walking even on a cold windy day. The staff was professional and helpful to our questions about our accommodations, breakfast and amenities . Our buffet breakfast was awesome! Blueberry stuffed pancakes, a variety of pastries, cereals and fresh fruit. The service was excellent.

very nice stay with kids

I treated my nephews to a holiday Xmas trip. The Micro & Refrigerator were a wonderful savings. We could see part of the New Years Eve fireworks from our window. We had a great time.

Great way to start the new year!

The location of this hotel was great for our New Year's celebration. We went for the Mummer's Parade and were delighted to find we were right next to the Convention Center and close to city hall and the parade route. They allowed us to check in early and check out late. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very large and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location for visitors without a car

Stayed two nights at the Hilton. The room was clean, and was equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, and small fridge. But the nicest thing about the room was its ideal location. If you are visiting Philly and don't plan to rent a car, this is the ideal location--immediately adjacent to the Reading Terminal Market which is my favorite Philly landmark, and just blocks away from Independence Hall in one direction and the Philadelphia Art Museum and Rocky steps in the other direction. And there is a taxi stand right outside the hotel lobby, so if you need to get to the airport or run to Pat's or Geno's for a cheesesteak, there will always be a cab ready to take you wherever you'd like to go.

Best food is in the Reading Market Terminal. Just explore the market and you'll find a great selection of all types of foods. Something for everyone. And the Hilton is basically on top of the Market, so it is very easy to just roll out of bed and grab a bite.
