The perfect spot in Center City Philadelphia

Everyone was friendly, helpful and courteous. Room was typical, but clean and spacious. Location was ideal - convenient to transportation and most spots of interest in center city. Nice to have the breakfast bar, so could just wake up and not worry about coffee or morning meal. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

Parking Cost a lot

Hotel is perfect and at nice location. But Parking is not free and it cost 25 USD for overnight parking. So overall customer has to pay a lot considering Hotel booking + Parking. that sucks

Great Location, Great Stay!

The hotel was clean, friendly staff and it didn't have any hidden fees. After researching several hotels, Holiday Inn Express has the best, cheapest parking with $25.00 per night with unlimited in/out access. They also provide a free breakfast buffet with a lot of food. Not the best I ever tasted but there is something there for everyone and every diet. It is conveniently located and we will definitely stay here again!

Good Place Downton

Perfectly satisfactory. This was not a luxurious escape, but a clean, quiet and reasonably priced hotel in Midtown, Philly. It is very convenient to Jefferson, Rothman Institutes and is in a fun neighborhood. Wouldn't use it to show off the city to friends, but would stay again for another interview on a modest budget.

Great stay!

Stayed here for an interview I had at a nearby hospital. Very friendly staff and they accommodated me well. The hotel itself was very clean and comfortable. Had a nice view from the room too. Will stay there again.

Decent but a bit hi for off weekend

Check in was easy. $25 for parking? Isn't anything covered anymore. $151 a night is a bit high for an off weekend and to also get charged for parking. Overall the room was comfortable and clean but shower was tiny and annoying.

Location!

Great location... within walking distance of the historic area... Figuring out where to park was a challenge... the employee out front could have been more helpful in directing cars into the parking garage next door... instead, he made eye contact and walked away :(
