Great Location

You usually can't go wrong at a HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS. Staff is always friendly, breakfast is always good with a very nice selection. Only reason I knocked off a star is because of the $25 parking fee and also the rooms facing the highway are very noisy from traffic noise, even in the middle of the night you could hear the loud tractor trailers going past, that compiled with the fact that our room was also located behind the elevate made for a very noisy night. Stay here for sure but don't let them give you one of the rooms near the elevator or facing the highway.

Great Staff

Staff was great. Breakfast was simple but very good. Those breakfast folks worked hard to keep everybody happy. We did not have a car but bus and hotel van got us everywhere we wanted to go. I would not drive to this location. Hotel parking was always full and seemed difficult to find empty spots.

Good food close by. Go to Market Sheet and search. Chart house (on the river) is way overpriced for what they serve and despite what the hotel manager says, you need a reservation to skip the 45 minute wait where they send you downstairs to have overpriced drinks.

Staff very helpful

It was a pleasant experience and better than I anticipated. Staff was very helpful and responsive. The shuttle was a great addition. Got us where we needed to go without hassle. For the money this hotel is a hidden gem. It was a short half mile from old city aand lots of fun activities. Would definitely stay here in the future.

Good

The rooms were nice with comfortable bed. However, the wheelchair accessible shower left the whole floor wet.

Family Trip

This was the only hotel I could find in our budget. The area is not great and the room was quite dirty but it worked for us to visit Philly with the family. The shuttle dropped us off on the historic district. We had to cab back because the shuttle does not operate during the middle of the day (before 4) and we had to get back to make it to a Phillies game. The breakfast is ample but very crowded.

Great for night out in Old City

This hotel is located only blocks from the heart of Old City Philadelphia. The room was comfortable and the staff was great. Great value for your money.
