No hot water

Surprised to find out that hotel guests have to pay $25 to park on a Sunday night. Then woke up at 5:00 am to find that we did not have any hot water. Staff was average at best. We were in Philadelphia for surgery on Monday morning no time to wait for somebody to fix the water problem.

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.

First time in town for the Budweiser M.I.A. Festival

This is my first time staying at a Holiday Inn Express. The only reason I gave this hotel 3-stars instead of 5 is because of their check-in policy & coordination. This was my first time in town for the Budweiser Made in America Festival. The check-in time is at 4 p.m. and it should be thoroughly & repeatedly noted. Do not try to leave your phone number & have them call you as soon as a/your room is available (They'll just pussyfoot around and not call). And you cannot even downgrade your room to check in sooner. YOU CANNOT CHECK IN BEFORE 4 P.M.!!! So if you have to attend a concert on the same day as your check in date, please be aware of that (Try to check in the day before or plan to check-in after the festival). Unfortunately, myself and several others learned the hard way.,,, Lesson learned. Otherwise, the hotel was decent.

Noisy

The location is great in relation to sightseeing; however, it is right next to a very busy freeway and, therefore, very noisy even with the air-conditioner going full tilt!

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.

Average, basic hotel

There was nothing terribly wrong about this old town modern hotel, but then there was nothing perfectly right about it either. Located right slap bang on the expressway, it was close to Old town, but not immediately accessible. We had to walk--and I like walking, but if I were on my own at 1am, it would have been creepy--along the expressway to the Seaport Museum before we could find a staircase to takes us to the bridge and cross in Old Town, Philly. So location-wise it wasn't the best. The room was modern and clean, the breakfast was fine. Checking in was a bit of a cluster, but I have no real complaints.
