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.

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.

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.
