Very comfortable for two adults and two two teenagers. We would stay here again. Roomy breakfast area, clean hotel, friendly staff. Walking distance to Independence Hall and easy stop for Uber to pick us up and drop us off. It was also walking distance from a SEPTA stop where we took the subway to the Amtrak station.

Very nice one night stay. Room was clean and comfortable. Beds were nice. Staff was great. Convenient location and proximity to subway. Two cautionary comments: First everything seemed expensive to me including the $27 parking next door. Second, the complimentary breakfast was fine except they ran out of coffee and took too long to replace.

4:30pm on the second day of our stay, we came back from all day activity to relax. Our room wasn't ready, no one ever came in to clean it...I mean 4:30pm? seriously? and every weekend, there's a marching band parade going on outside. It is so loud that our children are having a tough time falling asleep at 11:30PM. Hotel... More

Hotel is updated, the room was clean. Comfy beds. This is right downtown Philly. Perfect location for walking to near by shopping, food, and site seeing. The only downfall is the water on the 16th floor takes really long to get hot.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We chose it due to the fact that it was within walking distance of the Philadelphia Amtrak station and the historical sites that we hoped to visit.

When I first walked into the lobby, I thought it looked a bit outdated and worn down. Luckily, when I got to my room, I was much more satisfied. The rooms are a bit larger than many downtown hotels, which was nice. We had a great view of Philadelphia from our room. Everything seemed to work well in the room,... More

I stay at a lot of HIE's and I would classify this one as "okay." The breakfast offerings are the same as most HIE sites. So it is nice to have something right in the hotel, but it is "okay." The room was a good size, but I barely got any sleep because of all night sewer work with jackhammers.... More

I have to be honest. Holiday Inn Express is not usually my first choice for lodging, but this hotel changed any previous perception I'd had of the brand. Of course the location in Midtown was ideal for a quick theatre trip and a history lesson, but what got me most was the service and the accommodations themselves. My check in... More
