I visited here, unfortunately, during a week of some big event in Philly. I'm not sure what was going on but this was the only place in Philly with rooms less than $400. We had booked a 2 queen sized bed hotel. My girlfriend and I check in and they tell us that they messed up, but they'll either bring...

The hotel is in a great location near all the amenities a city of Philadelphia size would have to offer. The building is showing its age, a lot of the furniture seems to be late-90. The overnight parking rate is excellent. The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful during both check in and checks out. Plan on staying...

Room was nice, no refrigerator, 14th floor view of street, but the bathroom was terrible. Sink area was outside tub and toilet area and the toilet was so close to the wall and cramped that one could get hurt with the toilet paper holder.

The hotel is central to everything in downtown Philadelphia. The rooms are very comfortable and large for a big city. Breakfast offerings are extensive. The staff at the hotel was absolutely outstanding from the breakfast managers to the desk staff, people were kind and interested in our activities.

I recently stayed at the holiday Inn for two nights during a snow storm. Everyone was very friendly, and the rooms have been nicely refurbished since my last stay a few years ago.

This hotel is in absolutely prime real estate, in a relatively modern building but it was never intended to be anything more than "just okay". This becomes obvious as soon as you walk into the cramped little lobby. The rooms themselves are big, relatively clean, have comfortable beds, and great views on the higher floors. However, the decor is outdated...
