Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ladysandpiper Exceptional value and service!
We had a comfortable and pleasant two day stay at Holiday Inn Express in Ft. Washington, PA. The dining room food was very good although the service was a bit slow with only two waitresses. We will stay here again and again! The front desk staff was very accommodating and responses to questions and directions about town and to tourist sites-they even provided printed directions to attractions of interest!

We like this hotel because it is so close to the train station. It is clean and comfortable. The staff is great about letting us check in early so we can go into the city. We were disappointed that the lounge was closed on Sat. night at 11:45PM. Overall it is very good.

Me and boyfriend stayed here for the weekend and we absolutely loved it. Friday night at Hollys hotel bar was packed with party people which was awesome and a DJ. Good service, good food, clean room, and friendly staff, I will stay here again. Thanks!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jakeman Mostly good with some exceptions
One of the issues was the lack of water pressure in the room and that it took about 5 minutes for the water to get hot. Otherwise the room was great. I would not recommend the restaurant. I sat down at the bar to order and the gentleman next to me had ordered sweet potato fries and got regular fries. This should have been an indication but I decided to eat as I was hungry. I ordered a NY strip medium rare. 45 minutes later it came out. It was well done. The waitress apologized about the wait as there was a party elsewhere in the hotel. I was understanding. I was not going to send the steak back, but I did make mention to it to the waitress. She went ahead and put in another order. It also came out well done. At this point she credited me for the steak portion of my dinner. The staff was great. The room was comfortable. Just a few problems. I will probably not stay there in the future. If I do, I will definitely not eat in the restaurant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Fabulous pillows!!
I don't know what it is about their pillows, but for my much whip-lashed neck, they're GREAT! Staff is helpful and friendly (they'll print boarding passes for you) and my only complaint is the noisy fans on the heat/cool units.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pjc417 Not for families with children
The staff were accommodating and polite - took care of every request with a smile. Rooms were clean and well maintained. However, the pool was only open until 8:00pm even during a heatwave. Front desk first claimed there were no lifeguards, but there is none during the day either. Then blamed in on no outdoor lighting - but we could see the pool area well lite from our room on the 7th floor. We arrived with a 12 girl softball team and played during the days, could have used a nice dip in the pool after dinner, but that was not an option for us. So if you want to use the pool... find some place else.

This is a nice hotel, but could use some updating. The room was clean and comfortable, special requests were honored and I was recognized as an IHG Rewards Club Platinum member. The location is very convenient to highways and the SEPTA regional rail station is very close for easy travel to Center City Philadelphia. I will stay here again when I'm in the area.

I like this hotel. I've stayed several times and always found it comfortable, quiet and very, very clean.
I even stay here when another hotel is closer and more convenient to my morning destination. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
The 5-7 manager's coctail hour is a definate plus and the breakfast is pretty good.

The staff was very nice, they said they were waiting for me although I arrived after 9:00pm and called me by name, which was nice. I would come back and visit there again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by weddingdisaster Disaster in customer service
Prior to arrival, the hotel verbally claimed they would place us with my friend's wedding party but they did not and they couldn't change the room when we arrived. They also promised my husband to have flowers waiting in the room for our anniversary. They were not there. The manager said she would be there when I arrived Friday afternoon to adjust my rate, but she had already left for the weekend. My friend requested a crib when she booked the room. When she arrived, she was told there were none available. Her 7 week old had to sleep on the floor. Overall, a disaster in customer service. I would not recommend this hotel.

The most memorable part of my stay was the excellent service and the friendliness of the staff from the reception desk, to the housekeeping staff, to the servers in the restaurant . The room was clean. I ordered a hot breakfast to go. It was packaged in a nice carry-out box with everything I needed inside. Plus, the food was actually hot!! Great job!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Apett Check-in was exceptional with the two young ladies who last names begins with H. and housekeepers were great.
The best part of this stay were the check-in process and housekeepers that we encountered on our floor. The room was not as comfortable as we have experienced at other Holiday Inn properties. We had an excecutive king bed with three small pillows for two adults. Our breakfast experience fell short with the cold food and some discourteous servers. Sadly, we left there tired and hungry.

I have been a consistent guest, staying at least twice a month,for the past 6 months. The Staff is friendly and very accommodating and have been consistent in their presentation and customer service since my tenure. I suggest you choose Holiday Inn - FW for your regular travel days to "catch up and rest".

I enjoy coming to this property. The staff in all departments take the time to smile, say Hi and ask if I need anything. I have been staying at this location when I am in PHL for 9 years now. I would recommend to anyone.

I enjoyed my stay at your hotel, and I will recommend it to anyone who asks. Every one of your staff members that I met was very friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfast was exceptional, the room was roomy and clean, and the cocktail hour for Priority Club members was very enjoyable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NextGuv Always great service
I've stayed at the Fort Washington property quite a few times over the years and have seen it improve with renovations and upgrades. The staff is always friendly and helpful and open to suggestions or to answer any questions.
The location is convenient to the Turnpike and only one exit away from the Cross County connector, making it easy to get to Philadelphia, Wilmington, Trenton, and Harrisburg by the highways. Walking distance to the SEPTA Regional Rail station, right behind the hotel.
Though an older hotel, it is well maintained and the staff is usually quick to fix anything that comes up. The only drawbacks are when they are extremely busy there can be a bit of noise that an older building tends to amplify.
The people in the restaurant, lounge, at the front desk, housekeeping, and management are all stellar! Thanks for taking care of us when we visit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DallasTraveler Needs Updated
The staff of this location is their best asset. The rooms themselves need to be updated, including the wallpaper in the hallways. There was an exhaust fan for the building above my room that ran 24/7 and was extremely loud and vibrated the entire room. The explanation for this was that the building was old, and all of the ducts were connected to each other, so no resolution available. The mattresses themselves also need updated, as mine had a huge dip in the middle and all of the padding was gone because of its age. I would not recommend this location because of these attributes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler281 Not exactly fine dining
The desk staff and our room were excellent, as always in our experience at Holiday Inns. The food, however, was very disappointing, even for hotel food.
The hotel advertises a restaurant, but beware. Their dinner "restaurant" consists of a few tables on the dance floor in the bar area, so poorly lit that it was almost impossible to read the menus. The wait service was an overworked bartender, who had to see to the patrons at the crowded bar, wait on tables, and run back and forth to the kitchen, which was across a hall in the opposite direction from the bar. The food itself was greasy and poorly cooked. I overheard people at the next table comment that they weren't impressed with their salads, so I'm guessing that evn the "fresh" food wasn't so great.
Imagine our surprise the next morning to find that the breakfast room is a large, well-lit restaurant. In the interests of cheaping out on help, the mangers decided not to use this lovely room for dinner. And I should add that the hotel was full for the weekend because of a conference there.
And that leads me to the most disappointing part of the eating experience there. Every table in the breakfast room (20 or more tables!) was littered with dirty dishes. We had to hunt for a table that looked less cluttered than the others. The only person working was one woman who was overwhelmed. Occasionally someone came out from the kitchen to help, but that was it. The cash register attendant did practically zilch to help her bus the tables, in spite of the fact that there was lots of time between customers.
Which brings me to the final insult - the pain at the register. The food, if it had been palatable, might have ameliorated the appalling mess, but it was awful. Cold, soggy, greasy, tasteless. And we were charged $25 for two half-eaten plates.
The management here needs a kick in the butt. With a full house, they could have afforded to schedule a few extra employees. I'd stay here again on the strength of the Holiday Inn room appointments and the efficiency of the main desk, but I would NOT eat here. I would guess that even the vending machines have old food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by StreimTime Friendliest Staff of any hotel
I was staying here on an extended stay with my company, and the staff was just incredible. The building could use a few minor upgrades/renovations. For instance, some of the plumbing, lighting, and floors definitely show their age. Other than that, the restaurant serves decent food, the staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and my stay definitely felt like home. I would recommend this hotel for extended stay guests any day! Mr. Iverson runs an incredible establishment.

I have been staying at the Ft Washington Holiday Inn frequently over the past several months and happy to recommend this Hotel. The Front desk staff are friendly, efficient and knowledgeable and never without a smile. Housekeeping personnel are great, Management is caring and the Wait Staff at Holly's are the best. My work will return me to this area frequently and I will make this hotel my "Home" base.

I had stayed in the property 4-5 times prior to this last visit.
I am impressed by the improvements. It looks better and the room seemed fresher. The evening social bar was a nice touch and the complimentary breakfast buffet was the best I've had in a Holiday inn. Nice Job.

I was very impressed with the owner/manager at the hotel. There was a welcome cocktail party on the Priority Level Floor, when I arrived. The gentleman was
tending the bar. The next morning he was in the lobby greeting everyone as they came off the elevator. I have never seen a hands on manager before in any other hotel. That along with the
fine service and great room, I will be sure to tell everyone about this property. First Class!!

This staff is second to none! Great food with great prices. Every night there are multiple specials. This staff will always go out of their way for you, and it does not matter what department they work in. You can just say they are like your family. I can only hope that the next property I stay at can be at least 50% as good.
