For the past four years, I have stayed at the hotel while my daughter attended the University of Pennsylvania. I have always enjoyed the location of the hotel, it is near everything. The staff is always so friendly and helpful. The room itself was always clean and very comfortable.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. My daughter has graduated so my visits will end. :-(
I appreciated the discounted rate for being a proud Penn Parent.
Kudos to a great staff!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Put us next to noisy room
I was told a long term loud family had been next to my room long term with a screaming child all day and night long. No sleep for 2 nights. Horrible experience. Who assigns a guest a room after knowing that terrible noise is next door?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RobinBird Good stay
Great value for a large city. Really appreciated day pass to local gym (as there is not one on the premises). Breakfast was clean and well-stocked. Check-in was fast. Parking was reasonably priced for location. Only complaints were that the halls could use some updating and the mattress was too soft for our liking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RFB1 Great in-town Holiday Inn Express
This was our second visit to this property, and an overall great experience. The only downsides were that the mattress was uncomfortable. IMO it was time for it to be replaced. Also, the room was right next to the ice machine. Normally that would be a good thing, but it was noisy all night long.

We had a great experience in your hotel. The staff was very helpful. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Breakfast bar was yummy. We were there with a 9 and 6 yr old. They loved the pancake making machine.

Friendly helpfull staff, nice room and a wonderful breakfast.
Only problem I had was the A/C , which kept freezing up and shuting off. Finally settled for the fan . Otherwise a good value and close to many attractions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LW3141 Great location for my needs
I am from out of state, and I had outpatient surgery at a hospital near the hotel. Instead of leaving my house at 4am on the day of surgery, I checked into the hotel the night before, went to the hospital the next morning, came back to the hotel, spent a second night there, went back to the hospital next day for a post-op checkup, and checked out later that morning. It saved me the hassle of traveling back and forth, and the 2 nights at the hotel were much cheaper than 1 night in the hospital. The hotel was in walking distance of eateries, a food store, and drugstores, so the person staying with me could easily get me anything I needed. The staffers were terrific, the front desk called for taxis, and the lady at the breakfast bar couldn't have been more patient and helpful. This was by no means a pleasure trip, but staying at the hotel was the best decision I could have made.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingMusician Security pounded on the door during business call
I asked for a late checkout the night before and was told I could stay till 3PM. I chose to use the afternoon to make business phone calls. After finally getting through on an important call security pounded on the door at about 1PM. I had to interupt my call and tell them I had a late checkout. Afterwards I called and spoke to the Manager after being on hold at the front desk for awhile. The Manager informed me that the late checkout was entered incorrectly in the computer. There must be some communication and personel issues at this Hotel, because it never should have happened. It is unfortunate because usually Holiday Inn gives great service. I am now skeptical.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TSST Great experience, will come back
Breakfast should have had better plates than the given styrofoam/paper plates which kept on moving when you used knife and fork.
Toothbrush and paste should have been in the room rather than "if you have forgotten, ask at the front desk" note.
However we enjoyed our stay with you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ginger67 Accomodating staff
Because my train schedule conflicted with the check in and check out timing i asked if i could check in early and check out late. There was no problem with this and I was grateful. I was even more grateful when the day I was to leave my train was cancelled due to the Boston Marathon Bombing. Even though the hotel was completely booked, I was allowed to stay another night in my room. I very much appreciate that the staff allowed me to extend my stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brendy48 Absolutely NOTHING Wrong with this Place!
My husband and I stayed three nights on our road trip to several cities/states. This Holiday Inn Express was smack dab in the middle of walking to Rittenhouse Square, the Historic District and other places - restaurants, bars and shops where everywhere nearby. The staff at this hotel was superior, especially the lady that worked in the breakfast room. The room was large and very clean, breakfast was good and beds were very comfortable.
As others have mentioned, the bathroom is small, but the sink/mirror/vanity area outside the bathroom was large. For those who drive, parking (for an additional fee) is attached next door. We would definitely stay at this hotel again! By the way, out of all the cities/states we visited on our road trip, Philly was the BEST!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MrTea The usual Holiday Inn Express
Not really different from any of the others except that being in central Philadelphia the cost of parking is exorbitant - $25 per day, but there is a shortage of parking.
If you don't need a car in the middle of Philly don't bring one. Otherwise if you've been to one HI Express you've been to them all. Rooms are OK, breakfast has the usually rather limited choice but is OK,

Hotel and staff were very friendly they couldn't do enough for you. The room was very large and the beds were so nice I wanted to take them home but I did think the hotel would like that. The breakfast was hotel breakfast. My son got us the rooms for my wife's and I birthday so we could spend the two days in Philadelphia. We went to a great place to eat called The Good Dog Bar on South 15th street good food and fast serviceservice

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PSMDancer Complimentary Breakfast
The room was quiet and comfortable and conveniently located.
I had to get to the train station before breakfast opened and was
denied a take-out breakfast. I asked for muffin, juice, fruit and coffee.
The attendant at night said "They do not do that ." and the attendant in the morning said "No." I paid for the room and expected to get something "to-go." He called me a taxi and I left for the train station.
Up to that time, all went well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ManOnTheVergeNow Great location and value
I had stayed here a few times several years ago and was pleased to find that the quality of the rooms and service was on par with prior visits. It's a great location in Center City and close to many excellent restaurants. The parking garage which is operated by a separate company is a bit awkward but not an obstacle to returning if I need to stay in Center City again.

Delicious cinnamon buns, omelets bagels, bacon, fruit, cereal and much much more!! We will definitely stay here from now on while visting Philly!! Thank you Holiday Inn Express for the fine accomodations!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MichNY Almost Great
This hotel would have been great except for noise. The walls are paper thin. We could hear people talking in the next room and their tv. Turning on the fan blocked some of it. The room was big and comfy. Food was average but plentiful. The staff was great. Especially the women at breakfast. If the room was sound proofed I would give this hotel a perfect score.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mapreader2 Great location but be sure car headlights r turned off if parking
The parking valet parked our car, we tipped him, the next day the battery was dead! The valet was very nice and helped us find jumper cables to start the battery... but didn't seem to realize that HE should have turned off the headlights. Check your headlights! Other than that, the breakfast was great, room was comfortable, & this is a great location for some of our favorite museums.
