Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by walker170 Nice Time!
This Holiday Inn was very nice and had a very helpful and professional staff. Things were very crazy the weekend we stayed with a packed hotel, a couple of weddings and only one functioning elevator. The staff handled all issues very well and very calm. The breakfast was better than most, but you better get there early because the seating area fills up fast. Overall a nice hotel with a good location and a great staff that makes your stay a special experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by acrVT1 Good hotel for Philly vacation
I often come to Philadelphia for business: this was a first for vacation. We chose this HIE Penns Landing hotel because it was in the Historic District -- we were able to walk to the US Mint, Independence Hall, Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross House, Ben Franklin grave, etc. We also used the Ferry system less than a mile down the street to visit the Aquarium and New Jersey Battleship in Camden. Location-wise the hotel was excellent! it was also excellent for other reasons: clean room, responsive and kind front desk staff and shuttle drivers, good maid service. Two things to mention: how busy this hotel is -- the front desk staff are going non-stop servicing people, how do they keep up? The breakfast room is also non-stop. Quality of food is fine, being a platinum Holiday Inn stayer, I am a little tired of the same old choices for a free breakfast, but that's not the hotel's fault, and all items were cooked and presented well. Good coffee! One downside tot he visit: an elevator was down the duration of our visit, which in such a busy hotel, where the staff also use the main elevator system, created quite a back up and line at times to get to the room. We were on the 4th floor and would often climb the stairs up or down to avoid the long wait. All in all, however, I would recommend this hotel highly and would stay here again when vacationing in the area.
