Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MarkLikesHolidayInn Stay at H.I. Philly, 06/05/2013
My stay was very pleasant. I am sure glad you folks have a shuttle. Also, I want to Thank the older gentleman for picking me up from the airport.
Con: That was the first time in over 25 stays at a Holiday Inn that I was asked for a $25 deposit for room insurance. (The hotel stay was already paid for by my company) "I am not going to have a Frat party in my room!!!!!!!" I am middle-aged and boring.
If I am in a similar circumstance (pre-Flight at Philly), I will stay at the Philly Airport Holiday Inn.

Not recommend this location for anyone.. Bed was uncomfortable and TV was never working. I called down to the front desk about the TV. Some came and change the wire, he left and same thing. It was like Direct TV while in a heavy storm, but it was a nice day and evening. One of the worst Holiday Inn Express I ever stayed in.
The little lady at the breakfast area was the best part of the stay

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by G8rEd All great except.....
Staff was awesome, rooms were clean, area is quiet, and the shuttle service is great. Don't be fooled by the location. There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and the shuttle driver will even take you. Great family atmosphere. BUT, the hotel appears to have a policy that allows employees to eat breakfast in the morning. Do employees really need to take up table space, talk on their phones, while guests have to stand because of a lack of table space?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike9953 Great Staff & Great Room
I often fly from the Philadelphia Airport and I always stay at the Holiday Inn at Essington. it is a newly renovated hotel and It is a great value and the staff is extremely courteous. The last time I was there, I forgot whether I locked the car or not. I was already at the airport and I didn't know anyone in the area to stop and check the car. I quickly thought of Kyle who greeted me at the desk in the morning when I was checking out. I called him and asked if he would be able to check the car. He told me it would be no problem. He even took the time to call me back and assure me that everything was ok. I can't thank him enough for putting my mind at ease. Thanks and see you again soon!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 All you would ask for in a hotel
Before and after flying from the Philadelphia Airport, this clean, quiet, comfortable hotel is as good as it gets. It's close to the airport; the shuttle service is reliable; the staff is courteous; and the breakfast is varied, tasty, and overseen by an amazingly positive
woman whose friendly demeanor brightens any morning. Oh, and the rates are competitive. Finally, check out their generous arrangements for leaving your car for an extended time.

My husband and I stayed here over Mother's day weekend and we like to commend first the housekeeping staff Sandra, and Dolores for the oustanding job, our room was always clean and fresh.. Second the front desk staff..Tarshia and Anthony,,Tarshia worked with me on combining two separate reservations so we can stay in the same room. Anthony deserves a promotion and raise his knowledge of the area and his friendliness was refreshing....Overall the experience was wonderful. I use to live in the area until I moved out west. When I come back to visit, I would most certainly stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by McFreebird Excellent rate in the Philly area
This was my 2nd stay at this hotel in the past 6 months. I really enjoyed being close enough to the city to drive in for a special event, but far enough away to get a great rate and be able to relax with a stroll next to the water. The rooms are modern, the staff is excellent and the stay is always great. This will be my new home away from home for all Philly trips.
