Pack your walking shoes. The City of Brotherly Love is best explored by foot, and guests of our Holiday Inn Express® Philadelphia hotels will enjoy all the rich history, beautiful architecture and historic sites they encounter as they tour this charming city.
Kick off your Philadelphia hotel stay with a visit to Center City, one of the biggest business districts in the U.S. and a popular tourist destination, thanks to an abundance of shopping, dining and entertainment options. The observation deck at City Hall offers great views of the Philly skyline, and the celebrated Art Museum District, where you'll find the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Academy of Natural Sciences, Franklin Institute and Rodin Museum, is a short walk or trolley ride away. Next, head to Rittenhouse Square. This culturally vibrant area offers cafes, boutiques, art galleries, theatres and more.
Looking to brush up on your American history? Then a trip to Independence Mall is definitely in order. See the Liberty Bell up close or take a tour of Independence Hall, the birthplace of American democracy. There are dozens of landmarks and historical buildings in this area, so set aside a couple of hours - if not a whole day - for sight seeing, then stick around after dark and watch the Old City come alive with restaurants, bars and night clubs.
Of course, no visit to our Philadelphia hotels is complete without sampling the city's most famous culinary offering - the Philly cheese steak. It's sold all over, but most will argue that you have to go South Philly for the real thing, and Pat's King of Steaks is where this gooey, cheesy steak and onion sandwich was born. Round out your Philadelphia hotel stay with tickets to a big game. With several professional sports teams calling Philadelphia home, including the Phillies, 76'ers, Eagles, and Flyers, this town is made for sports enthusiasts.

Good place to stay
The room was clean and everything worked. Great location - within walking distance to a lot of sights and very close to bus stops and subway. The staff was great! Everyone was very friendly,[More] personable and helpful. The breakfast was good with lots to choose from. The guy at the front desk (I think his name was Jude) even scheduled a cab pick up for me to the airport because I had to change my flight out due to bad weather. The cab arrived on time. I would stay here again if I ever come back to Philadelphia. I highly recommend this hotel. I had a great stay - Thanks :-)[Less]
We arrived at 6:45 am after an overnight flight with two children. When we walked in the first person we meet at the desk was so sweet and pleasant. We were exhausted, but she made us feel great.[Less]
Overall great experience
Really comfy beds, great location, and a great pool. I wish the free breakfast was a bit more organized, it turns into a mad house around 10 am.[Less]
