We came to visit our son who lives in Northern Liberties. This was very close to his apartment. Great location near Old City. Hotel is clean, breakfast good and staff polite. Only negative I have is that I left a pair of boots at the hotel and they were not turned in by the housekeeping staff. We only stayed overnight...

If you could please contact the hotel and ask to speak with myself (Aazhe'e) or any manager on duty to take care of this issue. We would love to get this resolved,...

My best friend and I planned a two day trip to Philly and didn't want to spend a boat load of money. This hotel fit the bill really well. We booked flight and hotel through Expedia and paid just over $200/pp for both. Now that's a deal. Yes, request a room on the river side. Make use of the hotel's...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Penn's Landing because of its location. It was very close to the Fillmore Arena that my daughter and her friend were going to for a concert. It was only 1 mile away.... plus they offer a convenient free shuttle service. This is great for travelers from out of town who don't know...

Good location for touring. Nice Breakfast included. Had a great room facing the river with lots of room and two queen beds.

Everything was as good as I would hope. That includes being clean and properly appointed. No complaints about the room at all. Hot water was there! The continental breakfast had a better than average selection which included cinnamon buns that were too good. My only complaint is the same complaint I have at almost every hotel. That is: the scrambled...

Nice hotel. Beautiful fireplace in lobby. Clean room. Good location for Penns Landing. Good free breakfast in morning that included scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, cereals, toast/bagels, pastries. Parking was $30 and have in and out access. Walking distance from a nice Italian restaurant (Ristorante La Veranda), Bluecross river rink, Dave and Busters and more.

Staff were friendly & helpful. The room was clean. Breakfast was good. Location wasn't as central as we'd hoped however, was only a 5-10minute walk to old city where most of the historic sites are located. Not a lot to do around the hotel. A bit of noise from the traffic below but mainly from other hotel guests!

Stayed here for a business meeting. This hotel is very well located next to the bridge right on the river. Being a top tier member, not much of an upgrade. The rooms otherwise are good.

A good distance from the city so easy to walk in - our room was level with the freeway and felt like it was in touching distance - unbelievably noisy. What is also poor is they don't mention you need to park here which costs an extra $30 a day. My advice is stay way outside the city on a...
