Located in the old city, it is close to many bus lines and the Franklin Market line. We have stayed here several times and...

The team at IPH seemed to truly care about our experience at the hotel. The location in Olde City is perfect for the historical sites in Philly and the staff made sure we had a great visit. The free breakfast was better than most hotel offerings and the warm cider, coffee and cookies was a pleasant treat.
