I stay at a lot of HIE's and I would classify this one as "okay." The breakfast offerings are the same as most HIE sites. So it is nice to have something right in the hotel, but it is "okay." The room was a good size, but I barely got any sleep because of all night sewer work with jackhammers....

We stayed here for three days. At he outset I will say the reception looks tired and belies the fact that the hotel is in a great location. The room was very clean and tidy and our bedding was changed every day. The only down side was that the are a bit stingy with the coffee pods but will give...

I have to be honest. Holiday Inn Express is not usually my first choice for lodging, but this hotel changed any previous perception I'd had of the brand. Of course the location in Midtown was ideal for a quick theatre trip and a history lesson, but what got me most was the service and the accommodations themselves. My check in...

We chose this hotel for its great central location to many of the tourist sites, which meant more time to play rather than driving, and because it offers the Cell Block 7 pacakge. We came to Philly specifically to check out Eastern State Pen & Terror Behind the Walls. The hotel itself was clean and the staff were always polite...
