The sweetest and lovely ladies at the front desk, took away all stress I had from my previous problems at the airport and even had a little gift bag with snacks for my younger sister and I before our flight since we had to check out before breakfast.

The hotel is at a good location, most of the things that we were interested were close by. The hotel would need a makeover but our room was clean.

Will stay here next time I visit Philadelphia.

Pros: Room is large and equipped with 2 queen beds (maybe not all rooms this configuration).
Location: Central location at the heart of Philadelphia city. Not far to any attractions.
This is my second time in a few months. Location is the best. Price is very very very reasonable.

In the heart of Center City Philadelphia

Pros: The location is excellent. The parking is excellent. The staff is professional and friendly. The price is great. Free breakfast in the morning.
Cons: Nothing really. The small size of the rooms are because it is a Holiday Inn Express as opposed to a full Holiday Inn Hotel.
Location: You are in Center City. There is a lot of shopping, and endless choice of restaurants and you are near a lot of the tourist attractions.
I went to see a show at the Walnut Street Theater. I wanted a hotel that was close and with in walking distance to the theater and to all of the great restaurants in this area. This hotel fit perfectly. It is around 4 or 5 blocks from the theater. It has a parking lot right next to it. So you just pull in, unload your luggage and then park. The fee in December of 2015 was 25 for a one night parking stay. If you wanted to be able to take your car in and out it was an extra $2. The hotel itself is nice. The staff was very friendly and professional. Everybody smiled and made me feel welcomed. Any questions were answered fast and professionally. The check in process was very easy and took around 2 or 3 minutes. The room is what it is. This is A Holiday Inn Express, so the rooms are not large. But I would not call them small either. They have everything you need. They were clean and furnished with enough items for me and my girlfriend to feel relaxed and comfortable. The only thing I can think that was bad was I could not for the life of me figure out how to turn on the fan in the bathroom. If I ever go to another show in Philly and stay overnight I will stay here again as the price was right, the parking is easy and convenient, the staff was great and the location for Center City is excellent.

Good location. Great desk staff. Best price around

Pros: Location. Price.
Location: close to restaurants of all kinds (pizza shops to high-class dining). Easy walk to Macy's, Love Park, etc.
Got a good deal through Travelocity. It beat the surrounding hotels prices by a long shot. Holiday Inns are always a safe bet, and this one has good ratings. So, win-win.

Renovations

After a over booking mistake at another hotel our plans were charged get to the holiday Inn express. I was excited because I was told this hotel was recently renovated. When we walked into our room it was one that wasn't. They were working from the top floors down. The room showed it's age. The bathroom was extremely small hardly enough room to close the door. Hopefully with the renovated rooms the large separated sink area was redesigned to be part of the bathroom. The pictures of the new rooms look nice. The staff was extremely friendly. On a plus side we didnt hear any of the noise from the renovations.
