Was in town to attend our daughter's competition at Lehigh University. Hotel was close which was key but geared more toward the business crowd. They did have a small pool which was nice, but the pool room was ice cold. It would have much more enjoyable if it was warmer. Room was roomy and updated, loved the bathroom, My husband,...

I agree with others, it was ok not great for a hotel downtown. Parking could be better, a bridge or walk way to hotel would be better. Breakfast was ok, very limited in choices. Room was plain to me compared to others that looked more trendy, all this said I would stay here again if needed.

Thank you for posting your feedback on TripAdvisor. We apologize we cannot offer free parking at our location. As with many other center city properties, space for parking is limited, and we must deal with the challenges around that. We have negotiated the cheapest rate for our guests with the City. As for the breakfast here at the hotel, we...

Stayed here for a event at the PPL center. Room was spacious and very clean. Beds were comfortable and the pillows were great. A five minute walk to the PPL center. Parking is eight dollars (10 for events) but well worth it. They will credit you the eight dollars if your there on a event night. Staff at check in...

We only stayed for one night but the room and bathroom were clean. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is in a great location on Hamilton street. Walking distance to the PPL Center and there are some great bars and restaurants right in the area. Although I wouldn't feel comfortable venturing off Hamilton Street at night. The surrounding area...

Hotel doesn't have parking. Therefore you stuck using an adjacent lot. The hotel is okay. Strange odor in the sleeping room and meeting room. Older hotel and in need of minor updates and upgrades. Restaurant staff is okay.

Dear Concerned38, Thank you for taking the time to rate your stay with us. I apologize you were not satisfied with the parking situation here, but a a center city property, unfortunately a parking lot and open space is impossible. The garage located behind our hotel has negotiated the best possible rate for our guests. As far as the condition...

I didn't expect all that much from a Holiday Inn, particularly in Allentown, PA, but this one was shiny new, had very helpful staff and the room was clean and comfortable. The room was a non-smoking room and included free wifi. Restaurant on site was just OK, nothing special, but edible. I was there on business and plan to stay...

The hotel staff are very friendly; however, the hotel is very dated. There was a stale odor in the lobby, the hallways of the hotel, and our room; almost as if it had been previously converted from a smoking hotel. The bed was comfortable, but that is the only positive feedback that we can provide. Stained furniture, small television, cramped...

Security was called multiple times to quiet down my noisy neighbors 1:00 AM. I wouldn't recommend coming here if you need a good night's sleep. My noisy neighbors played loud music. Security came 3 times. I was offered a different room at 2:00 AM. I would avoid staying here.

Dear Lance, First, let me apologize that your first room had noisy neighbors. We certainly did not expect for you to be next to noisy people, and am sorry that security did not remedy the noise, causing you to switch rooms. I hope that your second room is much more comfortable and quiet for you. I see that you are...

Allentown was a mixed area, closer to airport not so nice, as reflected in my hotel. However by J Briney stadium was extremely beautiful, wonderful park with lake and all around pleasant. The stadium is amazing, clean, great views from every angle and staff was very friendly. I will go back again next year, however stay in different area.
