I go to Philly several times a year. Usually stay at the Hampton Inn on Race and 13th, not too far from this Holiday Inn, but thought I'd try a different hotel for this trip. There are many good things about this property. The location could not be better, in the midst of everything Center City has to offer. Check-in...

Stayed at this hotel in connection with a convention (since the Javits' Center is closed). There is nothing wrong with the hotel if you are looking for a low, or at least lower rate, but this is an old building and the guest rooms are in need of a face lift. For example, the shower head is about 5'6" off...

We stayed in this hotel for a conference. This is not a fancy hotel. However rooms were clean and the location is very convenient for visiting attractions. If I have to visit Philadelphia again it is likely I would stay here again.

I recently stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for one night during a business trip. The hotel, overall, was clean, and the staff was very friendly. My room had a nice view of the city, but my bathroom was a bit small. The breakfast buffet had a decent selection; however, it could have used some more healthy options. The gym...
