The location is easy and convenient to get to. Only minor things that can be addressed easily: the room lamps need to be replaced (a makeshift adapter for different light bulbs with exposed wires), the WiFi signals not uniform throughout the property and finally not enough electrical sockets in the room. KEEP ROOM CARD KEY after check-out if you leave...

Everyone we met - front desk, housekeeping, garage parking staff- was very polite and friendly to talk to. The hot breakfast was excellent. We were visiting for the Philadelphia flower show so the location was perfect. Only 2 blocks from the convention center. Many places to eat and drink nearby. We went to 2 of the restaurants that the front...

I made the mistake of staying here! They charge you $25.00 a day just to park and then you have to wait a long time to get your car back! I found pubic hairs in the "clean" bed, in the shower,on the ceiling of the bathroom and behind the door. I had a better stay at a MOTEL 6. There's...

Stayed the weekend at the HIE in downtown Philadelphia. Parking garage left a lot to be desired. First, there was no place to unload luggage, so we had to travel to the 2nd floor and haul it downstairs in a tiny elevator that needed renovation. At the entrance, we were bowled over by bug spray. Check in was marred slightly...

Growing Pains This HIE is in a great location, has staff that are knowledgable, and good accommodations, still I can’t rate it as highly as I would other HIEs. For example, I requested a refrigerator in my room and 4 hours later the staff brought in a grimy fridge that I had to clean before I could put anything in...

My fellow club member and I spent the weekend there and it was mostly a positive experience. The room size was a nice size and clean. All of the furnishings looked up-to-date and in working order. The bathroom was rather small and there is no bathroom fan, but it was clean with the towels also clean and neatly folded. The...

I think for the price you get a decent overall value, but there are trade-offs. The pluses are many. The service is excellent. Nice staff and all questions answered in timely fashion. Rooms clean, tvs new flatscreens, decent channel selection, and felt quite safe. Very centrally located and for the price seemed a step up from the alternatives. The downsides...

The location is perfect in the middle of downtown, car park is part of the building so no need to get crazy to find one, it seems a former regular Holiday Inn turned in an Express.
