Stayed there night before our flight to Orlando. We parked our car there and the they shuttled us to the airport. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast was OK. Front Desk Guy Super Friendly and very accommodating. Our shuttle driver returning home from airport was also super friendly!! Rate was reasonable and included parking for 5 days. Would stay there again.

I was there for just one night, but it was very nice. The people who worked there were friendly. There is parking, however, there is a fee to park there. That was the only downside to this hotel. However, I would stay there again. Beds were comfortable, breakfast was good, hotel was clean and the people were nice. :)

We came to visit our son who lives in Northern Liberties. This was very close to his apartment. Great location near Old City. Hotel is clean, breakfast good and staff polite. Only negative I have is that I left a pair of boots at the hotel and they were not turned in by the housekeeping staff. We only stayed overnight...

My best friend and I planned a two day trip to Philly and didn't want to spend a boat load of money. This hotel fit the bill really well. We booked flight and hotel through Expedia and paid just over $200/pp for both. Now that's a deal. Yes, request a room on the river side. Make use of the hotel's...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Penn's Landing because of its location. It was very close to the Fillmore Arena that my daughter and her friend were going to for a concert. It was only 1 mile away.... plus they offer a convenient free shuttle service. This is great for travelers from out of town who don't know...

Good location for touring. Nice Breakfast included. Had a great room facing the river with lots of room and two queen beds.

Everything was as good as I would hope. That includes being clean and properly appointed. No complaints about the room at all. Hot water was there! The continental breakfast had a better than average selection which included cinnamon buns that were too good. My only complaint is the same complaint I have at almost every hotel. That is: the scrambled...

Nice hotel. Beautiful fireplace in lobby. Clean room. Good location for Penns Landing. Good free breakfast in morning that included scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, cereals, toast/bagels, pastries. Parking was $30 and have in and out access. Walking distance from a nice Italian restaurant (Ristorante La Veranda), Bluecross river rink, Dave and Busters and more.

Staff were friendly & helpful. The room was clean. Breakfast was good. Location wasn't as central as we'd hoped however, was only a 5-10minute walk to old city where most of the historic sites are located. Not a lot to do around the hotel. A bit of noise from the traffic below but mainly from other hotel guests!
