          The staff is not well trained, so if you need some information about hotel services you might get different answers on the same question if asked to different employees. Rooms were ok, but althought there was a place for the minibar you had to request one at an extra charge. If you are lucky you might get a daily newspaper everyday at your door, but that is probably unlikely to happen. Laundry services not reliable and poorly done. Instead of silverware to be used at breakfast the hotel uses disposable plates and cups. In general the hotel price does not reflect the type of service you get.

          Nice large room and a swimming pool.

          The breakfast was awful and there weren't enough power sockets in the room.

        • Family with children

          Very clean and nicely decorated. The girls really enjoyed the roof top pool.

          Would have liked for the pool to stay open later. It closed at 9 and I have been to other Holiday Inn Expresses where they have been open later.

          The hotel was very comfortable and clean. Pool was exceptionally clean and pleasant. Even though we were here over July 4th, we were up on the 20th floor and there was absolutely no noise from the street that we could hear. The breakfast was good with many choices to please everyone.

          The room is very spacious and clean, and the bed is very comfortable. The tv programs are good as well.

          My husband and I don't travel a lot but stayed at the Holiday Inn when looking at a graduate school for our son. We enjoyed our stay very much. All of the staff were extremely helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. We stayed on the 17th floor and the city views were amazing. We had wanted a queen but ended up with a king which was a plus. Room was comfortable only downside were the pillows. They were just ok. Parking was very convenient and had a friendly staff around the clock. We felt safe at all times. The location was very convenient also, within walking distance of resturants and the downtown area. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

          The attendance of two employees of the breakfast.

          The service of front desk is terrible, it seems you're asking for God's sake to be served. They are so oblivious that twice I was surprised by new guests wanting to come into my room and you more interesting is that they had the keys (card) and my room number. The morning's mensager, a man is so rude who preferred to change hotel after asking for a laundry service. He grabbed the bag of clothes, played in the room and turned her back complaining. That's because I delivered before 8:00 am, I asked him to please help me and asked what time I could get the clothes back. Finally this man "forgot" to send my clothes and the front desk told me that he knew what had happened because the laundry operated normally.

          After I found it out; a pleasant stay in the city of Philly!!

          Could it be different depending on safety ’round there? If that, yes this…

          The woman who coordinated the breakfast area each morning was wonderful. She was always friendly and efficient. (I stayed three nights)

          The bedding didn't come up far enough --I had to scrunch to the bottom of the bed to get the blanket to my neck. The window was a bit drafty

          The rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable. Location was excellent, and the staff was outstanding in their friendliness. I will recommend to others.
