"Great Hotel for Penn's Landing or the Historic District"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
The Holiday Inn Express Penn's Landing is located next to the Delaware River and Ben Franklin Bridge right off of Columbus Blvd near Penn's Landing and the historic attractions. The hotel was renovated earlier this year with new modern décor; the lobby features a fireplace and large seating area for breakfast or anytime of the day to take advantage of the complimentary WIFI. Amenities include complimentary breakfast, WIFI, in room safes, fitness and business center, ATM and shuttle service that has a one mile radius-runs in the mornings and afternoons. Great if you do not want to walk to the attractions! Parking is available at a privately owned lot next door to the hotel (additional fee). This is a great hotel for any traveler either on business or on vacation and a great fit for school trips, bus tours, weddings and sports teams.

"Exceptional Customer Service"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Fantastic! What made this stay five star is the professional, competent and gracious staff. We encountered no less than a dozen members of the GM Andrews team and each one welcomed us with a greeting and welcoming smile. We want to spotlight two wonderful ladies in particular, both Courtney and Inez were stellar in their representation of this wonderful establishment. We will reference this location as our top choice for all future Philly visits. Keep up the great work !

"Great Stay"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The only thing missing in the room was the refrigerator and the microwave. Other than that, everything was great. Room service helped us out to open the door and get in the room. When we asked her for a microwave, she was ready to put a request for us to get it in the room, but we politely declined. She was great. The breakfast very delicious and we really enjoyed it.

Testimonials:

Testimonials icon
"Thank you so much for an amazing website. I had a very short time frame to manage a bus tour of 45. I needed hotels and banquets in less than 10 days. The destination was West Palm Beach - high season - and effectively sold-out. Within two hours I had responses back from three available hotels within my price range. I was able to sign a contract within 24 hours and manage the rest of the program. I continue to be impressed with your concept and will be a frequent user of your site." L.B. - Grand Rapids, MI
