      For some reason, the management at this hotel felt it was alright to place to holds on our account of a hundred dollars each. Not only did they do this, they said it couldn't be fixed for three business days.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Philadelphia Center City

      Checked out

      from

      We were traveling with our 3 year old and booked this hotel because it offered large rooms with microwave and minifridge. We arrive very late at night and were disappointed with the state of the room. It wasn't until the light of day that we realized how filthy the room was. There was on old nail polish bottle along with other suprises and layers of dust. We checked out and had to hassle about a $75 cancellation fee.

      Super Convenient

      from

      While not the most glamorous Hotel in the city, I found the Hilton Garden to be very easy and convenient. You can get a decent breakfast early and drinks at the 10th floor grill late. The room was on par with the Marriott. Free high speed access was a plus. Getting a cab out front was slow a few times, but it's a short walk down to Market St.

      where it's easy to get one. There is a Wawa's convience store right across the street. It's a good choice for an overnight business trip.

      Great location and extras

      from

      I love this place because of the location, very convenient to Convention Center, downtown in general, public transport, and right next door to the Reading Terminal Market, one of the most unique eating places in the nation! Love the fact that microwave and frig are in each room at no extra cost. Also very convenient are the laundry rooms on several floors-great for the person on the run. Views from windows not that great. Pool and hot tub seem often closed for cleaning and repair, fitness center small and not the most efficient. Staff helpful and cheerful, amenities far outweigh the drawbacks.

      Would stay here again

      from

      This was a nice hotel, right downtown, where I needed to be for a meeting at the Convention Center. The room was large. It had a refridgerator AND a microwave oven. You need that to heat up your leftovers...there's no morning room service. There is FREE high-speed internet access!! Colleaugues who stayed at the Marriot had to pay $10/hour for internet. One negative...the fitness center was mediocre at best. One working treadmill, one old, tired weight machine thing and some other aerobic machines. Okay, so there were TVs in the fitness room.

      Extra bonus, the people in Philadelphia that I met (Hilton hotel staff, street vendors, taxis, museum workers, etc.) were ALL friendly. What a pleasnt city!

      Average hotel, abominable restaurant

      from

      This hotel has three things going for it...location, location, location. It's a an OK hotel, but unreasonably expensive, in our opinion. And never under any circumstances go to the restaurant! There are plenty around town, but since they had two-hour waits, we ended up at the hotel restaurant. Never again. Overall, I suggest you try another hotel if you're looking for one in downtown Phillie.

      Great place to stay!

      from

      Stayed here 27 Dec - 1st Jan 2004. Reception staff were friendly, informative and happy to call us taxis, give directions etc. We checked in very quickly into a non-smoking room as requested. Room/bathroom was very clean and maid service daily. The room was a good size. Good location to be based and only 10 mins walk to Liberty Bell and the Visitors Centre. The Gallery Mall, coach station (only $45 for a day trip to New York - fantastic value), local transportation centre and Hard Rock Cafe are located steps away! Bus takes you direct to King of Prussia Mall (allow all day to visit)!! Visited Franklin Mills Mall by taxi - roundtrip was a reasonable $45. Overall, the hotel was good value for money in a great location and we would happily stay here again.

      Not a great location

      from

      If you want to be near the convention center then maybe you want to stay here. Beyond that nothing to offer from these high priced rooms.

      many better choices especially when you head towards Society Hill or Old City. Save your money.

      Great Stay...

      from

      We got a great rate at the Hilton. Very convenient to get out and enjoy the city and within walking distance of fine restaurants and easy access to historical areas. The staff was wonderful. They were always courteous and helpful even when they had complete mayhem in the lobby with a large group of about thirty people checking in at the same time.

      Room was clean spacious for three and nicely decorated. We will definitely go back

      Great Room

      from

      Great hotel, spacious room. I stayed there in 2002.

      Large room not so great interior

      from

      I stayed in Feb. 2003 I liked the way they built so I stayed. the room was huge compare to most of hotels I stayed but the interior seems very dark and out of fashion. carpet wasn't that clean either. they sould fix the toilet. the size of the toilet was decent but the sink area is extreamly small. Why they didn't put proper size tap? they have very good omlet in the moring and the view from the breakfast restaurant was great. The swimming pool was small and fitness center was tiny. I could use free internet at the business center. main lobby has a nice fire place.

Book reading, for example, may indeed be on the way out, but until it goes, cookbooks and food books remain among the most reliable moneymakers in the industry. To scan the bestseller lists or page the major reviews in any given month is to find that books on food and food-thought are at least reliably represented, and sometimes even predominate — to list a few from the past few ...

      ... departure was also put back 15 minutes so we had no problem with the change over.
      We arrived in Philadelphia at 5:30 pm and because we cleared USA customs and immigration in Canada before boarding the original flight, arriving was like a domestic flight where the baggage collection was outside in the general area. This meant however that there was no obvious place to meet our Philly friends, Gilda and Joe, who we are spending ...

Philly did all they could using every strategy in the book to keep on the pressure. However despite all their efforts and great determination, Atlanta remained triumphant. It was such a great game to witness lasting 3 hours 11 minutes. Who would have thought baseball would be ...
