... up the road. When arriving, we soon realised it wasn't the type of concert we were expecting, it was a full on orchestra!!!! And for those of me who know what I am like, know that the only way I could have possibly enjoyed myself was by taking the Micky the entire concert! So all in all, it was a strange but cool night. FRIDAY JULY 4TH. In the morning I met two other girls, one from Canada and the other from Ireland. So all four of us decided we wanted to go and be ...

At the time Philadelphia was not the only city in the county. There were a dozen others. When the country took their first census Philadelphia county had 3 out of the top 10 largest cities in America. Today they have all expanded and grown together to be ...

... disappointed.

We finally got into Philly at about 3:30 PM, and after figuring out it was about 2 miles to my hotel from the train station, I decided that I was too tired and had had too little food that day (read: none) to figure out how to navigate the city. And so, today I successfully hailed my first taxi.

Of course, the first taxi I hailed "didn't know" how to get to my hotel, and almost ran me over in his hurry to get away from ...

After lunch we went to see the Liberty Bell, the iconic symbol of American independence followed by Independence Hall where where both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted. Did you know that Americans ...

    Great location, great value, will stay here next time I'm in Philly

    from

    At this hotel you definitely get the bang for your buck. The location is great - in very close proximity to the convention center and very close proximity to really nice, upscale shopping. The included breakfast buffet is SO great (cereal, bagels, toast, muffins, coffee, teas, juices, hot cinnamon buns, fresh fruit), and the staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. They also provide daily passes to the Bally's two blocks away, and it's an AWESOME Bally's. Another great thing about this hotel is that they give every guest a free morning paper (goes great with the breakfast buffet). The rooms were fine and clean. The only complaint I have is that they didn't have very many channels available on the television if you didn't want to pay extra. One of the other great things is th $2 martini's happy hour at a bar only 1 block away. Just a great experience. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Works for us

    from

    This is the third time we have stayed in this hotel. We took advantage of the two nights for the price of one offer. Included in this offer was free parking which is a big savings, as it would have set us back about 40 dollars for the two nights. It is true that the parking can be tight if there is a crowd in Philly. Not only do the Holiday Inn customers park there but people who use the local bars such as McGillin"s also park there. I try to bring our older car when we visit. So if there is a ding or dent I don"t get too upset. To be fair, to this point there has not been any ding or dent. If you are staying for two nights, ask the attendant if you can park on the roof of the garage. It is less crowded there and more room to manuver. If you are in a rear facing room you can have a view of your car if this is important to you. As far as the hotel goes, I like it. All of the workers are friendly. This was not always the case in the past. In the past we detected an attitude problem on the part of some of the front desk workers. This was definitely not the case this time. All seemed friendly and knowledgeable. The pool on the 6th floor is a nice touch. The late check-out is also helpful. No need to rush around on the last day. The breakfast is far above average. The setting is roomy and the woodwork of the room and pictures on the wall should demand your attention. We are active people, so we walk for miles and think nothing of it. If you are not a walker, you may want to get a little closer to the action. The only complaint was that they had no cinnamon buns on our second day. If you have ever had them you would understand why this was a dissapointment. I'll stay here again and again.

    Not too bad........

    from

    Not to shabby. BUT there were no Cinnamon Bun at all during the entire week. The sing they had posted looks as thought it's there permanently!

    NEXT TIME...if you want cinnamon buns better off just buying them yourself.

    Good location

    from

    We stayed over July 4th 2004 weekend, one of the most crowdy days in Philadelphia. The hotel does not offer spacious space in lobby and other areas, however the room averall is confortable and excellent housekeeping. Excellent security at night.

    Great hotel for the money!

    from

    We got a 2 for 1 deal through -------------------; for $161 we got 2 nights accommodation, free parking, and the deluxe breakfast bar. Our room was on the 19th floor, and was very spacious and modern. The location is excellent if you don't mind walking a few blocks to see the sights.

    Hated the location

    from

    It was an okay hotel. YOU can get a lot better in the area without even spending that much more. Bad location. could barely go anywhere. Okay though.

    Perfect location, near everything! March 4-11, '04

    from

    large rooms, view of city, walking distance to many restaurants, a few blocks to convention ctr or tourist sites, free breakfast daily, and if you register for priority club, free @ holidayinn.com, you get a daily newspaper delivered to your door. pool in summer is open, and free gym pass. only issue, is walls aren't thick, so you neighbors. request a high floor. have fun!

    Great Deal

    from

    My family of four stayed here last summer (8/03) and found it to be a great location to get anywhere in the city ... close enough to walk to everywhere. Very close to the theaters, stones throw from Rittenhouse Square, good restaurants. Best of all, good price and it comes with a breakfast ... better than most mid-priced hotels. More than just coffee and dried out donuts! The front desk staff was mediocre, but the lady in the breakfast room was the best ever!!! She was friendly and efficient and remembered us every day. She made it worth going back for! (Which we will)

    No way next time

    from

    Right in the middle of where you don't want to be. not in the high rise business section nor in the charming historic section, but somewhere else. Nothing out of the ordinary so unless your destination is real close I would by pass this place on hte next trip.

    Best b-day gift ever

    from

    For my b-day I treated myself to a trip to philly. From a suggestion from a coworker who recently stayed there I showed up w/o making reservations. I got a very large room with double queens and a great view of philadelphia. The hotel's location was perfect - chinatown a couple blocks away as well as shopping. There was a couple of undesirable adult stores in the area but the attractions such as independence hall, the convention center, and reading farmer's market make up for such detractors. 1st day horribly rainy but 2nd day beautifully sunny. Best part was check out was at 1 pm.
