The Bill of Rights was ratified here. This is also where George Washington gave his second term inaugural speech and John Adams gave his first.

... The taxi driver I ended up getting had been dropping someone else off (and had therefore not been in the line to pick up new passengers), but he told me he would get me where I needed to go.

As it turns out, it was a bit of an adventure trying to leave the station, as the other taxi drivers had noticed that my taxi driver hadn't been in line and were angry with him. After two minutes of shouting back and forth with one of the other drivers, ...

I opened an email in my inbox from the language office describing what appeared to me to be an amazing experience. It was an experience I couldn't let pass by especially since, it'll be one of my last opportunities to travel freely without being tied down to a 36 hour/week job. I'm about to enter the stage in my life where spring/winter/summer vacations don't exist and instead they are replaced with accruals, sick days and holiday requests. Never again will I have the ...

... is, "And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year." What better way to pay homage to Penn and hallow the 50th year than with a bell proclaiming liberty?
Also inscribed on the Bell is the quotation, "By Order of the Assembly of the Province of Pensylvania for the State House in Philada." Note that the spelling of "Pennsylvania" was not at that time universally adopted. In fact, in the original Constitution, the name of the state is also spelled "Pensylvania." The choice ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Philadelphia Stadium

    OK hotel

    from

    We stayed here one night when our booked HI "walked" us. It was OK for one night, not convenient to anything without a car, $20 taxi fare to downtown. Our HI included breakfast but this hotel did not (ours did reimburse us, however).

    The desk clerks were NOT friendly or helpful . . . we were checking in around 12:30 a.m., so they were not busy . . . they acted put out with us for being walked and check in took over 30 min.

    The room w/2 double beds was fine but the door had no working deadbolt. We asked to change rooms, ended up looking at 3 and none had working deadbolts. They told us the card keys were rekeyed after every guest but I bet they aren't. We are women and didn't feel particularly safe.

    V ERY AVERAGE

    from

    I read this had been refurbished? I don't see any. It's old,smelly and not good value for money. Carpets stained, cannot think when aircon is on, beds hard. Saving grace is very large rooms but not great at all.

    Great location and a decent hotel

    from

    Stayed here on August 26-28, 2005. Location is excellent, as it is within walking distance to both the football and baseball stadiums.

    Hotel is clean. First night was a Eagles game...second night was a Buffett concert...and the hotel and grounds were cleaned right up afterwards (note: they allow tailgating in the parking lot). Rooms are fine...decent amount of space and clean.

    Ate at the hotel rest. Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. It was pretty good, actually. Rest. is a sportsbar theme.

    For me, the hotel was a great value...I got it through Priceline for $53 a night (was told at check in that the going rate for the nights we stayed was $200 a night). Here's a hint: Priceline breaks their city selections into sectors....this Holiday Inn is the only hotel in the "stadium" sector...because you know what hotel you are going to get, you can score with absurdly low bids.

    Overpriced, but very convenient

    from

    We recently stayed at the Stadium Holiday Inn while attending a concert at the Citizens Bank Ballpark. The hotel was very convenient to the stadium complexes. It is within easy walking distance of all of the stadiums and sports arenas.

    The hotel was very clean. Check-in and check-out were very friendly and easy. We had a nonsmoking king room on the 10th floor. We had a very nice view of Center City from our room. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant, so I cannot comment on this. The lounge was a sports bar that had several large screen TVs along the wall.

    The hotel was probably overpriced. However, we realized that we were paying for the convenient location and knew going in.

    Overall, an enjoyable experience.

    For Sports Fans Only

    from

    Without question, the best thing about this Holiday Inn is its proximity to the sports venues in South Philly. You're a 3 to 5 minute stroll from all the venues and there are no other lodgings to be found so close.

    I did a one night stay here between a couple of night/day Phillies baseball games. Had to wait for a room, as did everyone else who arrived when I did, an hour after check-in time. Front desk person was apologetic, but a bottled water, drink from the bar, or any peace gesture would have been much appreciated during the 1/2 hour wait. Sitting in the lobby talking to fellow baseball enthusiasts helped pass the time.

    Room was very clean, spacious enough and completely functional, though relatively austere. Thermostat worked very well to keep room comfortable. Good water pressure in the shower. Comfy bed. No noise problems during my Wednesday night stay. Best thing about the room was the breathtaking view of Citizens Bank Ballpark. If you're a baseball fan, be absolutely certain to request a room facing the ballpark on one of the higher floors.

    Breakfast buffet was like most everything else here: serviceable, not bad, with no special touches. Scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, dry cereals, canned fruit and juices, cheap bread, day-old-tasting pastries. Just fine if you did too many drafts the night before. Otherwise, skip it and head to the ball park early for an incredible roast pork, provolone and broccoli rabe sandwich at Tony Lukes.

    I recommend this hotel to sports fans only. It worked well for me -- clean, functional, convenient -- but I was just there for the games and to thoroughly experience this beautifully conceived new ball park. Nothing else at all to do in the immediate area. Family vacationers and non-sports fans will find better values with better amenities and more to do, uptown.

    Never in my life have I been in such a terrible hotel

    from

    My entrance into the hotel started with my pregnant wife and I standing in line for about 30 minutes while the clerk, who apparrantly had an extremely negative existance told us that housekeeping was updating their computer systems and they could not help anyone. Finally, when we were checked in, we went up to our room. Upon first entrance, it looked spacious and nice. Then, of course, after a two hour drive and a 1/2 hour wait to check in, my pregnant wife needed desperately to use the facilities. I sat down on the bed and heard her sigh of disgust as she reported to me that the toilet was unflushed from the last guest, there was urine on the seat, and pubic hairs all over the floor of the bathroom. She then had to wait an additional 1/2 hour for housekeeping to come up and clean the bathroom. Later that night, our sleep was interrupted frequently by people making a ton of noise and screaming loudly for hours. In the morning our slumber was brought to an abrupt end as someone thought it funny to pull the fire alarm. The only staff that seemed to have the muscles neccessary in their face to provide a smile for a guest were those of the restaurant staff. Did I mention the baked on food all over the supposedly clean plates and silverware? Do yourself a favor. Don't ever stay here!!!!! To sum it all up in one word,,,,,,YUK!!!!!!!!!

    Worst place i have ever stayed

    from

    on our return trip from mexico last week our flight was delayed from cancun therefore we missed our connection from philly. there was bad weather i guess in the north east while we were gone that caused a lot of airline back ups considering it was a school vacation week. our flight landed at 8:45 we waited for the ticketed passangers who would be making their connections that nigt to ge reticketed. well we were given vouchers to the holiday inn stadium in philadelphia and a couple of vouchers for food one for dinner and one for breakfast. we were instructed to call the hotel and request a shuttle wich we did and they instructed us to wait on the curb under the courtesy sign. we were at a-4 and thats what we told them. when we got to the curb there were about 10 other people who were also waiting for the shuttle van. we were later informed that there is only one van. there were about 16 people waiting. the shuttle soon came by and kept on going. he was empty. we waited about 20-30 minuts in the cold only to watch the van go by yet again. a nice guy in another bus type van came by and offered to let us sit on his bus to keep warm while we waited. some people accepted while others stayed on the sidewalk to watch the horrible holiday inn stadium shuttle van drive by one more time. each time people were calling the hotel to let them know the situation. finally the nice bus driver said that he would take us all to the horrible holiday inn stadium in philidelphia. we took up a collection for him. when we got there we were informed that we would not be able to use our food vouchers tonight

    due to the fact that the kitchen closes at 11pm. it was now 11:15pm. i asked to speak to the manager and he told us he had nothing to do with it. that he was not able to help us out. i asked him if the shuttle was affiliated with the hotel and he said yes. but the guy can only take so many people and he was full so he couldnt stop. WHAT!!! HE WAS EMPTY ALL 3 TIMES HE PASSED US!!! so we went up to our rooms. the rooms were very rundown and dingy. the shower was extremely hard to turn on so the other couple we were with couldnt turn theirs on. we ordered pizza and went to bed. we got down to the resturant in the morning to use our vouchers for breakfast and after getting the breakfast buffet to go we got our bill. we found out that the breakfast vouchers were only for $5.00 a person and that the breakfast buffet was $6.95!!!! they were refusing to take the dinner vouchers that we couldnt use the night before. we made such a stink that the girl said ok and then went to call her manager. (she was very sympathetic though and appologized for the inconvenience many times. i thanked her and told her that her service was the best service of anyone at her hotel including her manager. she smiled and thanked me.) there was an angry mob of about 16 people in her resturaunt. we finally got on board the only shuttle bus back to the airport and vowed to never return to the horrible holiday inn stadium ever again.

    Near Airport

    from

    The Holiday Inn is at the southern edge of the South Philly neighborhood, with a view of the stadium complex. The hotel provided a free shuttle to the airport. Rooms are big. Be prepared for a sports atmosphere!

    Avoid the car traffic

    from

    If you're going to a sporting event in Philadelphia, this is the hotel (and only) hotel within EASY walking distance. It is in the process of being renovated so there are no on site eateries. (July 2004) We were on an upper floor and had a view of the new baseball stadium. It was a good size room with a comfortable king size bed. They have stadium event parking in their parking lot and we thought we'd have a hassle but the gal had our name on a sheet of paper and in we drove. It's very convenient on and off the highways and an easy drive into downtown Philadelphia. They had no shuttle service to the airport.

    The Turf Club across the street served a good lunch and was good entertainment to see what a lot of men do for leisure activitiy (play the ponies and anythiing else with four legs that they could bet on).

    Location, location, location!

    from

    I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Stadium, and it appeared that the hotel is still undergoing some renovations. My room however was finished and was beautiful. Very clean, furnished nicely, comfy beds, and a nice sized refridgerator. We had a room with an amazing view, facing inside the new Phillies stadium. It was beautiful at night! If you are attending a Phillies game, it's an easy walk. A little more of a hike for the Wachovia Spectrum & Center, or the Link, but still do-able. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone attending events in the sporting complex, it's the perfect location!
