Which hotel - first time with kids

We're traveling July 4 weekend and trying to decide between the Loew's hotel and Holiday Inn Historic. The kids and my husband have never been to Philadelphia.

Thanks in advance.

No decision-Holiday Inn Historic

The Loews hotel is more of a business hotel and is located near the Convention Center. This area is not nearly as nice as the historic area, where the Holiday Inn is located.

Ditto.

(I sense yet another FAQ coming that we should do).

The Embassy is a good choice but not one of the options the original poster asked to consider....

I appreciate all of the information. I asked about the specific hotels because they are in our price range (Embassy is slightly more expensive - at least at 4th of July) but I am very glad to have it as an option for this trip or for subsequent trips (hopefully this is first of several trips to the Philadelphia area!). I am grateful for all the info on these forums.- so thank you for the responses to my specific question, and for offering more info. I have definitely benefited from all of it!

Thank you to all for your suggestions. We are looking forward to our trip.

Also, the Embassy Suites has no pool and chances are, it will be hot in Philly in July with kids and the pool will offer a nice respite between activities and sighseeing. I have 3 kids and usually recommend the Embassy Suites chain for families - but not the one in Philly due to lack of said pool. FYI, Holiday Inn Historic has a outdoor pool and Loews has an indoor lap pool.
