Hotel was okay. I think it was older and they've updated most of it, but you can still see the age. The room was good-sized, but no fridge-kind of surprising- I wasn't happy about that. The nighttime front-desk guys were great and gave great cheesesteak advice.

The awesome thing is the view! Make sure to get a riverview room, you will get an outstanding view of the Ben Franklin Bridge and it is stunning!!

Room Tip: Pay the extra $$ for the riverview!

This hotel is nothing extra.
Just your basic drop your stuff off and go out for the day and then come back and sleep.
Great tv stations available and free wifi and fantastic buffet breakfast included was fantastic though. had to get in early though.

Rooms are pretty spacious and clean bathroom is ok in size.
It is in a good location and pretty quiet area.

Front desk wasn't too helpful they seemed under pressure a lot of the time but the manager who was there was very helpful.
parking can be an issue especially when its busy like it was for us when we were there. Chicago @ Philly Sunday Night Football.

Room Tip: get to the buffet early in the mornings the food goes.

Recently, Myself and other Chaperones took 41 Egyptian Students to Philly and DC and we stayed for two nights at the Holiday Inn Penns Landing. From the moment we got there, everything was in order with our rooms for a fast check in. Rooms were clean and everything was perfect. They let us have the whole dining room area in order to do a study hall, which took up a lot of the room in the lobby, but they did not mind. The breakfast was absolutely magnificent as they had turkey sausage for our Muslim students and also a wide variety of other great breakfast items which kept the students going back for seconds. The best part of the hotel is that we had to have security in the hall for any incidents. The security guards name was Ken Hendrix and he was spectacular. Every morning when I woke up, he had listed which rooms stayed up late talking and gave me the paper with all the students names on it. He made my job a lot easier as I was able to use this time to plan (we didnt have any incidents on the whole trip with students sneaking out and I believe he helped out with that by his presence). He was a blast to be around and a very funny person to talk too. Thank you Ken and Thank You Holiday Inn Penns landing!!!!! We will see you again next year!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are good

The experience overall was extremely good. Good value. The staff was polite, cheerful and helpful. The room was really clean, well equipped and spacious. The bathroom was spotless. The hotel is located very close to the old town. Free shuttle service within two miles. The only downside is the fact that the hotel faces an incredibly busy motorway and, inspite of the double glazing, the noise was quite bothersome. Light sleepers should pack their earplugs. Breakfast could do with some improvement also, but it was acceptable. Beware of the coffee though!
