Holiday Inn Express Philadelphia-Midtown
Ranked #27 of 87 Hotels in Philadelphia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 November 2013

The room décor was dated. Worn carpeting, dated and broken furniture, etc. Very uncomfortable and noisy. My "free upgrade" included a broken desk/table and needing to call for towels to be delivered as the room had none. Wi-Fi was inconsistent and hospitality was average at best.

By the way, I'm an IHG Rewards Member, and I do not plan to return to this hotel.

Very large, well appointed room. King bed, arm chair and ottoman, two side chairs, desk and desk chair and still room to walk. Breakfast was very nice. Well located. Staff very helpful. No complaints here. Parking is listed as $25, but that is when charged to hotel with in/out privileges. If you park on your own and leave car there it is $22. Was perfect for one night, but for longer stays prefer a place that has a refrigerator and microwave.

Room Tip: tall building so if noise is an issue go higher up. We were on 17 and didn't hear anything.

Everything was great, the room, location the staff the food. I was here for a training. The front desk is SO sweet expecially Gwen. There was one girl named Emily that didnt seem to fit in with the rest of the friendly staff but other then her, they were all amazing. !!! Highly recommended! Clean room, comfortable, staff is attentive and the property is very convinient to all attractions.

Great trip, clean room, awesome downtown location within walking distance from all the restaurants/attractions in Center City. We walked to Redding terminal, which is a must-do for anyone visiting. Would stay here again!

We hope that you do come back, and soon. It's excellent to hear that you enjoyed yourself so thoroughly. Reading Terminal is an excellent place to spend some time, and eat some great food.

I can't say enough good things about our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Midtown. From our initial check-in to our final check-out, the front desk staff was very friendly and attentive, and helpful with suggestions for dinner. The room was immaculate when we checked in, and cleaned really well throughout our four-night stay. The breakfast area was kept exceptionally clean, the food and drink was constantly being refreshed, and there was a nice selection of "healthy" choices. Special kudos go out to Betty in the breakfast area. When she saw that my son tried to get some apple juice and the machine was empty, she replenished it immediately, and apologized for the inconvenience! Other staff members were constantly walking around, checking to make sure that the guests' needs were met. The service was exceptional!
The only drawback to the location is the parking, which is typical of midtown places. The parking garage requires driving up some really steep and narrow ramps. Sometimes the attendants took the car and parked it for us, other times we parked it ourselves, which was a little harrowing, but it certainly did not take away from our very positive experience at this hotel.
