We went to Philadelphia during Memorial Weekend. This was the first trip with my 4 months old daughter and wife.
The hotel is very close to some major attractions in Philly like the Reading Terminal Market and Love Park. It took us less than a 10 minutes walk to get to these places. Independence Mall is a 20 minutes walk. Next to it there are several restaurants, cafeterias and stores.
Checking in/out was fast and easy. My room was on the 15th floor. It was clean with two queen comfy beeds and a good view of the city. Wifi worked well too. My only concern was the noise coming from Walnut st. We could hear late in the night people talking and loud music. Breakfast had the usual standart of any Holiday Inn Express. I wish they could add more fruits to it. Parking was very cheap compared to what I paid in other US cities. It was only $22 for a day. Not bad at all! Employees also were friendly and they all answered my needs for directions.More
