Reviewed 7 June 2014

Stayed one night in Queen Bed room with family. Location is great. Check-in and parking was quick and convenient. Room was average, but clean and served its purpose; no complaints. No room service, but front desk can recommend delivery options. Did not take advantage of the breakfast, but it is complimentary. Excellent for the value. Would recommend and stay again.

How nice to hear that everything was very nice while you stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Midtown. As an Express/limited service hotel we do not have food service, restaurant or lounge/bar, but we do provide a deluxe continental breakfast for our guests.

Have to say... totally impressed with the newly renovated room. It's awesome. Can't say so much for the wifi. Incredibly slow and spotty. Hard to prepare for a web seminar with wacky wifi. Other than that. Great.

We recently spent three nights and days at this luxurious hotel. the rooms we had were newly remodeled, clean, quiet and clean. The maid service, desk clerks, etc., went above & beyond to make our stay comfortable. Our friend who also stayed at this hotel has a cheese allergy and they prepared a separate set of egg dish for her at the breakfast. They have great breakfasts, healthy choices and good coffee.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Philadelphia.

Three friends and I planned a night out in the city and booked this hotel so we would not have to worry about getting ourselves home that night since we all lived a bit outside the city. We were four grown women, 25 and older (with careers) just wanting to enjoy a night out.

After returning back to the hotel that night around 2 am, we headed right up to our room, got ready for bed and hung around casually chatting in bed for a bit. Around 2:30 as we were starting to fall asleep our hotel phone rang and we did not answer assuming it was nothing considering the time. About 10 minutes later we received a knock on the door and a security guard named Daniel told us we had received a noise complaint and since we did not answer we were being kicked out of our room. After much arguing with him (during which time he threatened to call the cops if we did not leave - to which we asked him to have the cops come here because he was very rude and out of line) we agreed to just leave so we could go home and get some sleep. We then tried to close the door so we could get dressed out of our pajamas and he insisted that the door had to stay open, treating us like criminals. He then escorted us out of our room like felons and out of the hotel. We asked to speak to multiple other people and no one at the front desk bothered to help us when we explained the situation.

After many hours spent trying to get the correct person on the phone later that week our money was finally refunded.

I will NEVER stay at this hotel again, the treatment we received was absolutely disgusting.

Have stayed in this HI on 7 occasions in 4 years and never been disappointed. smack in the middle of town and has the best breakfast bar ever. Ms Kathrine is the tender for the breakfast and you never run out of fresh anything. she will even sneak a banana in your jacket pocket to hold you for lunch. Desk service is the best I have encountered in 40 years. This place could pass for 4 stars.

Room Tip: get a high floor and see the beautiful skyline around you.

I was in Philadelphia for business and this place was very accommodating and relaxing. When I arrived early, instead of making me wait, the receptionist upgraded me to a better room.
Parking is quite expensive but that's how it goes all over the city! Thanks!

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.
