My family wanted a hotel close enough to the museum district, and Old Town, this was right in the middle. I was a little skeptic when I seen the small street and how crowded it seemed, then there's the Holiday Inn hidden in the midst of it. Well the lobby was quaint. A bit old fashioned. Check In was speedy. As we made our way to our room it looked old and the ceilings were low. Imagine our surprise as we walked into a very spacious dbl room. The set up was perfect. We had a view of the top of city hall outside our window. Yes we looked out onto other buildings but there was many smaller ones in between that didn't crowd our view. My family of 4 which consisted of 1 teenager and 1 rambunctious 7 yr old fit comfortably in our room. The pool area was great too. No access by elevator, but again was surprised at the set up. Shallow end was small but good enough for my little guy. The next morning we got to experience the breakfast buffet. I thought your basic buffet it would be. Nope, it had omelets, turkey sausage patties, bacon, scrambled eggs, cinnamon buns, asst danishes, asst cereals, yogurts, milks, fruit, and the cutest pancake maker. Excellent way to stay the day. Front staff was friendly to us esp a Ms Peace. The convenient parking garage worked out well and was cheaper compared to other hotels. And a quick 5 minute walk took us to the subway where we easily jumped on and took the 5 minute ride to the ball park to watch the Phillies game. That would have been a 30+ minute drive depending on traffic then paying for parking. The subway was a definite bonus. Also there was a pick up point for the big bus tour just down the street from the hotel. All the little shops and restaurants around were cute. Oh and there's a convenience store right across from the hotel. We plan on staying here again when we go back and would definitely recommend this to others.
