    Fabulous

    It was walking distance to most of the tourist sites.

    I would have liked to know ahead of time that parking is $22 a day. I assumed that parking would be complimentary on the grounds. Street parking was impossible to find so that was our only option.

    The best would be it's location right near Independence Hall National Park. Very convenient to important historical locales. Next would be the pool area- really nice roof-top pool, family friendly.

    Location

    Staff is very unattentive. Priority Club counter was unoccupied most of the time. Breakfast was quite disorganized. Half the tables free, but still a line of up to 14 people.

    location was fabulous and the staff, particularly Ester, were very helpful. I had intended to spend only a few days there but due to flooding in my son's condo, I had to increase my stay be several days. The staff was able to accomodate me and I didn't have to change rooms,

    Great location. Restaurant staff was great, especially Lakinda at the breakfast meal. She was friendly, competent, attentive, smart and always seemed to have a special sparkle about her...truly a people person, eager to please. Holiday Inn Philidelphia is fortunate to have her and helped make our stay very special.

    This particular hotel seems to need a concierge. The front desk staff always tried to be helpful but were always busy with folks checking in/out etc. Our Sunday night meal at the pub was the worst meal I had in my life. The french fries were greasy and appeared to be recooked. The hamburg sliders weren't much better. My wife's Philly cheesesteak was cold. The bartender and waitress were busy bartending and waitressing...it appeared they were trying to cook too. Not good results. However we would never let one bad meal ruin our vacation.

    Good

    This hotel is well located near Market Street, Liberty Bell and other interesting sightseeing locations.

    The comfort is ok, but the breakfast was a bit lean, dirty plates, paying extra (on top of the $20) for orangejuice and no service with a smile. That was a pitty.

    Superb

    Holiday Inn was a very nice & clean place to stay. We took the package that offered breakfast every morning in the resturant area and it was very good ordering off menu or buffet. I would recomend getting the breakfast vaule. we didn't get to use the pool because it rained on our stay. The staff & waiters/waitress we very friendly and helpful. It was also walking distance in most everything that we wanted to see & the vistor center right cross the street along with where you would catch the trolly for pick ups & drop offs to 27 places to visit. I would stay at the Holiday Inn again. We parked our car in the lot 4 days and had no problem with getting around. nice not having to drive in Philly.
