We stayed over Presidents Day weekend and it of course is a busy weekend but the front desk staff could barely be bothered when we spoke to them. When we came to check in on Friday night the guy that checked us in was extremely unfriendly and cold. We went up to our room and in the elevator was a giant sign that said there would be a hefty cleaning fee if there were any signs of Valentine’s Day romance in your room. We got to our room and it was clean but dated. We were there for two days and parking in philly on a busy weekend is no treat so we decided to try to utilize the shuttle service the hotel offers instead. We waited over forty five minutes on Saturday and no shuttle came back to the hotel through out that time. We asked the front desk and the three people behind the desk seemed actually bothered by our questions as to how it worked. The woman behind the desk vaguely answered that it was on demand but then couldn’t tell us how to get in contact with the driver. We finally gave up and took our chances driving, when we finally came back around 10:30 and there wasn’t a spot available in the lot. Having paid $30 a night to park I wouldn’t expect that, so they had a valet that took your keys and double parked you in the lot and would move you to a space if one became available. We were kind of floored that we had to do this but figured we had no choice. We came down on Sunday morning at 9 for breakfast and the line was horrendous and almost everything was empty, the oatmeal was out, the sausage was empty, and there were no eggs. We decided to skip dealing with the crowds and lack of food and check out at that point because we were totally disappointed. This definitely did not live up to any other IHG experience I’ve had and I definitely would not stay here again. The only upside to the whole experience was housekeeping, everyone we passed in the hallways could not have been friendlier, maybe management should consider putting them at the front desk as it would create a much more hospitable and warm environment upon arrival.

"Good, not great"

Convenient, comfortable, reasonably priced. Onsite parking is a plus. Bathroom could use some work: finishes were a little rough around the edges with some water damage on the bathroom door; and there was not sufficient, consistent hot water. I had enough hot water to get shampoo into my hair, then rinsed in ice cold water. Quite a wake up routine!

"Fantastic New Year's Eve!"

We were very impressed with our room, the staff and the overall experience. We were here with family in several rooms for New Year's Eve, and Bruce took great care of us. The lobby is welcoming and they had cocoa and cookies at check in. Our rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable, and we had a very nice view. The free breakfast the next morning was impressive, with a nice variety. We look forward to our next stay!

More than impressed with the staff and this facility. I celebrated NYE here with a larger group of people. From the parking lot to the front desk to the hotel room, the service was great. The breakfast was really good - great selection. Such a great location. Thank you especially to Monica, David and Terry who were awesome! Can't wait to stay here again. Happy New Year!!

We stayed at this hotel for a night away...and to sightsee in Philly...The front desk staff were friendly and efficient (especially Anez (I might have spelled it wrong...)) There was a nice gas fireplace in the lobby and hot coffee/tea/hot cocoa 24/7. They also had pretzels and cookies at the front desk midday, which was a nice touch :-) I also liked how you had to have a room key to access the floors from the elevator-it made the hotel feel very secure... Our room was very clean-I can see how it would be noisy, as we had a river view and still heard traffic. We still were able to sleep without any problems... We used the free hotel shuttle and it was terrific. The drivers were excellent and the shuttle was very clean. The drivers knew the area very well and pointed out bits of information about places that they passed... The parking was very convenient and your daily fee allowed you to leave your car there until 4:00 p.m. the day of checkout which was amazing! Breakfast was very, very crowded but had all the usual Holiday Inn staples...such as their yummy cinnamon buns. The hotel is not large, but the hotel made good use of the space that they had in their lobby/breakfast area. Across the street, we discovered a Winterfest area with ice skating, food vendors, bonfires, etc. It is open all winter long and was such a cute family friendly area...highly recommended if you are looking for something to do! Thanks for a great stay!
