Kent Lakes, NY
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Excellent location within a couple blocks of Independence Hall east of Broad Street. Accomodations are fairly basic but solid. Surprisingly good view of South Philly. Parking on premises, which was key, traveling with 9 month-old twins.

The room décor was dated. Worn carpeting, dated and broken furniture, etc. Very uncomfortable and noisy. My "free upgrade" included a broken desk/table and needing to call for towels to be delivered as the room had none. Wi-Fi was inconsistent and hospitality was average at best. By the way, I'm an IHG Rewards Member, and I do not plan to...

I can't say enough good things about our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Midtown. From our initial check-in to our final check-out, the front desk staff was very friendly and attentive, and helpful with suggestions for dinner.
