I recently stayed at HI Express while attending a trade show at Philly Convention Center. It was a short walk to Convention Hall - 4-5 blocks. Philly is easy to get around and the weather was nice so the daily walk was fine. The endless number of beggers and vagrants was a bit of a shock. There are panhandlers everywhere, so be forewarned, you'll need your tough skin to stay downtown at this location. There are many great restaurants near this hotel and the Terminal Market is a fun experience.
The hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming. I rarely tip the housekeepiing, but they were doing such an excellent job, I felt I needed to. The only negative was the belman, of all things.... sourpuss and rude.
The room was clean and I took one near the top, view was nice of the downtown area. I think our rate was $179 for a downtown hotel when everything was sold out, so this was an excellent deal.
