This hotel is fine for what it is. A moderately priced (by city standards) business hotel. The recently updated room was nice. Bed was comfortable. Fitness center was better than expected with good selection of cardio and weights. I just didn't get a warm feeling from the hotel. It's in an historic building and feels cavernous and drafty. Food at... More

I stayed at the Courtyard for a meeting at the Convention Center which was one block away, and could not have had a better experience! The room was clean and quiet, and the hotel felt very secure. I had to spend a night away with a family member nearby, and the hotel staff very kindly stored my extra belongings and... More

The hotel is very close to everything, right in the middle of Philly, overlooking the main square. It's housed in a beautiful old building dating back to the 1920s. I hear it has amazing views of City Hall - but you need to pay a "city view" tax of 25 USD per room per night. It's literally close to everything,... More

Stayed there for one night so we could see some of the sites in Philadelphia, was a great location as you can walk to almost everywhere. The rooms are just renovated so they are new while the whole hotels has a nice old style feel too it. It is pricy though and if you drive you'll have to get valet... More

I loved this hotel. It is housed in a very old building in Philadelphia and the original features of the lobby and whole ground floor have been preserved beautifully. The rooms are quite striking (black and white), modern, and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was large with a tub and nice tile work. The staff were extremely friendly. The hotel could... More

As has been my experience with Marriott properties, the employees at the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown were first rate. I appreciated their genuinely friendly and helpful spirit during my two night stay April 10-12, 2015. My room, 606, faced west with a good view and it was spacious enough. I wonder, though, if it had been renovated as stated. Some of... More

We took our 8 year old grandson to Philly for his birthday trip. We had a spacious corner room on the 8th floor which worked well for the three of us. The decor is new and for the most part works but there was no reading light on one side of the queen bed which was a problem. Beds were... More

While visiting Philly for a show I got a great rate at the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown. The hotel is very clean, friendly staff and great views of the city(historic part.) Within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Highly recommend a visit to Reading Terminal Market as well. Will definitely stay again.

I requested an early check-in on Friday morning, and was pleasantly surprised to have it instantly confirmed. Starbucks downstairs was clutch after a red-eye. Room was very spacious and decorated with very modern furniture and art. Bed was very comfortable. We stayed one night here and one night at the Ritz-Carlton and honestly I'd prefer to stay at the Courtyard... More
