Love the concept of old & new. The hotel is located within a historical building with beautiful classic interior and trendy modern touch. Just a short walk away from everything in city centre including shopping, cityhall, train station, Reading Terminal Market (convenient for all the good food). Clean, comfortable and spacious room. Very good service from front desk (I think... More

I've just returned home from a very brief stay in Philadelphia. I had arrived at the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown approximately 10am, several hours earlier than check in. The very nice and professional desk staff were able to check me in and provide a king size room without prior asking. The room was quite large as city hotels go, with the... More

Beautiful historic hotel in nice location--walking distance to restaurants/shopping. Nice size room with mini fridge, friendly staff, good rate. Plenty of parking garages in area to save on hotel parking cost.

This hotel is located right by the subway and trolly lines so it is easy to get to from 30th Street station. It is also a quick walk to Independence National Park, (about 7 blocks). The room was nice and clean. Room had a mini fridge, which was quite and unnoticeable at night. Bathroom was nice with sink outside so... More

I stayed here on business travel and I am glad I selected it. It was a very beautiful hotel. It is right by city hall---which is the most beautiful city hall I have ever seen. You are close to a couple of metro stops, I used the metro every day as it was very easy (I only wish the new... More

The hotel is very nice, great location, rms are good size and kept very clean. Has a nice hotel bar. Very close to the Reading Market Terminal which is phenominal! Macy's is across the street and it holds the wannemacher organ. There are plenty of restaurants close by, and if you like walking, historic sites are within reach.Downside of hotel... More

This hotel scared me a bit at first as it is an extremely old building. To my surprise, the rooms have been renovated, were very modern, clean and beautifully decorated. The staff was welcoming and helpful when it came to things within walking distance. My room was a suite, only thing available at the time I made the reservations -... More

The room was OK. But when we went to check in some of the people behind the counter did not wear uniforms but were dressed as clearly very poor people. It was a bit creepy. Then when we went to check out we had them hold our bags while we went out to lunch. We returned to pick up our... More

I'd stay here again, especially since business brings me to Philadelphia often. On previous visits, I'd stayed a few blocks over but I enjoyed this location. We had an evening event at the Crystal Tea Room, which is why I booked this hotel. It was only a block and a half, and in dress attire, I didn't want to schlepp... More

Located in the heart of town. This Courtyard is in a cool, old building and so it has a lot more atmosphere than most. Across the street from City hall and very close to Reading Terminal Market. Only a few blocks from many other attractions. Good rooms.
