We had a great weekend stay at this hotel! It is in a perfect location within walking distance to most of the main areas. It is a really more of a boutique style, historic hotel. The decor was really fun! We really took advantage of being only a block from the Reading Terminal..perfect for an easy lunch and breakfast. I... More

This was probably one of my favorite hotels I've ever stayed at. It was very modern and the customer service was excellent. Check-in was quick and easy. The room was very spacious and the decor was awesome (I want it in my house now ;)). The location was perfect-right in front of Reading Terminal Market with all the food you... More

My partner Chris and I spent 3 wonderful nights here! The bed was so comfortable with lovely white laundered sheets. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. A big plus for me was having the wash basin outside of the bathroom which allowed me to use the mirror while the bathroom was in use. Staff were extremely helpful - service... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is spotlessly clean and fresh, and the room was just perfect for me. The staff is friendly and EXTREMELY helpful with even the smallest details. Special shout out to the front desk for being great during a hectic weekend! The breakfast brunch in the restaurant was tasty and full of fresh... More

When in Philadelphia, I usually stay at the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown. Certainly, it is difficult to beat the location; it is right across from City Hall, a block from the Reading Terminal, near many good restaurants, and within walking distance of the Philadelphia museums. Moreover, the rooms are well-furnished, spacious and clean. (As a Marriott Gold member, I have been... More

We stayed only one night but thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. It has a lot of history to it as it was originally built as an annex to city hall. Beautiful building plus conveniently located to all attractions. In walking distance to Reading Terminal, China Town, etc. Room was clean and beds were super comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel couldn't be located any better for sight seeing! Right in the middle of everything, quick access to bus tours, beautiful view of the historic city hall, hots spots all around at night, bar on site and safe area for exploring the night life.

I've stayed here several times when in Philly visiting my daughter. Great location, nice clean rooms, and friendly and accommodating staff. I think it's a better hotel than the Marriott located directly behind/beside it. I always try to stay here if I can.

I usually like courtyard and all Marriott facility. I was very disappointed during my stay about the lack of cleanliness. Specially at the pool and jacuzzi. At 7:30am, while I was going to do my workout, I found lot of hair on the floor, a dirty bandage. The floor was not clean at all as well. Bedroom was ok. Bedding... More

Dear nycfan10027, Thank you very much for staying with us at Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown. We are pleased to learn that you enjoyed your room, except for your inability to open the windows. As an historic building from 1926, we did keep as much of the original building treatments in tact. Also, for safety reasons, you will rarely find windows which... More
