With the grandparents watching the kids, my wife and I planned a 25-hour getaway to Philadelphia. The goals were threefold – enjoy uninterrupted sleep, revel in the Reading Terminal market, and window shop on Walnut Avenue. For our hotel choice, the key criteria was predictability. We wanted something familiar which would deliver a restful night’s sleep. The Marriott was mission... More

I just stayed here for a conference earlier this week. The location is absolutely perfect. Within walking distance to tons of great places to eat, tourist attractions, etc. But I wasn't "wowed" by the service. The doormen were very friendly and helpful, front desk staff always seemed too stressed to be pleasant, and every time I went back to my... More

We stayed in this hotel for our family reunion. Lovely clean rooms and very helpful, professional, friendly staff. The parking costs are outrageous. Many of our family members parked at neighboring parking garages. Stop holding people and their cars hostage with ridiculous parking rates. Great location. A few feet from the Reading market (a must visit).

Stayed there with the Veterans Games. I was overwhelmed with the terrific support of this staff. A week flew by and not one complaint. The Housekeeping was always on time and extremely clean. Yes, it is an incredible location to a plethora of attractions.

This and the courtyard Marriott were the only hotels I could find in Philly that you could book in advance a room for 5. Unlike most cities the maximum capacity has very rigid even if you called the hotel and connecting rooms were difficult if not impossible to arrange in advance. With 3 little children we did not want to... More

Stay away from the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. They're one of the select properties who don't truly value their elite rewards program members. To begin, the lines in the lobby are long and poorly managed. I got in the shorter elite line, however they only had one representative helping guests int he elite line while the other 4 or 5 were...

Took the Amtrak train from Washington DC and spent only one night at the hotel. The hotel was one of the biggest hotels i've stayed at. The hotel was in a very busy area and plenty of dining options including the Hard Rock Cafe right outside the front door. About a 15 minute walk to Independence Hall and the Liberty... More

Great location and fantastic concierge service! For a first time visitor to Philadelphia, this was the perfect hotel! I highly recommend it. There is a starbucks on site, which is my favorite stop when traveling for business. I am a light sleeper and my request for a quiet room was taken care of.

We stayed one night here as we were attending a wedding nearby and the bride booked a block of rooms. This is a huge hotel - we were on the 19th floor - and the lobby area was always packed, no matter what time of day. Our room was clean, serviceable but blandly decorated. The bed was very comfortable. The... More
