3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The staff here was very nice and accommodating. Every time I called down to the lobby or needed assistance the staff were very polite and quick to respond. My only issue was that if you want a quite uneventful stay this is probably not the place for you. I was in need of a quite easily accessible hotel for a... More

I stayed at the Marriott last weekend for a conference, and it was a comfortable stay but not "special." A large hotel adjacent to the city's convention center with conference facilities of its own, it clearly hosts a tremendous number of events, and the whole set-up has an assembly line, run-em-in, run-em-out feel. After checking in online, I was hurriedly... More

This hotel is in a great location- right across the street from Reading Terminal and near the Convention Center. My room was clean, the staff was very nice and I was really impressed by the gym. The only two reasons I wouldn't give this hotel five stars are: the pool is really gross- it's made of plastic and has so... More

We were in Philly to see a show and were focused on a good location. The Marriott Downtown gave us that, as well as a clean, comfortable room. It's right across from the Reading Terminal and a short walk or Uber ride to pretty much everything else.

We were really pleased with this hotel! We didn't stay long, but everything was great. We had requested 2 rooms with 2 beds in each room to be connecting before we checked in. Unfortunately the day of, our reservation had not put into connecting rooms, so at check-in, there was almost nothing available. Thankfully, the gentleman at the front desk... More

I stayed here at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown for several nights and was pleased with all of the high level service provided to me by the hotel staff all over the hotel. I look forward to my next trip and plan on staying here again!

Enjoyed my first stay. Beautiful hotel. However, did not have a good experience with front desk or the manager on duty at my time of check in, I believe his name was Jordan. I presented a Marriott Pleasure discount rate form at the time of check in. While the person who gave it to me was in err, as a... More

Typical old Marriott hotel in the center of downtown by the historic district and attached to the convention center. The rooms are spacious, mini fridge and large safe included. The bed mattress was very comfortable but to cover yourself there is a sheet and a heavy quilt with no thin blanket in between; for us this is a sleeping discomfort.... More

Don't expect perfect conditions. While at the front desk checking in, ask what is NOT in the room, then, if you want it, they will supply it. It saves a trip downstairs. Plenty of towels in room. Windows not very clean, but were very cold due to the freezing weather outside...i.e.. not insulated. Valet, attentive, Concierge, adaptive to many irritable... More
