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...

hotel has no ref or mic in rooms cleaning comes to early 7:00 of course food is lousy and high priced as usual parking is 48.00 a nite and you have to be escorted to your car every time you want to go to it which of course you have to shell out more tips

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

The options for Marriott loyalists are limited in downtown Philadelphia, making this property a frequent destination for me. It's gigantic and always packed, which can be either a positive or a negative, depending on your tastes. The lobby is constantly bustling, the bar is always vibrant -- it's a fun vibe, if you're into that scene. The hotel is also... More

Great location & very close to City Hall & Reading Terminal Market. Clean, nice rooms, nice staff. Ask to stay on higher floors (less noise), but be prepared to wait for the really slow elevator! Electric key cards very sensitive, keep away from magnets (ex. Ladies w/ Baggalini purses).

This hotel was in the ideal location but so many other features brought it down to a 3*. First off, parking is ridiculous for a night. Yes, I understand were in the city center but other garages around are much cheaper. The next concern of mine was that prior to getting into bed we found blood on our sheets. This... More

When I booked this reservation through Priceline, I had no idea where I would end up (but I only searched 4 & 4.5 stars). When I got Marriott I did not think much UNTIL I arrived and oh my goodness! What an amazing hotel! Located right next door (literally steps away, across the street) from the convention center. Perfect location.... More
