I was at the hotel for a conference which was held in the hotel. The room was nice and clean. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The location next to the Reading Market Terminal is excellent. Everything was within walking distance of the hotel.

In the center of the city, easy access; amazingly quiet. Wonderful pool. Concierge lounge was only ok, always crowded, noisy, rushed food. Not pleasant for a quiet moment away from the day's activities. Staff very kind and helpful.

Typical Marriott hotel; nice rooms, nice service, clean etc. A fabulous location for exploring Philadelphia on foot. My one complaint - I am a Platinum Elite, and always reserve 2 rooms because we have another couple who always travels with us. Marriott ALWAYS sends the Platinum gift to the room occupied by the other couple; not the room occupied by... More

I am in the hospitality industry and travel a fair amount. I offer reviews as appropriate and do so to express appreciation and possible suggestions. We were attending a national association meeting in March and this hotel has an excellent location near the convention center. Registration was smooth and our room was pleasant, if a bit ordinary. We had breakfast... More

Great hotel! Great Location! What more could you want! You are just steps away from all the great Philly sites and only have to cross the street to explore the fantastic Reading Market. The rooms are great! Very comfortable sleep. Only complaint: Marriott needs to join the new millenium and offer free wifi to hotel guests in the rooms.

Comfortable stay in crowded hotel on a busy weekend. Love that location makes everything so accessible by foot. Breakfast brunch is not what it was at this hotel years ago but it was an enjoyable stay. Room wasn't special but it was comfortable and clean and quiet despite being near elevator.

We come into Philly at least twice a year. We always stay at the Marriott. It is so close to many of the things we like to do. Walking distance to South Street and Walnut Street shopping. Reading Market Terminal is right across the street!!!!

I stay here 15-20 days a year, enjoy it and frequently return. Above all, the staff is tremendous - cheerful, helpful and always willing to serve. Rooms are of a good size, but not ridiculously large, although double-sized suites are available. For Marriott Elite members, the concierge lounge is a particularly nice one, with excellent breakfast, hors d'oeuvre and dessert... More

This hotel is certainly up to Marriott standards. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice (nothing special about them) and clean. My main complaint about this hotel is that it does not offer free WiFi throughout the hotel (there is free WiFi only in the lobby). I think it is outrageous for a hotel... More
