I found this hotel to be a disappointment. The room was not very clean, the service was marginal. The toilet did not flush correctly and the key did not always work in the elevator. The waitress service in the lobby bar was terrible but the bartenders were excellent. The location is outstanding.

I just spent three nights here and really enjoyed my stay. The location in downtown Philly is excellent, close to convention center, Reading terminal market, historical sites, and nightlife. The lobby is really nice with restaurant and bar. The hallways and rooms are a little dated, but very clean and comfortable. The workout and pool area are also very nice.... More

Overall this hotel is pretty dated, however it is located in the heart of the city and close to everything. If you have business downtown, I would recommend this hotel. Employees were helpful, and the rooms are acceptable. Not a 5 star, but I would stay here again if in the area.

I stayed here for three nights. Location great-across from the reading market and close to the beautiful city hall . We could walk to the avenue of the arts and to the amazing Barnes museum. The lobby is lovely. The halls were like a maze and not particularly well appointed.!The room was fine-unfortunately no cool shot on the hair dryer... More

This hotel really exemplifies the defintion of what a Marriott should stand for. When I entered the property I was transported a beautifully designed lobby with awesome decor all around. The check-in experience was awesome and I felt like I was a VIP for the night. The room was beautifully appointed with 2 decent sized double beds, huge desk area... More

It's well-located and reasonably comfortable, but too many weird things happened during my stay to give it any sort of positive review. To-wit: (1) My colleague, with whom I was travelling, booked two rooms on separate itineraries. They reserved three on one and none on the other -- meaning I was, at check-in, without a room. (2) So they find... More

Apparently it this city's policy to do roadwork - including jack hammering, and use of heavy equipment - in the overnight hours. I needed a good night's sleep, but was awakened at 2:20am by roadwork right outside my room that went on until 3:50. Thanks philly. Feelin the love.

From start to finish this hotel was amazing. Large well furnished rooms, comfortable beds and very helpful staff, you couldnt ask for more at such a great price. They really excelled themselves at the end, unfortunately I had my wallet stolen about 20 minutes before heading to the airport. I was left with no cash or cards, luckily I did... More

This is a large hotel located conveniently to the Convention Center, right across the street from the Reading Terminal Market, and within walking distance to great restaurants and shops. Other than the convenience, the hotel was a disappointment. The plumbing is old; the toilet took a couple of flushes to empty, and the bathtub filled with several inches of water... More

This is a huge Marriott next to the convention center. It can be loud and very crowded in the lobby area. The front desk and front lobby staff were great. The rest of the service was extremely slow. Housekeeping was sloppy at best. Lots of good restaurants in walking distance. The location was great.
