Stayed at the Marriott Downtown Philadelphia for a boys trip over a long weekend to see a football and hockey game. The hotel was was right downtown in a great location for touring around the city. Next door was the Market which has everything you could imagine for food. The hotel was walking distance from the historic district and a... More

I recently had my daughters wedding at the Marriott Downtown Philadelphia. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the entire experience. Gerard, the hotel appointed planner was beyond my highest expectations. The wedding was beautiful and the 50 rooms we booked were wonderful. All of our guest raved about the professionalism of the hotel staff and the comfort of the... More

This is a typical convention-oriented Marriott with a large lobby, acceptable restaurant/bar, and fairly good recreation facilities including a small lap pool and fitness center. You can access the hotel directly from the Jefferson (formerly Market East) rail station. The concierge lounge on the top floor is relatively large and comfortable; breakfast was adequate with mostly cold items. Upon checking... More

Hotel has a nice entry and first-floor restaurant and bar. Hallways to room are very echo-y, so you see lots off "shhh" signs. Rooms are...OK. They appear to be dated with lime green and brown carpet, but maintenance assured me that the carpet gets replaced every 4 years. OK, fine, I'll buy into that, but...lime green and brown? Fail. Bed... More

We just checked out of The Philadelphia Marriott. What a great stay. We have been Platinum Marriott members fro over a year and had yet to get any kind of real upgrade. Well last night this hotel gave us The Presidential Suite. We were in Philly to see all the Christmas lights so what a treat to see the huge... More

I stayed here last month and I think it was undergoing renovation or they had some sort of undergoing conference. That being said I'm easy to please but one irritating issue was the bathroom. They are so outdated and looked like something you would experience in a run down hotel or even a hospital shower. I just wasn't a fan.... More

Stayed here 9/20/14-9/21/14 for Philadelphia Half-Marathon. Room was clean and adequate for three of us (husband, wife and daughter). Staff was accommodating. Really liked the location and proximity to stores, restaurants and other activities (e.g. Reading Terminal Market). Parked nearby (2 blocks away) at PPA AUTOPARK AT JEFFERSON (10th & Ludlow Streets) and paid only $20 for 24 hours. Carried... More

If you are a leisure traveler, I suggest avoiding this hotel, unless you thrive on irritability while on vacation.... If you are a conference attendee, pack extra patience. Our story - My husband attended a conference in the hotel and I participated in the Philly Half Marathon. Many of our fellow guests fell into the same categories. First and foremost,... More

Very large hotel next to the convention center. Good location, easy to get around town from here. Big hotel that caters to convention goers and wedding parties on weekends. Nothing special about the hotel, but also what you would expect from a Marriott. So, good value and no guesswork.
