The hotel itself is exactly what one expects from Marriott. A good room at a reasonable price that is clean and well cared for. Good location to enjoy your stay for business or pleasure. My one big negative is the total lack of reasonable parking. The hotel provides none and you are left to pay hefty amounts at a public... More

Dear Otto K, Thank you for taking the time in filling out comments regarding your stay with us. Thanks for the great comments regarding the cleanliness and the service that was provided to you during your time here. Unfortunately with being located in Downtown Philadelphia there is no self parking at most of the hotels in the city. We do... More

This hotel is in a great location close to a lot of shops and restaurants so you are able to walk. We stayed on the 5th floor and it very quiet and the room was clean. The hotel staff were very friendly. Enjoyed our stay

I stayed three nights in mid-October for a nearby business meeting. All employees were friendly, helpful, and would go out of their way to assist guests. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The bed was very restful and the pillows provided exactly the right amount of support. The linens were expensive and impressive. The television was 1080p HD with... More

The location of this hotel is great, right next to the Reading Terminal Market and within walking distance of Independence Hall and the Franklin Institute. While the room looked like it needed some updating, we could tell that it had been well kept and it was very clean. The complimentary breakfast was very good and the dining area was not... More

My family stayed in the Residence Inn Philadelphia Center City this past weekend as we visited a local college for our son. The location is fantastic. It is center city right across from City Hall. The Reading Market is walking distance as is the Convention Center and even Ben Franklin Parkway. Market St with its history and cool bars is... More

I was in town for a conference at the Philly convention center. You really can't beat the location. It has a cool art deco exterior right next to city hall and the Mason's temple. It is one block from the convention center and right near Macy's and Reading Terminal Market. It is a short walk to restaurants, shops, and bars... More

Before my weekend stay for my birthday, I had stayed in every brand type of Marriott except Residence Inn. Based on my stay, I think I'll be sticking to Courtyards or regular Marriott hotels. Here's all the details so you can decide (this was my 5th trip to Philly and 4th hotel there I've tried). Location: It really couldn't be... More

Dear bumper 1965, Thank you for taking the time in giving us your review from your recent stay. Thanks for the nice comments regarding how the staff was very helpful and friendly during your stay.

Needed to stay in Philly when daughter was going to a music festival at Festival Pier. Chose this because of subway station being around the corner. Was quite happy with the choice. Room was comfortable but a bit dated. We were able to check in early which was nice. Valet was very friendly. Kelly at registration asked if we had... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Residence Inn in Center City. We were visiting for a girls weekend and enjoyed our stay. From the moment we drove up and met our valet to the day we checked out, everyone was very friendly and helpful. Getting our car parked was seamless, and although the parking is $48 a night, it...

The Residence Inn at this location is a great place to stay if you are a couple of tourists about to see the history in Philadelphia for the first time. You don't need to know anything except the address to plug into the GPS. After that, you can walk to everything from this location. We stayed two nights and purchased... More
