My family and I chose Residence Inn as a package deal with Sesame Place. We couldn't be more pleased with our entire experience! Super clean hotel in general. Very nice room! Very comfortable. Extremely friendly staff. Shuttle Service to and from the park was great. Awesome breakfast in the morning. Nice indoor pool area. We couldn't be happier with our... More

Spacious rooms with kitchen and living room, good location across from city hall, very strong WiFi. The staff was very courteous and accommodating for a busy weekend. The location really helped us navigate around the city. Would gladly stay again

We are just back from a week's stay at the Residence Inn. We were there with toddler twins in a two-room suite, and the hotel was great about getting us two pack-n-plays. The entire staff was incredibly helpful -- whether it was to get two carseats down to a rental car or to find high chairs for the breakfast. Having... More

Rooms were a bit tired and needed attention. Bathroom was about as tiny as they come. Room was clean and fairly spacious but it needed a makeover. I've stayed at better Residence Inn properties.' Location is a selling point and staff were very attentive and service oriented.

Dear Dana, Thanks for taking the time in giving us feedback from your stay. Very sorry regarding the size of the bathrooms. I'm glad that the rest of the room size was more to your liking. I'm pretty sure when they converted the hotel they had the size of the rest of the room to be more inviting to guests... More

Spent the weekend of the 4th and loved it. Larger studio had a very complete kitchen w/almost full sized appliances…not hotel sized. Rm was quite large and plenty of space for two adults. But service not up to usual Marriott standards. The desk crew working Thursday pm thru Friday pm gave decent service but almost as an afterthought. We and... More

The room was spacious and clean, and the staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful! The room could have used some sprucing by way of updating/renovating, but nothing that was even worth removing a partial star form the rating. Seriously, the staff was amazing and I highly recommend anyone going to Philly to stay here. The location could not be better,... More

Stayed there recently with my family, we were 5. Rooms were great and accommodating. The gym was very nice and properly equipped, and you had everything you needed from a food and drink perspective with in a block. The challenges we experienced were with valet, it took approx. 40 minutes to get our car (which 30 minutes is average), and... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in June to celebrate his upcoming birthday as well as our anniversary. Due to schedule conflicts at home, this was the only weekend we could get away to commemorate both occasions. Front Desk Staff ~ Kelly R. is exceptional!

The hotel is located right across the City Hall in the heart of the downtown. It offers spacious, clean rooms with Marriott's amenities and hospitality. Cumulatively I have stayed here for over an an year over the course of last 3 years and have loved staying at this property. Will definitely stay here when am back in Philly.

This is a great hotel for locals and travelers to explore the city. Clean and hospitable staff was wonderful. You could ask them for suggestions on local hot spots to try while visiting. Transportation in the city was very easy to obtain. Breakfast every morning was way more than continental compared to others. You have a kitchenette in your room... More
