We had a 4 day stay at this extended stay hotel. The location is quite good, one block from Reading Terminal Market and about half way between the historical sites and the museums along Benjamin Franklin Parkway. We stayed in a larger studio with a king size bed and found it large enough for our family of 3. The bathroom... More

My Husband and I booked here for a Summer Getaway to see the Impressionist Exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. We normally love Marriotts and had just stayed at the Courtyard in King Of Prussia the night before arriving in Center City. Check in was seamless---early with no issues! Great Start! Some of the furniture is a little worn--pull... More

We stayed overnight as part of a dinner date and night out in Philadelphia. The Residence Inn is located in Center City close to city hall, putting you in the center of the action for restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. The Reading Terminal Market and convention center are about a block away. The major commuter train lines and right underneath, since... More

Was in town for a convention and this was one of the official hotels. The lobby is small but nice. Glad I didn't have a car due to valet parking rates. Macy's and city center is right across the street and lots of things within walking distance. I had problems with the air conditioning requiring multiple calls to the front... More

I was here since May 2015 for an internship and I stayed at the residence inn. I must say the staff here is excellent and very attentive to all of my needs. Because it was my first time away from home, they made sure I felt comfortable and welcome everyday. This is honestly the best hotel I've stayed at in... More

Excellent location in the heart of the city. Good sized rooms and helpful hotel employees. The breakfast was amazing! Tons of hot items, fruit, granola, waffles, eggs, etc. A wonderful way to start off the day.

Great little hotel, nice sized suites and very affordable. We spent two nights in Philadelphia as part of a road trip and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff and front desk were extremely helpful and friendly, and the hotel is in a great location - right across from city hall, which is a beautiful building. Plenty of shopping and restaurants within... More

The moment we checked in, we knew we had picked the right hotel when Karnel welcomed us with warmth and down to earth attitude. Breakfast was a wonderful experience. It did not only have the most food options of any Marriott hotel I have been to but what made it more enjoyable were the two ladies (one was Lenora) who... More

I stayed at this hotel for over 9 months and did not experience any issues at all. The staff were extremely friendly and always willing to help. It felt like a second home. Breakfast was good and the staff were always extremely friendly. I loved the occasional events they did with wine and food, as well as their dinners on... More
