This was my second stay here in about 6 weeks. This hotel has a lot going for it: friendly staff to greet you and help you find everything you need, from great restaurants to the closest Walgreens. Free wifi to get your work done (or for the kids). Excellent breakfast including actual hot food and to-go containers if needed. Central... More

Our family of four was in town for the weekend for a gymnastics meet and enjoyed our stay. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Although, the building overall is dated and showing its age, we loved our stay. We truly enjoyed the hot breakfast which is a rare included amenity when staying in the city. The breakfast was a...

I love this hotel. This is truly a gem. My lady, mother-in-law stayed here on New Year's Eve into New Year's Day. There was enough space in the 1 Bedroom Suite, 1 king, sofa bed for my mother-in-law to have her privacy and my lady and I. The price of the stay itself was a steal in relation to all... More

Let me start out by saying this trip was not planned. My husband fell and broke his femur while we were visiting in Philadelphia. After shuttles and enormous parking fees back and forth to the hospital I noticed Residence Inn and walked in. I was looking for a hotel where I could walk back and forth to the hospital. Marc...

Location, Location, Location. Right in the heart of town and clustered within a Marriott trio of hotels, Residence in is a prime launching spot for a visit to Philadelphia. The hotel is on the more modest side with respect to decor and accommodations, but it serves to provide fair priced rooms. Breakfast is included and it was welcomed and full... More

Dear Quoteme, Just wanted to thank you for the nice comments regarding the hotel view from your room and the complimentary daily breakfast buffet. Very sorry that the outside valet service was up to expectations. Unfortunately, this past weekend was the start of the annual Auto Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. With thousands coming daily to the event it... More

My first impression of this hotel is how convenient its location is. It is right in the heart of downtown, just across city hall, and very close to Chinatown (about 2 blocks), where some restaurants are open until 1am. The most important thing that I look in a hotel is its cleanliness. I can say that this hotel is clean.... More

This hotel is right in the centre...in the middle of downtown and bang opp city centre. What more would you ask from location point of view. Everything is almost walking distance - restaurants, malls, market, clubs and cafes...you are all set. I would take off 1 start as i was quite not happy with the room layout and size, compared...

My friend and I spent one night in this hotel and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located in the city center, within walking distance of major attractions in Philadelphia. We had a warm welcome, we asked for advice on places to visit and the local cuisine. The room was spacious, bright and very clean, the wifi worked great. The... More
