We had to call security 3 times to have them come attempt to quiet the loud neighbors next door to us. We even had earplugs and were awakened. It was awful! Probably wouldn't stay here again. We like to sleep peacefully.

Dear jgpgirl, Very sorry to hear about the guests that kept you awake during the night. Our Loss Prevention team does walk all of the floors and will let guests know to keep it down if they become to loud for others to hear. I know that doesn't make up for what happened and I'm very sorry that you had... More

We had a few days after visiting family down at the shore and visited center city to see Book of Mormon and take in the historic sites. Reading Terminal Market around the corner, good restaurants in walking distance. Rooms are clean, kitchenettes included in all rooms. Beds are very comfortable. Fitness center is handy. Continental breakfast included. Staff is friendly,... More

The location can't be beat. You can walk everywhere in the city centre. Staff are wonderful and friendly. Breakfast is abundant and included. A quiet night's sleep. Rooms are clean, though the furniture is a bit shabby and some of it should be replaced. It will be our Philly base in the future.

I stayed here a few weeks ago, and found the hotel to be very comfortable and convenient. A few notes: 1) Rather than renting a car, I took the train (SEPTA) from the airport to Suburban Station. It was an easy trip, and the station entrance was just on the other side of city hall from the hotel. 2) The... More

Our first stay at this hotel was over a year ago while our apartment was being renovated. We had to stay for two weeks with our cats and this pet friendly hotel was wonderful. The hotel staff were able to make arrangements that our apartment never secured prior to our stay. The staff was friendly and efficient. So, when we... More

Very friendly! Great view of the City Hall on the 10th floor. Very convenient to all the attractions! Room was a little dated but overall it was clean. The breakfast was included and was one of the best we have ever had with Marriott. We avoided the valet parking so we would not have to deal with it. We parked... More

As a loyal Marriott person I have stayed in all of the Marriotts in Center City and while they are all nice, the Residence Inn is definitely my favorite. The rooms are a really nice size and include a nice size kitchenette with full size fridge, oven and microwave. Beds are super comfy and I have always found the rooms... More

This was my first stay at a Residence Inn and definitely not my last! It's more of a long term rental but I think a great alternative to even a hotel suite. ATMOSPHERE: It's a simple lobby area, but what makes this place shine are the location, amenities, and rooms. It's located near City Hall, meaning close to the SEPTA... More

I stayed here for a business trip because my usual choices were sold out. The one bedroom suite was functional but a limitless small and dated. The service was fine and the free breakfast $ evening snack were a nice bonus. The rate was comparable to the full service hotel rates I usually pay so it was a decent value... More

Arrived early and they got us into an upgraded room 5.5 hours early. Hotel staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Room was very clean and comfortable. We look forward to returning to this hotel next time we are in Philadelphia. The location was convenient and close to Reading Terminal Market. Also a nice walk to local neighborhoods and attractions.
