Yes, the location is good and the service is fine but the hotel rooms are in desperate need of a refresh. Mattress beginning to sag, coach feels like you're sitting on a board, lighting is old... you get the idea. This will not be our hotel of choice the next time were in Philadelphia.

Had a great trip to the Residence Inn Philadelphia Center City hotel. The location is convenient, the accommodations are neat and clean, and the staff is superb! The General Manager, Ed Farrington went out of his way to make sure I had a comfortable stay. Had 1 slight issue with my water and it was resolved by Ed immediately. Cannot... More

I've stayed at the Residence Inn City Center before I became a Trip Advisor contributor, sometimes for extended stays - this time was for 2 weeks, I've stayed before for a month, sometimes just for a few days. I keep coming back because it feels like home - the apartment-like lodging (sitting room, kitchen, workspace, bedroom) is great,, the perfect... More

We stayed 6 nights at the Residence Inn in Philadelphia. We we're celebrating our 25 th Anniversary so they gave us a beautiful room on the top floor with an outstanding view of old City Hall. The hotel offers 2 room suites with breakfast and wifi included. The suites have a kitchenette ( complete with plates and utensils) , a... More

I haven't stopped telling my family and friends about this hotel. We only stayed one night but, in that short time, our experience left us with a good feeling about the hotel and about the people of Philadelphia. David Fasler, the Front Office Manager, was truly exceptional. When I spoke to him in advance of our arrival and requested an... More

Stayed here a few nights last week for business. Location is as central as it gets. Personnel is extremely polite and helpful. Suite is a pretty good size and is very clean. Layout is slightly awkward but still very workable. Bed and bedding were clean and comfortable. I never had a chance to try the free breakfast or evening hospitality... More

This hotel has an absolutely fantastic location. It may not be the prettiest Residence Inn I have stayed at, buy it doesn’t get any more centrally located than across the street from the historic City Hall and the John Wanamaker building. The staff is very friendly and helpful from the front desk bunch to the breakfast crew and all those... More

Dear IBS Tours, Thanks for the comments regarding your stay with us. We're very lucky to be located directly downtown by City Hall, Reading Terminal Market, China Town and a short walk to all of the historical sites. Very sorry that the HVAC wasn't working properly during your time here. Please don't hesitate in contacting us at the front office... More

My son, his friend and I stayed for two nights recently to attend a convention. The lobby is nothing to write home about, but the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. On the 2nd floor, there's a lounge area as well as a breakfast area. The included breakfast is varied and nicely prepared. The staff there are also very welcoming... More

We had a week long meeting at the convention center and chose to stay at the Marriott Residence Inn. We had a nice stay and would stay here again. The room was small (though they called it a suite). The staff was great. The breakfast was worth eating and the location was great. We had very good experience.

This is a good hotel for a business trip. It's located in the middle of the city with shops and restaurants right outside the door. The rooms were basic but clean. The free breakfast in the morning was also basic but a nice amenity to have. My only complaint would be the thinness of the walls. I was awoken by... More
