Starting with valet Raymond we had wonderful staff experiences. Everyone we encountered (valet, front desk, breakfast room) was happy, welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed a reasonably quiet suite at the end of a hallway - able to see a bit of view from our window and could hear the sounds of city hustle and bustle. The breakfast buffet seemed to... More

I traveled to this property for the Made In America Festival during Labor Day weekend. Kelly (I believe that was her name) at the Front Desk was great. She placed me in a room that was on a high floor with a view, just as I requested. The view was amazing and so was the room. Kelly is an asset... More

City center Residence Inn is a very convenient hotel, directly across the street from the city hall. We had easy access to the train to the airport, as well as other public transportation to reach sights such as theBattleship New Jersey. The central location also allowed easy walks to many tourist attraction such as The Liberty Bell and the Reading... More

The first thing I remember is pulling up in front of the hotel and being helped by a Valet named Rasheed he had this huge smile on his face and was so polite he had another valet named Ray help me with my luggage. They exported me to the front desk where I talked to Sarah she gave me a... More

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

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
