I made a reservation several weeks in advance for the July 4th weekend. I specifically called the hotel twice personally to request a king size bed and also filled out their special request form. When we arrived near midnight on the appointed date, we were told that the only room available had a queen sized bed and that it was... More

We stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom suite. Plenty of room for family of 4. Didn't use the kitchen because we walked to China Town and the Reading Terminal Market as well as other area restaurants. It was also walking distance to many other sights as well including Independence Park. Breakfast was included and was very good. It included... More

Clean, great matress / bed, nice room layout and awesome fitness center. Location was great! Parking was $20 and difficult if pulling a small trailer but the staff made it work. Awesome breakfast!

I stayed here for a business trip in May because the Marriott next door was full. I don't normally stay at Residence Inn, so I don't really have anything to compare it to, except I didn't get any perks for being a Marriott gold status member. The location was great and I could walk everywhere, but this was not the... More

I stayed for two nights over the weekend, and can't say enough good things about the hotel! It was in a great location - right across from City Hall. Check in was quick and smooth by friendly staff. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The king size bed was the best part of the room. The free continental... More

This hotel is right smack in the middle of Philadelphia. Right across from the City Hall. You cannot get more central to this. Everything is within walking distance in all directions. The location is ideal. However, due to the location, parking is $$$$$ and you must use valet parking (luckily I didn't rent a car this time). The rooms are... More

My husband and I stayed at the Philadelphia Residence Inn for two nights over the Memorial Day weekend. We arrived at the hotel around 11:00am and the check-in staff was very friendly. Unfortunately, the King room we had reserved two months prior via the Marriott website was unavailable. Instead, we were issued a double queen room for the hearing impaired.... More

I am a Marriott Platinum member and have stayed at just about every Marriott in Philadelphia. I can't stand the downtown full service Marriott and although the Courtyard(adjacent to the Residence Inn) is one of the best Courtyard in the country, I would still pick the Residence Inn because of the staff. They are friendly, courtesy and make you feel... More

ICK!!! This place is old and stinky. Certainly nowhere close to standards I am accustomed to from Marriott. On the plus side...beautiful view of city hall from our room. Back to the negative...verrrrrrrry small bathroom; smell from neighbor's cooking lingering in the hallway; small bed (full not queen).

We picked this hotel due to the location and the amenities. Having a toddler the kitchen is a HUGE help! The hotel is in a great location at broad and market, convenient to many shops, restaurants etc. The bellman upon arrival was extremely helpful with our enormous amount of luggage that required 2 luggage carts! However the remainder of the... More
