This Courtyard is in a beautiful 1920's building adjacent to Town Hall and an easy walk to Broad Street, Reading Terminal, the Convention Center and Chinatown, as well as the subway. There are a number of good places to eat within a block. Two other Marriott properties are adjacent/nearby but neither has the panache of this building. The rooms have 11 foot ceilings and large windows (though it is sitting among other high rises, so no great views in the rooms I have had during my 5-6 stays). The service has been excellent and attentive, with one slack night at a check in.
Three warnings to do with parking: 1) avoid a room facing out on the Marriott nest door, as valet service driver coming and going in Marriott garage honk the horns (one lane ramp, l think) and that can be heard several stories up; 2) Be aware of the high parking fee - at $40 it's higher than Marriotts in DC and nearly as bad as New York. You can park yourself nearby for ten buck less, if desired, and that might not be a bad idea, as more than once it has been a long wait for a car in the morning, even when giving them 30 minutes notice. Great staff here, too, but just plan ahead parking wise.
