This is not your typical Courtyard by Marriott. It is an architectural beauty that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The location is amazing; the only place more centrally located is the majestic Philadelphia City Hall across the street! Indeed, the building housing the Courtyard was built in 1926 as an annex to City Hall. The Masonic Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania (a must-tour) is kitty-corner from the hotel. Reading Terminal Market (a must-visit) and the Philadelphia Convention Center are two blocks away. And there is MUCH more of quintessential Philadelphia within a four-block radius. We valet-parked our car on Friday evening ($40/24 hours) and didn’t touch it again until Sunday afternoon. The rooms are classic Courtyard—clean, comfortable, nondescript but pleasant, and are well-equipped for computing needs (we especially liked the iDock for our iPhone). The room and bathroom had isolated spots of wear & tear but nothing more than what we would expect in a large city hotel located two blocks from the convention center. Now that we’ve had the comfort and convenience of staying here, any place else in Philadelphia is going to be a tough sell.
