“Great room! Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We stayed a few nights in this hotel last week. In town to do some historical sightseeing, and not wanting to worry about using the car, this was a great solution. We put the car in valet and either walked or used the Big Bus Tour (stop 5 is right next door!) to get around. The room was BIG and the beds were outstanding! These were the 2nd best hotel beds I've ever slept in, (1st being sleep # beds.) We had a corner room with a view of William Penn on top of city hall! This was a beautiful building and very secure.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room, they are bigger with more windows.

Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to read that you loved the room and our beds. The corner room has the best view of the City Hall especially at night when spot lights lit up from the top of surrounding buildings spotlighting City Hall building. Thank you again for staying with us.

We were in town for a Phillies game and found this hotel to be the most reasonably priced. The location was absolutely perfect to hit the Subway to the game, the rooms were clean and larger than expected. The staff was very professional and valet's were quick. I would certainly stay here again, especially to enjoy the extremely comfortable beds.

This Courtyard is in a vintage building in downtown Philadelphia and you get the feeling you are in a higher end property than you are. Rarely do you get a Courtyard with so many floor options. I was quickly in and out so I didn't get to use any of the amenities but the restaurant looked very fresh and modern and there is a Starbucks in the building, a Dunkin Donuts within the block. A little congested getting in and out car wise since it is located in the City Hall loop area of Center City

Visited this past weekend and it was a very nice hotel. Our room was HUGE!!! We ended up having an accessible room, so the shower took some getting used to...but all in all a great location, a beautifully decorated hotel...even if the overall trip wasn't all that great.

If you are looking to stay in Center City Philadelphia and don't want to spend an arm & leg doing so, this is the hotel for you. This hotel sits in the best location for almost anything you'd want to do in Center City. It's right across the street from City Hall, a block from the Philadelphia Convention Center, and (most importantly) a block away from the best food in the city at Reading Terminal.
The hotel is what you'd expect of any Marriott brand hotel; updated and well kept. Overall, I had a great stay and I would definitely stay again!

Regular visitor to Philadelphia so I've stayed at quite a few hotels in the Center City district.

I stayed at the Courtyard last weekend (8/10 - 8/11). Check in was smooth and easy (at 1pm) and I got room 1236. The layout of the hotel is a little awkward, and I got a room facing Market Street.

Loved the room...a little bigger than rooms at some of the other hotels I've visited. Mini-fridge but no microwave, though. TV is huge and has a nice selection of HD channels.

Didn't get a chance to visit the hotel bar but definitely stopped by the Starbucks on the way out....would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: High floors get better views...try to get a corner room for a nice view of City Hall and the skyline...

First off, I have to say that the property was gorgeous-very clean and such a great location! Exceeded my expectations! It was smooth sailing from check in to check out. The gentleman who had checked us in-Jason, was so helpful and really went that extra mile to make sure we would have a great experience- He even helped us out with suggestions on places to go in the city (which, we took him up on his suggestions, and they were great!) From our servers-to the gentleman who brought up our rollaway bed-to Jason at the front desk..Every employee we encountered was helpful and pleasant! I will absolutely stay at and recommend this property to anyone!
