“Philadelphia Downtown Marriott”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is my favorite hotel when visiting Philadelphia. My wife and I stayed there for the Philadelphia Half Marathon. It is a nice walk to the starting line. The staff is excellent and our room quite nice. Another plus was the fact the hotel is near a variety of different restaurants or a short cab ride to South Philly for excellent Italian food (my favorite). If you bring your car be prepared to spend about 40 plus a night (valet parking). In my opinion it is well worth the expense.

What a great find this hotel turned out to be. The location was fabulous for walking to all sights we wanted to see. Rooms were very clean and well attended to by hotel housekeeping staff. Terrific breakfasts served, no extra costs. All staff personnel, from front desk, garage facility, restaurant and concierge were attentative and gracious.

Great hotel with a warm and professional staff. The floors were quiet and the rooms were very clean. I was also pleasantly surprised by the gym facilities. The hotel is also very close to the convention center and the world famous Reading Terminal Market which has great local area fare.

Large conference hotel. Starbucks in the lobby. Walking distance to food, shopping and historical sites. Rooms, bathroom, closet are not spacious. No fridge or microwave. Bus service in front and train service across the street make connections easy.

The rooms have recently been renovated and are of good size but not always clean. I am a Platinum member with this chain and when ever I visit this hotel I NEVER get upgrades. For this reason I feel they do not treat guests the way they should. Food is average but is typical of a big chain hotel. The location cannot be faulted you are in the heart of everything that is Philadelphian.

Take the train from the airport ($8.00) to the 13th street station. Follow the signs and you are a 1/2 block from the hotel. Fantastic location. You can walk anywhere, Chinatown, Ben Franklin Parkway to visit the museums, Penn's Landing if you wish, Rittenhouse square for a bit of fun. Right across the street is Reading Market which is fabulous. City Hall is a couple of blocks away. The hotel itself is a typical convention hotel. Huge. 1400 rooms. We stayed on the 12th floor which is a quiet floor (I'm guessing no children) and loved it. Not much of a view but the room itself was great. Very good housekeeping service and the internet connection was OK. All the staff were fabulous. We did not eat in the restaurant but did visit the bar. Expensive. Lots of other options close by.

Very nice and great location. Reading terminal market is next door and it is central to everything else. Was here on a business trip and the conference rooms were great. Room was fantastic. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.
