We stayed hear to meet my parents in July 2005. The place looks great on the outside but the interior is another story. The lobby is full of cigarette smoke and seems to never be cleaned out. Stere clear of all the restaurants within the hotel, the food is very expensive and you do not get what you pay for. My breakfast buffet was $11.95, did not even include a drink, and our server forgot about us. You could probably find better food accross the street at the seven eleven.
The pool and fitness center were just inexcusable. The sides of the pool had slime, yes SLIME, on them. It was a very erie feeling just to have your feet touch it. There were these green things floating on top of the foam in the hottub.
If I were you, I would stere clear of the Marriott Downtown Philadelphia. In addition to all these problems. The airconditioner in my room broke during my stay, but at least the repair woman was nice to talk to.
