A group of us stayed for one night in order to attend the opening of the Flower Show the next morning. We had reserved three rooms through the Marriott reservations website. We arrived about 5PM on a Saturday and although there were a lot of people arriving by car at the same time the process went fairly quickly. We had decided to have the vehicle valet parked ($35) and we were out and in the lobby within a few moments.
Check in was fast and easy. I am a Marriott Rewards member but that did not speed the check-in process which did not need speeding up!
Room was the usual Marriott sort and quite adequate. We were not in the so-called "Deluxe Tower."
What I personally did not like was the bedding. The king size bed mattress had some sort of overlay padded cover to make it softer. It did the job but I personally prefer a much firmer mattress. Other members of the group who were in the other two rooms felt their beds were fine.
Breakfast buffet was adequate; omelets and Belgian waffles made-to-order are available.
Staff were routinely helpful and friendly throughout every section of the hotel. The connecting walkway to the Convention Center next door was appreciated.
The hotel is convenient to local public transport and most areas of Center City.
