My young son and I spent a night here in May. The room was clean and met our needs. My son really liked the shower. We were able to check in early which was great. The hotel is in a very convenient location. It was a short walk or cheap uber ride to everywhere we wanted to go. The proximity...

Helpful staff and reasonable, comfortable 'standard' rooms that will be familiar to those staying in Marriots. Good standards of cleanliness and a very short walk from the historic part of town, with the Liberty Bell a 15 minute walk away.

Good, solid hotel. Not luxury, but well appointed, modern, and clean. Rooms are quiet and we were there on a very busy weekend. Staff was polite and attentive. Excellent bed and linens. The rooms vary in size. We had a standard room, which was adequate in size and tastefully decorated. The corner rooms are upgrades and much larger, with a...

Stayed here on business for a conference in a nearby hotel. Comfortable, spacious room with free wifi. Easy access to center city attractions and restaurants, as well as other area hotels. Some of the furnishings in the restaurant/lobby were showing wear, but it is in an historic office building which gave it a bit of charm. It had the amenities...

Not your typical Courtyard -- this is the old City Hall Annex converted to a hotel. We were upgraded to a big corner room, but the others seemed large as well. Very friendly staff. Convenient location in "Center CIty" Philadelphia.

The Courtyard by Marriott is right across the street from City Hall.
