This is a very nice hotel. Perfect location and very clean. Our room had and nice sized sleeping and work area. It was actually too big and some of the space seemed wasted but I'd rather that than not enough space. It has a great Center City location, however, that comes with a trade off. The valet parking is a... More

Perfect center city location right next to City Hall. Easy access to the subway system both El and Broad Street lines. Very short walk to Reading Terminal Market that has good food with eclectic flavors and choices. Starbucks in the lobby makes early morning start easy and fast. If you prefer Dunkin Donuts there is one right next door. Fast... More

This newly renovated property in the beautiful old City Hall Annex is comfortable, clean, and convenient. Rooms are very modern and functional but still welcoming. Cleanliness was excellent and staff was on their game. Nice fitness room. Outstanding location, a short cab ride from 30th St Station and right in the middle of downtown, steps from the Reading market. Very... More

Not your standard Courtyard. Apparently, largest Courtyard in the marriott chain - restored historic city hall annex ( circa 1926). Comfortable, slightly nicer than most Courtyard properties (crown molding, tile shower). 4-star instead of 5 due to mediocre bedding. Would definitely return - killer location.

Spacious room with king size bed, fridge and free wifi. We got a cot for our toddler even though we didn't request it. Staff was nice and helpful. Our child loved the fact that there was a pool. Minus points for lack of duvet (blanket plus sheets that get tangled just don't do it for me).

This was a pretty nice hotel, worth the price, right in downtown Philly. The location is right across the street from City Hall so you're at the center of all the sites to see in Philly.
