I stayed here last month and I think it was undergoing renovation or they had some sort of undergoing conference. That being said I'm easy to please but one irritating issue was the bathroom. They are so outdated and looked like something you would experience in a run down hotel or even a hospital shower. I just wasn't a fan.... More

Stayed here 9/20/14-9/21/14 for Philadelphia Half-Marathon. Room was clean and adequate for three of us (husband, wife and daughter). Staff was accommodating. Really liked the location and proximity to stores, restaurants and other activities (e.g. Reading Terminal Market). Parked nearby (2 blocks away) at PPA AUTOPARK AT JEFFERSON (10th & Ludlow Streets) and paid only $20 for 24 hours. Carried... More

If you are a leisure traveler, I suggest avoiding this hotel, unless you thrive on irritability while on vacation.... If you are a conference attendee, pack extra patience. Our story - My husband attended a conference in the hotel and I participated in the Philly Half Marathon. Many of our fellow guests fell into the same categories. First and foremost,... More

Very large hotel next to the convention center. Good location, easy to get around town from here. Big hotel that caters to convention goers and wedding parties on weekends. Nothing special about the hotel, but also what you would expect from a Marriott. So, good value and no guesswork.

Stayed in this hotel on a Friday evening. Fast check-in with a pleasant staff. I valet parked the car and that was a bit $$ but that team was also efficient both in dropping off and picking the car up when I called for it. Room was clean and in very good shape.

The Philadelphia Marriott Downtown is everything you'd expect from a Marriott hotel. Nothing flashy, but clean and updated. The two-bed room that I had was on the smaller side, but the furnishings were updated and comfortable. My limited experience with the staff was positive. They were there when I needed something and they were friendly. The location of the hotel... More

Last year we had a very bad experience at this hotel and this year the service and room was absolutely terrific. We had a lovely corner room. It was very quite and the bed was confortable. Checking in was quick and housekeeping was pleasant. The only problem is the long wait for the elevator, but it was crowded.

I like Marriott and have stayed at many. This one is very well located and the staff are friendly but it could use some updating. I wish they would invest a bit more in toiletries and decent hair dryers. It's particularly frustrating as a female business traveler not to be able to rely on the hair dryer in your hotel... More

This is a great hotel located in the central part of town that makes it easy and convenient to many restuarants. The rooms are nice, clean, and well decorated. The bath rooms are large which makes the ladies happy with sufficient space to put all their stuff. The hotel is very secure and safe.
