As a titanium member that stays in roughly 80 Marriott’s a year, the Marriott Old City has to be one of my favorite hotels that I have stayed in. The rooms are brand new, the staff was brilliant, and the location is perfect if you are visiting penns landing/the old city buildings. The citibikes next to the hotel were a major plus as well.

I stayed at the Old City Marriott the weekend of August 7 as part of a wedding party booking. Great location, walkable to the highlights in Old City. Great lobby & bar area. Upon arriving in our room... no bar soap available in the bathroom at all (hand soap or bath soap) just shampoo, conditioner and body wash. I heard from others that they did not have bar soap either. How, in the middle of a pandemic, do you not have antibacterial soap available. Called to the desk and requested soap, as well as clean towels because there was a long dark hair very clearly sticking out of a folded white towel. Bathroom countertops still had residue on them, which I cleaned with my own Clorox Wipes. Then I noticed a stain on the decorative pillow, and when I touched it it was not dried on yet - it appeared to be make up/foundation. And the TV was not working. I went down to the desk, asked them to please clean the room while we were gone. They did offer to move us, but I didn't have time to gather my belongings, and frankly, I didn't want someone else to do so. I just wanted the room cleaned. Went to the rehearsal dinner, returned 2 hours later - the towel with the hair on it was still folded on the bathroom vanity, and there was what appeared to be pubic hair in the tub. I went back downstairs, spoke with the manager on site who comped our room for the night. Just the room - not the taxes and service fees for the night. That was the last I heard from her - she never checked back to see if the rest of our stay was satisfactory. The next morning, as I was getting in the shower, I noticed that in the corner by the shower and back of the toilet was a used contact lens and a disposable contact case. No one in my family wears contacts. Had we not been on our way to the wedding I would have packed our things and left. I was not about to contact the front desk again for what would have been the 5th time in less than 24 hours. I since reached out to Marriott via their website and was contacted via email by a customer service rep, saying they were sorry that was the experience and they would pass the feedback along to the hotel management team. When I pressed and asked if someone would be reaching out to me, he said no, but would deposit 10000 Marriott points into my account. While appreciated, that is disappointing as the 10K points would not even cover one night at this hotel or any other in a category 5 Marriott property. I get it - everyone is short staffed right now, but I am disappointed that a Marriott would not have greater interest in ensuring guest satisfaction when it comes to cleanliness. Next time we are in Philadelphia, we'll go back to the Sofitel.

Rooms are modern and bed is comfortable. Awfully ill-trained staff at reception that are really shame to Marriott name to be honest even if this property turned out to be franchise of Marriott (which I don't know really, but Marriott name shouldn't be allowed to be given with such service levels from staff). They are shame also to whoever does the recruitment and training, in my opinion such staff shouldn't be selected even at fast food chain, let alone Marriott or any 5 or 4 star hotel. Careless reception staff which give you the feel that you are barely a neighbor who asks for help or information not a guest at Marriott or any other respectable hotel brand for this matter. Deals with ignorance, no courtesy at all, no smile, no respect, carelessness, always hiding leaving the reception desk empty and you can see them at back office door playing with their devices, no minimum knowledge of other English accents (I don't come across such problem anywhere in the world let alone a Marriott hotel), careless to know basic information in their own hotel, even they don't know how much the daily breakfast may cost even as estimate I asked them by phone and in person but not a clue. Seem not to concentrate when talking with customer or low IQ not sure, I requested room away from atrium area at check in, staff started to allocate that, then I added "and higher floor please if possible", she ended up to change that far from atrium room into a room on atrium but the highest floor (room 4163) like if she cannot understand or correlate more than one request from customer in her mind (I came to know later most of the 4th floor rooms are empty and could have easily allocate room away from atrium). No basic primary school mathematics don't know anything about their own hotel billing nor how to calculate total of incidentals at check out despite they tried alot, then said ok you will know when you will get the surplus back !!!!! You end up just avoid dealing with them, so frustrating experience only because somebody decided he/she can recruit those staff for reception. Unfortunately I couldn't get their names from name tags but I dealt with probably all but one reception staff in my stay from 24 Aug to 27 Aug. Staff at breakfast are professional and do the job properly not more not less, no complaints there. Breakfast ingedients despite limited but of very good quality and delicious. Valet staff although I didn't use the service seemed friendly as well. Maintenace issues : AC not cooling from 1st day, called reception they sent technician, who opened and checked the back system of AC, he confirmed it is not cooling, I asked him what was the problem, he hesitated then said, it is just adjustment it should be ok now. The AC never improved for 3 days and the reception staff never checked back with me, I prefered to withstand least cool AC than again having to deal with such staff. That was the case to the extent that even when the Flush in WC stopped working from the 2nd day I avoided calling them and used the bucket in the bathroom to do manual flush.

This property appears to be recently renovated and is just lovely. The rooms are nicely appointed and I found the beds to be very comfortable. The lobby is expansive and very welcoming. There’s a beautiful TV/media room with a huge projector which would great if you’re staying on property during a big game or something of that nature. The location is a little off the beaten path and I liked that very much, but expect to do some serious walking if you’re intention is to do some sightseeing. I loved that there were many great restaurants that were very close to walk to and that in the evening we weren’t trudging through the midtown area where the streets are so congested. It is important to note that although the website said that microwaves were in the rooms, they are not. There is one for guests’ use in the lobby, but it was a bit of a hassle when trying to just heat up a quick meal. The front desk staff was very helpful whenever I needed any assistance, but the valet could use a little “Guest Interaction 101” as they weren’t always very welcoming. Other than that, it was an enjoyable stay and I would definitely return.

The location of the hotel is great. We walked everywhere with ease. Our room was clean and the staff were helpful. There is a coffee bar and bar downstairs. The hotel smells AMAZING. There are tons of skylights, so the natural light makes the atmosphere awesome. They have a small theater and the gym is great. Breakfast is extremely overpriced but there is a good selection of food. Valet is the only parking option on site and it is $50. Another rip off, but that seems common with Marriotts. The toiletries provided were great and smelled refreshing. I would recommend staying here if you are looking for a nice place in the area.
