I stayed at the Residence Inn the weekend before the DNC hit Philly. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly, and location couldn't be beat. It is in walking distance to almost anything - many bars, restaurants, and attractions are either a few blocks away or a very short ride. If you want to explore the city this is an... More

We had a blast at this hotel! The room (two queen beds) was such a great size and comfortably fit the 4 of us. The staff was so incredibly pleasant. The hotel is in a great area ... many attractions in walking distance (landmarks, restaurants, bars, shopping). Thank you for a great stay and a great price!!

The location is perfect especially for families lots to do in walking distance. (Splash park) The free breakfast was really good and the serving staff were very nice. Great snack hour at 6 pm they served burgers and salad one night. Saved money by eating several meals at the hotel.

The Residence Inn Philadelphia Center City is located in the heart of Center City (literally, my room looked out to City Hall!) and convenient to other parts of the city via public transportation. The rooms are very spacious-- ideal for families on vacation or someone staying in town for business. Housekeeping always did a nice job making sure the room... More

The hotel was clean and centrally located. Front desk check in & help was fast and efficient. We arrived late and everything was still staffed adequately. The included breakfast was very good. Rooms were big and clean. I would stay here again.

While we've stayed at other Residence Inns in several countries and states. This one was our worst experience ever with this hotel chain. This hotel is NOT handicapped friendly. This was evident with the initial contact. Parking is valet only, which is not surprising given its central city location. However, as cars are 'double parked' awaiting the valet to take... More

Dear Paul A, Thank you for taking the time and providing us valuable feedback on your stay. I apologize that your stay was not up to the usual Marriott standard. I will be discussing everything with the other departments to better our service. Unfortunately your stay coincided with a huge convention and even though we had full staff working it... More

The studio was quite small. I was hoping for an upgrade as a platinum on Marriott but as usual there wasn't anything available. The location is excellent. The Marriott around the corner has a nice bar as there is nothing in the RI lobby. The breakfast was excellent. The food was quite good, plentiful with enough seating. I would stay... More

The Residence Inn Philadelphia Center City is in an amazing location within walking distance of some nice restaurants and most of Philadelphia's historical sites. The hotel itself is a little dated, faded and worn, and while I would have initially said it was very clean, there was what appeared to be dog/pet hair next to the bed on the window... More
