An absolutely superb experience. Stayed for 2 weeks. Staff was/is exceptional. A shining example of quality service in the hospitality field. Alex and Dave @ the front door represent themselves and the org. very well. Lenora in HK was exceptionally polite and helpful. Front desk staff can remember your name, and pronounce it correctly! Breakfasts are fantastic, was never a... More

First the good: The location was great. We walked around Philadelphia all weekend. Now the rest: The rooms are small. It was a shade bigger than an average double room, only instead of two doubles, the room had a king and a pullout bed. The elevators were iffy. In the morning they were packed and slow. Once my card didn't... More

Thank you for taking the time to give a review from your stay. The hotel did have a very busy Memorial Day Weekend and the valet company that majority of the hotels use was extremely busy that day with checkouts all occuring around the same time frame. I do apologize for the wait that you had to endure when you're... More

beds were comfortable, as always. great location across from city hall/macys. "quiet" room since the a/c hums without ever kicking off. so as white noise, you dont hear other noises outside or elsewhere. breakfast just like most res inns.

This hotel is ideally located in the center of Philadelphia. You will like their social evening with nice food, their generous breakfast and the cosy rooms. Though the hotel seems a bit old, it is perfectly maintained, up to date and clean. Special thanks to the friendly front desk personel, they walk the extra mile to make your stay comfortable...

Residence Inn Center City may have a fine central location (for Philly's east side), but in exchange for location, guests must be prepared for awkward parking on arrival, cramped noisy rooms and slow elevators. If you are used to more suburban Residence Inns, then you are in for a surprise. Located on the drive around square surrounding City Hall, the... More

Thank you for your response to your recent stay with us. The hotel is located in the heart of Philadelphia with alot of activity in regards to traffic driving by during the day time hours. That particular week was extremely busy and with 280 suites it could take some time for elevators during certain times of the day. I'm sorry... More

We were able to get into our room early, which we appreciated very much. The beds were clean and comfortable. I liked having a little refrigerator in our room. Next time I'll take along coffee as there is also a coffee pot. In fact I noticed a dishwasher, two burner stove and plates, pots too. It would be great to... More

Stayed at this hotel with my teenage daughter in April. She is on a travel team that takes us to various cities and we stay in many hotel/motels throughout the season. Although this hotel has extremely pleasant employees and excellent location, I hope that in the future our team chooses another hotel. The valet service is extremely slow, although pleasant... More

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our hotel. I am certainly disappointed that your stay was not all that it could have been. Just to clarify the valet parking company handles all three of the Marriott hotels in the city of Philadelphia. Unfortunately that weekend alot of the guests left after a large... More

Stayed here for business back in April 2013. The valet parking was slow. The check-in took a few minutes as there were only 2 behind the desk. The room was nice. It was clean and featured a kitchenette. The HVAC kept the room comfortable and the room was well kept and clean. This hotel features a morning breakfast buffet which... More
