For cross-country drivers on the turnpike, or for a business person visiting one of the many big office parks in this Philadelphia suburb, this Marriott offers high quality accommodations in a convenient location: right next to the turnpike on-ramp. With lots of free parking, only two floors, multiple entrances, this is really a fancy motel.
What sets it apart is a quiet interior courtyard (onto which half the rooms look) and a nice lobby design that features lounging space, a small bar, and a delightful bright breakfast area. The buffet breakfast itself is excellent value at $9. That price includes an order of eggs freshly cooked the way you want.
I was disappointed that the breakfast wasn't included in the room rate, which at $169 a night for a single, certainly justified some perks. Fortunately, everything about the place seemed professional and up to date -- from checkin to cleaning.
In spite of being so close to heavy traffic, my room was quiet. All furnishings were new, and the king bed comfortable. The bathroom was large but of an odd design that left much tiled space unused.
Nearby, there were a few services; several high-end eateries, a Starbucks, and gas stations. You might have to hunt farther afield for a shopping mall and personal services. This is a car-only suburb, after all. In fact, there are no sidewalks in the area at all.
Overall, good quality but you'll pay for it.
