I stayed at the Phila Marriott Downtown for one night before running the Marathon. Hotels sell out quickly, so book early. I booked through the race website and got a decent price; overall, I was just happy to get a room in center city near race start.
The location is great for anyone running the race. The hotel is connected to the Convention Center, where packet pickup / expo is held. Great pre-race meal choices abound. The race start is an easy, direct mile walk away.
I was able to check in around 11am. The room was clean and comfortable, with a good selection of TV stations. On the day of my race, I was able to get a late checkout with no hassle. I was very pleased with my short stay, and would stay here again.
