Courtyard Philadelphia South at The Navy Yard
Ranked #14 of 88 Hotels in Philadelphia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 11, 2014

This is a pretty good Courtyard - clean, modern, staff was friendly and helpful. The location worked for me as I was in Philly to see a Phillies game and the hotel is within walking distance of all of Philadelphia's sports venues (more on that below). But if you wanted to be in the heart of Philly, near Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and restaurants and night life this hotel might not be the best choice as its in a corporate park near the stadiums and arenas but certainly is not in the "hub".
There is no free breakfast but they offer breakfast, I didn't care for the menu's selections or prices and went to a diner pretty close by - worked out well.
Now with regard to the walking to sports venues - its about a 20 minute walk and its an OK walk but at certain points there are no sidewalks and there are a lot of cars. If you're OK with walking and can maneuver less than pedestrian friendly terrain, then give it a go...if walking's not your strong suit.....take the car for a short drive.
Its a fine hotel, just make sure you're OK with the location. Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate the feedback. As far as walking to the stadium district, we recommend that cross over Broad Street while inside The Navy Yard, and walk along the North Bound Lanes. On this side of the street, you do not have the on and off ramp to 95, along with the 11th street connector to deal with. As you mention, it is very hectic on that side of the street. On the North Bound lines, there is a full sidewalk and no cross roads in this section. As you come out from the 95 overpass, there is a traffic light and cross walk intersections to get back to the stadium district. Thanks for pointing it out that this might need a little better clarification.

We stayed here while visiting for a concert at Citizen's Bank Park. Everything is nice and new, very clean and modern décor. Parking was a little scarce when we arrived back at the hotel after the concert, we literally took the last open spot in the lot. Staff were accommodating of a late check out, which is really nice. We wished we would have brought our better camera, the old Navy ships were in plain view and would have made for some really neat pictures. Just a few minutes from the sports complex and major interstates, we will definitely use this property again.

Thank you for the great comments. Are parking lot is a little small by design. We are a Green hotel and one way of being green is to reduce parking lot size. We do have plenty of on street parking around the hotel to make up the difference. We look forward to your return!

We stayed one night in Philadelphia, and managed to secure this property for $58 on Priceline... a real steal! Keep in mind there is no pool, and no complimentary breakfast. That said, we had a great stay here. It is a new property in the developing Navy Yard district, so everything has that "just built" feel. The room was tucked away on a side wing, and was clearly sound-proofed very well. All was immaculate and quiet with extremely comfortable beds - we slept like babies! We also appreciated the morning/late afternoon free shuttle between the hotel and the heart of downtown. And the subway station was only a 15-minute walk away, so really no car was necessary. In addition they offer FREE parking in their gigantic lot right outside, so we could just keep the car there while we explored Philly. If you are looking to save a little money on hotel costs but still have easy access into the city, stay at the Courtyard Navy Yard!

My husband and I stayed here while attending a Billy Joel concert at Citizens Bank Park. We felt completely safe walking from the hotel to the park and back again. The hotel itself is located inside the gates for the naval yard. This hotel is very new and extremely clean. We were able to eat dinner in the restaurant. The salad was excellent; the burger was so-so, but we were not in Philly to eat the food. Terrell was very friendly, offering soup samples and menu suggestions. We walked back to the hotel with other hotel guests, and everyone agreed that staying at this hotel made traveling to the concert incredibly easy. We booked this hotel as advance payment which gave us a great price. If you are attending any events in the Wells Fargo complex, make sure that you book the room early as the hotel was completely sold out for the night.

Stayed in a standard room of this new hotel. Bright, clean, very helpful staff. Walking distance to Wells Fargo center, and Citizen's Bank Park. Taxis are available to take you there also, about $8.00 to get to/from the stadiums within 5 minutes time. There is The Bistro for Breakfast lunch and dinner. Not overly priced, this is the only place to eat in the immediate area.

Thank you for reviewing us! We are just under a mile to Wells Fargo Center, and just over to Lincoln Financial Field and Citizen’s Bank Park. You can see all three venues from the hotel for some great photo ops.

Stayed here while in town for a concert at the Citizens Bank Park. Great staff, great location - convenient to everything, and immaculate facility.

I'd strongly recommend staying if going to any event at the sports complex. On a nice day you can walk.

It has been a great concert month at the Venues. So many fun things are happening all the time at all three large venues. XFinity Live is other great place to check out when you are over in the district.

Terrell, a server in the bistro was very welcoming, knowledgeable in their food prep, and gave great suggestions on what to try. All the food that we ordered was as fresh as promised.

He made dinner a fun and wonderful experience
