CHECK YOUR BED....Pulled back the covers and found several bugs, dirt, hair (skull & pubic) in the bed. Immediately called and demanded I be moved to another room. The rooms have not been remodeled, this place is old and sits in the middle of a swamp. While the desk clerk was accommodating, the compensation offered was a free meal at the hotel restraunt....EAT HERE, NEVER.

AVOID THIS LOCATION AT ALL COSTS. Marriott should spend less money on hate campaigns and more money on their hotels. Disgusting and shameful property; I would have preferred to sleep in my rental car.

The decor is old, rickety and badly worn. On a scale of 1-10 this place gets a -5.

Room Tip: Choose another property, even for free your health is worth more than a free room.

Old 80's property. Mid $200's price- no value there for what you get and they made me pre pay on the net to get that rate- thus eliminating your ability to cancel. Probably because everyone cancels once they get there and see what a rip off it is. Horrible food- burnt toast on a club sandwich. How do you mess up a club sandwich? Only consider if your are trapped at Philly airport and can't get in the Marriott- which is no gem either. No staff recognition for Plat status- not a big deal but they need to treat their elites better.

We stayed for an overnight for a sporting event. The staff was very kind and friendly. The room was average in regards to appearance and cleanliness. It's a drive to any sporting event. However, it is a great place to stay if flying out of the airport!!!!

Spent one night here on the way back home from NY/NJ. Considerably high rate for what you get and the area you're in. Room was decent - perhaps remodeled. However, no fan in the bathroom and unless they put us in a ADA compliant room, the bathroom counter was extremely low. Not good for taller folks.
Despite the room rate, there was no WiFi and no mini fridge in the room we had, but we were not willing to pay more for one night or for breakfast which was also extra.
Still seemed cleaner than other options within a few miles, but you may want to consider driving a bit further to find accommodations if those are important to you.

When booked into this hotel my initial thought why near the airport when my business was down town.I realised later that not many hotels in the city centre had space for a group of 10 for 5days due to some major conferences in the city.However we were all very pleased with the efficent service very comfortable accommodation and great breakfasts.The bar staff were exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to serve us items not on the menu.Reception were caring and exceptionally helpful as were all the front of house personnell.I recommend this hotel without hesitation........

Just checked in last night. Looks like a bit of remodeling going on. We stopped in to eat right when we got here. I was disappointed. I'm gluten free and really had nothing I could eat. The waitress was so awesome. Loved her. She tried everything. She was outstanding, but I did not order. My son loved his Philly sub. The room was nice the hotel looks good but need a few updates. The people make the place. I say give it a try

The picture is of a sparkling new tower but this place is threadbare and worn out. From the funky loose toilet seat and lousy bathroom exhaust fan to the front desk that just doesn't answer the phone half the time it was 50 percent overpriced. And when I called the day after checking out to see if I'd left my power cord in the room, they said they'd look and call me back but never did.
