My first time in Philly was brilliant, the location of this hotel couldn't have been better with bars/restaurants/landmarks all walking distance. Staff were friendly and we were asked to provide a credit card at check in but we're not told of the amount ($150) which I think should have been made clear when we handed the card over. The gym...

Great downtown location for pleasure or business visits. The room was comfortable without being plush. Typical business hotel standard but served our purposes adequately. The public bar was a disappointment with a soulless atmosphere and non attentive bar staff but there are plenty of alternatives within easy walking distance.

I have stayed at several different Marriott properties in downtown Philly and this my favorite so far. The building is a historic landmark yet the rooms are very modern and reflect the recent room renovations most Marriotts are going through. I was also told at check in it's largest courtyard in the US with almost 500 rooms. Front desk was...

This is a Courtyard with character. Rooms are large and in very good condition. The restaurant and coffee lounge are nicer than the usual Courtyard. The hotel is across the street from City Hall, so in a very central location in the city. There is a train station a few blocks away, if you're coming from the airport. Reading Terminal...

The location of this hotel is AMAZING if you are looking to see the site of Philly. Nice historic building but the rooms are very modern (and clean!).

Found hotel on Priceline. Close to Reading Market and convention center and Chinatown. Small but grand lobby. Rooms comfortable. Has Starbucks and restaurant bar in hotel. Decor is retro chic? Security is good (need room key just to use elevator). Wifi is free. Tip: $15 for a glass of wine that costs $9 bottle is rediculous. Lots of bars within...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel in Philadelphia. Everything looks near to the hotel. I was surprised to see the marble stairs and the room was quit and clean. The neighborhood has a wide variaty of restaurants and bars. The staff was helpful and the breakfast (not included) was also good.
