Lover's getaway

It was a great getaway for me and my honey bunny. We stay frequently in Philadelphia and this is the first time we were able to book the Courtyard Marriott. Staff was friendly and the hotel definitely has old world charm. My boyfriend asked me if we could stay there again. I told him absolutely!

Great service @ luxurious hotel

I was there for only one night, but I was pleasantly surprised by the luxurious hotel. It was beautiful. The staff were cordial, from the valet to the cleaning ladies. I could hardly believe I got such a good hotel for what I paid. I paid the same rate for the Holiday-Inn Express in Philly, located just a few couples away from Courtyard @ Marriott, and there is no comparison. Marriott wins by far!

This place is great!!

Our trip to Philadelphia was strictly to see the city, and this place was perfect! We could walk to nearly everything we wanted to see and if we wanted transit, it was right outside the door. Location next to city hall meant we could see William Penn's statue right out our window! Make time for a stop at Reading Terminal for an Amish breakfast...Great! We would return here in a minute!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you would like to get in a bit of NY shopping it is a short walk and cheap treansportation available. There is a charter bus company on Filbert that will take you to NY for $20 round trip. Also, PHLASH is a bus (trolley) company that makes stops at numerous destinations (Penn's Landing, Zoo, Art Museum, etc.) for $5 a day (all day).

Collateral Damages

I was in town for 2 days to attend an event at Temple University. This hotel was in downtown so I thought it would be a great location. However what I did not know was that this hotel charged (hold your breath) $45 for vallet parking!!!! And if you need to park on your own, the nearest parking garage will cost you $33 for overnight. I was mad at the hotel [...]s for not sharing this critical information with me. Further what infuriated me was that the elevators had notices saying "Join us for breakfast buffet". Turned out they charged me $18 for buffet. The eggs were dry, the omellette line was too long and I ended up paying all that money just for Kelloggs cornflakes. I am mad as can be. Another problem was that the mattress was memory foam and that was not my type.

Everything Broken, stay at another Hotel

Everything seemed to be broken. The TV was constantly cutting in an out. Very few channels less than most hotels. Plus not a very good tv at that. While it does have an internet connection, it is very frustrating to connect to. Constantly have to go to Marriot.com to establish connection (which they don't tell you). Some of the doors were broken, and wouldn't unlock when the lights lit up correctly. Really over priced breakfast buffet.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Reading Terminal is incredibly awesome, and just a short walk away. However, there are three marriots next to each other...so you don't have to stay at this one in order to be close to the Reading Terminal. I'd recommend one of the other two. It has to be better than this place.

Great location

Perfect location for our trip - took the train a few stops to Citizens Bank Park and was short walk to Reading Market and the Historic District. Beds were very comfortable and the building itself was beautiful in its historic details. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
