Marriott's Courtyard Downtown Hotel Philadelphia prides itself on a fusion of historic elegance and modern comfort. Beautifully restored from the 1920s-era original building, guests experience soaring, arched lobby windows, gilded doorframes and a monochrome-tiled pool area. With the on-site gym, there's no need to break your exercise routine, but kicking back in the spa tub is a great way to ease overworked muscles. Classic US fare - in sizable portions - is served up in the eye-catching blue and orange interior of the Nineteen26 Restaurant. Check your emails over a takeout latte from the in-house Starbucks - high-speed Internet is accessible throughout the hotel (fees may apply).

Neighborhood
Just opposite Philly's City Hall and only a block from the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the Courtyard Downtown aims to please professionals and leisure-seekers alike. With an Amtrak station just around the corner, visitors never need to struggle through local traffic, and foodies will love the tastes available from the Pennsylvania Amish farms at Reading Terminal Market. A visit to the Museum of American Art is highly recommended for those anxious to check out an outstanding Impressionist painting collection, or unique artifacts from the far-off shores of Korea and Japan.
Hints and tips
For gorgeous panoramic views with the Masonic Temple and City Hall in the background, ask for an executive suite with a city view.
The space in front of the hotel is limited for car drop-offs, so call the valet service at least 30 minutes before you will need your vehicle.

One night stay

Great was to spend the night in Philly. The hotel was clean, the staff was responsive. The food was not very good at all. You are better off buying food outside the hotel. There is plenty to do around the hotel, restaurants, bars, sightseeing.

Nice Hotel

Stayed here for the night. It has a great location that is walking distance to many great spots. The hotel rooms were very clean and comfortable! And there's a Starbucks in the lobby. Would definitely stay here again!

Great night in Philly

The Courtyard by Marriot Philadelphia Downtown is in a very perfect location. The hotel is clean and the staff were lovely. I think if you only have a short visit this is the perfect place to stay for the location and hotel amenties

Great Location-Clean and Comfortable

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway. Great Location. Most things are within walking distance. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The shower also had great water pressure. The pool and free wi-fi was a plus. We had dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The food was great and the prices were reasonable. Now their breakfast buffet was very expensive.The Reading Terminal Market is a must. Went to a few museums and the Eastern State Penitentiary. This should be a must for any trip to Philly. The prison tour (self-guided) was our highlight. Would recommend this hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

We waited until the day we checked out to visit the Eastern State Penitentiary. Parking isn't cheap and once you leave parking garage, you will be charged all over again. Parking Very Pricey.

Weekend Getaway

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Downtown Courtyard Marriot. Being situatated next to Market St and the Broad St subway line was ideal. My only gripe would be with the perceived cleanliness of the room/batchroom. Generally speaking, the room was great and I don't consider myself a clean freak. However, upon closer inspection, It was evident that there were areas of the room that were not properly vacuumed as well as a bathroom floor that could have been cleaner.

Expensive, but nice.

Historic building on the national registry. Rooms are comfortable and have 10-ft ceilings. You don't see that often in a domestic hotel.

Great spot for historic Philly sites

Comfortable, clean, good rate - cool that it is an historic property as well. A little tricky to get to, and I wish the parking was included - other than that, great hotel!

Downtown convenience

Stayed a few nights (4 nights) at this hotel. The biggest draw is the location. You're right smack in the middle of downtown. Major tourist sites like Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are all within walking distance.
