Experience the famous birthplace of freedom, without wasting time in traffic, at the centrally located Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. With its skybridge to the Pennsylvania Convention Center, 72 meeting rooms, and impressive Grand Ballroom for events, business travelers have access to anything they could possibly want. The on-site Starbucks certainly doesn't hurt in the mornings, either. Guests staying for pleasure will find plenty in the classy environment of the Circ restaurant, comfy alfresco snacking on the 13 Terrace, or the taste of signature Chesapeake striped bass in 13 Restaurant. It doesn't have to be all about lazy days, however; the rowing machines at the Fitness Center and all-weather pool will make sure that visitors break a healthy sweat.
Key facts
  • 1,408 guestrooms
  • Fitness center
  • Indoor pool
  • Valet parking
  • Business Center
  • 8,547-square-feet of meeting space
  • 2 restaurants: 13 and Circ, with open-air terrace
  • On-site Starbucks cafe
  • High-speed Internet (fees may apply)
Neighborhood
Conveniently located in downtown Philly, with the Pennsylvania Convention Center just around the corner and the Liberty Bell only eight blocks away, the Marriott Downtown Hotel Philadelphia is ideally located in every way. SEPTA subway 13th street station is right across the street, as is the Reading Terminal Market, for the oldest consecutive running farmer's market in the nation (and where the Amish community comes to sell their produce). At night the city is all abuzz, with spectacular shows at the Forrest Theatre and plenty of excellent Center City restaurants in the hotel's direct vicinity.
Hints and tips
Valet parking can be fairly expensive and the valet bay is usually quite busy, so if you need directions, get them before you slide behind the wheel, because staff will try to get you going as soon as possible to clear the lane.

Dinner-wise, walk two blocks from the hotel and you'll be in the city's Chinatown district - an essential stop for authentic dim sum and other Asian fare.

really nice hotel

I would definitely stay here again. This is an urban downtown hotel. There were some shady characters (1 homeless guy actually seeking cash) in the extremely large lobby. I wasn't sure everyone in the hotel elevator was really staying in the hotel. But maybe this is just my paranoia. IE Just because a young person has a hoodie on doesn't make them a thief. With all that said this is really a nice hotel. The room was really nice. The staff was very helpful. The hotel is centrally located and in a perfect location.

Fantastic place

Hi, I came to Philadelphia to visit two universities in University City. I didn't expect for the Marriot to be closely connected to everything that I needed during my stay. For example, a bank was right across the street, a grocery store was a block way and the subway is about two minutes from the hotel. For what I needed it for it was well worth it!

Mostly OK

The best thing about this hotel is the location, right next to the Reading Terminal Market. We ate there often. Such a fun place! The location is also convenient to trains and buses and attractions. The room was fine, beds comfy, staff friendly and helpful, etc. The in-room safe was a useful addition. Another chair and maybe a small table would have been useful, but there wasn't enough space for that. Downsides: The biggest downer was not having free wifi in the room. The daily cost to add it was nearly 10% of the room rate. So we tried using the free lobby wifi, as did quite a few other guests, but it was slow and unreliable. Also, the lobby was very, very noisy with after-work party-ers. For this rate, we would have expected a complimentary breakfast. In this case, though, we didn't miss it, and really enjoyed the food at the Market (which was much better than hotel breakfasts tend to be).

Good game experience

Flew in for Philadelphia Eagles opening day. Couldn't have had a better experience. Everything I needed was in close proximity to the hotel. So I didn't have to venture far. I will definitely b back!!!!

Overall I was very pleased with my stay . The staff was great and was very hospitable. They were also very understanding and I liked how they gave all guests late check out . I would definitely recommend it, it was a very convenient location. Stayed on the 23 floor, had a great view !
