Overnight in Philly

The Marriott was centrally located and within walking distance to all of the attractions we wanted to see. The hotel had all of the amenities you would expect. Staff was friendly and courteous.

Comfortable stay

The Philadelphia Marriott Downtown is a great location for those attending an event at the Philadelphia Convention Center, which is attached to the hotel. It's also across the street from Reading Terminal Market, which offers a great variety of food options for those staying at the hotel (morning, lunch, and early evening). The hotel room itself was fine-- clean, roomy, and relatively new.

Reasonable Expectations
Marriott Downtown Philadelphia
Mar 11, 2014

Very good location but....

The lobby is not very inviting to sit and relax in especially for a family with children. Concerning staff- -Except for the very personable doorman and hardworking room housekeeper, several of the front desk agents did not seem genuinely happy to be helpful (even somewhat condescending) when we inquired where there may be a more reasonably priced parking lot than the closest one which charges $50 per day, and where there may be a reasonably priced nice place to eat after the Terminal Reading Market has closed for the day. We also chose this hotel for the indoor pool that we knew our son would enjoy. But after arrival we were told that only lap swimming was allowed. My son used the pool anyway but did not, due the lap rule, enjoy himself as much as he normally does playing in a pool. We also did not like that the hotel charged $12 plus each day for any wifi / internet use. Isn't free wifi and internet these days considered a standard amenity? Concerning Location -- the hotel itself is conveniently located within walking, busing, or subway to many noteworthy places and best of all, right across the street from the wonderful terminal Reading Market where we are almost every meal. The location downside: The sad and disturbing downside: too many seemingly homeless people in the blocks surrounding the hotel, and the public areas need to be better cleaned and maintained.
