Convenient for UPenn visiting

Nice hotel. Located right beside City Hall. About 2.5 miles to UPenn. Valet parking $45 per night. $36 per night if you choose the nearest parking lot (50 ft away, in the back of Courtyard). In general things match the price, except the bathroom has no/weak ventilation system. Service personel has very good attitude. Hotel resturant is good. The Philly CheeseSteak costs $10. Gym & pool are small, but enough for 5~10 people using them together.

This is the first visit of UPenn with my kid. All three closest hotels are full. Randomly pick this one. Compared to SF, it's about 30% lower in price.

great location

Awesome location and convenient to most of the attractions we wanted to see. Only complaint was the pillows being too stiff. The beds were comfy and the view of the city was to die for.

Good Hotel

Great Hotel, in great location in Philadelphia. I would rather stay here than the Philadelphia Marriott or the Loews. The hotel is clean with great customer service. I went here with my wife and we were both satisfied. The valet parking is expensive. You're better off going across the street and to park the car yourself in the garage above Chili's restaurant. I left my car there the entire trip. Everything is a short walk away from this hotel.

Great stay for a romantic getaway!

Stayed here for a little romantic weekend getaway with my gal and it was amazing! The hotel is in a great location in the heart of Philadelphia a stone throw away from City Hall. The staff is top notch and the room was comfortable, clean , with a great view of the city. I recommend the Courtyard to anyone looking for an affordable and enjoyable stay in Philly.
