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.

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.

Great location and service

I just had 2 days to see Philly so I chose a hotel in the vecinity of the places I wanted to visit. This hotel is perfectly located, the rooms are extremely comfortable, large and clean. The bed was great. There is a restaurant/bar/starbucks on the lobby floor which is very convenient. Service was great and food was good. I would stay there again!!

Unexpected Value on New Years Eve

Hotel was very clean. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Four of us stayed here for new years eve 2012 and had a great experience. Everywhere we went was in walking distance....the bars, the restaurants and the shopping. We also had a great view of the mummers parade on new years day, a tradition in Philly. Highly recommend this hotel!

Excellent Hotel

Arrived a bit late and still had a very easy check in process. Got to the room and it was very spotless and felt pretty up to date. Best part of the room was the beds they were absolutely comfortable for a long nights rest!

Great Weekend

I wanted a safe and clean hotel in downtown Philadelphia. The Courtyard by Marriott was much more than I had expected. The staff was very available and extremely helpful. I attended the West Oak Lane Jazz Festival. Commuting to the festival was easy. All I had to do was cross the street from the Courtyard and take the train; then connect to a bus which was also conveniently located. I was able to get shopping done on Market Street. The thing that impressed me most was how clean Philadelphia is. I loved the architecture, the downtown buildings around Market Street are awesome. I also liked the wide sidewalks; no congestion. It was the best three-day vacation in a city that I've had in a long time. Everyone needs to stay at the Courtyard and visit Philadelphia at least once a year.

Planning Adventure

I took a group of Girl Scout to the Courtyard Marriott to "practice" for our upcoming trip to Europe and to do some planning. The hotel staff was super friendly and helpful right from the start. The front desk person found us 3 rooms together, offered suggestions on dining options, and even gave the girls some ideas about what we could do on Thursday morning and offered a map with directions for locating them. The rooms were spacious enough for all 12 of us to meet in one room for planning. And I know some of the girls really enjoyed the pool.
