Great location for the conference center

Direct access from the hotel to the conference center in Philly was very convenient. The hotel restaurant was excellent, the room was clean, the service was very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Shopping was close and a good choice of restaurants not far away.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Lots of good shopping on Chestnut and Walnut streets between 13th and 19th streets. Old town, south off Market a good area to visit during the day. Macy's only a block away.

Beautiful hotel, centrally located!

The hotel was beautiful and very clean. The beds were super comfortable! The hotel staff was very friendly and attentive. One of the hotel staff referred us to an Itallian restaurant which is locally known for the food and atmosphere, and it was terrific. The valet directed us right to Pat's and Gino's for cheesesteak standwiches without any problems. I highly recommend a stay at this hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Take the time to walk around to see Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross' house, etc. It is a lot of walking, but you will see and experience more than if you rode on a bus or in a buggy.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't pass up the Reading Terminal Market for lunch. It's a must; the variety of types of food and cultures is unsurpassed. For dinner you have to eat at Maggiano's. Everything on the menu was delicious.

Philadelphia Experience

Downtown Marriott is a great central location. Trains and subway within walking distance. Rooms were nice, our maid was excellent (kid friendly), staff was friendly, and 1st floor is beautiful. Their restaurant "13" is ok, their prices are better during sporting events. However, a little online research will show a lot of better priced restaurants within walking distance. Overall, our package deal made this great hotel affordable. Highly recommended.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Lots of neat restaurants and shops within walking distance. Do some online research and take a walk around the hotel. Also, the nearby mall and Macy's close earlier than I expected.

A-ok

This hotel is a -ok. Nothing extraordinary and nothing so bad it's worth complaining about online. The best part for me was the location. It's easy to find from the airport. Either pre-arrange for a hotel shuttle ditctly with the hotel before you arrive or take the train from the airport to downtown, then switch to the metro. The metro stop is literally outside of the front door, which makes for easy acres to test of the city. Additionally, the hotel is within walking distance to rittenhouse square, which has a number of different bars and restaurants. It's also relatively close to Chinatown, which warrants a couple of hours of exploring. Finally, it's connected by skybrodge to the convention center, so it would be an exclent choice if you're in town for an event held there. While there's a starbucks and a hotel bar/restaurant in the lobby, dishing up mediocre hotel-quality food, you must walk across the street to reading terminal! There are multiple food stands with an immense selection of foods. Try it for breakfast or lunch. It reminded me of the diverse marketplace in Barcelona, a Philly gem. Otherthan that, the hotel was acceptably neat, clean, and quiet. The also allowed meticulous check-in early (11am) after I called and requested it. Thanks!!

Great location, good price.

Went there for a seminar and got a better price than at the advised hotel close-by (by the seminar organizers) and in my opinion better accommodations. Spacious room too.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Tequila's restaurant @ 16th & Locust, if you enjoy mexican food, has been the best for the past 23 years that I've been a customer. Short walk from the hotel. Many other good restaurants very close by.
