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.

This is not a comprehensive list of fees. Any amounts listed above may not include taxes and are subject to change.

Close to all the sights in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Trolley Works was stationed right on hotel site and this is a great way to get your bearings and see the city sights efficiently. Be sure to add the Philadelphia Pass to your trip package as this is a cheaper way to visit different houses, museums and rides. The concierge was most knowledgeable and very helpful in making plans on what to see first. We did have to keep asking for additional towels as there were 3 of us and they kept leaving enough for 2 people. The room looked over another roof top but we were there to see the sights in Philadelphia and this did not bother us. There were enough elevators to accommodate large crowds. The airline reservations worked perfectly with no delays! Great trip!!

Don't miss Ride the Ducks, the Eastern States Penitentiary, the Masonic Lodge and Old City Hall Tour to the top of Ben Franklin's 37 foot statue...this tour is only at 12:30 p.m. each day.

Cavernous Business Hotel

The hotel is perfectly adequate and provides all expected amenities but I did not love the neighborhood. Once all of the neighboring shops close the surrounding streets can get a little seedy. Otherwise, the hotel is centrally located and walking to most points of interests is quite easy.

Rooms and hallways need updating. The hallways look well worn and so do the room fixtures from the faucets to the old tube TV. Rooms were clean and the location is great.

I attended a professional meeting that was held at the hotel. Unfortunately it did not allow me time to explore the city. The hotel was clean, quiet, and convenient.

The hotel is literally 1/2 block from the second largest covered market in the country. You can find various kinds of food and other items in this market. In addition, there are many other restaurants located in the area.
