Great Location

A huge hotel right in the middle of center city Philly. Local transportation right outside the door and the awesome Reading Terminal Market just across the street. Convenient to historic Philly attractions. Nice gathering space in the lobby lounge.

BEDBUGS

Be aware of bedbugs at the hotel the coustermer service at the hotel dramatically changed after we informed the hotel of the bedbugs we found. They did not want to move our rooms and did not want to reinverse us for our nights stay the hotel staff seemed as they may have known about the bedbugs as it didn't seem to bother any of them at all. The lady at the claims department was very rude (Diane Bailey) Please do not stay at this hotel

Family memorial service for Wynn

The facilities were nice and colorful. We had to order more towels and washcloths the first day. I also bumped my eye and lip on the revolving door(Walnut Street) entrance. The staff was a little slow about responding. However, the paramedics and hotel security was called. I chose not to be treated in the emergency. The Marriott has followed up .
