1 night stay

From the staff to the nicely appointed guest rooms, the Marriott Market St. was the right choice. I was impressed that there was adequate staff in all areas, reducing the wait time for check-in and concierge services. All encounters with staff exceeded my expectations. The bed was very comfy, with high quality pillows and sheets. I'd definitely stay here again.

Jims on 4th for Cheese steak subs. Also, Tony Lukes. Go before you're starving because the lines are down the block, even late at night.

Noisy cooling/heating in room

At all costs avoid staying in the adjoining building (Headhouse Tower). The cooling/heating system in the room is very noisy (about 55-60 decibels) and makes sleeping at night very difficult. My recommendation: call ahead and make sure they put you in the main building. No fridge in the room (at least in our room). Other than that, hotel is clean and nice (but we shouldn't have to pay for sleepless nights...)

Excellent location!

Very poor customer service, staff not friendly nor accomodating. Had to wait for almost 1 hour to switch room key and for extra towel to be brought to the room. Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, last day of stay room was not clean. Hotel does not have a shuttle. Parking very expensive $45.00/day. Hotel lobby furnitures/rug dirty. Hotel manager on duty not impressionable. I stayed in many Marriott Hotel before but never experience quite like this. Very disappointed!!!

Good central location for visiting

The friendly and helpful staff had no problem going above and beyond. If it's your first visit the Marriot is connected to the SEPTA so no problem finding the hotel!

Great Location

The hotel is at the center of everything. Reading Terminal Market is not even a block away, museums and dining were also in walking distance ( <25min). The hotel staff was very helpful when needed. The room were clean and comfortable. Overall it is a great value for a great location.
