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.

Comfort and great location

The Marriott is centrally located, convenient to many downtown attractions. It is a large hotel, near fine restaurants and the Reading Market. For this reason, the restaurant in the hotel is of modest size, but offers good fare at a reasonable price.

Downtown Philadelphia Marriott

The hotel was nice and in a perfect location for vistors looking to do all the tourist acitivities. It is mainly a business hotel though which didn't effect my wife and I either way but I thought I should throw that out there. The staff could have been a bit more friendly but they weren't horriable. Nice hotel in a accessiable area. We liked it!

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.

Excellent Location and Service

Attended a conference and the Convention Center. You can't beat being connected by a walking bridge. Independece Hall is within walking distance. For business, City Hall and Comcast Building are within walking distance.

Philly New Years & Mummer parade

Hotel was huge & well appointed. Beds were extremely comfortable & room was spacious & very clean. We were on 19th floor & fire alarm went off in the wee hours of the morning but mgmt was able to determine it was false alarm & announce over speakers before we started down the 19 flights of stairs. Would not have hesitated to evacuate but was grateful we didn't have to since it was in the temp was single digits. Reading Terminal Market across street & lots of regional dining. Maggiano's is on the corner & has excellent Italian dishes & great service. We enjoyed the Mummers parade & competition @ PCC.

Tip: ask if convention center event will have access through hotel walkway. We chose hotel because it had a walkway to convention center. Unfortunately the event was not accessible thru this walkway & we had to return to rooms for coats to go out on street & stand in line.

Walking the Revolution

The reason for our trip was to learn about American history. Although the walk to the Independence Hall Visitor's Center was about seven blocks, we walked it each day. From there, we went to the Constitution Center, the President's House, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Carpenter's Hall, the First and Second Banks in the U.S., Washington Square, Franklin Court and the Betsy Ross House. We ate at City Tavern. In each of these places, we touched the same had railing and ate at the same tables as Washington and Franklin. The best part about the hotel was that the beautiful 1860's City Hall was right outside our window.

No City Hall tours on weekends of holidays. Penn Square was closed at 4 p.m. on Sunday before Labor Day for a private party. Most of the Revolutionary War sites in Germantown were closed on Labor Day, but Cliveden was open. Our tour book suggested we begin that walk closer to town, but I suggest beginning at Cliveden and walk toward downtown, then ride the bus when you feel the surroundings getting dangerous. Some historical sites are in a questionable neighborhood. The city bus came right to the front of the hotel.
