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.
Location
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.
Highlights
  • 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)
Policies
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.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Use the valet parking and walk if you can. Also use the uber app for a safe and inexpensive cab ride in a black car or suv.

Overnight in Philly

The Marriott was centrally located and within walking distance to all of the attractions we wanted to see. The hotel had all of the amenities you would expect. Staff was friendly and courteous.

Very good location but....

The lobby is not very inviting to sit and relax in especially for a family with children. Concerning staff- -Except for the very personable doorman and hardworking room housekeeper, several of the front desk agents did not seem genuinely happy to be helpful (even somewhat condescending) when we inquired where there may be a more reasonably priced parking lot than the closest one which charges $50 per day, and where there may be a reasonably priced nice place to eat after the Terminal Reading Market has closed for the day. We also chose this hotel for the indoor pool that we knew our son would enjoy. But after arrival we were told that only lap swimming was allowed. My son used the pool anyway but did not, due the lap rule, enjoy himself as much as he normally does playing in a pool. We also did not like that the hotel charged $12 plus each day for any wifi / internet use. Isn't free wifi and internet these days considered a standard amenity? Concerning Location -- the hotel itself is conveniently located within walking, busing, or subway to many noteworthy places and best of all, right across the street from the wonderful terminal Reading Market where we are almost every meal. The location downside: The sad and disturbing downside: too many seemingly homeless people in the blocks surrounding the hotel, and the public areas need to be better cleaned and maintained.

Fantastic getaway

The location is perfect. It's near Chinatown and all places of interest and also is near from subway to go to the airport. I have fun and think it is convenient.
