The best!

Attended business meetings for the whole week, the hotel was very open, cooperative and willing to help with anything that popped up with our group. This was the best hotel I have stayed in.

Fabulous Stay and Loction

From the moment we check-in, we were impressed with the friendly staff and service. We spent 5 nights at this hotel. Our room was very comfortable and roomy. It was great to be able to walk to all the wonderful historical sites in Philadephia. There were ample places to eat during our stay that was just a short distance away from the hotel.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the Phlash bus service. It travels only to the historical/art stops and costs $2.00 for each hop on/hop off. Or $14.00 for a family pass. You can get on/off all day. Bus comes every 15 minutes - quick and convenient.

fantastic family getaway

we were in town for my sons graduation from the university of Pennsylvania and stayed for a couple days to enjoy Philadelphia. When we got home I had to call the Marriot about a missing set of keys and the man who tried to help me was very friendly.Even though we didn't find the keys,I appreciated all the help he did do.
