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.

Mom's 70th bday

We thought the hotel staff was poor at best.They were not friendly nor helpful. After check in our room key didn't work and security had to let us in because the battery was dead for the lock. Our room was tiny and uncomfortable. We called to ask for an upgrade (that we gladly would pay for# the woman on the phone was rude and treated me like I was bothering her. Our room had no toilet paper #waited a half hour at 2am for it.) We will not return!

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

Not a Safe Hotel

Housekeeping took 1 of my daughters Ugg boots (value $150) from our room Hotel claims I have no proof. This gives Marriot staff the OK to enter your hotel room and intentionally/unintentionally take what they like and there will not be any consequences for them. I will never feel safe in a Marriot again.

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...)

Bed - ugh!!!

The bed had a very thick featherbed on top of the mattress. It had conformed to prior occupants so much so that it had a severe central depression. It gave the mattress the feel of sleeping on a bed which had contorted and conformed to an 800 pound person. In essence it was like sleeping on a swayback horse and was very uncomfortable. We removed it and the underlying mattress was better, but not great.

Not to bad....

When you walk into the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown it is so beautiful..until you get to the rooms and you don't have a microwave or a frig...that was very disappointing for the amount of money you pay. Other then that our stay in Philly was wonderful.

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!!!
