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.

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!

perfect for downtown Philly

Great Hotel. I was upgraded to a suite which I appreciated. However the bed wasn't as comfortable. The gym was nice and did the job. Walking distance to many areas.

Cavernous Business Hotel

The hotel is perfectly adequate and provides all expected amenities but I did not love the neighborhood. Once all of the neighboring shops close the surrounding streets can get a little seedy. Otherwise, the hotel is centrally located and walking to most points of interests is quite easy.

Stores all around and right across the street is the Reading Terminal Market which is not to be missed.

We were delighted

The Philadelphia Marriott was a perfect hotel for our long weekend in Philly! We were able to walk to all our favorite venues and restaurants from the hotel: Philadelphia Orchestra at Kimmel Center; the Philadelphia & Rodin Museums; the South Street Festival; the Magic Gardens on South Street; Chris' Jazz Club on Sansom St.; Estia Restaurant on Locust; green Eggs on 13th St; Foods on a First on Arch St; Redding Market; St Peter and Paul Cathedral; plus many more. The room was very comfortable and had a great view of City Hall.
