Good Choice

The staff and location are great. Lots to do around the area. The free breakfast is much less than impressive.

Good place for short and long stay

Very nice place idealy located in front of the city hall and close to Market street. I've been able to check in early in the morning. The room was fully equipped kitchen,living/sitting area... Very clean and quiet place. Complementary breakfast and Wifi= ideal to make extra saving.

Center City Philadelphia

The Marriott Residence Inn is centrally located to experience what Philadelphia offers. For those who enjoy walking it is walkable to the historic district and to the art museum. I visited both. The Reading Terminal Market is a block away. The fact that breakfast was included was very convenient. Philadelphia makes for a great short visit. It is good restaurant town, has a great art museum, and U.S. history for the history buffs

Great Experience

I was very pleased with the location and the cleanliness of the hotel. I really enjoyed my first time experience in the northeast region due to all the hotel attributes. Excellent proximity to the subway rail. I had my first experience in a subway and on a train. Downside to the hotel is that Philly is an old city so you will see mildew or algae on the outside of most tall buildings, which includes the windows.
