This hotel is located in what feels like the heart of downtown Philadelphia. It is connected to the convention center, which is convenient, across the street from the Reading Terminal Market, which is a marketplace of booths for food, drink and other items. It was an enjoyable visit, allowing me to "graze" my way through and have a small taste of Philly.
Hotel Positives - Check in was quick and efficient, Room, decent size, quiet with the usual Marriott amenities. Elevators, fairly quick, needed your room key in order to use them.
Hotel Other... Valet parking and Hotel Wireless are both very expensive. Although I needed a car, I took the train from the airport to the Reading Market Stop ($7.00) and walked across the street to the hotel. The next morning, I picked up my car at 30th street station (rental was much cheaper than picking up at airport as well) went to my meetings, returned the car and took the train back to the airport. It was very easy and much cheaper. Wireless internet, I was able to use my i-pad and phone with out needing to pay, however for my lap top, I went to the hotel lobby Starbucks where they offer the standard free WIFI that you receive at any Starbucks.
