My wife and I visited Philadelphia for the first time to attend a convention. We selected this hotel among the few on our convention list for its proximity to the convention center and reputation of Marriott. I have never been disappointed by any Marriott property, including this one! At check in, we discovered the convention clearing house group I was...

Convenient to all historical fun stuff including the Liberty Bell. The hotel was great, the staff was excellent! I will absolutely stay there again. Clean and nicely appointed rooms. Nice view from the 7th floor.

In January I stayed in the Marriott Residence Inn and the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown and did not have a very positive experience. This time I decided to mix it up and stay in the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown, and it is by far the best of the three hotels. The rooms were comparatively nicer, quieter, and overall more comfortable. The staff...

I stayed here for a work trip that required me to go to the convention center. The location is fantastic for walking to everything you need -- excellent restaurants, sight-seeing at City Hall, Reading Terminal Market, etc. The check-in experience was horrible! I stood in line for 30 minutes to get my room keys which, after getting up to the...

We have stayed here on multiple occasions. For our anniversary, they upgraded us from a regular room to a suite without us asking, which is a testament to their excellent customer service. The rooms are cozy, fairy spacious and offer great views of city hall and the city itself. I stayed here on my wedding night, and came back the...

Hotel has a great location, walking distance from major Philly attractions. We got our room upgraded and it was very spacious and nice. Perfect for a family. Services at the hotel (Parking, Food) are pricey, but there are good /cheaper options around. Overall a great stay!

Location cannot be beat. Check In was easy, fast and friendly. First room #738 had issues with TV so had to move to #908. Downgraded size but nonetheless solid room. The big issues here are the lack of Digital TV - the analog channels are covered in snow and make for a poor viewing experience and the horrifically soft beds....

This review is being written so I can thank Khalia at the Philadelphia Courtyard Downtown for making our March 9-12th stay at the hotel such a great experience.

I was very pleased with our hotel service, location and accommodations. The Courtyard is centrally located in the heart of Center City Philadelphia a short walk away from Starbucks, The Philadelphia Convention Center and the Reading Terminal. Our stay coincided with the Annual Flower Show (so there was a lot of activity everywhere). The check-in staff allowed us to check...
