Philadelphia Marriott Downtown
Ranked #42 of 89 Hotels in Philadelphia
Reviewed 17 July 2014

The hotel is lovely and the staff friendly and accommodating. It was nearly impossible to get the a/c to a comfortable temperature, which had me getting up all night. The sheets were rough, and with only 2 real pillows on each bed (the other 2 were oversized for decoration), it was hard to find one that was comfortable. Probably the worst night sleep I have had in a long time at a hotel. The location is awesome, across the street from Reading Market Terminal and transit trains. Excellent selection of tv stations, but service went out during a storm. The citrus water we saw as we walked in to register was gone by the time we got our key :(. It should be made available all day. Wifi should be free. Asked for upgrade to concierge level and was turned down. Most hotels will even provide keyed access if they can't put you on that floor. Another reason I loved the Hilton family of hotels the best. Won this room on a Priceline bid so I can't really complain, but I do prefer the Doubletree down the street.

Great location in the heart of the city. The room was nice and clean. A lot within walking distance. Great location for traveling with family. Staff was great and helpful. Wonderful indoor pool. Overall, a nice hotel and I would recommend it.

My two night stay at the Downtown Marriott provided everything one could want in a hotel. To begin, the check in process was speedy and the staff friendly and helpful. Despite the presence of two large conferences, the manangement greeted arrivers personally and made sure everything was as you would like. The rooms were large, very clean, well-stocked and very comforable. The guest floors are only available to guests with keys for added security and quiet. The location is perfect. The hotel is directly across from the Reading Market Terminal and the historic area with the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, etc. was within walking distance as were some excellent small restaurants and shops. I did not use the hotel restaurant but found wonderful dining nearby. The staff of this hotel was quick to answer questions and assist in any way. A great place to stay in Philadelphia.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with views of the river.

This is everything you would want in a hotel in the downtown area of a city: it has a convenient location walkable to most attractions, or near the subway for others. It has large, clean, comfortable rooms with all the amenities. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. There is plenty of parking in the vicinty--which isn't cheap. But then again, you are downtown in the thick of the city. Great find.

Room Tip: The higher floors have good commanding views of the Philadelphia skyline.

I was at the hotel for a conference which was held in the hotel. The room was nice and clean. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The location next to the Reading Market Terminal is excellent. Everything was within walking distance of the hotel.

In the center of the city, easy access; amazingly quiet. Wonderful pool. Concierge lounge was only ok, always crowded, noisy, rushed food. Not pleasant for a quiet moment away from the day's activities. Staff very kind and helpful.

Typical Marriott hotel; nice rooms, nice service, clean etc.

A fabulous location for exploring Philadelphia on foot.

My one complaint - I am a Platinum Elite, and always reserve 2 rooms because we have another couple who always travels with us. Marriott ALWAYS sends the Platinum gift to the room occupied by the other couple; not the room occupied by me and my husband. How hard it is to get that right?!?

Helpful Hint: Try the restaurant Green Eggs, about a 5 min walk from the hotel - AMAZING breakfast options!!!
