We checked in the Residence Inn Philadelphia Center City on Saturday 4/14/2012. We were in town for a friends wedding so we were only staying over night and looking to spend less than the $200 at the wedding block hotel. We were 2 couples and chose the 2 bedroom suite at the Residence inn. Per couple the cost came to $135 with tax and city tax. We also used the AAA rate. We thought this price was great for what we received. The front desk was extremely helpful with everything we needed and answered all of our questions with a smile. Within 20 minutes of check in the front desk called to make sure we had everything we needed. The beds were soooo comfortable. We could have slept for days. The common area was nice with enough seating for all of us and a dining room table. The kitchen was perfect for what we needed it for and that was just the fridge and some ice for our drinks. The location was fantastic with the hotel being right in Penn Square. The wedding block hotel was just 1 block away at the Marriott. The breakfast was more fantastic than we thought it would be. Eggs, sausage, waffels, yogurts. You name it, and it was there. For a continental breakfast this was above my expectations. The only reason I did not give it one more dot was that the hotel rooms/bathrooms could have been updated just a bit. They were probably done within the last 10 - 15 years but need a little boost. That is all I would change.
Thank you Residence Inn you were great and would stay again!!!!

We go to philadelphia once or twice a year and have stayed at many hotels in the City Center area like Holiday Inn Express, Loew's, Holiday Inn Crown Plaza, etc. But for the past 7 years we've stayed at the Residence Inn. In the past couple of years they have redone the rooms, the beds are VERY comfortable, we love it when our room faces City Hall, a beautiful sight. The breakfast is outstanding, you get free wireless, and when we went in February they had redone the 2nd floor and now there is a beautiful lounge there. The lobby isn't much but who cares, we don't hang out in the lobby anyway. The staff is great and location outstanding.

Room Tip: love the ones that face city hall

I just got back from a night at the Residence Inn Phila. Center City. The location is great, within walking distance to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the National Constitution Center, The Gallery, The Reading Terminal Market, and lots more. The only parking is valet, and it's not cheap, but it was convenient and our car was delivered in a timely manner. The staff were all very friendly. The included full hot breakfast was lovely. There was anything you can imagine to eat. You can cook your own hot waffles, there were prepared breakfast sandwiches, prepared yogurt parfaits, plus eggs, sausage, hot and cold cereal, 3 different juices, coffee, tea, etc. I could go on and on - it was quite a nice breakfast in a beautiful room. They thought of everything - there was even whipped cream for the waffles. The room we had was a suite with a separate bedroom, living area, and fully equipped kitchen. The room seemed older and had old style tv's in both the bedroom and the living room. The bathroom was comfy and the bed was soft, with a couple different types of pillows. I can't stress how helpful and nice the staff was. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of City Hall which is right next door. We had a straight on view of the tower topped with the Wm. Penn statue. Beautiful day and night.

What more could you want!?
The Center city area of Philadelphia has 3 Marriott properties within 2 blocks of eachother, so prior to a recent business trip to the city, I was trying to figure out which one to book. Marriott's Residence Inn brand is definitely more functional rather than luxurious compared to the others, but it does the trick.
On arrival, I was greeted by the pleasant staff and informed that my Marriott rewards status made me eligible for a free upgrade (I was already staying on points). Minutes later I was relaxing in my 1 bedroom suite on the 21st floor overlooking city hall.
Little did I know that the best part was awaiting me the following morning with a quite impressive continental breakfast of waffles, eggs, sausage, melon, +++. Definitely more than I expected for a free hotel breakfast.
The hotel also has a very nice common area on the 2nd floor for those who want to get out of their room to do some work. Independence Hall is only a 10 minute walk away, while the Market line subway or Reading Terminal Market are both around the corner.
I'll definitely be staying here on future trips to Philadelphia.

Room Tip: Many of the higher floor rooms have great views of city hall

I spent the month of March at the Residence Inn. I was very pleased with everything. Although I was there on business, I thought it was the perfect spot for a family trip to Philadelphia. The two bedroom suites have small bedrooms but an adequate sized living room between with a kitchen. If you give the front desk your grocery list by 9:00, they go grocery shopping for you, at no added charge.
The one bedroom mini-suites are a great option for business travelers. It combines a small work area with a bedroom and kitchen.
The hot breakfast seven days a week was included and far superior to most chains offering this option. Scrambled eggs, waffles, a breakfast meat (usually turkey Canadian bacon) and potatoes were offered every day. Fruit was limited. Every weeknight, they offer a one entree dinner, hamburgers, pulled pork barbeque, etc. Both meals were good and an excellent bargain for families.
The front desk, facilities and housekeeping staff were all receptive, very courteous and eager to please.
The hotel is right across from City Hall in the middle of Philadelphia. There are lots of things within short walking distance.
Overall, my experience was outstanding. The other two Marriott properties have nicer amenities, but not nicer people and the Residence Inn has a better value for the price.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quieter, but only an issue during the day, if some type of event is taking place.
