This hotel is located on Courthouse Square and is in a great location to walk everywhere, and taxis are available all the time. It is also right across the street from its larger sister the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown that's attached to the Convention Center. The Redding Market is a block away, and great for breakfast and lunch, with about a...

The Courtyard Marriott in Center City is located on one corner of City Hall. This is convenient for almost anything in Philadelphia due to the subway station at City Hall and regional rail lines that are accessed from there also. We ended up using the regional rail from the airport and then the subway to get to the 76ers games...

This is my favorite hotel in center city Philadelphia. The location is absolutely prime, the rooms are luxurious and comfortable, and the rate is reasonable for all the amenities. I cannot speak enough about how comfortable the beds are... I didn't want to get up! Check-in is at 4pm and check-out is at noon, which is late compared to some...

Pros of this hotel are very large comfortable rooms. Location is so so. Everything is at least a 10 to 30 minute walk. Parking garage is not part of the hotel. Gym is good but pool is terrible if you like to lap swim. The pool which is small and is no more than 3 feet deep! Service is average....

Once again, Marriott has delighted me with their vision! Years ago, they converted a City Annex building to a 500 room (!) hotel. This 1926 building in Penn Square, listed in the "National Registry of Historic Places" is (quoting the text with the framed photo outside the lobby) "... a fine example of classical Revival Civic architecture based loosely on...

This hotel is only a walk away from some of Philadelphia's best-known sights, including being only a block away from Reading Terminal Market and right opposite City Hall/Dilworth Park. You're surrounded by metro stations and shops and can immerse yourself in Philly culture. My room was spotless, more than comfortable, spacious and boasted a wonderfully powerful shower. I don't hesitate...

We've stayed here before. We like it. It suits our needs just fine. The facility is showing some signs of wear, and the gym, at 82 degrees this morning, was a tad bit uncomfortable, but the rooms are large, clean and comfortable. I sleep pretty well there. Handsome Companion sleeps very well there (as usual). The staff is very nice...

The location of this hotel can't be beat. So worth the money!
