Rooms are average. No hot water on the 2nd night of our stay. Front desk would not do anything to compensate and told us we would just have to wait. Missed our dinner reservations due to not showering

I travel to Philly a lot for business and have stayed in many properties in the city. This hotel is very average and a bit below par for the Marriott chain. There are positives: the location is great, right in the middle of downtown, some of the amenities are nice such as the gym, shops and a Starbucks in the... More

The people were so nice to us and they were so very helpful. They gave us a very quiet room that made our stay very worthwhile. The hotel is connected to the convention center, so you need not go outside. I love that it is the old Reading Railroad station (like in the Monopoly game!)! There are so many restaurants... More

We booked an hotel room for the 5 of us looking for a two double bed rooms. I called the hotel ahead of time and someone told me it should be fine. At time of check-in I was told that such room were already sold out for quite some time. No real solution was provided to me and we had... More

PRO's: Check-in very quick and pleasant; front desk staff and concierge were most kind and helpful when I had questions about directions. Room was clean and comfortable and had great view of City Hall. Lounge was better than most Marriotts. CON: Doors are thin; even though hallway sign said "quiet zone", I heard every conversation in the hallway from my... More

PROS: very comfortable clean rooms. Location is convenient. Great for touristy stuff: Reading Terminal Market (3-minute walk), Liberty Bell Center (11-minute walk), Independence Hall (11-minute walk) and more. There is also a swimming pool and fitness center, which are good. CONS: the parking was insane. No place to park so you have to pay the hotel $50, OR you can... More

I stayed here one night for business. The hotel is very centrally located with access to all kinds of public transportation. The staff could not have been nicer. The room was updated and extremely clean. I did not order food from the hotel but it looked like it had a lot of options available for guests. The concierge was very... More

The Marriott Downtown is centrally located and very convenient from the Convention Center. The hotel is enormous and also hosts conferences itself, which can make your stay quite crazy if your visit falls on convention/ conference week. The rooms however are very nice and I certainly enjoyed my stay (which was associated with a conference, hence was even more convenient).... More

None of the food was restocked during breakfast. The staff was fighting with each other. It was brought to the attention of the staff in the morning and then brought up again. Nothing was done to correct this. I included photos to show.

The workout room is large enough for its many guests and there is also a 24 x 7 (minus holidays) FedEx Office store located off the lobby as well as... More
