A little disappointed with the fact that there is no accommodation for free handicap parking at this location and there is a charge for valet overnight parking.

Very nice room. Kitchenette is a big plus. Nice that they had real cups and silverware in the room. Room coffee was very good.

Our room was tastefully remodeled with lovely modern finishes, it even smelled new in there. Everything was accommodating and comfortable from the moment we arrived. We were greeted warmly and taken care of by Tammie at check-in, and she made sure a pack and play made it up to our room before we even made it off the elevator. There was a tasty breakfast buffet for us in the morning, and we were able to hold our luggage there with the staff after checkout while we spent the day sightseeing in the city. I would recommend this place to any friends and family taking a trip to Philadelphia.

Great downtown hotel

Pros: Service rendered by the staff was very good and attentive. Great location.
Cons: All is well
Location: This hotel is conveniently located in the downtown area with hotels, restaurants and transportation close by. Close by landmark, historic buildings,
My first time in Philadelphia, and was pleasantly surprised, because I did not expect this much (American) history in this location

Great Location, Multiple Visits, Multiple Failures

This hotel could be awesome, but it isn't even close.  Mediocre at best.  I stay in Philly regularly and enjoy staying downtown near old town.  I've tried all the Marriott brand options in the area and this one is by far my least favorite.  Three visits in a row I've experienced extremely slow Valet parking service.  The first visits they refunded my valet fees because they were so slow I was late to my meetings for the day.  Their policy is 30 min minimum to retrieve a car, which I find unacceptable because I've called down with 30 min advance and the car still wasn't ready!  Hire another Valet person!   The physical hotel is getting run down. I had serious noise and water issues this trip.  Water pipes made pounding noises if any nearby rooms were using water.  Of course when engineering came up there was no noise.  However the noise happened every day.  And my shower would STOP RUNNING,  make pounding noises, then slowly restart.  I told them about it and the staff acts like this never has happened before they it has happened on two of my three stays.  I think they have serious problems and are just covering them up. There are at least three other Marriott band hotels within a block of this one.  I'll not come back to this one and use the others.

Loved the view of City Hall

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
The room had random patched kitchen counters. I really appreciated the front desk staff's helpfulness, particularly the evening staff. Great views too!

Excellent Location, Very Comfortable Room

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, location, transportation
I stayed here during a weekend trip to Philadelphia and was very happy with my decision for this hotel. The rooms are clean and very large, with a comfortable king size bed, large bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, and large living area. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is free wireless internet in the rooms, as well as a business center on the lower level. The fitness room looked great, but unfortunately I did not have time to use it myself. Another plus is the free breakfast buffet, although I would recommend getting there early on the weekends as the line gets very long. The location of the hotel is excellent, right next to City Hall, and in walking distance to the historical sites and many other attractions. I always felt safe in the area around the hotel. A subway stop is right around the corner, and transportation to and from the airport is quick and easy. There is also a stop for the Phlash shuttle right in front of the hotel that will take you to all of the attractions. There are a number of shops and restaurants nearby.
