    Great place to stay. In walking distance to tons of great restaurants and the train station is connected to the hotel. Also right across the street is Reading Terminal Market that has almost every type of cuisine in there. From fresh oysters to Cajun to Indian. Just to walk through and sample food is fun.

    What a grand palace of a hotel. This Marriott recently underwent a $64M renovation and it shows. The place is massive and has everything. Rooms are equipped with flat screen TVs, media plug in stations and all the usual high quality Marriott linens. Fantastic location connected to the convention center, across the street from Reading Terminal Market and next door to the Hard Rock. The only criticism is that it's perhaps to big. The lobby can feel like Grand Central Station during a snow storm. And if you're room is at the wrong end of the hotel, you have hike in front of you to get to the pool and gym. But still nice and locations in Philly don't get better than this.

    When I walked into this hotel, I felt as though I had entered an airport on a busy day. The place was bustling. Later I learned from a kind staff member that a citywide convention was in effect, so it makes sense that the hotel was buzzing and booked solid since it’s connected to the convention center. Also connected? A FedEx center, a full Starbucks and a restaurant. The lobby is huge and bright and nice place to hang out–I know this because there seemed to be a ton of people hanging out in the lobby, more than half of them with laptops. Were they all staying there? Maybe. Overall, this is the perfect hotel to stay in if you’re attending an event at the convention center. All you need (food, bars, entertainment, attractions) are a walk away.

    Stayed here for a wedding last March. Very nice room. The place is humongous! We also had brunch in their Restaurant 13 which was very good. We are going to book rooms here for my daughter's wedding next summer including a brunch as well.

    So far so good! Front desk allowed for an early checkin and I mean early - 10am, also I noted it in my reservation, but still come on that is awesome. Complimentary green apples at the front desk and on our way to our room ran into house keeping and I asked for extra shampoo and conditioner for my horse hair and I got it. Comp baby waters waiting for us in the room, our very, very clean room! Like I said so far so good!

    Typical Marriott, it is in a great location on Market St next to City Hall. South Broad st is two blocks away. Great place to stay if you are going to ball games. You can either drive down S Broad or take the subway.

    Very large and beautiful hotel. I loved being across the street from my favorite place in Philadelphia, the Reading Terminal Market. I didn't like the crowds and I got a bit lost going to and from my room, which was very nice. More technology than I'd personally use, but everything was new and clean and comfortable.
