This weekend brought GSNENY on a whirlwind tour of Philadelphia. The girls walked around the city on Saturday, slept over at the zoo, and then made sure to run up the steps at the Museum of Art - Rocky-style. Here are the girls' stories:
Kiersten - I liked seeing the awesome animals, but mostly the cheetahs. I also liked the gift shop :)
Kaitlin - It was a very happy experience for me! I think my ...
... contained liberty". The box actually contained hundreds of pictures of Americans, including a picture of me they had taken before the show. It was actually pretty cool, but definitely more for kids than for adults.
After that, I decided to go to Independence Hall. Unfortunately for me, they only allow people into Independence Hall by tour and all of the tours had been sold out for the day. As a result, I was only able to see it from the outside. Instead, I ...
... on the track. Emma literally sat on the passenger next to her. Not me. The safari tour was nice and the parade was great to see. With Epcot in our sights on the third day we went straight for the soaring ride. A wonderful flying simulator with extra sensory smells. An incredible experience that left me white knuckled on the handles (I'm a little bit scared of heights). We walked out of that building to be greeted with a heavy down pour. We rode all indoor rides and ...
Green tea iris mousse cake.
They kinda forgot about us after the Kobe beef course, so that got annoying. The waitress finally realized it and mentioned it to the sushi guy. She avoided us, but got the manager to come to apologize to us for the delay. I was hoping for a comped meal, but that never happened.
Overall, it was great. The food was well above my expectations. Sure, she paid an arm and a leg for it, but *******n it, I'm special and I deserve ...
... arrived there on Sa************ed out for an infamous Philly Chessesteak sandwich (exactly what it says on the tin - my brother would love it). And, to my delight, I discovered that, that evening, there was a free concert and fireworks on the riverfront, setting a precedent over over-dramatic celebrations and freestuff that was to continue for the rest of the weekend. God bless America, and god bless freebies! The fireworks were fantastic, in any case - I don't think ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown
Great location, good sized rooms. I was lucky enough to get one over looking the square. Room was very clean and well maintained, Hotel is in my opinion well run and gave you confidence in its security. Didn't use restaurant in hotel self but was told it is good. Nice bar. Decent restaurants nearby.
Perfect location, value, and property
We just stayed here over the Christmas holiday, and we stay at this hotel once or twice a year with our three small kids. It's a block from the Reading Terminal Market, and only a few blocks from Chinatown and the theater district. The rooms are large and the pool's perfect for small kids. We got a AAA rate with breakfast every day that was less than a room alone at the Doubletree down the street. The staff was extremely courteous and responsive. We love this place.
Stayed here for 3 nights over last weekend in room 302. Spacious room with really comfortable bed. No complaints at all. Good location near to Reading Terminal Market which does fantastic breakfasts/lunches
Very Courteous and kid friendly
Over Columbus Day weekend I decided last minute to get on Amtrak with my children and go see Philadelphia. I got the best room rate on Marriott's website. Courtyard Downtown is in beautiful old building with renovated interior. All the employees I came in contact with, were female and so so nice and helpful. They helped me to get largest size room with two double beds...brought up rollaway, that turned out to be non-folding, regular looking twin size bed on wheels with a thick comfortable mattress. Pool wasn't enormous, but perfect for my kids to play and relax in after full day of sightseeing. Also was referred to Marathon Grill around the corner for wonderful kid-friendly and sophisticated breakfast. A perfect overnight adventure for a mom and her kids.
Great place to stay in Philly
The Courtyard is a great place to stay in downtown Philly. It is conveniently located near the convention center and has everything one needs for a delightful, comfortable stay. We were promptly greeted by the valet and bellman who whisked away our bags. The greeting was better than some I have had at allegedly 5 star hotels. We were checked in promptly. The room was clean and comfortable and housekeeping promptly cleaned our room each day. There is a nice bar in the lobby to hang out and pleasant pool, jacuzzi and well appointed gym. All of this for a very affordable price! You can't go wrong.
My husband and I just completed a two-night stay at this hotel. Upon check-in we asked for a king size bed, but were told none were available and were given two doubles. We were certain that was not true, but we got over it. The room we were given was very new looking, smelled good, was clean and quiet. The only big complaint both my husband and I had was that the beds were very hard. We both like firm mattresses, but these mattresses were like boards! The bar area on the first floor was a nice place to unwind and talk. We parked our car at a small, 24 hour parking lot right behind the hotel at a $12.00 weekend rate; a decent savings over the $28.00 valet parking. The hotel was located close to the subway and within walking distance of many restaurants and theaters. Overall, I thought the hotel was worth the price and would stay there again.
Beautiful hotel and location, but this hotel has some problems. I checked in at 9 pm to find my room had not been cleaned - dirty sheets, towels on the floor, etc. Went back down to registration to request a new room and was told that it would be little while until they could get a room cleaned for me. Did eventually get a new room - was upgraded to a suite without a view - as well as an invitation for drinks by the guy at the front desk, which I promptly declined. Housekeeping left something to be desired - they never came to my new room to clean it during my two-night stay. Food in the restaurant was okay, service very slow.
They could do better
This is a nice convention hotel but if you are not part of a convention, forget it. When we stayed there for a weekend when they were full we had no hot water for the entire weekend. When we complained we got a $10 discount. C'mon now - you stay at a hotel for a decent bed and a hot shower
We got an awesome price thru hotels.com on the Courtyard in center city Philly. The building had been an old government building (think stately and well-built, not run-down and dreary) and overlooked the huge city hall, a really cool old government building. The staff was friendly and the rooms were of adequate size for the amount of time we spent there.
The hotel has a great location. The service was average, and parking fees were high, as is standard for all of Philly. The rooms were small, but decent for the price (We Pricelined). We had to change rooms once due to poor cleanliness, but were immediately accomodated with a new better room. Not the Ritz, but a good value nonetheless.
