      Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown

      Great location.

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Fantastic

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Better Than Expected!

      from

      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.

      Needs improvement

      from

      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

      from

      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

      A+ for the Courtyard Downtown

      from

      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.

      They hooked us up with a king bed overlooking the city hall with no hassle. We arrived long before the posted check-in time, but they still gave us a room immediately. There was plenty of shopping and food choices along Market Street, and we bought a 24-hour bus pass for $5.50 and used the local buses for all of our travel needs. (Bus 44 takes you straight down Market to Liberty Park & Old Town where all the historical stuff is.) We were VERY impressed with the swimming pool and hot tub at the hotel. The pool is tiny but it and the hot tub are on the 5th floor of the hotel and look out over the city. Very awesome at night! We definitely will stay there again.

      Above average

      from

      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.

Not wanting to waste time we opted to tour the district closet to us for today particularly as we hadn't much light left outside. We managed to fit in Liberty Bell and the Independence Hall which to our delight were free to walk round and highly interesting ...

      ... s Alley, which claims to be the oldest street in the U.S. dating from the 1690's. Most likely St. Augustine would beg to differ. It was such a quaint area---much like a trip back in time with its narrow cobblestone street and lovely restored homes. We passed the Quaker Meeting House on the way back to the hotel and stopped in. Very interesting and quiet, out of the beaten bath.

      In the words of Will Smith, I am now in Philadelphia 'where I was born and raised'. I am staying with Ainsley who was a study abroad student at St. Andrews last term, and who I adopted to be my academic daughter. She lives a little outside of the city in an absolutely stunning neighbourhood full of green trees, beautiful houses, great shops and restaurants and fantastic schools. And the best part? She has just got a 10 week old 'juggle' puppy (mix of ...
