    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown

    Great location.


    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.

    Better Than Expected!


    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


    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

    A+ for the Courtyard Downtown


    We got an awesome price thru 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


    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.

    ... due to the Made in America Music Festival featuring Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Oops. I had no idea. And I love them. If you blink, you might miss this little pizzeria. It's in the heart of downtown, along a bustling street, filled with college students, transients, elderly couples just-a walking and fussing, and tonight, concert goers. But I didn't blink. I was laser-focused on the location acclaimed for the best Neapolitan-style pizza pies in Philly. The evening ...

    AS PER USUAL I have left this blog far too long, and now need to do updates for two cities. My final days in New York were most certainly interesting, in regards to my couchsurfing experience. But before I get into that, let me tell you about the high line walking tour I went on. The day of the high line tour I also headed up to the museum of natural history - a totally amazing 4 level museum with exhibits from all over the world. My favourite area would have been the North ...

    It was too early to check in so we left our car in the parking lot and caught a bus downtown. First stop was the Independence Visitor Center in Independence National Historical Park to get a ticket to visit Independence Hall. It's free to visit but you have to get a ticket with your tour time. Then we went to the National Constitution Center which was really ...

    ... Sydney, where she nannies. She was going back early to surprise her fiance! The girls and I went up to the Qantas desk, and the man explained that our flight was definitely cancelled and the next flight was not until 8:30 the next morning. I was pretty upset because I knew this was going to eliminate our free day to explore Sydney before meeting with our tour group, Contiki. Fortunately we were able to book seats on the flight and were told that we ...
