Unfortunately our timing in visiting Philadelphia coincided with a major heat wave. We thought we could seek relief from the hot temps in a cooled off room after sightseeing . No not when it's 82 in your room and the hotel engineering dept tried to fix the AC (twice) The third visit they brought us floor fans! Sorry but if...

Franklin Marriott Hotel is located at Independence Park, so within very easy walking distance of major historical sites. We had a corner room, which was quite spacious. The hotel decor is a bit dated, which was far outweighed by the convenience of location and large room. Daniel, the concierge, was extremely helpful.

Excellent location next to independence hall and park. Decorated classically and elegantly. I received a complimentary room upgrade to a park view room with one king bed and one sofa bed. Room was very spacious and provided a spectacular view for historic area. Marriott gold and platinum members received a complimentary continental breakfast with some kinds of fruit, juice, pantries,...

My husband and our two kids (10 & 15) stayed here over the July 4th holiday. The city is busy at this time of year and the hotel was full. The staff did a terrific job surpassing every need we had, along with bedtime cookies and milk for the kids. Breakfast was divine! The rooms were well appointed, and spacious....

Great central location, large, clean, comfortable rooms with very nice amenities. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value, I've paid twice as much for hotels half as nice. Modern yet maintains classic style and ambiance. Whenever we go back to Philly this is where we will stay.
