We spent two nights at this hotel. The room was large and clean. The hotel staff was hospitable and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast and the staff in the breakfast area were nice. The breakfast area was clean. The hotel provided theme nights for the guests to enjoy and get to know each other. We would stay there again.

The hotel is in a great location, right at city hall in center city. The hotel is an old building, very beautiful. I had a corner room and had floor to ceiling windows on two sides of the room. The carpet, wall paint and bed were relatively new. The bed itself was very comfortable, without the sag in the side...

As a Marriott Rewards member, we frequent this chain quite frequently. Stayed here on a Saturday night to attend a local fundraiser. Front Desk service was ok, not great.... Upon entering the room, there was a large noisy machine to clean the air.... Needed to call to have it removed... Parking is over $50 including a $10 Phila tax ........

Dear johns1012, Thank you for taking time and providing us valuable feedback on your stay. I do want to agree that it was an "off" day. Our Front Desk usually receives great comments on their service and I hope when you try us again so that we may make up for this stay. Thank you,

Microwave, fridge and cutlery and plates etc. comfy bed, I asked for extra pillows - no problems. I recommend the reading terminal market for some great food.great service...

Very conveniently located hotel right across from City Hall. The room was a bit small and there was no place to sit other than the bed or desk chair. Forced air heat was a bit on the fussy side. We were cold most the time. The bed was comfortable, but get a room higher up. On the fifth floor the...

Spent two nights in January with a party of 6 family members in two rooms. I am not sure if the hotel has rooms with two beds but both of our rooms had a King plus a couch bed, which was fine for the kids. The room was clean, The K-size bed very comfortable, personal room temperature control worked perfectly,...

What a great location - next door to the historical Wanamaker building and City Hall. The staff was professional, friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning to this hotel soon. Be sure to visit the Reading Terminal Market while you are there!

I had a really great 2-day experience in the Residence Inn Philadelphia Center City. The room was very comfortable and the view from the window was great. Our breakfast was more then filling and the variety of food... impressed. 10 points from 10.

Fantastic location! Could not ask for a better location across from City hall and blocks from China Town and numerous business areas of Philadelphia. The hotel rooms are spacious and breakfast wonderful!

The hotel has about the best location possible in the city, literally across the street from city hall. Philly is spread out enough that there is no 1 single location for all possible attractions, but downtown is pretty close and a good start. The hotel is obviously in a very old building, however the interior was nice, as with all...
