Pros: nice location, nice front desk help, prompt room service request. Cons: The sheets were stained and the bathroom was rusting. Given that, it's probably over priced, but it's hard to beat that central location. Step out to face City Hall and cross the street to jump into the train station. Walk right around the corner to a seemingly endless supply of bars, eateries and shopping.

The staff and room quality were second to none. I loved the munchies at 6:00 PM and the free breakfasts. The area around the hotel is full of activity and history. I will stay there again and again when business demands it, and I am even planning to take my family there. Marc Hutchinson on the staff was especially terrific.

Lovely service and hospitality. Kelly at the front desk is friendly and accommodating. Everyone who works in the hotel industry should take some lessons from her ... Very professional yet warm and approachable. Kudos Kelly! Janet the housekeeper on the 18th floor is a real gem who was also very friendly and accommodating. A nice lady and hard worker. Overall a lovely hotel with great personnel. It's also very quiet ... No street noise or hall noise. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this Residence Inn last weekend (April 17th & 18th) and were upgraded to one of the converted rooms on the 26th floor. You have to take an elevator up to the 25th floor and then a separate one to the 26th, but that's a minor inconvenience at most. The 26th floor apparently used to be a penthouse, but they remodeled it to include a few rooms that don't include stoves, but still have a refrigerator and microwave. We weren't doing any cooking, so that was not a negative for us. The room had great high ceilings and an awesome view of downtown Philadelphia. We had a king size bed, which was fairly comfortable, but the pillows were awful and we requested feather instead. That made a huge difference and I recommend anyone staying do the same. They brought them up to us within 5 minutes of our request. Our only complaints were with the bathroom and the air conditioning. In regards to the bathroom, the tile work was well done and sink was modern. The toilet didn't have a lid, which was a little odd, but not a huge issue. The baseboard heater was on for some reason when we got to the room and had no way to turn it off, so we had maintenance take care of that. It was far too warm outside to still be running a heater. Our biggest complaint was with the shower. For such a modern design, the shower head was tiny and under-powered. It also had some of the most intermittent hot water I've ever experienced in a hotel. It took almost five minutes to get luke warm water and then in the middle of the shower, would switch to scalding hot water and then back again. This definitely needs to be addressed so that someone, especially a child, isn't burned. The air conditioner issue was more of a personal preference problem than anything else. It was relatively mild weather in Philadelphia and we couldn't get the air conditioner to go below 65 degrees. I've seen the same in many hotels, but find that to be ridiculous. A quick Google search clued me in on how to override it and that solved the issue. Overall, a nice hotel with modern amenities that need some tweaking.

Excellent location for going to the Reading Terminal Market and even the Kimmel Center (although the walk is about 10 minutes). Relatively easy on and off the highway (676). Recommended.

Definitely sub-par for a Marriott. Everything is old and broken. Many reviews here discussed bed bugs. I didn't have any bed bug issues but I was concerned there was no covers protecting the mattresses, just sheets. Bedbugs could move in at any time. I noticed a stain on my sheets. It didn't bother me because it wasn't on the part I was sleeping on but it stayed there for multiple days which means they never changed the sheets! I'm also fairly confident that they were taking the towels I left on the bathroom floor and putting them back on the racks instead of changing them. On the plus side the staff was very friendly but for the money I would never stay here again

I came for a week long conference and thoroughly enjoyed my stay! The staff were always friendly and gave great recommendation on places to eat and drink - and helped me find a place that serves beer on nitro! My room was always clean. The extended stay functionality was great. Breakfast was impressive! And they even were kind enough to mail me something I forgot in my room after I left!
