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.

Stayed for a weekend to see a concert and enjoy the city. Check in was easy and rooms were good, although might be time for some renovations. Breakfast was great and there are a few places nearby for lunch dinner. My only complaint was car valet, returned from a concert and waited 45 minutes for valet and nothing. Staff at front desk were helpful and ended up taking the car key and finally had somebody take care of the car. All in all a good experience

On january 1 i arrived for a 2 night stay.. snow arrived and i needed to delay leaving 1 day.. Kelly R was on front desk the day of arrival and for the next 3 days she so nicely took care of everything.. even forgetting the snow aspect,Kelly was great at her job..her warm smile and professional treatment was just what everyone should experience upon checking into a hotel.. checking in.. first impression..lasting impression. I come to philly to visit my daughter and often stay at either the courtyard or residence inn.. i will be back.. I too work a retail,people servicing job and felt i wanted to leave a positive feedback..thank you.. joann laflamme

I stayed at this hotel on and off for over 15 nights over a few weeks. The first problem I had was I experienced extreme rudeness from the woman at the front desk. It was a nasty episode that was handled extremely poorly by management. That, however, paled extremely in comparison to my last few days there. I had a significant bedbug problem. I ended up with a series of bites on my leg and a manager that tried to deceive me, hush up my concerns and treat me like I was paranoid. He told me they had their bug service check the room once while I was out of the room. That was a lie. They didnt even change the sheets for me, which I discovered when I returned at 4AM after a long day / night of work .The next night there were additional bug problems. I pressed the issue and was treated as if I was being paranoid. If i t were not for my insistence, it all would have been swept under the rug for the next unsuspecting guest. I ultimately got a call several hours after I checked out that they did indeed find adult bedbugs in my room and that I should throw away my luggage and dry clean everything I had. Both the management at this hotel and marriott management in general were horrible in the way they handled this! I would never stay there 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!

I enjoyed my stay here over a weekend I came to attend the Pour the Core festival the staff was friendly, the lounge area was cozy and breakfast was delicious. The room was very spacious equipped with a mini kitchenette, flat screen TVs, refrigerator etc. I would definitely recommend and come back here.

I really loved my stay here. They offer a nice lounge area which has great coffee options. Free breakfast that is so yummy, with a lot of options. They have a waffle maker with fixins. Grits with cheese on the side (which I did not expect but was so happy that they had it). The staff here is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are filled with the works, refrigerator, stove, microwave. Lovely flat screen tv as well. I would definitely stay here again.

Centered at the center of Philadelphia and next to the Reading Market Terminal!
