Stayed at this property for 5 nights for a Choir Conference. It is in a great central location near historic sites. Expect a crowd. There were several conferences that coincided with ours. The staff were very friendly, but we had several issues. We reserved a 2 double bed room, but upon arrival, we were told that they didn't have one...

The place was clean, as you would expect from a Marriott. However, I have a few complaints. I was really annoyed to learn that I had to pay for the internet. Free internet is only available for Marriott Rewards people, and I wasn’t one of them. Most other hotels these days have free internet for everyone. Marriott doesn’t. I’ll keep...

Typical Marriott . Skip the valet parking if you can. You can wait in line to get into the driveway for 30-45 minutes sometimes. Even when you call valet to get your car, can take awhile if they even answer the phone.

I spent a week in this hotel and while most staff in the hotel were amazing polite and courteous, and helpful, i can't rate this hotel highly due to the actions of what can only be described as a manager having a bad day and taking it out on customers. I attended for a conference from the UK (for a...

I just came back from staying at this Marriott and it was one of my worst nights in a Marriott property. I had stayed here once in past and at that time while I did think it could use a serious upgrade, atleast I had decent nights sleep. This time around I got room 781 and the amount of noise...

You can earn 500 Marriot Rewards points per day for 3 day max if you opt to avoid cleaning your room. I got 1500 points, Yayy. Plus they gave me a huge bag of toiletries when I asked on day 2, and it was all type of stuff. A razor, toothbrush, toothpaste, lotions etc.. Also extra towels. Lastly, the food...

I have been stayed in this hotel at least 2 times last year, and I am going to stay in it again this year :-) The hotel is conveniently located with lots of cuisine choices. The Readington Market is right across the street, and China town is only 2 blocks away. There are also Italian, Mediterranean restaurants nearby. The BigBus...

Breakfast service was more than 1.5 hours late and then cancelled (with no charge as though that was a favor to me?), the elevators are not functioning properly and we waited 15 minutes to get an elevator (making us late for a meeting), and the rooms are dated with mediocre feeling of cleanliness. Not a good conference hotel. Stay near...

The Philadelphia Downtown Marriot is centrally located but show its age. The decor is the older style and not the more modern style that has been working its way through the Marriott Hotel System. The rooms are modest in size. The dining facility if open from breakfast to dinner and the fare is reasonable. At breakfast however one member of...
