Perfect location; best value for $$$!!

I could not have selected a more perfect hotel for our recent stay: 6/28 - 7/3. SEPTA train from AP costs $7 and delivers you to Market East Station..1/2 block from the hotel. Actually served by three lines....walking distance to famous Reading Terminal Market; Chinatown (yummm); PA Convention Center; the Old Historic District; and Philly's 3 main streets: Arch, Market and Broad. Catch the Philly Phlash Trolley and sightseeing buses/trolleys nearby too. The rooms are are new and very nice...probably the best city center hotel we've ever gotten in the major U.S. cities of Chicago, Boston, D.C., NYC, etc. Staff is super friendly and helpful...extended our checkout by 2 hours too. Very, very pleasant stay....no complaints whatsoever! Go there and use www.priceline.com

Unique Quality: Beautifully renewed City Hall Annex recalls a bygone era of elegance. Many private parties use this stately location; people inPhilly still like to dress up in tuxes and gowns to come here. Great views from some of the rooms. Enhanced security feastures are good too: security card keys are needed to get to your floor and the lobby doors are locked at 11 PM and the security card keys are required for entry. USA Today paper each AM....free iced tea inthe lobby. Don't pass up this bargain and perfect location for your Philly stay!!!

Directions: Market East Station on SEPTA from AP

Downtown Elegance at a Reasonable Price

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

We stayed the weekend at the Marriott Courtyard Downtown location and I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by it. We stayed here on Marriott points, and of course a free hotel is always great, but I was really expecting something much less elegant than it actually turned out to be. This property is nothing like any of Marriott's other Courtyards which all look the same inside and out and evoke a sense of "chain-ness". This hotel is built inside of the old City Hall Annex, a gorgeous, gothic-style stone high rise across from City Hall and the Masonic Temple.

Unique Quality: The views of the city from this hotel were stunning and it's location was perfect, within walking distance of most of Philadelphia's historic attractions, many restaurants, the shopping and financial districts, and at least 3 subway stations. The hotel has a bar which serves meals, a restaurant, several meeting and banquet facilities, and a small pool and hot tub area with exercise equipment.

My only complaint is that the rooms were somewhat sparse (no bathrobes, no conditioner), but that is just me being a princessy pain in the you-know-what. They actually have everything that anyone would need.

Directions: Next to City Hall
