Comfortable beds and staff receive high praise
Daily fee for Wi-Fi if you're not a rewards program member
Just a short walk from Penn's Landing in historic Old City Philadelphia, this Marriott hotel boasts panoramic views of the Delaware River and is a convenient location for sightseers. And according to guests, that's not all: Recent visitors raved about the customer service employees, who are described as friendly and efficient. The guest rooms also earned praise for their comfortable Sweet Sleeper beds, flat-screen HDTVs and Starbucks coffee makers. However, some guests note that noise from nearby nightlife venues and passing traffic can seep into rooms on lower floors. To fill the time between exploring the town and sleeping, dive into the indoor swimming pool or grab a bite to eat at Taste, the in-house restaurant that serves contemporary American cuisine. Because of its Marriott family ties, this hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program, making it a convenient choice for travelers looking to earn or redeem rewards points.

Critic Reviews



Guest rooms ... are done in light earth tones and have enormous work desks and leather chairs. The fourth-floor rooms facing east toward the Delaware River have the best views. The glass ceiling over the indoor pool provides an outdoor feel year-round.
