Felt like a princess in a castle. Amazing location. Barbara checked us in was superb. Leroy the Bell Captian was charming and welcoming. Very close to Redding Market and directly across the street from City Hall. We will be back

The experience was top notch at every turn. Barbara at check-in made us feel like her personal guests. She provided a warm welcome and expert local knowledge with pleasure. Vickie was the cheeriest security officer you could meet. The Bellman hailing cabs was most gracious. It's clear this staff loved what they do and they do it incredibly well.

For almost half the price of the Marriott (right next door), the Courtyard is in a building with more character and with comparably similar rooms. I stayed here for 6 nights during a business trip and have no complaints. Location is central with the Jefferson Station (airport rail link) 2 blocks away. I felt as safe as could be expected...

I loved this hotel. Fantastic location, charming and historic building. Room was very clean with cool décor. Very seldom do you experience hotel staff from the lobby check in to the omelet chef to be so kind and truly care to give you best service possible. I was very impressed! It will always be my hotel of choice in Philly.

We spent an overnight here on a weekend visit to Philadelphia. This is in Center City across from the city hall so it is right in the middle of things.

My partner and I stayed over Halloween weekend for a quick anniversary getaway and had a wonderful time here. Recently renovated and sparkling clean, this will be or go to hotel in Philadelphia from now on. Don't forget to check out the great hot tub and pool area, with elevators that drop you directly at the door.

What a fantastic building and location. Excellent service throughout our stay, lovely rooms and free wifi. Opposite city hall and the historic Macy's, close to Reading Terminal Market and Independence Hall is about 15-20 mins stroll.

This hotel is perfectly situated in Philadelphia as it is not more than a 20 minute walk to many major sights and easily accessible by public transportation if you would prefer not to walk.
