The Philadelphia Downtown Courtyard by Marriott is a wonderful hotel that was converted from an old city hall annex. It is in a great location...walking distance to the historic district and the museums and very close to both the green and blue subway lines. Reading Terminal Market, Quiznos, Dunkin Donuts are really close for quick eats and there are a number of excellent restaurants close by too. The room was very spacious with fantastic blackout shades that did not let any light in for nice late sleeping. The bathroom area was a bit small but still functional. One day the room was not cleaned when we returned at 4, but was rectified immediately when we inquired. The exercise area is excellent, with high quality treadmills for running, a good weight area (machines/free weights) and complimentary fruit in the am. Nice 3-foot pool for kids. We would definitely stay here again!!!
