We like the offerings of Courtyards, and this one was perfect in a great location. We stayed here while visiting the Barnes Foundation Museum of Art for two days, a short cab ride away. Service was excellent and staff was very helpful with directions to local eateries. Be sure to check out the incredible food market/eating choices in the nearby...

It's a great location, right next to the Reading Terminal Market and the hotel is ok. The building is beautiful and they have done a nice job with the remodel. There is a nice little but well outfitted gym and the Starbucks in the lobby is welcome in the morning.

A former city hall annex, the lobby has beautiful architecture. Rooms are big and comfortable. Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. I enjoyed it more than the full-service Marriott where I normally stay. Only downside is limited food/room-service.

Almost everything about this hotel is perfect. The location is ideal for exploring Philadelphia and the rooms are comfortable and clean. It was once the city hall annex and the architecture is worthy of checking out even if you aren't staying there. Even on the tenth floor, we could hear some street noise throughout the night--not terrible, but not good...
