In the heart of Philadelphia’s business district, and in the heart of America's historic quest for liberty, the Philadelphia Marriott commands a towering presence. The hotel is only eight miles from the Philadelphia International Airport and is easily accessible from major interstates and Amtrak’s 30th Street Station.
On-site dining includes Allie’s American Grill, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lighter fare is available at Starbucks (offering coffee and danish) while Market Street Express offers breakfast, lunch and dinner items available ‘to go.’ Champions Sports Bar serves lunch and dinner, while J.W. Steakhouse is open for dinner only. The Marriott also has an indoor pool, health club, whirlpool, sauna and nearby tennis facilities.
You won't have to venture far to experience great dining and entertainment, as the Marriott is conveniently located in downtown Philadelphia, across the street from the Hard Rock Café as well as the popular Reading Terminal Marketplace, an open-air smorgasbord of 80 eateries and merchants.
