Fodor's Expert Review Philadelphia Marriott Old City

1 Dock St., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19106, USA

Convenient to downtown sights, this Colonial-style building is two blocks from Penn's Landing, three blocks from Headhouse Square, and four blocks from Independence Hall. Framed by archways, the four-story Greatroom Lobby is flooded with natural light and features spacious communal gathering areas. Guest rooms, completely renovated in 2019, have a clean, minimal feel, with modern tech amenities; the fourth-floor rooms facing east toward the Delaware River have the best views. The new “M Club” lounge level offers upscale food options and versatile work-and-leisure space. Society Commons, the hotel's sleek restaurant, serves classic American fare with clever tweaks; on-site coffee bar Common Grounds does quick bites and coffee to go.
