About Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia Downtown

Historical Elegance. Modern Luxury.
An award-winning restoration has recaptured the grandeur of our building’s 1926 origins, but with a nod to the modern age. This one-time City Hall Annex — now on the National Register of Historic Places — is all about style and elegance with coffered plaster details, stunning bronze work, and striking marble finishes, plus an interior design that melds the classic with the contemporary. We feature two stunning 3,000 sq ft Ballrooms rooms at our Philadelphia downtown hotel that are ideal for weddings and receptions.

Everything about this venue was fantastic! The location has all the old charm of Philadelphia, the feel of a boutique hotel, and a beautiful modern event space. It's right across the street from City Hall too, which is great for photos. The value is incredible for being right in the heart of the city and being the only wedding at the hotel for your specific date.

From start to finish, my experience with the event team was fantastic. I booked with Nicole, and she made sure to answer all my questions prior to booking the event and even arranged for multiple visits so that my parents could see the space before we booked. I had multiple events for my wedding weekend, and our event coordinator Angela, and the Maitre D', George, made sure everything went perfectly! Angela worked with me and my mom to coordinate every last detail of the weekend, and she made sure she was available to me the entire weekend in case there were any last minute problems that popped up. She was incredibly organized and thought of everything we would possibly need for the big day. We couldn't have planned everything without her! George was also fantastic! He made sure the ceremony space was exactly what I wanted, including building out a larger stage for our ceremony, and made sure to check-in with me throughout the weekend to make sure I was happy with everything. The team at the Courtyard Marriott made me feel truly special and I could not have asked for a better weekend!

Our experience with the team at the Courtyard Marriot was nothing short of fantastic! From the very beginning they were attentive, accommodating and willing to work with you in order to make your special day that much more amazing. Our Wedding Coordinator Christopher Welch was very responsive and attentive to my consistent questions and he made it his priority that everything was perfect the day of. His efforts leading up the wedding is something will always be grateful for. On top of that our food was absolutely amazing and the chef Ricky was fantastic to work with. Everyone raved about the food and are attendant for the night Darren was fantastic as well. The hotel itself is beautiful with a nice mix of modern and historic that makes the venue truly unique and all at a very decent price. My wedding was everything I could have dreamed of and more thanks to everyone at the Courtyard Marriott Downtown!

Professional Network & Endorsements

Great staff to work an event with.

It is always a pleasure to work with the staff at the Courtyard. Steve and Company and the Courtyard were selected to work with David Tutera on the My Fair Wedding television program. The night was a blast and went off without a glitch. This was mainly due to the professionals at the Marriott. The management staff always have every person performing at his or her best, the hotel is immaculate and the location is perfect Always a pleasure!!!

Our band performed a wedding at The Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia Downtown in October, 2010. I must say that this is a wonderful venue with extremely helpful and great staff to work with. The service was excellent. We highly recommend them for any wedding or event! Kathy Straley, Toga Party Band LLC
