    Fantastic Wedding!

    My husband and I were married here in May 2019, shortly before the property was rebranded as The Notary Hotel. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. My husband and I are both from Philly, but we currently live in California. It was really important for us to have a "Philly wedding." The location and decor of this hotel couldn't be beat. Angela and Nicole were such a pleasure to work with and our big day went off without a hitch. Also, it was so practical hosting our ceremony, reception, and hotel room block in one venue. We're Bonvoy Gold members and the service we received was everything we've come to expect from Marriott. The food was delicious and our suite was amazing.

    At first we were a little disappointed to have our ceremony and reception in the same ballroom with a gap between the two, due to construction taking place in the hotel at the time, but Angela worked hard to make up for it in other ways and we were so grateful. At the end of the day, our wedding was spectacular and our guests had a great time.

    If you're having your wedding here, or any Marriott property, I advise you to get one of the Bonvoy credit cards and use it for all of your payments to the hotel. The points you'll earn will go along way to covering your honeymoon nights.

    We chose to have our wedding here in June and we cannot express just how happy we were with this choice. While everything was fantastic and beyond our expectations, the MVP of this event was definitely Angela, our wedding coordinator at the Courtyard. She was the most organized coordinator one could hope for and *always* on top of everything. She emailed us questions when necessary and chased us when we forgot to answer one. She was in 20 places at once and made sure everything went according to plan. If Marvel makes a movie about a super hero whose ability is freakishly on point wedding coordination, Angela will star.

    That said a few other points worth noting:

    1) The chef is phenomenal – the food was delicious far beyond what I expected from a hotel kitchen. He was super fun to work with at the tasting and everyone raved about the food at the wedding. Tip – go for the lamb and sea bass.

    2) This is unlike other Courtyards and feels more like a well renovated historic hotel. The rooms and hallways are elegant and the bridal suite was gorgeous – we hosted a bridal party there with 15 and it easily could have fit more. The room and hallways decorations are REALLY nice and give this hotel a very classy vibe.



    3) You really get your money’s worth here – it’s Courtyard prices (lower than the high end Marriott brands) but because of the nature of this specific Courtyard, you get quality a lot closer to the J.W. Marriott brand in quality and décor.

    4) The staff that supported our wedding behind the scenes were all extremely competent and pleasant. Whenever we needed anything, from a suggestion of where to get a cheese platter to some muscle to move boxes around, they were immediately on hand to help out, with a smile. Frankly I don’t know if I’ve ever dealt with a more friendly hotel staff. City of Brotherly Love!
