Located on Penn Square near the center of the downtown area, the Residence Inn Philadelphia Center City is a high-rise hotel that belongs to the Marriott family of hotels. This is an extended-stay hotel, used mostly by business persons who find it necessary to be in the city for an extended period of time. The facility is within walking distance of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, City Hall, Reading Terminal Market, the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, and many other attractions and historic sites. It is also located about 15 blocks from 30th Street Station, the main ground transportation hub for Philadelphia, and about a 10 minute drive from the Philadelphia International Airport.
Because this is an extended stay facility, it is an all suite hotel. There are 269 suites total and guests can choose from studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom suites, all with full kitchens so that guests can prepare meals rather than have to eat out at restaurants each day. Complimentary grocery shopping service is available for the convenience of busy guests. In addition, the suites include separate areas for sleeping, living, and working. Other general room amenities include coffee maker/tea service, iron and ironing board, choice of pillows, sofa bed, hairdryer, and luxury bedding.

The fitness center is complimentary for all Residence Inn guests. For other recreational options, guests can head to some top-notch golf courses located just outside the city limits.
The only restaurant onsite at the Residence Inn Philadelphia is one that serves free continental breakfast each morning. The Hearth Room Home Touch breakfast includes a huge array of both hot and cold breakfast items including cereal, egg dishes, pancakes, fresh waffles, fruit, and more.
