  • 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... Read more

  • 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 renov... Read more

  • 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 organi... Read more

  • 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!

  • We knew we wanted to have a reception in Center City but were worried about finding a place that would fit in our budget. We were also leaning towards doing a hotel wedding because of the number of out of town guests who were invited. After meeting with Lisa, we knew that the Courtyard was a perfect fit for us. There are two ballrooms, and we chose the smaller of the two because of the view of City Hall and the Philadelphia Skyline. Chris was wonderful to work with as we started the planning process. He was very flexible and accommodating when we made some last minute changes days before the wedding. The meals that Chef Ricky prepared were wonderful and the service was great. Also, they were able to offer an amazing hotel room rate for our out of town guests. We're so happy we chose to have our reception at the Courtyard!

  • We had a large wedding block at the Courtyard Marriott in Philly for our 1.2.16 wedding and the experience was excellent. We worked with Tricia who was so extremely helpful and very responsive. This was by far THE nicest Marriott I have ever been to. Great amenities and such an awesome location for a stellar price! Wedding or just a weekend away, I'd recommend this spot!

  • We did not get married here, but we hosted our wedding hotel block at the Courtyard and they were amazing to work with! 1. Logistics: The Courtyard was much better organized than our other hotel block (the Ritz). They have an automated system to take block reservations, so guests don't have to remember to use a code, and they automatically send you a list every week of all the people who have booked, so you don't have to constantly pester the coordinator to get updates. 2. Coordinator: Our coordinator, Tricia, was awesome. She always replied promptly to my emails and constantly checked in to make sure I had everything I needed. 3. Rooms & Hotel: The rooms are beautiful. They're spacious, recently renovated, and nicely sound-proofed. I couldn't hear a thing from the other rooms. The hotel is also in the perfect location downtown. It's an amazing deal for the price. Our suite was gorgeous and had ample room for our friends to hang out with us. 4. Hotel Staff: Many of my gues... Read more

  • If you are looking for a hotel wedding in the city, look no further. The space was beautiful, the staff was amazing, and the chef was out of this world. We had the most amazing day because of the Courtyard. A special thanks to Lisa the sales manager, Angie the event manager, and the executive Chef. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

  • The Courtyard Marriott was absolutely amazing! Their professional and courteous staff made our wedding headache-free and and exciting. They are true experts and over delivered on all levels. Our wedding planner Dana was perfectly accommodating and helpful while providing top notch advice on all aspects of the event. The rehearsal dinner restaurant ended up closing the day of due to weather and she worked with her team to cater it themselves and provide the location in the hotel (a total miracle!). The venue itself was beautiful, elegant, and downright magical. A great location right downtown. All of our guests could not stop praising the food and atmosphere of the ballroom. Overall we were totally ecstatic at how perfect the night turned out and can not thank the Marriott enough! We can guarantee they will provide an amazing experience and would recommend them 100%!!!

  • I'm a mom writing about my son's wedding at this beautiful venue. We could not have asked for a more beautiful center city location. The entire bridal party stayed here and it is a first class hotel. The cocktail hour and reception couldn't have been more perfect. The food was excellent, the room was lit beautifully and the bartenders and wait staff couldn't have made things easier. Dana and the entire team bent over backwards making this process so easy. I loved her ideas. Chef and company cooked the delicious dinner and the selections satisfied everyone. Maureen, the front desk manager handled all of the room requests and made sure that we were all super happy with our accommodations. This wedding took place in between 2 major snowstorms but we felt confident that nothing would be compromised and were reassured by Dana every step of the way. Our rehearsal dinner was cancelled by a nearby restaurant due to the storm. When I called Dana she set up a rehearsal dinner in a private room ... Read more

  • My reception was held at the downtown Marriott Courtyard. Dana and her staff were really helpful with all of the preparations leading up to the wedding. The ballroom was perfect for our size wedding and our guests absolutely loved when they pulled the curtains and could see city hall and the surrounding skyline!!! It was a memorable day! The food was unbelievable and the service was prompt and friendly. The wedding cake from Classic Cakes was better the day of the wedding than at the tasting...I couldn't believe it!!! The downtown courtyard was the best price for a luxurious venue in center city.

  • If you want a center city wedding in a historic, beautiful location, then this is the place for you. Every little detail and request was met by the events staff and we could not have been happier with our venue choice. Everything leading up to the day of the event was handled amazingly by the staff at the Marriott and my vision was met on every level. The food was fantastic and it was an ideal location for our many out of town guests. I can't say enough amazing things about this venue, except book it!!

  • I agree with one of the other reviewers, who said, “I don’t think you can find a better venue to host your Philadelphia wedding reception!” I am still in shock that we were able to afford to host our wedding at such a beautiful, grand, Center-City location. The Marriott was excellent from the very beginning of the sales process. They were flexible with the packages so that we could pay for the things that were important to us and eliminate the things that were not. The planning leading up to the event went smoothly even despite some staffing transitions. Dana and Darrin (Event Planner and Event Host) were very consultative during our planning discussions, especially when it came to day-of logistics. Dana was also very attentive in the two weeks leading up to the event. Ultimately, all of our detailed requests were noted on the Event Order and then executed perfectly by the Marriott team on the wedding day. I thought that the food was delicious, and the bartende...

  • Oh gosh- where do I even begin? This was by far the wedding of my dreams thanks to all of the amazing staff at the Courtyard. The value of having a wedding here was fantastic- so much was included- the bridal suite (which is HUGE), a room for the parents the night of the wedding, a private holding room with food and drinks for the bridal party, amazing food, great service. We planned this wedding from Denver and Angie was truly a god send. She answered all of my questions- no matter how silly or how small of a detail- within in hours and most of the time within minutes of emailing her. She coordinated with all of my other vendors to make sure things flowed as smooth as possible. She was there during the rehearsal and during the actual wedding making sure everything was going just as planned. I received so many compliments on how easy this wedding was for the guests- we had the ceremony in the Grand Ballroom, the cocktail reception in the foyer of the floor below, and the recept...
