  • My wedding on 9/28/19 was the most amazing time because of the Marriott! Barbara was our sales woman and was amazing to work with. She explained all the details and showed us where the event would be held. Once we booked, she even offered us free flyers tickets in a box! It was the best time! Gerard Mendoza was our Wedding Planner & he was the most incredible person! He catered to our every need, was always quick to respond to any questions we had. We wanted to make a lot of changes to the food and other things and Gerard made it happen. He made the whole day stress free for us. He even got little gifts for our flower girl & ring bearer and was pretty much taking care of them throughout the night. Everything looked beautiful and turned out amazing! Gerard gave us the suite for an extra night and provided transportation for our honeymoon as well. He goes above and beyond and is simply amazing at what he does! I would put my full trust in him for any event. I cannot thank Gerard and... Read more

  • My groom and I had an incredible experience with our 10/20/18 wedding at the Marriott. I wrote a small novel to share our experience but I wished there were more reviews when I booked the Marriott so I hope this helps! Here are a few of the major areas where we had a great experience with the Marriott team. * Intros / Contract – We started the process with Barbara Bruck who gave us our tour, after which she treated us to a drink and apps at the lobby rest ‘13’. She was very accommodating during the process and stayed in touch but was not pushy. She also provided a detailed folder of information with menus, and floor plans of event space and guest rooms which I used up through the event to help with planning. * Planner Assignment – after working with Barbara, Gerard Mendoza was assigned as our day of coordinator. He was AMAZING from the beginning – immediately started off very personable, responsive to all requests, and I never had to keep pushing on any specifics (he ... Read more

  • We had a wonderful wedding at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. From the beginning, we met with Barbara who was extremely hospitable. My husband and I went to take a tour with her, and we were greeted with welcome bags and then cocktails after the tour. We went to look again with our mothers, and the same thing happened for them - it was such a nice treat! We were then given a coordinator, Gerard, who was great from beginning to end. He also responded promptly to emails, and checked in on us the entire wedding weekend. The quality of service that my husband and our families received was top notch the entire weekend. Gerard was also FANTASTIC with motivating our 3 year old ring bearer - his parents were so impressed, as were we. The wedding itself went very smoothly - we heard great feedback from our guests for the food and bar - which we thought was delicious as well. The lights were turned off once the dancing got fully underway around 9 or so, which made it really dark in the room,... Read more

  • Our wedding was an unforgettable night thanks to everyone we dealt with at the Marriott ! Gerard , especially, was very accommodating and helped us create the best evening! The liberty ballroom is beautiful and elegant . The bathrooms are clean and updated . Food is awesome ! Guests are steps away from their hotel room - which is great after a long night of dancing! I would highly recommend this venue !

  • YOU HAVE TO BOOK YOUR WEDDING AT THE MARRIOTT DOWNTOWN!!! It was an unbelievable, over the top experience. I cannot say enough good things about the people, venue and food. We had exceptional service throughout the entire wedding planning process (from initial site visit to contact signature to the day of the wedding and after). The Marriott Downtown made us feel so special. The attentiveness, the service, the food, I cannot say better things about our experience with them. The first thing we noticed when we went on our initial site visit was that Marriott employees are THE BEST, everyone from the valet guys, to check-in attendants, room service people, they are the friendliest employees ever. I also cannot say enough wonderful things about our event planner, Gerard, he is amazing. He was professional, extremely responsive and knowledgeable. He truly made us feel like home at the Marriott and helped us create the perfect wedding. If you are considering having your wedding in the heart... Read more

  • We had our wedding at the Marriott Downtown a few weeks ago. From the start, Patrick, our wedding coordinator, was amazing. He was so organized, helpful, very attentive (to my thousands of emails) and patient, and was one of the reasons why our wedding was great. The Marriott has amazing service and really takes care of their bride/groom along with all of their guests. We had around 105 guests which was a nice size for the Liberty Ballroom. All of our guests commented on how pretty the actual ballroom was. The food was also delicious which we also got comments on. The guest hotel rooms were also really nice and clean with no complaints. Patrick was so flexible and accommodating with every request. Everything was so easy having it all in one place with such a helpful staff and Patrick that we are so glad that we chose to have our wedding there. Thank you!

  • Will was amazing! She made sure everything was perfect from start to finish. She was very accommodating. The ballroom was beautiful. The food was incredible. The cocktail hour was delicious especially the sushi bar. Everything went according to plan and we couldn't have asked for better service.

  • We used the Mariott for our hotel block and their service was incredible. As the bride and groom, they truly made us feel special. The night of our wedding was made extra special when we came in to a little card reading, "Mr. and Mrs. Koch" a long with chocolate covered strawberries and some champagne.

  • We had the BEST WEDDING EVER and the Philadelphia Marriott was partly to blame. Their staff (especially Gerard Mendoza and Katie) went above and beyond what I would have expected and took care of absolutely everything from making sure I was able to change into flip-flops when my feet hurt to collecting of our belongings by the end of the night (guest book, cards, table numbers) and having them in our upgraded room before we even started looking for them. We have had so many compliments on how amazing the food was and how beautiful the Liberty Ballroom looked. This staff is professional and 110% accommodating. We loved being in a place where our guests could go right down to the hotel lobby bar after the party, stay over and then meet for breakfast the next morning. Highly recommend!

  • The Marriott made the wedding of my dreams come true, and more. From the start, the staff was creative, flexible, and devoted. Our banquet manager, Gerard, in particular went above and beyond. From the tasting, to the amenities he provided my family and I, to the personalized attention he gave my wedding, I truly could not have asked for more. Beautiful venue, phenomenal food, and service that truly sets the standard.

  • Warning: Even though we booked 50 rooms with the Marriott, the whole process was terribly managed and they mischarged us an extra $2K for someone else's event. ..... We used the Marriott for our wedding block since we were getting married in Center City Philly and someone else had recommended the Marriott (and in particular, the wedding coordinator). We booked our room block a year in advance with this particular coordinator and he was fantastic!! He was friendly, helpful, proactive -- all of the things you would look for when you work with someone for your wedding. Everything went downhill from there though when this wedding coordinator moved into a new role in June. After he left, the Marriott put a temporary person in the position and then fully filled it not long after. I did not hear, by phone, from the new wedding coordinator until about a month and a half before the wedding and from Day 1, I found her to be reactive, uncommunicative, and simply not helpful when it came to...

  • This October, we had our 3-day, 5-event Indian wedding at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. We had the best experience working with the venue from the initial meetings, emails, phone-calls, responsiveness, and follow through. Our events were in the Franklin Hall, Independence Ballroom, Liberty Ballroom, and Grand Ballroom. All of the event spaces where nicely managed, clean, and airy. We worked closely with Gerard Mendoza who was super helpful and flexible with us. The staff was culturally competent and totally understand about our cultural needs as well since we had a traditional Indian wedding. We were also assigned event staff who made sure we were well taken care of during the wedding events. I would highly recommended this venue for your future wedding, you will not be disappointed!

  • We held our ceremony at JWs balcony in the Marriott. The space was the nicest looking and best view, but was unfortunately noisy being that close to the lobby. We decided to hold it there anyway and just dealt with the noise since it was a short ceremony. Nicole and Mylene were great to work with and handled all of our requests. Nicole went above and beyond to resolve some initial problems we had reserving rooms and Mylene executed our day of events just the way we planned. Both very nice people. Great value if you're just doing your ceremony there and for guest rooms. A great location for out of town guests with the train station nearby and several available parking garages.
