"Once we were able to stay, the stay was great."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I flew in from Texas for the Army Navy game on 12/13. I met a high school friend that had driven to Philadelphia from his home in Connecticut. We gave our names to the lady behind the desk and she found both in her computer. However, she explained that the hotel had been oversold and our rooms were no longer available. It was explained that since we booked our rooms through a 3rd party, our rooms were sold to other guests that booked through the Marriott website, obviously at a higher rate than what I had paid. The manager's name was Stephen and he could not have been nicer. He promised to take care of us and to find us rooms at another comparable hotel. It took 30 minutes or so but he booked us rooms at the Renaissance hotel near the airport. The Renaissance used to be a nice hotel and will be again as it is currently being remodeled. The room that my friend and his wife stayed in had been remodeled but mine and my wife's room had not. After the game on Saturday, we returned to the Philadelphia 201 and were greeted again by Stephen and his courteous staff. We were checked in and had a nice, one night stay in the hotel that we chose for this bucket list weekend. My only frustration is that I feel like unnecessary stress was placed on my party and Stephen for that matter, simply so the hotel could make a little extra money. The hotel was going to be sold out that weekend simply because of the game so why sell rooms to a 3rd party in the first place? Why put your guests out and force your manager to jump through hoops just to make, what, another $50 on the room rate? That seems like a heck of risk to take for not a lot of money. Stephen refunded our money for the first night's stay and the night at the Renaissance was on the house but we received no compensation for our time and fuel that it took to drive back and forth. The Philadelphia 201 Hotel is a very nice property in a good location that is staffed by helpful people. I was simply disappointed in their business practice of selling rooms booked through a 3rd party to a higher bidder.

"Enjoyed but little disappointed."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel was nice and obviously refurbished however they overbooked causing an inconvenience on getting our room and with the construction we did not have hot water. There was a rush on getting our room ready and some issues with cleanliness and we only had one towel and washcloth when we got there. We had to endure a night with cold water. The employees were very nice and apologetic for all the inconvenient issues. I would consider booking a room there when I travel to Philadelphia again.

"Disappointing"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I was disappointed in the presentation of the hotel, very old and tired. Rugs in the room and throughout the hotel were old and stained. Plumbing in the room was old, hot water was hard to come by Thursday morning. As a long time Marriot customer, I am very surprised that this was allowed.

We really enjoyed ourselves here, walking distance to the Barnes Foundation and the Free Library of Philadelphia. Convenient to many excellent restaurants. The staff were accommodating and very friendly. Food service was great as well. We look forward to returning!

"Booking totally fouled up."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
It took me almost an hour tonight to get checked in and only after involving the manager because your company did not send credit card information for my pre paid reservation. I am very tired from traveling and did not enjoy standing at the front desk all that time when I could have been resting. I will never use your website again and will let everyone I know to do the same. Shame on you.

"Hotel Was Excellent!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Hotel Planner company should be shut down! Third part money scammers is illegal! We get to the Hotel to find that as a fully disabled Army Veteran from The Vietnam War we could have stayed at the government rate of 100.00 per night! So you people SHAME ON YOU. I will share this experience and Share on Twitter, Facebook, InstaGram, Snap Chat etc. We were forced to spend close to 900.00 for what would have been 300.00. If you were smart you would make good on your unethical practices of gouging deserving Veterans. I was specifically told parking was included, no extra fee for the service dog we brang! You are ruthless just like all people who conduct themselves sucking money from unsuspecting customers. I have brought this to our lawyer's attention. You will be getting communication shortly about a lawsuit!

Nice room but expensive. Cold shower. Difficult check-in. Helpful, friendly staff. Missing a voucher for food. Very busy place but not crowded. Well lit inside but needed better lighting outside. Check-out very easy.
