An award-winning restoration has recaptured the grandeur of our building’s 1926 origins, but with a nod to the modern age. This one-time City Hall Annex — now on the National Register of Historic Places — is all about style and elegance with coffered plaster details, stunning bronze work, and striking marble finishes, plus an interior design that melds the classic with the contemporary. We feature two stunning 3,000 sq ft Ballrooms rooms at our Philadelphia downtown hotel that are ideal for weddings and receptions. Read less

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 that night right in the hotel- and it was perfect! I would recommend this venue to anyone who dreams of a center city wedding.

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 bartenders and catering staff were wonderful! I heard sooo many comments from my guests about how great the bartenders were! The bartenders were even good sports when some members of the bridal party wanted to involve the bartenders in their “entrance” skit! I would definitely recommend that you look into hosting your event here!

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 reception in the Junipers Ballroom. The food is outstanding- the chef came out to make sure everyone was enjoying their meals. The bartenders were fast and efficient and hilarious to boot!

The Courtyard went above and beyond all expectations I had for a wedding vendor. I have not one single complain or suggestion on how our wedding day could have been any better. It was absolutely perfect.

When choosing a wedding venue in Philadelphia, make sure you check out the Marriott Courtyard Downtown on 21 Juniper Street! Honestly, my wedding was everything I dreamed it could be and more! The staff is outstanding, especially Dana, the wedding planner and Darrin, the even host. Dana was so amazing to work with. She is so flexible and really cares about creating your vision. I never worried about things getting done because I knew Dana had everything under control which is so important when there are so many details to worry about the day of. I really just enjoyed the evening! Darrin was also outstanding. His attention to detail amazed me, attending to us all night- even making sure that all of our belongings got back to our room at the end of the night (even wrapped our cake, collected all of our centerpieces and kept our cards safe).
We were able to hold an after party at their downstairs bar which was a perfect way to end the night.They also offer a buffet breakfast in the am which was convenient for our out of town guests and it felt like we having another party in the am!
For the location and price, I don't think you can find a better venue to host your Philadelphia wedding reception. Everyone said it was the best wedding they have ever been to: great food, awesome location and exceptional service!!

Just had my daughter, Kelly Mcstravock & A.J Weckenman wedding on 7/13/13.
Ceremony and reception there. What a great job everyone there did. The event planners Kellie and Angie ( great job), the chef, served the newlyweds himself and personally came to ask how our meals were ( they could not have been more delicious), the wait staff and bartenders thumbs up to all of you.
The bridal suite wonderful for getting ready. There was enough room for
hair, makeup, dressing, eating and celebrating.
Check in was very efficient.
I would highly recommend and hope to stay again to tour more of our
Lovely city.
Again thank you all for your attentiveness and professionalism and caring.
