Standard rooms at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown are 208-384 square feet (19-35 square meters). This room number 1491 included a king bed, sitting area with ottoman and small side table, spacious desk with ergonomic chair, two night stands with drawers and television stand which held the coffee bar and three drawers.
Light is always an issue in hotel rooms since their is no ceiling light fixture. But four lamps (two on the nightstands, one floor lamp and one desk lamp) gave ample light to the room in the evening. During the day the large window provided added light. The spacious desk is an attraction for those having to work in the room or if one has to enjoy some in-room dining.
The bed itself was fitted with a firm mattress and soft bedding. Black-and-white photographic art decorated the walls next to the bathroom and above the desk. In all the room was clean, comfortable and served the purpose for my three-night visit to Philadelphia.
