"Not only is this the first hotel at The Navy Yard, this is the first property in the Select Service & Extended Stay line of Marriott hotels to open in 2014. We are excited to start our new year in Philadelphia."

"We are thrilled to offer an additional meeting and hotel option for business and leisure travelers to the greater Philadelphia region, as well as dining and meeting space options for our business neighbors," said Derek Beckman, general manager, Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia South at The Navy Yard. "More than 70 percent of the businesses in The Navy Yard are start-ups or are new to the Philadelphia community and we can't be more pleased to be a part of this growing community."

Each room features plush bedding, a functional work space, spacious bathrooms, a separate seating area and complimentary in-room high-speed Internet.
