We are excited to start our new year in Philadelphia."
The five-story Philadelphia South hotel has been thoughtfully planned so guests can stay connected, productive and comfortable while away from home and the office. The hotel features a fitness center and guest laundry, meeting space to accommodate functions of up to 100 people, The Bistro - Eat. Drink.

"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.
