The largest hotel in the state, and then some, the thrice-incarnated Philadelphia Marriott is high volume -- and surprisingly high service. Marriott opened the biggest hotel in Pennsylvania in January 1995, linked by an elevated covered walkway to the Reading Terminal Shed of the convention center -- and it is scheduled for a $45-million renovation in 2009. In 1999, Marriott converted the historic 1926 City Hall Annex across 13th Street at Filbert into a 500-room Courtyard by Marriott, the largest in the Courtyard division, and, in 2004, Courtyard gained neighbor Residence Inn, which added 269 suites to the stew -- plus a state-of-the-art fitness center. So all together, you have your choice of more than 2,100 rooms, three fitness centers, and 10 restaurants and lounges -- all linked with one another and with the convention center. Guests at any of the locations would be smart to join Marriott's rewards program, which offers automatic discounts to members
