Residence Inn – Langhorne, PA

Disclosure: Our stay was compliments of Residence Inn!

One of our summer must do’s this year was Sesame Place. It is about two hours from our house so we decided to save our sanity it would be best to stay at a hotel the night after we visited the park. Driving two hours there, playing for ten hours and then driving two hours home just didn’t sound very fun.

ExteriorI read quite a few reviews of hotels near Sesame Place and decided the Philadelphia/Langhorne Residence Inn by Marriott would work best for us. This high end, newly renovated hotel features spacious suites with separate areas for sleeping, living and working, including a well-equipped kitchen and it is less than 3 minutes from Sesame Place!

SuiteThey also offer a complimentary hot buffet breakfast daily and a free shuttle (to save on parking) to and from Sesame Place!

Suite BedroomEating at Sesame Place is very pricey so I really liked that this Residence Inn offered complimentary grocery shopping.  After a long day at the park, you can head back to your hotel room to cook a home made dinner in the kitchen! The next morning, roll out of bed and stroll down to the delicious hot breakfast near the lobby!ri_ren_lobby06The in room kitchen has a microwave, stove or cook top, dishwasher, dining table and chairs so you can easily prepare meals for the kids and save big time on meals at restaurants. If your not in the mood to cook, you can find something more affordable than Sesame Place at their 24 hour Market.

phllh_phototour44They even have a heated pool and spa, fitness room, outdoor Sports Court and billiards room.

phllh_phototour13 We left Sesame Place right before dinner so we could eat in our room. After dinner the kids got bored in our room so we were able to take advantage of the pool and outdoor basketball court.

phllh_phototour19Once it was time to head to bed I was very grateful for the room set up. Our bed was in a separate nook away form the living area/pull out couch that the kids slept on. So we were able to put them to bed, turn the TV towards us and have some adult time.

phllh_phototour45The Residence Inn by Marriott has over 600 locations across the US and Canada. If you are heading to Sesame Place and could use a place to lay your head the night after call 215-946-6500 to make a reservation!

    We just stayed there, and loved it too! It really is a great place for families. The best part was the shuttle to the park. Or maybe it was the market in the lobby where you can buy a single bottle of wine 🙂 I can’t decide which I liked more! haha

    We’ll definitely be staying there again.

    I have a friend near Philly, plus when I was in Basic Training in NJ we spent a weekend in Philly for the Von Steuben parade. I would love to be able to visit there, and this hotel looks amazing! Of course, I am partial to Marriott properties; my husband used to work for their food distribution company before they shut it down, so we have had a LOT of good experiences with them!

  52. I’m so happy to see this review. My daughter and SIL were just saying because of the long 2 hour drive to get to Sesame Place they would look into places to stay instead of driving home at the end of a long and tiring day. I have to say the pics are so colorful and detailed. I’d consider just staying here for a few days. 🙂
    The rooms look spacious and so colorful. I’m going to pass this on to my daughter as they plan on going to Sesame Place again. Thanks so much for your great review.

  56. Rachel Runyan says

    I was just talking to my sister today about visiting her in Virginia and then take a day and travel the 3 extra hours to Hersheypark in Hershey, PA. While this particular Residence Inn would not be close enough, they do have a Residence Inn within 15 min. Thank you for being so thorough on your review and answering all my questions before I could ask them!
