As a very active Penn alumnus, I am on campus about 6 times a year for a night or two per visit. Since I usually am alone, I stay at the Sheraton which is less expensive than the Hilton's Inn at Penn which I choose when my wife is with me. I arrived there on Friday at about 11:30 AM... More

We visited Philadelphia to meet with UPenn about the upcoming year for our daughter. The hotel is near the 30th St Amtrak station and is located on campus and near to everything we needed to do. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The restaurant in the lobby has excellent Chinese food and service. The room was comfortable and clean.

Stayed in a room with club room access for not a huge difference in price. Club room can be accessed 24 hrs a day and was always amply stocked with sodas, water, yogurt, and fresh fruits. There was an espresso and cappuccino maker available to use. The breakfast was always delicious and fresh with excellent service staff who were always... More

I stay here when we visit our daughter at Penn. Vinny is great! He is helpful and accommodating. As I said in previous review, this Sheraton has the nicest managers...the staff is consistent and Vinny and Richard have been there for years which is a good sign of stability in a hotel. The concierge floor has a lounge which overlooks... More

I liked this hotel very much, and I would return again if I am in Philadelphia. The staff at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the wifi worked well. I liked the choice to earn a $5 voucher by foregoing a day of housekeeping.

I was so impressed with the staff, especially one of the receptionist, Ron. He was so friendly and helpful to us, small town folk, and guided us to the correct buses to explore the city. When we needed something in our room he was very accommodating.

We did not stay in the hotel, but our local University hosts an annual banquet at the Sheraton University City location. The folks on this team are true professionals! In a time of staff changes on our side, the Sheraton contacts knew exactly how to support us and answer our questions. The event was flawlessly executed. In addition to the... More
