The outdoor pool was the best feature at this Sheraton. The elevators were the worst! What made the elevators even worse was that the housekeeping staff had to share elevators with the guests, and the housekeeping staff had to haul big carts around. There were very nice meeting rooms downstairs, a large laundry facility, and a fantastic 24-hour restaurant across... More

We chose this hotel because of its convenient location to UPenn & Drexel University. We had college visits scheduled at both locations. We requested an early check and were assured it would not be a problem. When we arrived, we were told out room should be ready about 3 hours later than we were promised. Not a huge deal as... More

Did we get the worst room in the place? There's obviously been water leaking in the ceiling. The ceiling is cracked and dis colored in several places in the room and bathroom. One 3 foot long gash in the room is especially ugly with little or no effort to improve its appearance. Bare boards are screwed into the frame above... More

Super convenient to UPenn and Drexel campuses. Made moving in our daughter into school a breeze. Excellent room attendant staff. Everything went without a hitch. The Asian (Chinese) restaurant in the lobby is also excellent. Definitely try the dim sum.

This was our first ever family reunion so we were more than excited. Being the President of the committee, I wanted this event to be extra special...and it was. The entire process from start to finish was impeccable. Our Event Manager, Latrina Ferguson, was professional and knowledgeable. She assisted with planning a great evening and was always available for me... More

We were generously upgraded to a club level room and thoroughly enjoyed the club room. It was a decent breakfast with one hot food item every morning. We were never around for the afternoon reception but it is nice that it is made available. We especially appreciated the waters that were available to us. After full days of moving our... More

We used the Sheraton University City for a National Convention. The meeting room layout was truly fantastic for our needs. Everything was within a few seconds walk - main session rooms, breakouts, board rooms, and staging rooms. We had tons of space to conduct our various sessions. Most of the things we had discussed with the hotel in advance were... More

I visited on 8/17 for one night of business meetings. My check I was fast and efficient. They also provided directions to the parking garage. The room seem newly renovated with a very comfortable bed. Check out was a breeze and I will certainly return.
