Hotel is an ideal location if you are touring UPenn - just 4 blocks to the start of campus info sessions and tours. The look is a bit dated but the hotel is clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the staff very nice. They seem to work hard at keeping it fresh as they were re-wallpapering the lobby when... More

When they brought a rollaway bed to the room, I immediately saw that the sheets were dirty, and called downstairs for a new one. However, before the new cot was brought up, I turned down the covers (the blanket was like an old army/camping blanket -- -- that itchy kind) to see the extent of the filth, and a roach... More

We stayed at this hotel for the BlackStar Film Festival. I will admit it wasn't what I expected. It was a good hotel but not an exceptional hotel. Plus, as a Starwood Preferred member, there were no perks: free parking, free wifi. I was given access to the VIP lounge, which I didn't have time to visit. Overall, it was... More

The hotel was clean and modern was well appointed. We checked in at around 10 pm on a Saturday night having come from our wedding reception and taking the Amtrak on to NYC the next morning. Though there was nothing wrong with the hotel, there was a strange vibe to the place. Several groups of young women seemed to be... More

I live in NY, my friend lives in DC, and we were going to a concert in Philly. Overall this was a really nice stay. It's right by the trolley and in a lovely neighborhood. The room felt spacious... I also *love* Sheraton beds - these were no exception. And we experienced great service from Ron (who helped us find... More

I love staying at the Sheraton University City! I've come to know the staff by name because they make me feel like I'm family. When I enter the hotel, Chris (not sure of last name) at the front desk is always welcoming. I had the pleasure to meet Mr. Kevin Cushing. Mr. Cushing was instrumental in ensuring that my stay...

Had a brief stay in town for a conference, and the hotel was in a great location to launch walks downtown and to the Museum district. Clean, very comfortable beds, and the service was good. Many thanks to Chef Marlene for a delicious cheese omelette for breakfast on the club level.

Members of our work team stayed at this hotel for one night - and it was a fine stay. We were there for about 10 hours, total. In and out. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The sleep was comfortable and quiet. I was in a room at the end of the hallway, so it was super quiet. In... More

Stayed at the Sheraton University City for a conference held at the hotel room 1708. Our rate was $155 for a king/double room. Club level rooms (floors 18/19/20) were $185. Access to Club level is by Key card only. I am a Starwood Preferred Member so I was eligible to stay on the Preferred Guest levels which are floors 16/17.... More

The Sheraton in University City has great location. Nice area with good walks. Close to some museums and a cab ride to old town Philly. Hotel is clean, though the entry furniture is a little tired. Remodeling is on-going. It is very college orientated as it is next to Drexel and Penn. Staff was fun and get up to the... More
