Stayed here for a work trip. Front desk was very helpful Room was nice and big and room service was great and fast. Hotel lobby is very nice and the concierge service is a great bonus. They have taxi's waiting to take you any where.

We stayed at the Sheraton in two separate dates recently. 3 nights the first visit and 9 the second. In both situations we dealt with a friendly and helpful staff. Got to mention Avril Atherton. She was always helpful in an attentive and caring manner. Erick from the concierge and Stella from the restaurant were also very nice. Nice rooms,... More

Traveled to Philidelphia to acompany my wife on a business trip. We stayed at this hotel because this is where the conference was. The room was clean and comfortable. The location is nice and within easy walking distance of many of the attractions in the historic center. Also close proximatty to the museums.

I was disappointed with my recent four night stay in the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown. After being told on checkin I would have complimentary wifi, I was then charged for it on check out! It is hard to believe a hotel group as big as the Sheraton group would charge guests for wifi. I was part of the AACR cancer conference... More

I came full circle with the Sheraton Downtown Philly at 16-17th and Race street. I stayed there 21 years ago for three weeks and periodically since when the property was a Wyndham (Franklin Plaza) because my company was headquartered at One Franklin Plaza (FP). Today the company has moved to the Philly Navy Yard and the hotel has been updated... More

The room was great and the service in the dining room the best, On the day we arrived they had a lovely happy hour food selection and drinks, was a good way to start our trip and the service... More

I chose it by he price. Less expensive than the others in the area and with the references that the Sheraton brand gives you. Super satisfied. Good room, wide. Huge beds. Felt like at home. I wanna add that people in the hotel were very friendly and helpful and specially in the restaurant for breakfast: I am a tiny woman... More

The beds were a bit too firm for my taste-- but the pillows were nice and fluffy.But be warned- If you go to the pool prepare to be disappointed--... More

After reading some of the mixed reviews I was worried. I found myself looking for problems but was unable to find any. The staff were very friendly, cheerful, and helpful, the room was clean and exactly what I expected. At first I thought it was odd that there wasn't any complimentary shampoo but I always bring my own anyway. The... More

Mary Mastrobuoni was extremely helpful at the concierge desk. She went above and beyond to book me a last minute train ticket for a fair price and let me know exactly how to get there. Phenomenal service! Only thing I wish is that the hotel offered room service for food 24/7. I was pretty bummed when I found out they... More
