I'm originally from Colorado so Philly is an incredibly different environment from what I am used to. But Eric at the concierge desk was so helpful and resourceful. Even though there were numerous conventions going on he was still able to skillfully direct me each time I needed help and he was always in the best mood. He was truly... More

Conveniently located to downtown shopping and restaurants. Not a bad walk to Rittenhouse Square and City Hall. If coming to see the liberty bell etc., I would stay at the Sheraton Society Hill. Front deck was super nice and I received a upgrade as a gold Starwood member...............

Stay here for easy access to Philadelphia museums. The staff was excellent. Fitness center is nice. Pool is okay, but was always crowded. The rooms are a bit worn. The housekeeping staff seems to be good; however, it's clear that the hotel's guests have used and abused the rooms, as the furniture is worn, and there are stains on the... More

The hotel is in the perfect location, right in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. The big advantage of staying here is that you have unlimited in and out parking. So you can walk all around downtown Philly, but can get in your car and drive out to go get a cheesesteak or whatever you wish. Besides being a great hotel,... More

The room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable. It is close to the river for walking, art museum, shopping, and fairly close to the Italian market. The check in and out was very speedy. My only complaint was the carpets were slightly dirty!

Stayed here for the weekend, it was okay, prime location, got a good price on Priceline. .., but yeah, nothing special. Elevators always had a line, had to take the stairs. The pool was always warm, both the water and the area. Nice fitness center as well.

Amazingly good price for downtown over a holiday. Hotel is well situated -- close to transportation, easy on easy off the highway and within walking distance of lots of attractions. Check in always seems to have a line, but the staff was efficient and the waits short. Nice lobby with a decent bar. Rooms are tired, but clean and more... More

The Sheriton is on North 17th St. It's a short walk to center city. Suburban Station, and a SEPTA train to the airport is a few blocks due south, but might be difficult with a lot of bags. The rooms were comfortable, and the lobby restaurant had a nice breakfast buffet and was reasonably priced. I am an SPG member,... More

I was In town for AFSP Overnight Out of Darkness Walk. When we arrived at 11:00, it was very busy with the NHL Hockey Draft event in town. My friends were able to get in their rooms right away, but unfortunately, my room was not ready until after 3:30. They did let me check my bags so I could go... More

This hotel is in the middle of Downtown Philly! A walk away from everywhere if you want to pay for parking once. Rooms were very clean and homey! The only thing that hindered this review from getting 5 stars is the check in times. Be aware!! IF YOU ARE NOT A SPG MEMBER YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT FOR A... More
