Stayed here for a business trip and wouldn't recommend it if you didn't have to stay here. Found it old and badly in need of a renovation. The service didn't help either as they were quite impersonal and seemed to be just going through the motions ( except a few of the young door attendants). Wifi is chargeable and meals... More

This hotel is fairly standard for a Sheraton. Check-in was very lengthy and once checked in, they did not have a room for me. They were to call me when the room was ready but they never did. The elevators are really fast and available. The room was clean and even contained a few free bottles of water. This hotel... More

I'm late with this review so some of it may not apply, but here goes. I stayed here in July. It started out kind of disappointing, as the condition of the sleeper sofa in our room was grossly...well, just gross. The cushions were stained and upon lifting them there were cookie crumbs as if someone's kids had had a party... More

Stayed here 4 days for business. Check was quick and easy. Room as large and clean. Bathroom was clean with good hot water and lots of high end toiletries. Food at the bar was surpassing good for a hotel and the bartenders were attentive. The business area with computers was in the lobby near the bar so there was lots... More

Very nice hotels, spacious and comfortable. The staff were very accommodating and the room was clean. The only issue was that the shower didn't seem to turn to hot and there was no plug in the bath tub. The lighting was also quite dim in the room as the only light sources were table lamps. Ceiling lights would have been... More

I stayed there 1 night in July 2014 - with my wife and 2 kids. We did not spend a lot of time there - it was just a place to crash while we spent 1-2 days in Philadelphia. Overall, we liked the hotel. In years past, we would stay at the Westin, which is about 1 mile down the... More

My friend and I book the Sheraton Hotel for one night while visiting Philadelphia. We thought it would be the perfect place to stay. We were very disappointed with the service (compared to the price you pay)!! First of all, you pay hundreds of dollars for ONE night and you don't even get complementary WIFI. How much does a room...

The hotel is nice, check in was a nightmare, we got there at 3:20 and it took 30 minutes to check in. Within five minutes of getting in line the number of people doubled, so we got there just in time or it could have taken us over an hour, I would suggest checking in at 2:30 to get a... More

Staying here for a few days due to need at a nearby hospital. I have used this hotel in the past for the same reason. Though some construction is underway it has not been a problem. The staff has been helpful and responsive, and the club room once again is a real plus. Our room has been clean and quiet.... More
