We use Sheraton for our chess tournaments. Last time I stayed there, someone stole my medicine that was left in the lobby. The manager followed through and even gave me a night free in the hotel and was an expert in handling situations. Rooms are always clean, had great views. This is an example of how a great inn handles... More

The staff was wonderful. They addressed all of our needs, including cabs and information. It's very near the convention center, so great if that's where you're headed. Also near the Reading Street Market. But going anywhere else involves a serious walk and, after dark, probably a taxi

I've stayed here twice and generally have a positive experience. The price is usually better than comparable hotels in the area, which makes up for the few shortcomings. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. Free internet is good. I don't hear the neighbors (either that or there are none). The gym is small but has new equipment and... More

After all other hotels near the convention center were booked, I was surprised to find one right across the street. It's on the west side while most of the other 4 and 5 star hotels are on the east side, so it's more of a walk to the best restaurants. The Four Points is small, the restaurant/bar has limited hours... More

The location is good, particularly for the convention center, Reading Terminal market, etc. The staff is great, at the hotel and the attached breakfast place, and easily the best thing about this hotel. The prices are high for what you get, but low for Philly...and certainly better than the way overpriced and faded Sheraton at 17th and Race.

...not perfect. I am a Starwood Group Member, and entitled to upgraded rooms and amenities at the Starwood properties. But my room was small and there was a huge wet patch on the carpeting next to the bed. It became worse and started to smell, so I complained. I was quickly moved to a new room, and that's when I...
