We were traveling from upstate NY to Pennsylvania with our 2 dogs the evening of 12/21 when we started experiencing bad winter weather. We quickly looked up pet-friendly properties in Erie and decided to try the Sheraton Erie Bayfront. We were not disappointed. We checked in around 10 pm and we were given a bayfront room upgrade upon request. The hotel was decorated very nicely for the holidays and after getting our dogs and stuff into the room, we went down to the bar area for a cocktail and appetizers. While there were few people around, the atmosphere was relaxing and inviting, which was needed given the tense driving conditions we had just traveled in. The corn/crab chowder and pizza were excellent and hit the spot! The fireplace and decor, combined with the snowstorm outside, made it feel like a nice, quick holiday getaway. The reception and bar staff were very friendly. The only issue was that when we called the property, we were not informed that there would be a $50 pet fee - this is probably because Sheraton uses a centralized reservations department - you think you're calling the actual property but you're not. However, this issue was quickly resolved by the manager upon check-out in the morning - the pet fee was waived when I explained the miscommunication with the central reservations department. We appreciated this as the fee would've been ~50% the room rate, which we think is extremely high. Thankfully, the manager was very understanding. And all the staff was so friendly that morning as we were leaving. People were giving us weather conditions of the direction we were traveling and the restaurant staff sent us on our way with complimentary tea and hot chocolate. Everyone was just so personable and friendly, wishing us a safe trip and happy holidays. It turned out that the manager grew up in the area where we currently live - small world! In any event, we would highly recommend this property.
