“Beautiful View from Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2008

We decided to go to Erie for an overnight trip in August of 2008. We decided on the Sheraton Bayfront Erie because it was a new hotel with water views. I reserved through the hotel online because I found an online special ($30 cheaper than other sites) I chose a standard/king with "waterview" and the only available said "handicap accessible". When we checked in the clerk asked if we needed the accessible room and I said no we didn't it was the only available online. He said he gave us another room that was not accessible but would be the same. I was also asked if I would be parking in the garage and that $8 would be charged to my room because it was a public garage. We checked into our room and found it to be "waterview" but of the marina at the back of the hotel. My husband insisted it was "waterview" and we didn't reserved waterfront view - luckily I called down and asked - Yes, we were in "limited view" and our room was changed immediately. Waterview room was beautiful with a great view of the Biccentenial towers and convention center. The bed was very comfortable and nice flat screen tv. Bathroom is large with a double stand in shower (no tub). The pool was pretty small with a hot tub at one end and a sun deck around the outside. Fitness room had nice new equipment. We could walk to the towers, a few restaurants and mini golf. Overall it was great and we got it for a good price.

We stayed at the Sheraton Erie Bayfront on July 26th. The rooms have a very nice view. The staff was friendly and polite. The only real down side was that there is no parking, except for the Sheraton's garage, which they charge you an $8 fee to use.

  • Liked — nice view, comfy beds
  • Disliked — price for parking at the hotel

What a great view from the room. It overlooked the bay and it was nice and quiet. The surrounding area wasn't all that nice, but what can you do, its near a convention center. The rooms were spacious, and clean. We traveled with a dog and they had arrangements for the dog as well. A mat, bowls and a dog bed. Nice touch. If we were to to back to Erie, we'd stay there again.
