I had a great time at this hotel and feel inclined to write a long review. I stayed once to visit people in the area, and then decided to come back again multiple times as an escape from a Hurricane Sandy power outage.
This brand new Sheraton is similar to some of the new ones that have a very "four star feel" to them. The rooms are average size, but very nicely designed and appointed. The studio suite is definitely the better value. If it's not much more, and within your budget, the studio suite will give you a large well designed space that is extremely comfortable and has a HUGE bathroom with double sinks. The hotel layout can require a lot of walking, and if walking is an issue request a room near the elevator. There were some minor design glitches. The studio suite BR had no soap dish or any place to put anything in the stall. The regular room shower stalls were half open and water tended to spill. The lobby lets in a lot of cold air which tends to make people at one side of the bar cold. These are all minor glitches which I'm sure will be addressed in time and shouldn't discourage anybody from staying there.
The van service to the mall was very convenient and reliable. I had quite some time to meet staff, and they were all great. The lobby has a very comfortable computer lab with great monitors and convenient printing.
The restaurant requires special mention. It's not your typical hotel restaurant. It's actually a satellite location of a great Philly restaurant. The Italian food was great, and this is the type of place you could bring a client. It often gets booked and is patronized by local residents. It's not budget priced, but you feel like you're paying for high quality rather than just hotel markup. The portions were also large.The price was very reasonable for high quality food in a hotel. The bar was great too, with amazing bar staff. The bar manager is very passionate about his work and an awesome person. I would patronize the restaurant and bar if I lived in the area.
This is a great new property with beautiful rooms, a great staff, a great bar, and and a top notch Italian restaurant. It is convenient to KOP Mall, and several nearby universities. I look forward to returning to The Sheraton Valley Forge.
