“Relaxing after a day of business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

After a full day of negotiations, close of business... I checked into The Sheraton Society Hill and suddenly felt relaxed. I was upgraded to the Club Level and was presently surprised. Complimentary wine and beer, small appetizers and a nice bright room(Monday-Thursday Comp beer and wine). The valet were excellent. Front desk was pleasant. My room was very clean, the amenities decent. You are within walking distance to Society Hill and Old City. The buildings are low, kept nice and many are very historical. Cobblestone streets too. Some quaint restaurants. You are in your own historical world.
So if you want to stay out of the hustle and bustle go here.

We have stayed at the Society Hill Sheraton for several years when we have stayed in Philadelphia. Our experience has always been excellent. The employees have always been helpful and friendly. The location, facility, personnel, and rooms make it our first choice. Hard to go wrong.

Nice hotel. The room was clean and modern. The staff was friendly. We didn't have issues with noise. We were in a club level room and the extras (water, juice, beer, wine, soda, hot snacks, fruit, breakfast, etc...) were a really nice amenity. But, be warned that they are only open for a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the evening. We walked to all the tourist attractions, but took a cab to dinner. The valet's were very helpful and friendly. Valet Parking was expensive, but a necessary evil. They let us keep our car there a few hours after checkout which was a nice bonus.

We wanted to stay at the Omni but they were completely booked so we ended up at the Sheraton Society Hill and we are so happy we stayed here. The staff is friendly, the club level room we had was was modern, clean and super quiet, the lobby is a great place to hang out, the location is fantastic within walking distance to Independence Park, South Street, nearby bars, restaurants and the pier.

An extra special thanks to the Sheraton Society Hill for checking us in super early. My daughters (10 & 12) and I arrived at the hotel at 6am and after a long, sleepless 5 hour red eye flight, we were exhausted and ready for a nap. I wasn't sure if they would check us in so early but without hesitation, the front desk person checked us right in knowing my girls were dead tired. I even offered to pay extra for the early check-in but he said it wasn't a problem. Thank heavens because we ended up enjoying a nap and waking up well rested and relaxed before touring all the beautiful sites of Philadelphia. I can't thank them enough!

Another perk of the hotel's location is that the hotel is stop #19 on the hop on/hop off tour so the trolley tour we took dropped us off right in front of the hotel. After a long day of touring it was a really nice treat.

I highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again :)

I do not know when they updated but the hotel did a fabulous job. The lobby looked lovely. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We got a package which included a club room with amenities we coud really use: water, fruit, coffee and snacks.

We booked a last minute getaway at this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The location is great. The hotel is located close to many of the historical sites in Philadelphia, as well as Penn's Landing and Society Hill. Top notch restaurants are also located near the hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable and rates were commensurate. The staff was professional and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

I am a regular at this Sheraton for several reasons. I annually go to Philly for a check-up with my oncologist. The hotel is within walking distance of Wills Eye Hospital which is why I first chose it. Parking in Philadelphia is a nightmare and an expensive one, at that. Society Hill is a quick shuttle ride from the airport which means I don't have to rent a car! :-) It is also right in the historical district; the National Constitution Museum, Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, restaurants etc. are all within easy reach. I have spent up to 5 days there, by myself, and always felt secure. The hotel is quiet and private and the staff has has always been
accomodating. Because you are quickly within the historic district, once you leave the hotel, there are National Park Rangers everywhere - which helps me feel safer.Rooms have been remodeled within the past 4 years and are clean, comfortable, and stylish. I can't imagine staying anywhere else, when in Philly.
