There are basically 3 types of Sheratons:
1- Old and not renovated
2- Old but renovated
3- New style Sheratons.
This is a new style Sheraton about 4 years old. These new Sheratons are basically glorified upper level motels, and they compete with Marriott Courtyard's and the like. The positive is that they are relatively new and consistent accross properties. If you are on leisure travel then they are ok because you can ignore the negatives, as you are probably getting a good deal on the hotel. If on business...there are shortcommmings.
1- Friendly front desk
2- Friendly bar/restaurant staff
3- New rooms with large tv's and stand up showers, vs the old tubs
4- Complementary coffee and tee in the lobby in the morning
5- Good location next to a large shopping area (new)
6- VERY comfortable beds and pillows (like all Sheratons!)
1- Club not open on Sundays, and *very* minimal service/food items on weekdays, no water
2- Walls paper thin, expect to hear *everything* next door
3- Excersize room is small, and when we were there, no towels
4- No A/C in the elevator, which is a MAJOR problem in Florida where it is routinely high 90's. This is just plain inexplicable. It is close to 100 degrees in that elevator all the time
5- Speaking of A/C's, motel style A/C's in the room, which are noisy.
Overall the stay was ok, but I am not a huge fan of these new style Sheratons.
