Excellent breakfast and service by Chef Michael and by Yaseena! They both made my family feel right at home and could not have been nicer. Great location, clean rooms, awesome staff - what more could you want!

My wife and I had to stay here as our son was getting surgery at CHOP. The staff in particular Davida, and Sam at the front desk were amazing, caring, and empathetic. Our son's surgery ran into some complications and our 3 day ended up being 9 days. Davida, and Sam worked with us despite a full hotel to keep...

Hotel room was great. Very clean and comfortable. Centrally located. Go visit the egg station with Chef Michael in the club lounge. I genuinely looked forward to breakfast in the mornings because of it.

Excellent breakfast service by Chef Michael. The egg station is the highlight of the breakfast. Wonderful location to stay if you are visiting Drexel university or UPenn. The club rooms include complimentary breakfast. This room has an excellent view of Philadelphia.

Finally got reserved in this hotel for my son's school activities. It's ridiculously expensive for these "busy" days while quite reasonable for the others. Room is legacy but clean and,nice. On the other hand, lifts are slow, crowded and hopeless when you're in a hurry. Front desk staffs ok to deal with while the cleaning crew is hectic. Overall it's...

My friend is on the heart transplant list at Penn and we were there for one of her regular check ups (like anything about a heart transplant is regular). We prefer to drive up the night before so she can be well rested for her early morning doctors visits. This time I got a suite at the Sheraton ... thinking...

Staff was super helpful and friendly, we ended up upgrading to a suite because of our family needs. The access this upgrade allowed us to the lounge was phenomenal. Breakfast was amazing, Chef Michael on the weekend was amazing!!! Best omelet. We were so happy with the kindness and extra help offered at each turn. Thank you!!!
