My first trip to Philadelphia so I really didn't know where I would be staying but could not have been at a better hotel. I like to run on my trips so this place was perfect. Right out the door and within seconds I can start my run at Logan Square. Heading out I run past the Barnes, Rodin, Museum of Art and then hit the river system. I headed out for a 4.5 mile run out and could have kept going. At the end of the run it was 9 miles along a beautiful trail system. The hotel is easily reached from the airport. The $8 fare on the Septa train drops you off on JFK and 17th. Walk three blocks and you are at the Sheraton. I pack light when I travel so this was perfect. When getting a room , try to get one facing north, and on the west side of the building. As high as possible. The church on the west side will block your view. On the east side has a building blocking your view till about the 20th floor.
The hotel lobby is clean and quite smart. For an older hotel it is quite nice, if you compare it to a new hotel you might think it isn't up to standard but I enjoyed staying here.
I would stay here again, the other hotels in the area you might consider is the Four Seasons, Embassy suites or Watermark. If want to explore more of the downtown core and don't run or like museums then you might want to stay near the convention center, the Marriot being one choice. The Reading Terminal Market is a great place to be close to, and the food choices in the Rittenhouse square(area) is great.
