We recently traveled to Philadelphia (for the fourth) with our grandson and stayed at the Sheraton Society Hill. The location was excellent, especially for viewing the fireworks on Saturday night (launched from a barge in the middle of the Delaware) and other events at Penn's Landing. The Seaport Museum is also right there. We ate at the themed City Tavern right across the street, on the site of the tavern frequented by the signers of the Declaration and the Constitution. (The name of the tavern may be slightly off.)
It is a short walk from the hotel to the various national treasures of Philadelphia, including Independance Hall and the Liberty Bell.
The hotel has a lovely swimming pool--but beware, under the glass roof on a hot day, it is unpleasantly hot. At other times, it is a pleasant respite for children tired from too much sight-seeing.
The concierge lounge is pleasant although I have certainly seen many better breakfast offerings. That is more than offset by the evening appetizer offerings and the accompanying complimentary beverages which include both wine and beer.
On the whole, this is my first choice of hotels for this area. I would especially return if I were in the area with children.
