I'm used to Sheraton's in the US, which honestly are not my first choice of hotels, so when I arrived at the Sheraton in Porto, I was very pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was. This is a top quality hotel- very modern, very clean with all the amenities. The best part (and I know this sounds silly), but they had amazing glass elevators which gave you a very cool view of the hotel as you were going up. From an architecture standpoint, this hotel was very cool.
Rooms: Very clean. We were upgraded to a suite, so the room was huge. The bathroom was awesome- huge soaking tub and a separate shower (water pressure was okay). The beds were very firm, not what I like, but standard for Europe hotels.
Location: The location is less than ideal. It's a far walk from the center of town, the water and any tourist attractions. I was disappointed that this hotel was so far off the beaten path- at least for leisure travel. Not sure if this is a good location for business. You definitely need to take cabs to any place you want to be.
Service: The staff was very attentive, very knowledgable and always helpful. We were always greeted with a smile.
Overall, very good hotel. I would recommend this hotel, but you have to be ready to take cabs everywhere based on the location.
