I stayed here for one week for work and it was a very comfortable stay. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the view was great. Breakfast wasn't included with my room but I had free coffee and/or tea delivered to my room each morning. The lobby is grand, the staff is friendly, there is a bank to exchange money and an ATM in the lobby. It was a great base to be ready for work each day.
There are a few things though that I want to point out. In the bathroom, I don't know what was going on with the water situation but every time I showered, the floor flooded. At first I thought the water pressure was so strong, it was pushing out the curtain (because the water pressure was wonderfully strong). But that wasn't the issue. I didn't report it and never figured out what was going on. Also, the room doesn't come with an iron, which I was disappointed about because traveling that far, some of my work clothes was wrinkled. Internet access was intermittent, at best, but mostly was non-existent so that was very frustrating.
This hotel is very secluded, which is great for safety reasons. It's in a guarded compound situated away from anything else. But it's not easy to walk to anything and I was stuck eating dinner at the hotel each night. Also, staying in this hotel doesn't give you a sense of where you are. It mostly meets Western standards for a hotel and you could be in any city in the world. I saw other hotels where my colleagues stayed in Addis and the Sheraton far exceeds the other hotels that I saw. The Sheraton is great if you really don't want to give up any Western luxuries and want to be sheltered and secluded from the rest of the city.
