We were in Erie for a high school reunion and chose this hotel because of its location. Gorgeous lobby, excellent service and very comfortable room with a great view of the bay. It also had the best lighting in a hotel bathroom which is usually a problem. The restaurant on site is expensive but very good. We ate outside to enjoy the view and beautiful weather.

Highly recommend this hotel if you're traveling to Erie.

Room Tip: Ask for a bay view room

Great location, amazing view of Lake Erie, rooms newly renovated and are gorgeous!! Pillows and bed where super comfortable !!! Breakfast was nice but a bit on the pricey side. Great but small indoor swimming pool. Make sure ask for room facing the lake not the marina.

Stayed: August 2014

Location, location, location. Very elegant feel when you enter, with the bar / restaurant in backdrop. We stayed en route to Toronto and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very polite and professional. Parking in the lot adjacent to the hotel is $12. I don't think the hotel operates the lot, but I just didn't expect to pay for parking in Erie. However, as I said, location, location, location.
I would say the room size is standard. TV size seemed smaller than I would have expected, but I don't think people are really interested in TV. I understand the room sizes in the entire hotel are uniform. The bathrooms have a nicer feel.
If you are fortunate to get a water view room, try and get a higher floor. You may hear restaurant guests voices if you are too low.
Visit the Presque Isle State Park, if you have a chance. Its an absolute gem.

Stopped one night on a tour of the Lakes and thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.
The initial check in was a bit frosty and arduous at first as our tour operator it appeared had not set up the correct recharge process. Initially we were denied a room unless we paid, but then after further discussion including "we were not prepared to pay twice" the issue was resolved following a call to the tour operator by the reception manager.
Although our room was inland facing across a roof we could see the marina and were not too disappointed as we were only stopping the one night anyway. The room was well appointed, spotlessly clean and the bed extremely comfortable.
After spending a couple of hours walking around Erie we were of the opinion that the hotel was probably the best and in the best location in Erie close to main attractions such as Bicentennial Tower, museum and the marina.
We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant for dinner and were so glad we did. The food was delicious, the service super friendly and not too expensive either even for a hotel of this quality.
We were told that they were the No 1 Sheraton restaurant and if so it is no wonder and certainly well deserved.
If we had the opportunity to return to Erie we would certainly try and stop at the Sheraton and have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.
Parking for the hotel is in a public multi storey car park a couple of minutes walk from the hotel and is charged at $12 per day. Upon checking out we queried that we had not been charged for the parking on our bill but were told this was being waived. A nice gesture by the manager after the initial frosty reception when we checked in.

This hotel is the best in town. The restaurant in the hotel is very good as well. The property is starting to show some signs of age. The gym is small, but workable. The staff is very friendly. The location is good. I will stay here again when I return for business. A piece of advice, the room position is very important. The walls can be kind of thin and the hotel attracts weddings on the weekends. This means noisy guest. Insist on being at the end of the hall facing the lake. The staff is always good about it.

Room Tip: Insist on end of the hall, facing the lake.

This Hotel is quite nice. Good rooms with views, comfortable and very friendly. This is the second time we stayed here. Our room was "upgraded" it didn't seem like it we had to ask. There seems to often be weddings and events that are VERY loud, the cocktail area can go from quite and relaxing to overwhelming very quick.
Overall for the area, I would stay again.

Room Tip: When booking a room, stay away from the second floor. The reception hall is on this floor and used...
