O.K., maybe if you want a flat screen t.v, you are going to be disappointed.
Other than that, every blessed thing was just fine and totally painless.
They even had bottled water, sodas in cans, fruit and PHILLY Pretzels at check-in with people to help GIVE them away if you wanted. When has that happened last?.....O.K. maybe those super caloric DoubleTree cookies that spoil your appetite, but Soft Pretzels - Philly's #2 gift to America? Great idea.
The room was clean and spacious. The furniture recently re-upholstered (it seemed) in a tasteful way. There just was nothing to complain about. And yes, the parking was more than 1/2 the cost of the room, BUT YOU CAN PARK across the street for much less! Big deal. There are plenty of places to park that cost less. Please do not complain; my guess is that the parking is a concession and the prices are set by the concessionaire and not the hotel.
The hotel is not really in the center, but it is not more than a five minute walk to the "Center" which is three blocks away -to Market street.
Be aware that Sheraton seems to sell a block of rooms here to Priceline, so if that is in your travel radar, use it. You'll save a bundle and you can use that money to pay for the parking - and complain about it- if you want to. Or you can buy lots of cheese steaks!!
