Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill Hotel
Ranked #33 of 89 Hotels in Philadelphia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Great hotel where you can park your car (for $35/night....yikes!) and walk around to some great bars and restaurants. The waterfront area is across the bridge and an easy walk as well. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful with some suggestions of what to do (but I did verify with Trip Advisor on the restaurant choices offered up and they did agree) Cuba Libre was a nice locale Cuban restaurant/bar with some amazing apps and original drinks. Spasso's for dinner was good Italian food. Too many other places to try in the one night there, but would go back.

The hotel itself was clean and comfortable. Only drawback is the maze-like layout of the floor plan. Took a few trips back and forth to the room and lobby to feel like I knew exactly where my room was. Not enough of a problem that I would not return, just an observation, especially to a family with kids who go out in the hotel by themselves.

We only stayed one night at this hotel but it was beautiful and clean. The queen size beds were a plus as many hotels offer two doubles. While a little pricey, it's typical of a city. We were able to book a family offer which included snacks for the kids, a few in-room movie, and late check-out at 4pm, which was especially helpful since we could keep our luggage in the room while we did our sightseeing. The hotel is within walking distance of Independence Hall, Reading Terminal Market, and the waterfront.

I stayed 2 nights. There was no free wifi in the room. No free breakfast. No fridge or microwave. One restaraunt that was overpriced. Room service also too high. Asked for late checkout. Told to call in the morning. Called in the morn and was told that they couldnot grant the late checkout and to call later. Business trip i did not enjoy at all.

We really liked the hotel, they did an excellent job with their recent renovation. The lobby has plenty of comfortable seating areas and trendy decor. The room itself was perfect, good size and nice bathroom as well. The restaurant prices I thought were on the high side. $25 for a breakfast buffet is outrageous. We were in there around 9am, and the buffet was not even set up yet. I decided on the omelet, which was mediocre at best. Plenty of restaurant within walking distance, which may save you some money. Nadia at the front desk was excellent, and all the staff I had interactions with were all very professional and friendly, housekeepers, doormen, bartenders etc. I found the location of the hotel to work quite nicely, being right off the highway, easy drive down the highway to Phillies games, and they have rental car at their concierge desk! So convenient! Will definitely stay here again if my travels bring me back to Philly! :)

The location is definitely the selling point for this hotel. It is within walking distance to so many great restaurants and must see spots. The staff was friendly and nice and the rooms were great. I happened to get a room across from the entrance to the pool which made it a bit noisy for me with kids who were overly enjoyed entering and exiting the pool area right outside my door. The room itself was furnished quite nicely and i was impressed. No free wi-fi though... The downstairs lobby area was also wide open and roomy and had lots of seating areas to congregate and relax. Very nice hotel.

Stayed for 4 nights. Hotel is at great location, walkable distance from historic city, South street and Delaware river shore...
Room big and comfortable, good linen and pillows and blanckets, with daily newspaper, bottles of water and coffee maker at room. Bad side is that there is not free wi-fi internet connection.
Room and bathroom very clean... liked the fitness center and the pool (no warm water), but the jacuzzi was in maintenance.
Staff friendly, I would come back.

The location of this hotel is absolutely great. You are within walking distance of many great restaturants as well as night life. It's within easy walking distance of Freedom Hall and the old city center. Although the staff were very friendly, service was pretty spotty. Rooms are clean and reasonably comfortable. The weekend night we stayed, there were plenty of loud drunk people wandering the hallways about 2 in the morning, which was a bit annoying.
