We stopped in Philly for one night on a road trip through the East Coast of the US, and had a really good stay. The hotel is a little outside the core of the city, but we really enjoyed the walk from the hotel to the downtown core as Philly is a really nice city with lots of great parks. Next time I'm in Philly I'll definitely be returning here.

Thank you for your recent stay with us. We love when we hear that our guests stayed with us during a road trip/adventure. Yes, we are slightly on the edge of Philadelphia by Historic Philadelphia, Penn's Landing area. From the time you check in to check out you can enjoy the area by foot.....great attractions, entertainment and various dining opportunities all within the hotel's location. We look forward to your return visit to us ! #creatingmemories

This is our second time to this hotel. We are SPG members and had points to use so we chose this hotel because of the low points per night. I am so thankful we chose this hotel. It's within walking distance to our interests, bars and restaurants. This visit it also worked out perfectly because we were going to a concert in NJ that was right across the river. We had a short walk to the ferry and were able to take a 5 minute ferry ride to the arena. So convenient.

The hotel itself is nice and clean and the staff are nice and professional. We will definitely stay here whenever we visit Philly.

Sheraton put their decor in a very old building with old amenities and called it a day. The sleeping rooms and bathrooms are just ok, not luxurious. Be warned that this must have been a "courtyard" hotel so many of the rooms are on a noisy, central indoor courtyard. The staff are helpful enough. The food is ok. The location is fine, although I might choose something with less of a nightlife vibe for vacations.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room do not take a room facing onto the courtyard.

Thank you for your comments on your recent stay. We were built and have always been a Sheraton. In April, 2012, we completed a full multi million dollar renovation. With this renovation we decided to leave the brick columns in our lobby as we receive so many great comments on them. We do hope you return to us for your next visit and enjoy all the benefits and features our hotel has to offer. Just imagine our hotel's lobby beautifully decorated during the holiday time.

I stayed here for a conference and it was in a great location. Cab fare from airport was only $30. Close to Old City and all the favorite places to see. Definitely worth joining the reward program - better location of rooms and two water bottles included. Valet parking pricey at $42/day, however has in/out priviledges. We opted to park offsite at the Hyatt regency - just half a block on third and Walnut - at only $19/day. If you choose street parking, watch the meter carefully; parking enforcement is very strict. They are literally waiting for you to laps in time. Worth returning to - very comfy beds. If you're on Platinum level you also have access to Club lounge which includes continental breakfast and social hour. Would stay here again.

tip -- if you're at a conference, they were very booked and could not offer late check out for any of the guests. There were two other conferences there the same week. Expect to check out by noon.

Room Tip: park offsite and split your meals - the portions were large for us.

Thank you for your feedback. We sincerely appreciate all of our guests feedback as this is how we learn from our guests experiences. We apologize we could not give a late check out... when we have a large incoming arrival, we hold to our 12N check out so we can have our rooms ready. We look forward to your next stay with us !

Stayed at the Sheraton for a conference, which was also at the hotel. I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. I had free wifi, which was related to the conference and worked well. The bed was very comfortable.

Three minor complaints: I had repeated difficulty with the access card to my room; parking at the hotel is excessive (I parked in a local lot 2 blocks from the hotel); and you had to use the elevators. The staircases only provide outside access. Being the hotel is only 4 stories (I was on the 2nd floor) I would have been fine taking the stairs.

Other than that, everything was smooth.

Nothing wrong with the hotel building, but I am surprised that there is no free wifi and no free breakfast- both seem to be offered at all hotels I've stayed at, especially at this price! It's a grata location for sightseeing and the staff is very nice. I just wish they would provide the basic amenities that most other hotels provide.

From past experiences and a lot of stays in hotels, I have a rather bad opinion about Sheraton hotels. They are often ruined-down, in desperate need of renovation or even fixing and with poor service.

This is not the case at all with this hotel. Staff from bellman to front desk was very useful and courteous. The atrium lobby is almost spectacular and has large tables to work and many seating options. It even had apples to take !

I got upgraded, as a SPG Gold member, to a very nice room. Everything was in perfect order and well maintained. The working desk was very good. So was the wifi. The bed was comfortable.

The hotel is very well located at the center of Old City and at a short walking distance of many restaurants.

I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel and really consider this as a Sheraton well-done. I hope they would be more of these.
