I recently stayed 9 nights in this hotel for business. The first couple nights there was a dog in one of the rooms and the thing barked all night. The room they had the dog in was close to the elevator instead at the end of the halway so everytime someone got out of the elevator the dog barked....it kepts me up for a couple nights. Also I do the "going green" deal where if you put the sign on the door they dont clean your room and you get a $5 coupon instead. Well the first night i didnt get the coupon under my door the 2nd night i didnt either. So I went to the front desk and asked them if they handled things differently than the other Hotels. The young lady said I should get the coupon under the door like I thought. Everynight went by I stayed 9 nights and i never got 1 coupon under the door and i went down to the front desk 5 times and asked where the confusion was. Also they charge you to park there I think it's silly they charge you $7per night to park when you're already paying $100 a night to stay with them. Why do they have to nickle and dime you?

Rated 1 out of 5 by maggie2193 The shuttle experience.
Yesterday and last September, I had to wait 40 minutes to return from the airport. Each time the shuttle was full when it reached my pickup area. When you have another hour and a half drive to get home, this becomes very disturbing. You need to get people's return times to know when one shuttle will not be enough to service people returning. I will probably not return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gfmems The mattress and parking cost
The mattress on the bed in my room was very lumpy and lopsided. It either needs a new mattress in that room, or at least the mattress needs to be flipped and evened out. It was very UNCOMFORTABLE!
The last two times I have stayed at this hotel before leaving on a vacation, I have not had to pay parking fees because of my gold Elite status. This time, the person working the desk didn't know anything about it and insisted on charging parking fees or gave me the option of canceling that reservation and trying for a "park and fly" reservation...for which I could not use points and might not get a reservation. STAFF NEEDS TO BE MORE KNOWLEDGABLE!

First of all the room was not clean, and the mattress was broke and out of service. Make no excuse b/c It is really hard to miss that when you change your bed cover.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ron56 Hotel needs some work.
Sorry to have to write this review. Was expecting so much more for being a "SP" hotel. Some paint and some new accent pcs. does not change an old Hotel to a up to date facility. After the lobby, it was disappointing. Elevator moves so slow, as does the staff in the Breakfast area. Opening our door to our room was shocking to me when the strip fell right of the door. One good thing was we were able to keep our car on the premises till we arrived back from our trip. I can only hope there is more work going to be done to this hotel to bring it up to par. Will continue to use "SP" hotels, but hope to find them in better shape than the Four Points.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tbrown38 Wasn't happy at all
When I booked my reservation, I advised the Operator that I only wanted to make my reservation if they had room availability in the am. When I arrived, the woman at the front desk said that she wasn't sure why they told me that as check-in was at 3p. I explained to her that I'm aware of the time of check-in but I only booked my room based on what I was told.nShe then asked me if I was staying for the night or for the day. I'm not sure what that was about as it shouldn't matter as I paid for a one night stay.... I wasn't too pleased with her attitude although they were able to accomodate me an hr later after I had arrived. I also wasn't too happy with the room decor. The room colors were dark and gloomy. don't think I'll be staying at that location again

Rated 3 out of 5 by PMBPhD Hotel Going Downhill
I have been a regular and frequent guest at the Four Points over the last three years. I have watched the service level and rooms deteriorate over that time.
My observation is the operational staff just doesn't care. My room door stuck, the tv didn't work and maintenance could not fix it, the toilet didn't flush well. However on top of it room service trays with food and dishes are left in the hallway for hours at a time.
Despite me being a gold member, I was forcedto wait to check in and out since no one was manning the "preferred" desk.
The local management knows of the problems but cannot seem to effect any changes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ARTXFL Newly renovated?
This hotel was, in theory, renovated. My carpet had massive brown stains which I hope were only coffee.
The bed though, was one of the best I'd ever slept in.
Bathroom, very small. This is an old hotel that is trying to be brought up to standards that I would deem a Four Points should be. I wish I'd have stayed with my other branded hotel though.
The front desk was BEYOND terrible. The receptionist basically didn't care if I was there or not. She was ok once I got her to do something; but was not really interested in being pleasant and customer oriented. The second shift crew was much better; but after the reception of the first, my attitude went down the drain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DumbFound NOT TO MY STANDARDS
Three rooms were reserved this weekend for a couple of friends and myself. All three were disappointed in the maintenance and upkeep of the hotel. I arrived to have a maintenance person still completing some sort of room repair, however I had to reconnect the link to the toilet flush in the back of the toilet. The maintenance cart was still sitting beside the room the next morning. One of my buddies had to make a maintenance call on a problem in his room. Oh a toilet plunger sat in the hall way for forty eight hours. We all laughed, when they looked at me and told me to never book a Motel 6 for them again. The sad part is, I had much higher expectations of Sheraton property!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mrlee45 Great Hotel---Mediocre Food Service
I was pleasantly surprised with the accommodations and the hotel, overall! My room was well appointed, clean and the bed was just super! The disappointment came from the restaurant. The wait time for meals was nearly intolerable and some of the wait staff was, very simply, incompetent! While I've seen wait-staffs that do not write down your order they are usually very efficient. This person did not write the order---in fact, he forgot what I asked for. Were it not for another food service associate, the experience would have been a disaster! Waiting to get a meal was 30 mins--others were also waiting a comparable amount of time. Bad commentary to an otherwise excellent hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mslady718 My Experience At The Sheraton
The only problem I had was I requested a refrigerator for my medicine and it wasn't in my room. I called the ext # 610 or 600 about five times no answer then I dialed 0 and explained it to the young lady that answered and as I was explaining it she is blowing in the phone like I disturb her and didn't want to hear it she then transferred me to the front desk. The young lady that bought up the refrigerator she had an attitude she knocked the refrigerator so many times against he wall I didn't think it was going to work and said if she got hurt she was suing. They really need to be trained a lot more. The front desk was awesome I wish I could name the two young ladies that assisted me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by alih0728 Disappointed
I have statyed at this property a few tmes and this time my experience was less than stellar. My room the night before my flight did not appear to be very clean and the tv did not work. The walls were so thin I could barely sleep becuase the room next to me had their tv on loudly all night. The night I stayed at the end of my flight was incredibly small. I could barely open the closet due to the placement of the bed, there was no soap in the bathroom and the towels felt like straw. Not the experience I have had at 4 Points Philly Airport in the past.The dirver on the way to the airport was driving crazy and was a miserable person and felt like he was completely disgusted about his job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JSquared Didn't meet expectations!!
I was there for the Frozen Four hockey tournament and the facilities just didn't meet our expectations. You have to take a cab to the arena or downtown which can be expensive, but the worst part was not being told that parking would also be charged at another $12 per night over the room charge. Also, the restaurant/bar was only open until 10 at night for a place that has nothing around to go to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PM70 LeeAnna, front desk, went above and beyond!
On the last night of my stay I realized I lost my pen, a Waterman. Though not an expensive pen it was a gift and I had it for 12 years. Retracing my steps I could have lost in the Shuttle Bus or high tables in front of the bar. I called the front desk and explained the situation to LeeAnna. She quickly checked the area by the bar and told me she would call me back after someone had a chance to check the Shuttle Bus. Not only did she call back but she informed me she would also check the bus herself later on. Unfortunately the pen was not recovered but LeeAnna was sympathetic to my situation and made me feel every effort was made to locate it. I would like it if she is recognized for her efforts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MaeWest Front Desk Service Supreme
My early morning flight required a stay close to the airport. I dropped my bags off at the front desk man who stowed them behind the desk while I left to return my rental car. Some two hours later (yes, I got very lost) he welcomed me back, checked me in with my Gold Card SPG services and helped me take my bags up to my room. His courtesy and responsiveness to my needs was just the best.
Only two shortcomings in this stay were the quality of bath towels (thin) and the room service breakfast started too late in the morning for me to have room service prior to leaving for my flight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Platinum13 Very basic
This hotel provides the basic necessities for a breif stay. Location convenient not much in the area no eating establishments . The room was very basic. The lights in the bathroom were dim and both the ceiling and the bed lamps were out. The door to the room did not secure when I left the room .I discovered this after returning to the room after going to the lobby and the door was ajar. Thank goodness I hadnt left the property or the door would have been open the entire day while I was gone. . I had to pull the door shut each time I left the room. Thats a major security flaw. .

Rated 2 out of 5 by FrequentFlier2013 Small room
My room was a lot smaller than the pictures seemed to describe. Felt cramped. Also wished I had the opportunity to use firmer pillows as the ones on the bed were very soft and not very supportive.
In the morning, as I was waiting for the airport shuttle, I had a cup of coffee but hotel staff informed me that they ran out of lids for their styrofoam cups. This was very inconvenient as I boarded a bumpy shuttle bus.
Not sure I would recommend this hotel, not sure I would NOT recommend this hotel. For a Starwood property, however, I think it falls a bit short of that standard.

I've never stayed at a 4points before, so I did not know what to expect. The bar area could use a little more work as it felt really out of place.
it was clean.
the window blinds are atrocious. They were the sheer see through type that blocks little to no sun at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gigi48 poor reception
Arrived very late 1:30 AM. front desk wrote the wrong room number on our key jacket and didn't even apologize when we went back down to get it corrected. felt really bad for the person who thought their room was being broken into at 1:30 in the morning. Next morning went to breakfast which was included in my room cost. selection was fair. $11.50 for a muffin, yogurt and very out of season fruit. and the front desk forgot to give us our breakfast vouchers.
