Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy90 Comfort in the midst of busy busy
I have to say Hats off to the Downtown Sheraton in Philly!! What a busy busy graduation weekend and also they had the SGK Cancer Walk on Sunday! And that hotel catered to all needs! It was such an exciting weekend.
We needed a fridge in the room for my husband's insulin and bingo they brought it up! He forgot his toothbrush and voila the desk gave him one! We were walking all day and to come back to such a comfy bed to sleep soundly was a great relief. Thank you for having pleasant staff and a superior Hotel. It made our son's graduation from Penn a very relaxing one! Thank you for your exceptional service!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Scott92101 Not a good experience
The staff bordered on being rude from the doorman to the wait staff to the guest services people on the phone, nobody seemed interested in providing quality service. On top of that the elevators stopped on every floor due to some glitch and we ended up taking the fire stairs from the tenth floor because the wait was so long. The public hallways were poorly kept with trash sitting out for longer than a day. At the club lounge when I asked for a cup of coffee at 9am, I was told there was no more even though they were open until 10:30. What is wrong with the people here?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Avimalka1985 Disappointment
We were disappointed in two things:
a) the thermostat going on and off all night makes for sleep interruptions.
b) two of the four days our room was not cleaned, beds not made, etc.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gregi Room was dingy and smelled of cigarette smoke.
Carpet and upholstery were dirty with obvious stains and worn areas. Entryway and bathroom smelled like cigarette smoke. To the staff's credit, they did supply an air purifier upon request, and it made a little difference, but the room overall (and the hallway) just are in need of sn update. Even with the 15% discounted rate I got for paying online upfront, this hotel room was not worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ENES Great staff, only good facility
The staff was phenomenal; the facilities could be nicer; new carpeting, a computer, a standard refrigerator, an unbroken safety locking stop on the door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patze Mother's Day Walk
For the last 3 years, my family have stayed
@ the Sheraton in downtown Phila, Pa.
This is a great group of people. Their focus
is exceptional care from the front desk to the
maintenance department. All our questions were addressed immediately.
Thank you for the exceptional care,

Rated 2 out of 5 by DanB This Sheraton needs soe work
This Sheraton is the least of the one's I choose when I stay in Philly. The only thing is has for me is a good location. The hotel needs an overhaul. The carpet in the rooms need replaced/ My room had peanuts on the floor by the trash can. Even the driveway in is marked off because the curb is chipping away. This Sheraton is definitely not up to the standards of other Sheratons I stay in, and will only stay there a my last resort.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Julie1955 problems that need to be addressed
During our stay, we have experienced a few problems. Unfortunately, this is not the first time we have encountered this. Every year we stay for the Mother's Day walk and the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk for the cure. This is the second year in a row that we have eaten at your breakfast buffet and have been very dissapointed. When we arrived, it took almost 30 minutes to be seated. Then, we waited in line for the specialty eggs and waffles. It took over 30 minutes to have something made because there was one chef cooking. Most of the food was depleated in the rest of the trays, or it was ice cold. Staff was notified by other guests waiting in line, and it still took almost 20 minutes till fresh food came out. So, our breakfast was cold when we ate. Very dissappointing especially since the buffet is almost 20 a person to eat. I was also dissatisfied because the elevators are not all in working condition. There were periods of time, especially right before noon time check out, that we had to wait 20-30 minutes for an elevator because only 3 out of the 6 elevators were working. I was also shocked to hear that one of your employees were rude to my daughter. She was out front smoking and one of your employees flung the door open and said you need to go to the smoking area over there...there is no smoking here" Then flung the door back open and hurried inside before she could say anything. When she had said something to the front desk, the only thing that they would say is that they were sorry to hear. That is unacceptable. There is NO signs that designate a smoking area, nor signs that say NO SMOKING. My daughter has no problem following the rules, but the signs need to be in place, so people know where to go to smoke.
