Rated 4 out of 5 by dlr51 Always a good stay
My wife and I have stayed at this hotel at least once a year for the past few years. It is always clean and comfortable. The standard room is large and well furnished. We just returned from an overnight stay last weekend and are looking forward to returning in a month.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dave413 ineptness hotel
after checking in , we unpacked in the room. my spouse left to go shopping downtown, i stayed in the room to relax a bit. being alone, i was using the bathroom & left the door open- and low and behold in walks a female hotel guest into my room. i am still on the toilet, she confronts me as to what i`m doing in "her" room. i said i checked in 2 hours ago, this is "MY" room. so she leaves, i call the front desk to ask why would you assign someone else to a room you already sold.
about 15 mins. later, a staff member brings me 2 "new" room keys , as my former keys are now deactivated.
since my spouse went downtown shopping, the "old" key would not now work to get in our room, therefore without any means to contact my spouse to say that you need one of the new keys to get in the room , and i have both of them, i was forced to sit in our room until such time as they came back , so i could open the door.
other than the embaressment and inconvenice of having to wait in my room.the room has no mini fridge, and the shower head was built for midgets. i had to kneel in the shower to shampoo and the shower head is like 31/2 ` up from the ground. very poorly run by inept staff and i will never return !

The front desk staff were amazing in getting us a second night when it was a booked up weekend. The dining services were also wonderful about providing for our dietary needs. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return during our next overnight trip to Burlington.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LovetTravel2013 Lovely stay
We were very impressed with the look of the hotel, lobby restaurant and pool area. I believe they in the middle of renovations as the rooms could use a little updating, but were perfectly comforatble. They only thing was when we came to see if we could check in for the night (on a Tuesday afternoon) the staff told us there was absolutely no rooms with a king size bed available, but he could offer us a room with two double beds and directed us to another hotel down the road that may have a king size bed available. My husband and I walked around the inside of the Sheraton and thought it was lovely and then we used our phones to go online and check availability and we were able to get a king size bed at a lower rate than what the front desk gave us for a room with double beds!! ANd it was available immediately! We thought this to be a bit strange. So if you are a walk in I would recommend checking on line if the staff tells you there is nothing available. Not sure how this is good business sense for them but it worked for us.

As always, the staff were great, the room was great and the facility was great. Very disappointed that the main resturant was not open Thursday or Firday night. I understand the economy, but you had a conference in place and only the "pub" was open for meals......

The bathroom was very clean. However, carpets in hallways need replacement and there is musty smell to hallways and the water in the bathroom. The hot tub that used to be in the pool area is gone. The fitness center is meager. This hotel needs a complete remodel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aimee236 Conference space could have been better
We had a conference held in the downstairs conference room. The temperature was either too cool, or too warm. In addition, there was an unpleasant aroma in the room.
The hotel room however was comfortable and clean. I wish there was a hot tub facility available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dada Worst hotel stay ever!
-the room was cold
-the toilet did not flush
-it smells chlorine in the room
-the direct acces to the pool was locked
-if your room is near the pool, you wont be able to sleep in the morning, it is REALLY echo, it is as if the people in the pool are in your room!

I was with a party of 6 in different wings and floors of this hotel. We all heard water gurgling through pipes at night. Even those that were in a different wing than the pool. It was intrusive. With so many other hotels in the area, why bother with this one.

Check in and check out process was quick and efficient. However, there was no mentiin of the hotel facilities or dining choices. Also room did not have shower cap in the bathroom or cups. towels and bedding looked pristine and up to par with higher end hotels.

The hotel worked our great for us as we had to be at Fletcher Allen Hospital everyday from early morning to the evening. The shuttle service was great, fast and from door to door without a problem.
The restaurant was ok but they need to do more with the menu.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sheila1313 Our experience
Our room #113 had problems which kept us up much of the night. Someone had programmed the clock to go off at 2:22AM and then again around 4:30 am. Then the toilet ran. This ttok away from the enjoyment of our stay and made our next day travel much more tiring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie16 Great for a weeks stay - very comfy
This hotel had everything we needed for a longer stay. We stayed on the club floor and had easy access to a quick friendly breakfast and early coffee. Tea and snacks available late in the afternoon. The room was clean and the beds and linens very comfy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DrSaad Renovation needed
The club floor room i was given clearly is in need of a facelift; the screens on the windows are either missing or bent out. Upon arriving at the room at around 5PM, there was a large bag of garbage outside my room from the days cleanings apparently. When entering the room it appeared as though the room was cleaned yet not put back together; drawers not pushed in, table pushed to the side, etc. I was looking for local information and called the front desk, the phone rang no less then 20 times, NO Answer. I called back on the guest services line, the phone rang 4 times, was picked up and hung up. I walked down to the front desk and asked where the guest services line would be ringing to, and the asst. manager said here. The tall guy working behind the desk looked over, said he was busy at the time i called; so, one does not answer the phone, or picks up the phone and hangs up. I am not sure why the hotel appears to be run down with the business that it does at that location; i would hope that changes are slated for the near term.

I was able to use the hotel's complimentary transportation to travel to and from the airport, as well as to a downtown location. The hotel was clean, the staff were courteous and friendly, and the restaurant was solid (acceptable food and great service).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizzie62 Comfortable, feels like home
I enjoy the ease in moving from one location in the hotel to another. The halls and access ways are an extension of your living room, providing comfortable spaces to socialize. The pub also offers an at-home feel, encouraging conversation and engagement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SidMD Unsatisfactory and needs improvement
Just not what the pictures and description show and mention on the website. The lobby/pool/fitness/restaurant area has been renovated and maybe the SPG rooms are better but the others are in dire need of renovation. Not the Sheraton that I thought of.

Stayed here for a week during fall. Have a friendly staff. Rooms were well maintained and kept clean. Most amenities met my expectations. The only thing that was below expectation was the internet speed in the room. Overall had a very good experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gina128 Hard to get to rooms
We booked our room 6 months ago...requested 2 double beds (2 kids, 2 adults staying)... When we checked in we were informed that because of flooding, they were overbooked and there were no rooms with 2 double beds. They gave us a king size bed with a pull-out couch bed.. If you have ever slept on that--it is NOT comfortable. The kids ended up sleeping in our bed all three nights, which is not fun or ideal. They did give us access to the club lounge for breakfast, but I would have much rathered having two beds that you could actually sleep in! Also, when we checked in, the air conditioning unit in our room was broken.. they did send someone to fix it. He was very nice, but it was 10:30pm by the time it was fixed. And our room was on the back side of the building...with no easy way to get to it. Needed to take the elevator to 4th floor, walk down a hallway, go through doors, walk through another set of doors and hallway just to get to the hallway where room was located. Must have taken 10 minutes just to get to room. Hard with children!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous The price is right for the experience
The room was clean but walking down the hall towards the room it wreaked of smoke and it was very noisy at night and difficult to sleep. Someone across the hall had snuck in their dog which barked through the night. The beds were comfortable though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oliveanneny Room needs some updating
The rooms are fine, but need some updating. The towels in the bathroom are very thin and scratchy. I stay here regularly, and many of the rooms have had their closet doors removed, leaving and odd atmosphere and no full length mirrors available.

As a renovated hotel, they've done many things to give it an updated look. Rooms are clean. Bathrooms are very small. Not what you would expect for a Sheraton, but not bad.
Service in the restaurant was excruciatingly slow. Very understaffed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ben2012 Good location, but needs renovation
The hotel is right off the highway, so it is convenient to get to and easy to find. The fireplace in the lobby is a nice touch. The rooms are, however, in need of renovation, and the hallways are too long and convoluted to navigate.

Not up to standards that I was used to for the SPG chain. Room was very tiny with water stains on the roof. Hallways had soiled rugs and ceiling was falling off. No hot tub and a very limited area for working out. Not what i was expecting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by paulinrochester Nice hotel...well located.
Complimentary upgrade made the trip all the better. Nice room on the 4th floor. Really liked the continental breakfast. Nothing is worse than having to arise extra early to scavenge the countryside looking for a place to get a light bite.

I found the room and facilities to be very nice. I was very disappointed to find that Wi-fi service was only available for an extra fee. I do not travel, often, but will be certain to ask if Wi-fi service is included before I book a room.

This hotel was due to undergo renovations when we arrived, and this was not made aware to us at the time of booking.The carpet was torn and the shower bracket was loose in the bathroom. I did not think it was good value for money.

The ceiling tiles in the room outside the bathroom were replaced with poorly applied foam core around which was a water stain. The room smelled musty and the window did not open.
Also, the beds were very soft and sank in the middle.

One of my favorite things about this hotel was having a hot tub to soak in after a long day out in the cold. I am bummed you got rid of it to expand your gym! Hopefully with the upcoming renovations, you find a way to bring this back!!

The pool seem to have a lot more clorine in it than necessary. My son and I both got a stinging redness from the pool. Every thing else was wonderful! We will definitely be returning. My other son goes to school at UVM. Thanks again.
