The staff was very professional, polite and showed concern. The room was ok but nothing great. No refrigerator and I found this very surprising. I did not expect a kitchen but a refrigerator for drinks and medication. The sheets we like sand paper so wear PJ. Like I said the hotel is Ok, just OK.

Good proximity to Barnes and other museums. Convenient access in lobby to Starbucks, a pleasant bar, and restaurant.
Excellent service at desk.
Rug in room needed cleaning/replacement, otherwise the room was well furnished/comfortable. Noisy guests wandering halls and trying doors in wee hours.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nessayaya Overall Not Happy
I was disappointed from the start. Rooms not ready, the desk said. Then there was not a room, the desk said, even though reservations made 3 months ago. dirty, not prepared for a convention group. 3 elevators not working. broke a glass in my room and it took 2 calls and 6 hrs to get addressed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tarzan1 Not a good experience
Check in service was awful. Over an hour late getting a room from promised check in time. When you pay for a room it looks like to me you should be able to check in on time. Check in staff rude. Room dusty on TV and furniture. No wash cloths in room.
Food was good at the meeting facilities.

I am very disappointed. It says before I made a reservation that there is a free wifi included, but when I got in the hotel, they were charging us $12.95 per hour. That is very misleading. We are planning to go back to Philadelphia next week but we are never going back to Sheraton again.

Hotel feels very run down. Staff was very polite, but I did not feel like anyone asked how my stay was or recognized me as an SPG loyal member. My shower did not drain and I had to make it a point to tell the counter at check out, which was met with a thanks I will let maintenance know.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SD1971 Hotel Stay
This hotel was the worst Starwood I have stayed in. The maid service was terrible, my room didn't get fresh towels, no coffee replacements, left my room service tray in the room from the morning. The bedding horrible, two flat sheets that come off the bed. Horrible, horrible, horrible.

The unfailing positive attitude and friendliness of everyone at this property make my frequent visits to Philadelphia that much more pleasurable. Great location, clean and comfortable rooms, good food, and some of the best views in the City make this a sure hit for business travelers

Rated 3 out of 5 by Carolyn no free wifi?!!
can't remember last time I had to pay for wi fi access at a hotel, especially when it costs $200 a night to stay there. We had a reception the last night and water cost $4? Really?. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Long waits for an elevator . Can't take the stairs to the 20th floor...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shuttle Great location, good lobby bar.
Checking in was a joy with Hamid and Mousaab working at the desk. After a long trip in they both made us feel like we belonged in the hotel. They gave us great recommendations for a night out and checked us in so quickly so we could see the city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mazzy73 A little improvement, but overall very good.
The location and room comfort was excellent. The room itself needed a little more attention. The bathroom tub was wet and had hair in it. The dairy creamer for the coffee was spoiled and solid. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Though they did not offer any SPG incentives.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rovingreporter Good hotel in great part of town
Great for walking to the Franklin institute, Art Gallery and other smaller museums. 20 mins to independence square. CLose to highways and 5 minutes to University City.
Overall satisfied with the time we spent here. The staff were very attentive to our needs and should be praised

Recently stayed at this property to attend a graduation in town. I was happy with the recognition of my gold member status and upgrade. The room was comfortable and in good condition. Overall, the property could use some updates and more attention to cleanliness of common areas.

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,

The hotel was great! The location was great! And, the price was fair considering the location and amenities.The only issue I had was after checking into my room, I noticed the maid staff left a dirty cloth on the floor and I had to wait two hours for a plunger and refrigerator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ManuelM Not one of the best one
If you stay more than 3 days make sure they give you the room key for the 3 days because they never change the default setting and on wednesday you will need to get a new one (It happened to many the 3 times i stayed there). Or worst wait 45 min on the 25 floor for a new key.

The air conditioner was extremely loud; we finally turned it off. The bedspread was very heavy. The club room was not open one morning and did not have drinks in the evenings; we find Pittsburgh's Club Lounge much nicer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oliver41 Nice conference facility
The facility is good for large conferences. There is adequate space and a good set up. It is easy to reach from the airport using a local shuttle service. The guest rooms are comfortable. The hotel hallways didn't appear to be vacuumed daily.

Really nice hote. Room very comfortable and clean.
Elevators were painfully slow, so I took the stairs a few times...and while I know stairways are generally for emergencies only, I was struck at how dingy and unwelcoming these stairwells were, Particularly the north tower.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NotImpressed1Downtown Mediocre
1. Don't bother to check in early.
2. The club room has poor quality food.
3. The front desk can't do anything for the customer, and beware of the room you get if you ask.
4. The hallways are dark and dingy.
5. service is slow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rick AVOID THIS CHEAP MOTEL
Rude staff, old, poor cheap renovation, marginal location. First room assigned (422) was on a roof level- anyone could simply walk up to the window, AND IT FACED A WALL. Asked for a new room and got (room 605) DIRECTLY ACROSS THE HALL FROM ICE & VENDING MACHINES...NOISE !!

Rated 2 out of 5 by John2255 Good location and staff but...
The room was less than I am used to at Starwood Hotels. The door to my room required slamming it to close, sometimes more than once. The air conditioner banged each time it started, There were stains on the bathroom wall and the paint on the bathroom ceiling was bubbling.

This hotel is conveniently located to popualr Philly sites, is very clean and comfortable, and the staff really went above and beyond to make me feel at home. The only thing I would add is a small frideg and microwave to all rooms. Most comfortable beds in the industry.

When we arrived our rooms were not ready. The staff took very good care of us while we waited for the rooms to be ready. Everyone we came in contact with was very friendly and easy to talk to. Really enjoyed my stay.

I was very disappointed with the condition of this hotel. The carpet in the room was very stained and the bathroom just looked worn. The shower head would not put out a full flow as half the water still poured out of the tub spicket. I would not stay in this hotel again.

It's mean to charge for WIFI. I paid $3 for a coffee at a nearby Starbucks and got free internet and couldn't get it at your hotel despite the room price.

SPG club level service for evenings should at minimum run from Mon-Fri. It' s not offered during holidays or Friday's. This should be advertised somewhere otherwise it's deception. The concierge staff, room cleanliness and the view at this property were spectacular.
