Don't bother with this hotel. I recently reserved and guaranteed a suite room with a king bed and queen bed. When I arrived at the hotel arrive 8PM I found that the room wasn't ready that they had several late check outs. I and my family were told to go to the in house restaurant and have a free meal. Over 2 hours later were finally told that our was ready but it wasn't the room type we had reserved. It had a king bed and a pullout sofa. There was some dirt on the floor and the one remote didn't work. I asked when we were given the key why the delay, I was again told it was late check outs. I then looked at the asst manager and asked point blank if they had oversold their rooms. She said yes the system did. This is totally unacceptable. I reserved and guaranteed a room. That means when I show up it is waiting. I showed up at 8PM not midnight. This is unacceptable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Helen1998 Not very clean
The hotel was ok, the best thing was the staff who were friendly and managed to produce breakfast every day in 5 minutes flat.
But my room was dirty, the bathroom especially. The bathroom door was very bad along with the bath, the ceiling was covered in funk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by willistmlproud Decent hotel with horrible food service
The hotel was pretty decent. The food was good, but not only did it literally take 40 minutes to get a burger and fries, the waitress was a terrible/miserable server. She would go 20-30 minutes between visits to our tables while we were drinking. It got so bad, we just stopped drinking and went back to our room. When we got the bill for 2 burgers,fries and a soda it came out o $55 dollars with a poor tip. Outrageous.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mommie13 Something is different
I have stayed this hotel numerous times for the convient location. Prior to this stay, the staff were always professional and accommodating. It appears that there have been some staff/management changes. And these changes are not for the good. Front desk staff, I dealt with (young lady) was so far removed from being a the professional that Starwood properties instill in there staff.
She was very short and rude when I requested my Spg check-out time, her response "we don't got a spy checkout for today"...... Now, to the room, a few dust bunnies, stains in carpet, smoke alarm hanging from ceiling with wires exposed. There was some type of gamers convention and numerous soda, beer and pizza boxes strewn through the area outside of my door.
I am saddened that the management is not keeping this place up to par. This has always been my go to hotel for the Philadelphia area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sister66 Family Reunion
about 20 members of our family stayed at this sheraton during our family reunion. The group rate was prearranged as well as free parking but the staff seemed not to know about the free parking. It was only after I spoke with the front desk supervisor on date of check out were our bills adjusted. Also we had to ask for maid service. For Sheraton I thought that was a given.
Children in the pool were not monitored.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Young90 Only One Issue
We often stay at this excellent hotel with very good experiences. This last visit we had a problem with the machine at the parking exit. It ate my ticket and the gate would not open. Backing up is not easy with cars behind you. At the desk they told me to go back and push the silver call button. I had no response. Backing up again I received a ticket which eventually opened the gate. Not a good experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by loyalw High price - low value
For the price paid one would expect to not have to pay for in-room Internet connection.
The water pressure was poor and variable when showering. The shower control was defective in that you had a choice of scalding or freezing, with nothing in between.
The food at the restaurant was okay; definitely NOT worth $14 for a cheeseburger, though. Had I had transportation, I would have done better at Burger King.

Rated 5 out of 5 by conbon78 Nice hotel with excellent staff
I was very impressed with this hotel. They had a Starbucks located in the hotel, which was a bonus for the morning. The hotel staff was really friendly and the shuttle even took me to a different building since it was on the way. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. The room was super comfortable and nice. Loved the pressure in the shower! Also, had a great fitness center with weights and nice machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Norman Comfortable Location at Airport
I love this location close to the airport. Only issue I had that night was a fire alarm at 3 Am. Totally disturbed my sleep, had to rush out from 7th floor with luggage like the rest of the guests. Otherwise this is a nice hotel. Fortunately there was no fire in the hotel's kitchen. I left my car for 7 days as part of the hotel package. The suite was nice and extremely comfortable.
Fantastic Location !!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jondec2012 Typically good
Typically I wouldn't submit a review for the hotel. It normally a pleasant stay and what I expect from a hotel. All of the staff is very friendly and professional. This time however I was in a room where the vent in the bathroom was so filthy I was shocked. There was a layer of dust/dirt on the vent so thick, i don't think it was actually working. I probably will stay someplace different moving forward.

The initial incidental fee was not 15% of my one night stay. Room service took over an hour to being extra linen for the beds. Wallpaper was peeling off the walls, shower head was loose, tub needed calking desperately, vents were extremely dusty...just to name few. I had children staying in the room & their were way too many health violations to stand. If my room was not paid for then I would've left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicky Disappointed with a Housekeeper.
Usually I would rate everything as excellent but there was a housekeeper who was extremely rude to my daughter when we were checking out. My daughter accidentally left her phone charger in the room and she saw a housekeeper and asked if she could go inside to retrieve it. She yelled no it's against policy and slammed the door in her face. My daughter saw another housekeeper and asked her for assistance, the housekeeper stated that she would talk to her and try to retrieve the charger for my daughter. The rude house keeper slammed the door in her co-workers face as well. My daughter reported this to the supervisor at the front desk and to the housekeeping supervisor, she claimed the situation would be addressed. In all of my years of coming to the Suites I have never encountered a staff member who conducted themselves in such a rude and unprofessional manner. My daughter was in room 421.

Rated 1 out of 5 by aau74 Terrible experience
This hotel refused to honor guaranteed 4PM checkout for SPG Elite members, kicking me out at 2PM stating that housekeeping needed to prepare the room for the next guest. Housekeeping kept banging on my door all morning from before noon even with DND sign on the door. Phone in the bedroom did not work. Except for check-in, all interactions w/hotel staff were unfriendly. Do not recommend this hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by billCT Restaurant rip off
Had party of 6 for dinner. Did not see that an 18% gratuity was applied, and I added a $35 tip on top of the 18%.. Waitress did not even question that fact that she was given a $63.35 total tip on a $158 food and beverage charge! Then, my e-mail folio showed another $27 charge for meals the next day. Interesting, since I had a breakfast coupon! No call back from Billing when I called to complain.

While I have stayed in this Sheraton many times, this was my worst experience at this hotel. The room was extremely Dirty, showing poor housekeeping department.. Also the hotel was extremely noisy to the extent we had to complain to the front dest and have security come to try and quiet the adjacent room.

I travel to this hotel a couple of times a year and one this stay, I had issues, which is an abnormal experience. Upon arrival, the type room I requested was not yet clean. Arrival time was ~3:30PM. To compensate, I was upgraded to the business suite. That room had a king and a pull-out queen, which is a horrible substitue for a double room. Consequently, I had a poor night's sleep. Not good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VTomS OK hotel close to the airport
Slight disappointment - this is Sheraton?
The rooms are large and well maintained.
Toiletries offered are third rate, though.
The biggest issue is the restaurant and low quality of food and uninspired service.
There are two other SPG properties on the same lot.
A bright spot: the Aloft lobby and barman Cesar.
I am SPG Gold and it did not make any difference vs. my colleagues with no status.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Astrojo Don't stay here unless you're desperate
I've never seen so many up charges on a bill and the pool had throw up in it even after it was called to the staffs attention it was still there later. The hot tub has been broken for months and the noise level while trying to sleep was outrageous!!! The staff could honestly care less about you so I suggest anywhere else. I've stayed at cheep motels that were cleaner and more quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gary56 Good hotel except for paring
Overall a good place to stay.i want to point out that the parking is about as stupid as can be and takes away from the stay . I have been staying there every year for at least 8 years and the situation with the parking gate has not improved and will not stay there again because of it. It took me over 5 minutes to have someone let me out of the parking lot due to the stupid gate they have

Rated 2 out of 5 by mljmiller577 Better Management
My friend & I were hungry so we dedcided to eat at the Relish lounge. Being Super Bowl Sunday, the place was packed. There was one server on & another standing around in the empty dining room area. The one server in the lounge couldn't handle the crowd. Meanwhile instead of the bartender helping him out, he was watching the game. The other server in the empty dining room was doing NOTHING. I went to the front desk to inform them about the problem & she said the other server was on her "break" Where was the f & b manager??? Why was a server on their break at dinner time on super bowl sunday?? It was completely horrible! I have worked in the f & b department at a Starwood hotel for 9 years & when we had a busy weekend or day coming up, we made sure there was enough help. I would not recommend this hotel because of the lack of management in the f & b dept & the lack of caring by the front desk staff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chukkie Cash policy
Great Hotel, but because I was paying with cash, I was treated like a second class citizen. WiFi was included with the room but since I did not have a credit card on file, I was blocked from using that service. I did join the SPG at check-in, however, the way I was treated, Sheraton will be the last on my list, when all else fails. As I felt unwelcomed, I don't believe you will miss me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BillN Nice to always have a suite
We stay here about 3 times a year, whenever we need to grab an early flight. It is always comfortable, and a good long term parking rate with shuttle makes it particularly attractive. We'd prefer a more intimate restaurant experience, but the menu has expanded beyond "gourmet burgers" and is consistently well executed. The recent addition of a 24 hour SPG lounge is another plus.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alyssa523 Worst experience I've ever had.
I had booked a hotel room at Sheraton Suites because we were visiting Philadelphia for the night. We got to the hotel early to find the lobby full of angry people and luggage waiting to check into the hotel. When we tried to check in, they explained to us that the system was down and they couldn't get it working. It had been down for 4 hours. Being the optimistic people we are, we decided to get ready in the bathroom lobby and go out and enjoy our night because surely the system would be fixed by the time we returned. Well, when we did return they had found a room for all the people in the lobby, but still said that their system was down and couldn't find a room for us. We sat/slept in the lobby until 6am when they finally found us a room. One bed for 4 adults.. Not exactly the "suite" that we had booked. Never again can I trust this hotel's capability of providing excellent hospitality as I had in the past.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bob18 Needs alot of help
Check in took over an hour and I was first in line (checking in at 430pm)
To get out of the parking lot they share with two other starwood properties takes about 30 minutes, the ticket machine at the gate is broken and my key card never worked, even after being fixed 3 times.
No platinum recognition.
Will not stay here again, a very poor example of a starwood property.

Requested a list of the TV channels to advise which TV station goes with which number on the TV set.
Made 11 calls to the front desk over a 90 minute period and the answer was always the same ...." he is on his way up to your room with the list...."
After the 11th call it arrived.
Every other hotel in the world has this list in every room . Why doesn't this
