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 SalesDG Nice amenities
The hotel offers a gift shop, a terrific work out room, restaurant, bar, pool and more. The location is convenient and the staff was very accommodating.
This appears to be an older property and there is room for improvement on the rooms and meeting areas.

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.

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.

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.

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,

Not impressed with the hotel. The phone in the room did not work. Bell man said he would call to have it changed. Never happened. Wall socket cover was broken, and one of the lamps did not work. Told the desk when I checked out, did not seem interested when I told her.

Front Staff was AWESOME. Three rooms to juggle for my family and it was flawless.
Club floor was good as usual and always ask for the museum side of the hotel. Easy access to local Transportation

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.

My hotel room left much to be desired. The carpet was bubbling up in the middle of the room, and it is obviously an old hotel needing rennovations. The exercise room was very nice, and the food provided in the bar and for room service was good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kuclaxton Good Meeting Location
I came to Sheraton for a 2 day Accounting Program & was very pleased with the hotel staff, the hotel room, & the meeting rooms. I would recommend Sheraton to any businesses looking for a location that can hold large group meetings/workshops/programs.

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 DuluthJacket Lost my jacket
Left my jacket at the lobby lounge. Bartender said he turned it in to the front desk, but no one could find it over the final two days of my stay. My fault for leaving it on the back of the chair, but disappointing that it was picked up and then lost by the staff.

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.

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.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ksk17 In need of a total make-over and a good cleaning
This hotel is old and tired. The entire hotel needs a make-over. The public spaces are not being kept clean. The same litter was in the hallways all three days of our stay.
The noise levels both from within and out make it a very undesirable place to get any rest.

The cab driver that the Sheraton staff assisted me with was nice but once we got to the airport she had no way to take a credit card, had no receipt to provide which was a problem. Hotel staff should only use qualified legitimate transport services.

During my stay apparently there was a teenage mutiny at the hotel. 20+ minutes average wait for elevators, Teens running around the hotel unsupervised all hours of the day and night playing knock knock and running. I had to call to the front desk multiple times.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Titi The location is great but...
Average experience due to the fact that they have a big problem with elevator (20 minutes waiting time!).
Just not enough elevator for the amount of room.
Ben, restaurant gm, is an outstanding hospitality team member....make sure to meet him during your stay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JNC10019 Hotel is just Ok Elevators are terrible!
I have never been in a facility where the elevators were this atrocious. Each trip was an adventure in futility and frustration. It was so bad we stayed away from the room or the bar and restaurants in fear of having to use the elevators. Sad SPG Experience!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sue78 Could have been better
Was charged for a cot that we didn't need. Had the wrong room when we arrived but they did handle the change quickly. The new room had a window that was cracked from top to bottom - a bit dangerous and not at all attractive! Never enough towels available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BowlinBando Sleep interrupted by unfriendly staff
I checked into this hotel very late in the evening due to plane delays. The staff was welcoming, even at such a late hour, and I went up to my room for a few hours of sleep. The next morning, at 8:30 am, there is a loud knocking on the door. Since I was tired, I tried to ignore it and go back to sleep. A few minutes later, there is another demanding knock on the door. When I open the door, it is the cleaning person, asking when I will check out. Now, 8:30 is in no way close to the checkout time, and I was not delaying her job by trying to get my rest. So my response is that I don't know when I will be checking out. She then demands an estimate of when I think I will be checking out. After a late night this was the last thing I wanted to deal with at 8:30 in the morning. After that encounter I begin to get ready for the day, since I was alerady awake. After about 20 minutes out of bed, I see a huge bug crawling where I had just slept. Not my idea of a friendly or clean hotel, and I will not be visiting any time in the near future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackandjill27 This hotel has a good location and nice features
This hotel is convenient to museums and parkway with good bed and expected hotel features. The street level appearance is not nice from the city side where people approach walking from center city because they expect all customers to arrive from driveway.
