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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CFM56 cab assistance
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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Goofus53 This hotel needs improvement
It took 3 hours to have soup, salad and dessert...bad very bad. The toliet in my room broke so I had to move to another room, then the makeup mirror in the 2nd room fell apart in my hand. I checked out a day early and went to another hotel

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 RALAF Very Good Service
The view from the club level is breathtaking. All the staff was exceptional. The day we were to leave the battery in our rental car was dead. We were headed to the airport to catch a flight. Someone from the hotel came to assist us within minutes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jasmine810 Not impressed

Rated 4 out of 5 by ADB1112 So, so
The lobby and most of the rooms lived up to the Sheraton standard but my guestroom was not all that great. There were a number of stains in the carpet and the shower head was not securely attached to the wall. Room 534 definitely needs some TLC!

My stay was not satisfactory. Blood was on our sheets (TWICE) even after guest services was called and changed our sheets. The breakfast was too expensive and very nasty. The pancakes were rubbery and the meal horrid. I'd never come here again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsRay5410 Great customer service
Check in was speedy and efficient, the staff was friendly. I was a little disappointed when I drove up there was no staff to greet and direct me to the parking garage. I'm not certain when next I'll visit but I hope that doesn't happen again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TCHU Clean but slightly dated
This hotel is clean and comfortable, but slightly dated in room set up. No free internet. No choices in dining. Fees are expensive. The lamp switch broke off and the cleaning lady left it on rather than having it fixed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ONeal42 Still no incidental refund
I was there for an event and the room was fine. I liked the renovations. But I'm annoyed by the fact that I was not refunded my deposit for incidental. I left the room in great condition. Bad business .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lefty3 This hotel is in a great location
I thoroughly enjoyed my 5-day stay at the hotel. The staff were exrtremely nice and welcoming. I haven't had as good an experience in a hotel for some time. The hotel is very conveniently located for walking the downtown Philadelphia area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by shweta room amenities and room service was below standard
Room amenities were really poor and the food that we ordered for dinner was cold and tasteless. With just one night in the city we were too exhausted to eat out. Had a poor experience at the pool too, way too small and no staff available.

I have stayed at this hotel previously and it was great. This time I was very disappointed.
The water in my room was not replenished. The TV did not work and the staff never refilled the coffee packets. Very disappointed in this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by betsy Hotel Staff are super friendly
Philadelphia's Sheraton Downtown's staff in the "Friendly City" live up to the city's name. I don't think that I have ever stayed anywhere where all of the staff have been so friendly. Thank you for taking care of my needs...

Room had the smell of old stale smoke.
Room key needed exchange several times in one evening in order to function and still then security had to open door as lock/keys were malfunctioning.
Mary at the Concierge desk was great.

This time I got a room at the club level. And so at least 2 of the 6 elevators were out of service I never had to wait long for one. At one occasion my room wasn't cleaned and it only took me two attempts to get this resolved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DN25 Old. Needs updating.
Must say the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The hotel however, is in need of some significant help. Old and stained carpet. Hallways in need of paint and upkeep. Thin towels. Just not pleasant and up to SPG standards.

The front counter staff was extremely professional and helpful. My room was not cleaned or touched the two days that I stayed.
The overall experience was good.I enjoyed seeing Philadelphia even if it was on a limited basis.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chitraveler2014 Small things would make a big difference
The room desperately needs more light. A floor lamp and brighter bulbs in all of the lamps would help. The heat was anemic; I kept the room at 80 degrees to get to a tolerable minimum.
