Rated 4 out of 5 by kjohnPT Dependable service, consistent performance
I use this property several times throughout the year for family members coming from out of town and business guests. Time after time, the quality of staff is excellent. The recently renovated facilities are an added bonus. The only thing it is lacking is an indoor pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by garym Conference Meeting stay
1. The internet was terrible for multiple participants attending the meeting.
2. The staff failed to order a taxi the night before and caused unnecessary problems early the following morning.
If it was wasn't for these items I would have been highly please with my stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Riggo Good stay
We were very happy with the hotel facilities, staff, and shuttle to Merriweather Post Pavilion. The only complaint that we had was when left in the morning, the hallway from our room to the lobby as well as the parking lot was littered with pizza boxes and beer cans.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Krabs13 NOT a good experience
The hotel was over booked and we were FORCED to another hotel 15 minutes away form all of our family and friends and then promises made for the next night were not met. Overall was a horrible experience and we had 30 or 40 people staying at this hotel, very sad

I stayed with a corporate rate but i was told that the breakfast was not free... I was very curious because i always ate when i stayed at the hotel.. I asked a front man when i checked out and i was told it was free. Please make staff's understanding consistent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WCtraveler2013 Older Property, but comfortable
The room was a nice size. The linens were clean and comfortable. The rooms in the Lodge require a good bit of walking and no elevator, but each has a microwave and refrigerator. The staff was friendly. I enjoyed the food, but my taste runs to simple and basic.

The hotel has the most wonderful staff. They cater to all you needs in a curteous and pleasent way.
I really liked Tyrone who took me to the mall and had a super conversation.
Michele at the front desk was great and Free at the restaurant was wonderful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CTdead Plumbing needs upgrade
Hotel location was great (few blocks from merriweather). Room was nice and furniture was very comfortable. Plumbing in the room was not adequate. Tub did not drain and toilet would run after flushing. This was not what I expected from a sheraton facility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Traveler55 Great Stay!
I haven't stayed in a hotel where I'm not at top loyalty status in quite awhile, but I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay here. The hotel location is great and the staff was extremely efficient and accommodating. I will definitely stay there again!

What a beautiful location! We stayed at this hotel because of its proximity to Merriweather Pavilion. We could walk to the concert and not have to worry about driving and parking. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I stayed at the hotel while in a wedding and the staff made it possible that we were all on the same floor not to far from each other. The hotel is very clean and provides a calm atmosphere for any occasion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Loopole I stay in this hotel a number of time during the year.
I like this hotel very much. However, this particular was not as good as before. My room had a musty smell which I assume is from the construction going on for the water leaks. My dirty linen was not taken away when my room was cleaned on the last day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tom303 Disappointing experience
First, the good. The hotel is in a nice setting with a walking path around a pond. So it has some potential. The staff are friendly and helpful.
Sadly the negative far outweighs. The restaurant was pokey, threadbare and loud due to an exhaust fan running above the bar. An Applebee's would have several steps up in ambience. My dinner salad was pretty clearly dumped from a plastic bag and onto the plate. Desiccated and tasteless.
Returning to my room I realized there was periodic, low frequency vibration running through the room. The hotel's maintenance person said it was from equipment mounted on the roof. No way I could sleep with that, so I asked for a different room. To the hotel's credit, they instantly obliged (can't fault their responsiveness).
The new room adjoined that of a rude couple who put on loud music and then had a conversation over the music. That's no fault of the hotel, but the room's lack of sound suppression certainly didn't help matters.
Happily I was there for only one night. This hotel definitely needs a bit of capital investment if it's not going to detract from the Starwood brand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Loki911 Your standard Sheraton ruined by its staff
Been staying here for weeks and unfortunately will keep doing so because its convenience trumps the negatives for me. Some if the staff are great, but when you have a front desk manager that has no concept of guest service, the experience is ruined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WCCFAN Always a great experience
I have stayed at this hotel over 10 times this past year and have always had a pleasurable experience. The staff is beyond courteous, the rooms always clean and the beds comfortable. I highly recommend this Sheraton and look forward to returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimberly1122 Great Club!
It seems like more and more Sheraton's are going to very skimpy Club Lounges, especially over the weekends.
This Sheraton has a great club, even on the weekend, with quality food items, really enjoy this hotel.
Staff professional and very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vsvib This hotel is great and near to city town
The hotel is nice, near to a great landscape. This is my second time at this hotel, and at this time I just don't recommend the room # 228 or any other at the same level because they do not have elevator access. But the hotel in general is fine.

The hotel has excellent service
Front desk operates like clockwork
Rooms are nice and clean
People everywhere are friendly
Breakfast buffet is terrific.
The ONLY thing that is not up to the rest of the property is the AC unit. It is noisy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by je128d Overcharged and hotel will not return phone calls
I stayed only 1 night but was charged for 2 nights. I have called the hotel multiple times, I am always transferred to a voice mail from someone in accounting who never calls me back. Very poor customer service, would never stay here again.

My flight did not arrive until late and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful upon my arrival. They also secured a taxi to my destination with only 15 minutes notice! Very clean and inviting rooms. Best sleep I've had on the road!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SPGLifetime1 Rooms need some TLC
This hotel met most my expecations. However, when when the curtains don't open or when the toilet paper dispenser falls off the wall. It tells me this room needs TLC.
Btw-the staff did note the issue, and apologize for the situation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anex43 Disappointing
Room was generally ok with some exceptions. You need to be 6'+ to get to the safe. No non slip surface in tub.
The bar "ran out of" two of the house wines by the glass. They didn't have brandy glasses.
Overall just not up to par.

Rated 2 out of 5 by goaliemom Rooms were seedy and dirty
There was chipped paint and the room had an odor to it. I called to the front desk asking where the fitness center was. When i went to the fitness ctr the next morning it was closed due to flooding. That was not shared with me.

Sheraton's rooms exceeded our expectations. Rooms were so clean you couldn't find a dust bunny! Sheets were soft as was the comforter. Lots of light when you needed it and great room darkening shades. All the comforts of home.

The carpets are threadbare; the place needs an overhaul. It's also has an odd layout; I had to carry my suitcase up some stairs to get to the level of my room. Staff is wonderful from the front desk to the breakfast servers.

Thank You - you have a superb team.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DB55 Nice, large rooms
Was very happy with the room. Large and comfortable. Only issues were noise from the hallway late at nights and the fact that there was no way to run the fan continuously. I would very much recommend this room in the tower.
