Rated 2 out of 5 by Snape Where fun went to die...
My brother and I decided to spend a couple of days in Atlantic City, so I chose this property. It was the off-season, so I wasn't expecting much, but the entire experience was rather underwhelming. No upgrade despite the fact that the property was largely empty. The club lounge was closed to reflect the fact that we visited in the off-season, so breakfast was served in restaurant. The breakfast in the restaurant was the only bright spot. Offerings from the menu were prepared fresh and everything tasted great. It's a shame they don't do anything for guests visiting in the off-season.

I am disappointed in the upkeep of the furniture in the room. I would think that since they have been upgraded to a four category they would have improve the place but it looks the same.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cbatra Hotel needs a lot improvements. Not worth the stay.
We stay here last night and were surprised of the Customer service provided by this Sheraton hotel. Being a gold member there was only one staff working behind the reception desk. Our room was not as clean as we expected. The room was cold and had told the staff about it but got no response. The next morning the shower was not dispensing hot water and was making a lot of noise from the plumbing. Once again spoke to the front desk and they said the enigineer is coming but no one came to fix the issue. We eventually had to check out and wait till we reached back home to shower. Not the type of service I expected from Spg while being a gold member. Not the level of service and the way this ignorant staff treated us I would ever come stay here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamaine9 Love this location!
This is the second time I've stayed in this hotel for the "Beast of the East" cheerleading competition. Best decision I've made during this event! Quick check-in, reasonable rates and the front desk staff is amazingly helpful and polite.
My only negative rating is for two years running my room service has been atrocious. This year, not only was I overcharged for part of my kid's dinner but it was also cold when it arrived almost TWO HOURS after I ordered it. I know the food service is outsourced from the Sheraton but maybe the hotel needs to look into finding another company to handle this? They haven't met my (and many of my friends' also attending this event) two years running.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mspf22 Keeps getting worse!
We stay at this hotel every year for a competition at the convention center. We ONLY stay here for convenience. The hotel keeps getting worse!
We booked over 6 months in advance but could only get a king bed, no dbl beds. The shower made a high screeching sound during the duration of the water being on, the tub filled up with water while taking a shower. Maintenance came to "fix it" after 2 calls, and left saying they could only fix the clog a little bit, and couldn't fix the skreetching sound. So the next day taking the shower tub filled back up and HS to deal with the sound! Asked for a blanket for the cot and they brought a queen size sheet that appeared to have stains all over it, same as the one on the bed! It was disgusting looking! When I asked for the manager to come up, he did and informed me they get these complaints all the time, it's not stains they are feathers In between the double sheet????? Either way he agreed to me it was disgusting looking and would not want to sleep with it. They finally brought me a clean blanket for the cot but once again it was a queen size and way too big for a cot.
The room did not have a refrigerator which I thought was in the room description on line.
The bathroom counter was dirty and the toilet kept clogging. The floor in he bathroom was stained.
The food from room service came cold.
They tried to charge me for 2 days valet even though when I checked in I told them I did not have a car, I received a ride down with another family staying at the hotel. My husband drive down the next day and valeted his car. The valet brought the car up for us with ice all over the windshield. Apparently where they valeted it wasn't covered, even though we could've self parked in a covered facility connected to the hotel!
The list goes on and on. Bottom line, I do not understand how Sheraton can put their name on this hotel. It is not up to their standards. The only appealing thing about this hotel is the lobby! And the only reason people continue to stay there is because it is connected to the convention center. It is totally over priced and disgusting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Loriok1 Front Desk Staff Lamara
This person would be assigned to the back-end not the front desk. She doesn't know good customer service as she didn't even smile and did not accommodate my request to upgrade my room as a loyal Gold Preferred Member like me. In fact, she didn't even offer the Gold Preferred Guest perks like asking whether I want bonus points and complimentary beverage. I had to call Guest Service and the person who answered apologized on her behalf, and told me to go down to the front desk and claim my voucher for the complimentary welcome beverage. It's people like her who should be moved to the front desk who carries the famed "great customer" service that Sheraton group of hotels are known for.

I had a chance to visit over the weekend. The staff and management at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center did a wonderful job with providing excellent accommodations and service for my friends birthday weekend. Jeff, the General Manager and his team are definitely what makes staying at a Starwood property so rewarding. I look forward to coming back in the future.

Great location. Right across the street from the convention center! Located right by all of the outlets. There are a lot of good restaurants near by, such as Cavo and Wingcraft. About a 10-15 minute walk to the boardwalk. Staff is nice, everything was good. The pool could have been a little warmer, but it is what it is!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nicole25 DONT book a room here !
HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. I booked a room a month and half before my stay at the Sheraton in Atlantic City. I called the hotel on my way down to inform the man at the front desk I would arrive until around 9pm he said it would be no problem. He DID NOT inform me that my room may be given away. When I arrived the women at the front desk told me there is a first come first serve policy and that my room with a king size bed was given away. THE ROOM I BOOKED OVER A MONTH AGO. She offered me two double beds instead. I asked why this happened. Why I wasn't informed about this when I called before arriving or when I booked the kind size room. The women behind the counter didn't have an answer for me.
I will NEVER book a room at this hotel. I will NOT recommend it. In fact I have already informed multiple people about my NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE.

I'm not a Sheraton traveler but I will probably start spraying at them a little more. My room was upgraded, Windows kept the noise from street traffic low, bed was very comfortable. I'm a breakfast person and the breakfast menu wasn't the greatest. The breakfast sandwich didn't have much flavor, but the pancakes (plain) were wonderful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nay1 One Night & Most Likely Last Night Stay
I am appalled at how this stay has gone. I've stayed here before and usually don't have issues but this stay has showed me that it's definitely time to find a new spot. I reserved a aaa rate with parking that included free pkg, free access to club lounge, and Continental breakfast. This was in my rate description but for some reason the people here did not see that. We couldn't access the club area until we made a trip back to the front desk only to find out when we get up to club lounge it's not open. This is something that shouldve been adjusted in my rate. I paid extra to stay on this level and it's not open at all. This needs to be taken out of the rate configure. They did comp us 20 but that's equivalent to about 2 drinks. I would much rather have my rate adjusted. Our brkfast was free but you would've thought I was making it up each time I brought it up to staff. Not one time did any staff member ask to take a look at my confirmation that clearly bulleted everything that was included in the room. We had to make another trip to the front which they did comp our brkfast but in turn wanted to take back our 20 comp for the lounge not being open. WHAT! Your taking back something I paid for which is access to the lounge. These two are complete separate things!!!!
I've been a spg member for quite some time and this hotel has really left a bad taste in my mouth.
It's nothing worse than feeling like someone is taking something from you that you've paid for but then make it like they are giving you a deal by giving it to you for free. I paid for all of this!!!
This Sheraton needs some work ASAP.

Excellent location for shopping and the Noyes Gallery. Staff were very helpful from the minute we entered through our exit. The snacks and breakfast on the Club floor were varied except for the alcoholic choices. Not everyone loves beer.
there are individual serving sizes of wine available it would be nice to see some of those choices available too or instead.
All in all a pleasant experience. We will be returning.

We stayed for a week and had no complaints at all. Great room, helpful front desk, clean room, good food.
We want to give a very special recognition to Miss Lorraine at breakfast in the morning. She is an absolute delight, friendly, just excellent at what she does. Really goes out of her way to make your dining experience perfect. Please give her 5 stars for sure.

Hotel nice and comfortable. We were on a quiet floor. Heard others complaining of people's kids running in the hallways consistently. I was surprised that pets were allowed.
Room carpeting needs shampooing as you could feel the stickiness under your bare feet.
My major complaint was an eyelash hair found in my eggs towards the end of my breakfast. I addressed it and bill was taken care of by staff.

The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was average but the bed was very comfortable. No refrigerator or microwave. The carpet in my room was soiled. I was here on business and spent most of my time in a conference room, which was also comfortable.
The food was average at the Tun Tavern restaurant.
Neither hotel or restaurant were a good value-both were convenient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CriKri Stay for an official
I think I called the front desk 5 times before and after check-in to ensure the credit card authorization was on file for the traveler and they confirmed. Still it was too hard for them to not ask for a credit card at check-in... I wasted way too much time for this stay and now I have no idea what card was used for what. I will have to call accounting once again to figure that out. Last but not least I was told to call the morning of to ask about early check in and that I would be told over the phone if a room was available. When I call the day of I am told I have to show up in person to see if there is a room available. Really? You can't see in the system if there is a room or not? What is the most dissapointing is that one associates says somehting and then the second day another one says something different. Too bad you have a great property ...

My husband , son and stayed week of July 26. Hotel lobby warm and welcoming. But is showing signs of wear and tear. Lobby chairs had stains on them. Bedroom smelled molded. The bed was very uncomfortable. Felt like we were sleeping on spring boards. Pool had way too much chlorine . Looked alittle foggy and dingy. We ate breakfast buffet in the café. It was not good at all. Very little choices. The worst food ever. Also did I mentioned they allow dogs. The hotel smelled like dirty dogs. Don't waste your money or time here. You will be disappointed.

What hotel has a General Manager (Jeff) in the lobby greating guests? This one does! What makes a great hotel? 1) location 2) staff & 3) price. This hotel has all three. Great location next to convention center & shopping & away from noise/boardwalk. Staff is terrific Nadir, Maria, Gwen ,Marcus & so on. Finally the price. This is clearly the best value in AC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DocHarv My Go-To spot in Atlantic City
I can respect that some people have had less than stellar experiences here, but this SPG member is a huge fan of the Sheraton Atlantic City.
I guess part of the evaluation of a hotel is asking the question 'what do you want out of your hotel experience?' For me, I don't stay at the Sheraton Atlantic City to be dazzled by mega-resort options like 15 restaurants and 5 bars, a concert venue, and a rooftop pool. I stay at the Sheraton because I want a relaxing, business/leisure oriented hotel with easily accessible amenities (pool/gym/club lounge/bar), a great and convenient location, super-responsive staff, and SPG-level recognition and service. I want to be able to get to my room within 1 minute of walking into the hotel lobby - not some 10 minute walk past 400 people in a mega-casino. I also don't want to wait in a check-in line for 30 minutes, and then be charged a massive "resort-fee" per night. And I don't want to have to check-out at 11:00 am (as the casino hotels require, even for elite guests).
Staying at the Sheraton solves most of those problems. Some of the reviews here don't sound like the Sheraton AC that I know. I've stayed here many times in the past few years and have found that *many* rooms have complimentary fridges (this is listed in the room description), *some* even have microwaves (also listed in the room description), and I've never seen dogs or pets in the lobby even though the hotel is pet-friendly. I hate pets, and this has never been an issue for me. None of the big AC casinos offer free-breakfast, but the Sheraton AC does offer "free" breakfast if you're on the club level floors or use an SPG platinum breakfast benefit. But, I don't stay here for the free breakfast when I can just walk outside to the outlets and other casinos and enjoy solid meals at a good price. The parking price for self-parking is reasonable compared to any hotel (last night I was charged *double* the Sheraton's 24-hour self-park price to self-park for 3 hours for a concert at a nearby casino/hotel). I've also been to and previously stayed at many other Atlantic City casino/hotels for work and for fun, and I do enjoy the hustle and bustle of a property with a proper lounge, nightlife, and variety of food options. So, if I were with 10 friends and wanted a $100 per person dinner followed by bottle service at a trendy nightclub and then gambling for three hours and then a long walk on the boardwalk, I probably wouldn't think of the Sheraton as the ideal choice to stay. But, then again, those hotels are a quick cab ride away, and I've still done all of that stuff and then came back to the Sheraton for some peace and quiet after a long night. I'm glad that the hotel has security overnight, because I don't want Vegas-style partying in my hotel at 4 am, but if I did there are some great casino hotels up the block that will accommodate my rager.
The hotel does have a few key flaws, such as a very slow wireless network. But, now that wireless is free to all guests who book through the "official" sites, I'm hoping that the slowdown is temporary and the hotel will fix it. The valet staff *are* a little bit rude sometimes, but that's why I self-park and avoid the valet hassle. The self-park garage *does* get a bit crowded on big holiday weekends, and the hotel could do more to address that issue. And, the restaurant is *ok*, but that's why I visit the casinos up the street when I want fine dining at a much higher price.
So, based upon what I've seen, who enjoys staying here? Simply put, it's the best choice if you're hosting a wedding, a conference, going to the AC Convention Center, looking for a value rate on a crowded weekend, need 'business-friendly' options for printing, internet, etc., or simply want to avoid the drama and hassle of a mega-hotel casino. So that's why I keep coming back. If you're big on feeling "24/7 part of the action" or want to gamble all night, it's probably not the ideal choice. But, for me, the Sheraton Atlantic City delivers on what any SPG member should expect from a Sheraton - a solid (but not spectacular) club lounge, SPG member upgrades and recognition, a variety of room types for any budget, a pro-active and friendly staff, and the basic but reliable restaurant/bars that are a signature part of other Sheraton hotels. That's why I keep coming back - it always delivers on what I want for my AC experiences.
