Rated 1 out of 5 by ferreseft Worst experience at an SPG property ever
There were two false fire alarms in the middle of the night. While the staff can not prevent this from happening, the lack of organization was unacceptable. No one indicated to the guests that it was ok to return to the hotel so we were left out in the cold in the middle of the night with no idea what to do. Twice. There was no apology for the false alarms from the staff - in fact, no communication whatsoever from them. Absolutely awful experience and very much below the high expectations I have come to be accustomed to at other SPG properties.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MT4SG Arett Show
I stayed at this hotel as my assistant booked it for me for the Arett Show. I expected to receive the Show rate but when i checked out it was not on the bill. I asked for an adjustment and was refused. I asked to speak to the manager and he also refused to provide the Arett contract rate. This is totally unacceptable and I can tell you I will not stay at this SPG property EVER again!!! Total unacceptable customer service!!!
I will NEVER EVER recommend this hotel and I will do everything I can to have Arett contract with another hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by beth26 Great location, uncomfortable beds
We stayed for two nights. Positives: access to the pool, location of hotel to shopping, pleasant front desk staff. Negatives: extremely uncomfortable beds (the sheets and comforter were extremely crispy, almost like the paper cover on the doctor's table, and the mattress was murderous to my back). Also, we reserved a deluxe room which should have had a microwave and fridge. When we checked in, we were told they would have to bring those items to us, as they were out of the rooms. Fine. After my second phone call, they brought the fridge, but not the microwave. I called about that, but it was never brought and we gave up hope for it. I have had excellent experience with Sherton in the past, but am hesitant to try again for fear of the uncomfortable beds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pouchkie front desk help
We arrived early and pre-registered. from there we went to the pool until our rooms(2) were ready. When we went back to the front desk, they asked to see everything all over again. I said we already pre-registered and pointed to a man behind the desk who we spoke with not 1/2 hr before. He said he didnt't recognize us so I had to go back to the pool area to get my paperwork AGAIN. for being spg members I thought that was unnecessary. Also on check out day, we had arranged for a late check out and so we went out for breakfast. Upon returning to our rooms, the keys would't work. The front desk never saw we had late check out and so at 11am, the keys were usless. Very annoying. We were very disappointed with the service. This was our 2nd time at your hotel.

From the 16th floor, there is a wonderful view of the city, outlets, other hotels and the ocean. Also very nice at night to look out and see all the lights. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and snacks. I do think the parking fee is a bit steep at $15/day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dina This hotel met our expectations
This was my second time at this hotel and the first time for my friends. We had an amazing experience at the hotel. Our luggage was brought up to our room by Mr. Mitchell and he was excellent. He answered all our questions about the hotel and made sure we were comfortable before he left. We stayed in the club room so we enjoyed the appetizers/drinks the lounge had to offer which of course was a treat because we didnt expect that. Pool had very comfortable water temperature. All in all, would defintely go back again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Twinn2013 Excellent hotel for weekend stay!
Just stayed for one night, check in at 9:30pm was easy and quick. Front Desk Honor my Suite Night Award. Nice view from my Queen Bedroom / Suite. To be honest, I preferred to have King Bed instead of Queen for a room consider as a SUITE. Are you agree with me?
Be aware for a long walk for Self Parking from the parking lot to the hotel. Self Parking $15.
Very Close to all the Factory Outlets around the area.

excellent customer service at front desk. all requests were dealt with within minutes. warm greeting on arrival and snacks for our dog. excellent gym open 24 hours. nice pool for adults to relax and kids to have fun, shame that the outside whirpool was closed. comfy beds, 2 out of our 3 rooms had good views. good restaurant on site and open till late. choose here over a casino hotel, its an easy walk to the boardwalk and our morning walks along the beach were great providing you looked out to sea !!!!!

Room was dirty. It was obviously not cleaned. Bathroom smelled like mildew towels and there was other peoples hair on the bathroom floor. There was other persons hair when we pulled the comforter down. Gross. Then under the bed there was beer cans which my child could have touched. I didnt even want to sleep there but my husband and I were too tired to drive home to PA. I will never stay here again. Best part about the hotel is the valet service which are highly competent and very good at there job.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ki777 This hotel disappointed me
Although I usually have a great experience when I stay at a Sheraton, with this stay I was disappointed. I wasn't put on an SPG floor at check in, I imagine that if I had been I wouldn't have experienced a room with no iPod radio (although I prepaid for a room that had one) and a tub that was completely backed up so that taking a shower became disgusting. While I preferred not to call around at midnight to have someone possibly switch my room due to these issues (I had two children with me)

Rated 2 out of 5 by sosad Falling apart
Phone didn't work, shower drain clogged up. Very poor lighting, no vent in bathroom. At 3 AM got woken up by PA system announcing that "the emergency situation" was under control. We never got the first announcement informing us of any emergency. The decor takes me back to the 1970s but in a bad way. Location however is very convenient. Express check out used to be available. No longer an option. it seems instead of improvements being made, client friendly services are being reduced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by who33 one loud hotel
the shower in my room shook so loud I thought it was going to explode. other guests in the hotel said the same thing. the walls were so thin you could hear everything around you. we also could hear people's conversations above us through the vent in the top corner of the room. we also heard the toilet flush above and around us all day and night. so to say I had a relaxing, quiet stay is an understatement! I will be recovering from my stay for a week. they need to improve all of this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ACLKris Platinum gets you NO WHERE
From the moment I checked in to the moment I left - I didn't feel as if my appreciation for being a platinum member was met. I had asked for a roll out bed 3 times before it was delivered. Since this was a leisure trip, I shouldn't have to do my due diligence with the staff to make sure my requests are being fulfilled.
Even when I spoke to management, it was just going around in circles. Let's just say if there is ever a need to go to Atlantic City again I WILL NOT BE STAYING HERE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JWUK Perfect location, great views, immaculate rooms and great hotel team
The location couldn't be better, perfectly situated close by the train and bus stations and easy to reach by car.
The rooms are spacious and very clean.
The hotel is central, but the rooms are quieter than most as it's set back from the boardwalk - meaning you get a great nights rest after all the fun on the sea front.
I would highly recommend this hotel both for business travelers and families.
The beer in the Tuk restaurant is fantastic also, lots of choice and great value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ACepeda1970 Less than what I have come to expect
I have stayed here other times, not sure what happened? Initially when I checked in the front person mentioned that there were no rooms in the club floors because they were still cleaning them. On Thursday August 22nd around 8:15 Am I handed the front 2 shirts to get laundered. Never got my shirts. I checked out yesterday morning and I was told someone would contact me. I guess its not happening. I hope I will get re-iumbursed for the shirts if they don't find them?

Rated 1 out of 5 by sofspok Not a pleasant experience
The bad experience started when we first arrived. We had to wait in our vehicle for over 20 minutes before we could enter the hotel. We were told our vehicle was over sized and could not be parked in the garage. We were waived the valet fee by Patricia at the front desk. Went to take a shower the next morning and there was no hot water and the water pressure was so low. Bathroom was not clean, hair around the toilet and basin. Trash cans were not empty and had gum stuck to the bottom of them. I expected so much more from the Sheraton in AC. Ask to speak to a manager during checkout, waited 10 mins. and was told the manager was on the phone. Karen at the front desk gave us $30 credit towards the room. Haven't seen the credits on my credit card as of yet , so I will give it a couple more days. You don't have to worry about a return visit.

We stayed at the Sheraton in Puerto Rico last summer and had a great experience. Last Friday, we checked into this hotel in Atlantic City and find the facility not well kept, noisy,pets ect. The most important issue we have was with the front desk staff, they were not helpful, not knowing why charges are being made to our credit card in multiple amounts for the same one night stay, as well as the insulting attitude of the front desk supervisor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Never2012 Would Consider Not Staying Again
This was the worst experience ever at a Sheraton. Ripped sheets, room smelled like smoke and hairs in the bed that were not mine. Then when I checked out and told the customer service person about the hair, who I think was a manager he said "ew", how nice. They gave me someone elses bill at checkout when I called to get my corret bill they sent me last years, then it took them four days to call me back to get me the correct bill. What a joke.

I live in Maryland.I came to Atlantic city to enjoy some much needed vacation time(4 Days).During my first day I received a call from my daughter (that's in the Air Force) That She came home to surprise me. I want to check out but the front desk manger said I would still have to pay for the four days I booked. Very bad customer service. The next time I visit Atlantic City this Sheraton would be the last place I spend my money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ZAHS Below the standard level
This hotel is average and below the Sheraton standard. Room was not clean, stains on the carpets and bedding was not "super comfort" as they say. The mattress definitely needs to be replaced. The parking is far from the hotel and you have to walk outside.
The hotel did not respect their advertisement for an upgrade to club level although I am an spg member. I guess we wil not come back to this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VeteranTraveler WOW!
This property exceeded my expectations on a number of levels. They insured that my stay would get off to a good start with an email explaining the availability of temporary parking while checking in. The folks at the Front Desk were friendly and efficient, and the VIP Suite upgrade was a most welcome surprise. The hotel's association with the Miss America Pageant, is an obvious attempt to recreate the glamour that was once associated with this event. It works. It is a welcome touch to those of us that remember the Atlantic City of another era.
While not on the Boardwalk, the hotel is right at the end of the Expressway, convenient to great high-end outlet shopping and only three blocks from the boardwalk and the beach.
The morning of my departure, they e-mailed my receipt and there was no need to even stop at the desk. This is a beautiful property that is obviously well run. I cannot complement them enough.

Was not pleased with our stay this year. Paid way too much for our room and didn't get anything for it (such as breakfast). Way too noisy - heard other guests talking in their rooms - and there was constant slamming of doors at all hours of the night. We didn't bother to call Security because you can't stop people from talking in their own rooms. VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTED :-(.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BizTraveler00 Hotel service depends on "busy"-ness
Ordered breakfast room service that failed to show up in the AM. Ordered dinner room service that was delivered with incorrect order. I stay here every week and it is still unclear to me whether I am receiving points for "Go Green" unless I check with the front desk before leaving. Sometimes service is excellent but when the foot traffic is high you see a marked decline.

We have stayed at this hotel for years. Unfortunately this stay was very unpleasant! Room was small. Remote control did not work, Phone did not work. Shower did not draiin (it was disgusting!) and our room keys did not work on two different occasions - once after we worked on our feet for 10 hours straight and they other after we had dinner and just wanted to go to bed.

This hotel has it all. First off the people, from management like Nadir Ahmed, Bob, Maria to the valet people like Christian & Jeremy. Everyone treats you like family. The location is great, away from noisy boardwalk, yet close to shopping & casinos. Club access is great for breakfast &n snacks. I highly recomend this as the hotel to stay in Atlantic City!

My wife and I come frequently here for a nice weekend getaway. We are Starwood Gold members and were upgraded to club level room with a view of the city. We were allowed to check in early and leave late the next day which made it feel like we actually spent 2 days there for the price of one. Rooms are exceptionally cheerful!! We will definitely return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ritchie07 Parking Attendant Etiquette
Rooms are clean. Unobtrusive stay except for parking attendants outside whom I found quite aggressive, would not let you leave the car unattended for 5 seconds while you checked in. Perhaps a "15 minute short term registration" parking area would solve the problem? Definitely put a damper on my stay and not up to my expectations of a Starwood property.
