Functioning even more smoothly as a business hotel since its 2013 renovations, the Sheraton Hotel Philadelphia now features a handy lobby connection center and library, redesigned meeting spaces, and brand new fitness equipment. The same stalwart features guests would expect from a Sheraton hotel are here, with regular Social Hours showcasing the hotel's wine list, free hors d'oeuvres and newspapers in the Club Lounge (Club upgrades only), along with an indoor pool that's ideal for a few late - night laps. Meet for cocktails under the lofty four - storey atrium at the Lobby Lounge, and move onto the Terrace Cafe when it's time for some a la carte eats.
Key facts
  • 757 guestrooms
  • 38 meeting rooms
  • The Link @Sheraton connectivity center, with free Wi-Fi
  • 24-hour front desk
  • Indoor pool
  • Self-park and valet
  • Fitness center
  • 2 restaurants: The Lobby Lounge and The Terrace Cafe


Neighborhood
The Sheraton Downtown sits just blocks away from JFK Plaza and City Hall, right in the middle of the Center City West area, and opposite the beautiful Italianate Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. Take in the works of Renoir and the French Masters at The Barnes Foundation, or have fun with the giant interactive displays at the science - based museum The Franklin Institute near the Vine Street Expressway, just north of the hotel.
Hints and tips
If you're flying into Philly, you might want to invest in a SEPTA pass for the local subway trains, because you can reach the hotel (Suburban Station) from the airport in less than half an hour, and use the pass to zip around the Historic District, and attractions like Independence Hall during your stay.

Paying for Location

Hotel was decent. You are definitely paying for location. The room itself was in decent shape. If rating the room and lobby, the hotel is not too shabby however, the other public areas are a bit run down. There are a number of stains in the hallway and it seems like the floor was not level. You're paying a bit more for this hotel as it's in downtown. If you're a Preferred Loyalty Guest, I'd say that would sway one to staying here rather than another hotel.

visit philly

terrific location, friendly staff, room clean (although carpeted floors look aged). cost for wi-fi is unacceptable considering other area hotels provide it at no additional cost, and $19.95 for non-organic breakfast buffet is simply unacceptable. Otherwise, the location and hotel overall is a decent stay for working class travelers.

Just an overnighter

It was a good stay overall and the price was good. The only big issue is I was called from someone stating they were from the front desk and wanted my mailing address and more. I didn't give it to them and when I went to the front desk they stated no one had called. I just want to warn people who may stay there in the future.

Halloween trip to Easter State Pen

When we got there at 4 our room was not ready. The gentleman at the front desk upgraded us to a newly remodeled room on the 24th floor with a beautiful view of the Library that Rocky ran up the front steps. The hotel was so close to the haunted prison and a Our cab only cost us $6. Beats trying to find a parking spot. Had dinner in the lobby restaurant it was good not great. The TV was out of service for the entire hotel for a couple hours but that wasn't their fault and not a big deal to us.

Great trip to Phily

We visited Philadelphia last week and stayed at Sheraton downtown for 2 nights. It is pretty close to downtown Phily and we could walked to some of the famous city attractions! In fact, a very famous church is just below the hotel and don't forget to visit it. There is a gym and a pool there with sophisticated exercising amenities, but the pool is a little small.
