Great location

Excellent location, super comfortable bed. Decent breakfast but overpriced. Gift shop didn't have contact lens solution....not cool. But staff was super helpful as I was dealing with a lost bag. I'd stay here again.

great location - pretty good hotel

we usually are very happy with the sheraton and with two small kids it was nice they have an indoor pool and walking distance from the historic district and penn's landing. parking is really expensive and really the only option is to valet. also - i was shocked there as no fridge in the room. we had to request one and the one they brought was ancient and smelled like mildew. the rooms were comfortable though. maid service was a little annoying...the first day they came at 2 and the next day the maid actually walked into our room at 8:30am. but we would still stay there again and be sure there was a fridge in our room ahead of time.

Desk staff was quick and efficient. Helpful in accommodating our desired room location. The beds are very comfortable and the bar was nice. The hotel is extremely well located near all the historic sites and other tourist venues. Will return again and again.

Bad Experience

We needed a shower cap the night we got in so we could take a shower and go to bed and there was no shower cap. I had to call the front desk twice and after 25 minutes it was delivered to the room. The air conditioner made a horrible noise which made it very hard to sleep well. It was the first time I saw in a four star hotel the a/c unit inside the room. The unit is always out side not inside the room. The bathtub was dirty. It had black marks on it. It took for ever to get the car. I've had better service. I would really think hard about going back to a Sheraton Hotel after this experience.

great weekend getaway

great location for the seminar we were attending. walking distance to lots of restaurants and historic neighborhoods. Staff is attentive and always pleasant. Could do with an occasional clean behind those bed headboards. I had to fish out something and the dust there is pretty amazing.

not worth the money

Its true that the hotel is in a great historic location but thats where the amazing qualities end. The entire place is stuffy and overpriced. The accommodations are showing wear & tear, bathroom lighting is cavelike, & the walls are far too thin (especially if you are unfortunate enough to have a door that could make your room into a suite with your neighbor). I have been to Philadelphia twice now. I have stayed at the Le Meridien on Arch and the Sheraton Society Hill. If you're going to spend the $ stay at the Le Meridien instead -- it blows this place out of the water.
