Four Points Sheraton, Phila. PA 4-3-10

I reserved a w/chair accessible room but the Sheraton had reserved a regular room. Fortunately, they had one available.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

When making the reservation ask [...] for the cross streets. I Googled for directions which gave the address as 1201 Race St. It actualy was 1201 12th St. between Vine and Race. We wasted 30 mins. looking for the hotel. Your survey needs a N/A. We only had a snack at the hotel so I can't give an accurate response to dining. The snack was french fries and they were excellent.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The best Italian restaurant in Philly (Maggiano) is two blocks away from the hotel. They cater to groups and a very decent price for an excellent meal.

Very nice

The facilities were very comfortable for my situation (traveling with an adult son). The location couldn't be beat for convenience, but the biggest positive was the staff, who were exceptionally courteous and helpful.

Comic con weekend

Staff is friendly and immediately brought us more coffee when we asked at 3am....with a smile! We were staying for a convention so being right next to the convention center was perfect. We wish there was a bit more of a value for $179 a night because ive stayed in hotels in other cities just like this one for less than $150 and had way more amenities such as a pool or fridge or microwave. Still, the customer service we got was great and I would recommend it.

Great trip

We had a great time in Philadelphia, markets were right around to corner and everything was very easy to get to. The valet was a little slow for my liking. Overall a good stay at the hotel.

Average hotel

We stayed this weekend at this hotel. The room was clean not so spacious though. The bathroom was clean and modern, had a great shower. The staff was decent until we found out that an employee was trapped in an elevator. They actually told us not to call 911 because it was just an employee and they did nto want a scene! He was in there for an hour! That put us off a bit. Also, the walls are very thin-you hear everything! Was a decent location to the city within walking distance or short cab rides.

Fine

Well, they said that they did not have the type of room I reserved. After insisting, they magically found us a room. It was fine. Small but clean. The beds were comfortable. The shower was big but awkward set up. We had to ask for extra towels but they were promptly delivered. not a luxury hotel but was fine for the one night we stayed there. Did hear the alarm and shower from the next room-woke us up!
