good hotel

Pros: Clean room; friendly and helpful staff; convenient location to public transportation and not too far from Philadelphia's historic center. Cons: Room's size is kind of small; some furniture is rather crammed; no complimentary breakfast.

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.

Great Location, Great Price

The hotel had a fantastic location. It was a 2 minute walk to Reading-Terminal Market, 10 minute walk to the Old City Historical Sites, and a 1 minute walk to Chinatown. The price was also unbeatable and they even let us check in at 12 rather than 3. The room was very clean and comfortable. We ordered a room with a King Size bed (we went as a couple) but we got two Full Size beds and so sleeping was very uncomfortable because we wanted to share a bed. Also, you could not get cold water for drinking from the faucet because it came out only warm or hot. Finally, we wished that there had been a refrigerator for perishable food.

Better then I expected!

The room was nice. But no refrigerator and charges 10.00 for microwave rental. Also they charge 50.00 for incidentals per day and locked up 100.00 of my cash when I wanted to pay cash.

Good choice in Center City

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The location on the north side of the big convention center might not appeal to every traveler. The convenience of Chinatown and Reading Market was good for me. It's a few blocks to transit stops, but the airport shuttle was very convenient to arrange. There's no pool, but the lower-level fitness center was fine. I think the hotel is in an older building with a totally new interior.

Chinatown and Reading Market would provide an amazing array of foods for many days staying at this hotel. I never even looked into eating in the hotel restaurant, but it was another option.

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.

Good place, good price.

The hotel is next to convention center in heart of downtown, but cheaper than the four star places. What you give up is the fancy pool, gym, etc. And the room is small but nicely appointed. Free wifi and computers in lobby (most four stars charge). If you don't need the pool and space of fancy places this place is very serviceable and a lot cheaper. Staff was quite friendly and helpful. I'd return.

Nice rooms, thin walls/floors

The hotel looks and feels brand new. While that makes for a nice room, it also makes for a noisy one. The problem is, like most new construction, everything is way thin - the walls, the ceiling and especially the floors. I could hear the squeaky footsteps of our neighbor at 3am when he/she came in because the floor is all connected. Also, my suggestion would be to ask not to be placed in the rooms across from the elevators. The elevator noise also permeates the room. The location is pretty good and, as I said before, the rooms are really nice (great bed, bathroom, TV, etc.) But if you have anybody else on your floor, especially somebody in the room next to you, you may not be able to truly relax.
