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.

Sufficient for weekend getaway

Stayed here overnight and the staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The location wasn't bad at all your just blocks from some attractions and I felt safe walking at night. We had a double room and the beds were SO comfy also a larger size than expected (not queen size)! The lobby is fabulous and the rooms are good. I just hope they upgrade the room carpets and hallways on each floor. Otherwise, no complaints!

birthday weekend

I was only at the hotel for an hour before heading out on a Saturday night night and it was pleasant. The following morning as we were checking out, there were two men, one of whom was telling at the other for getting away from the group, all through the hallway and in the elevator. That was awkward. BTW, they put a $50 hold on your credit card....

Great Location, Very Comfortable & Easy

The location of the hotel is very centrally located and easily located near the Vine Street Xpress. Having parking at the hotel also made it an easy experience for my two trips outside the city. The hotel room was very comfortable and clean. The bed was large, pillows sturdy & puffy and the sheets were clean. I had a very nice rest. I did not dine at the hotel, but the restaurants seemed just adequate.

Perfect for Couples

A perfect hotel! It was located right in the heart of downtown, and it was in walking distance of just about everything we came to Philadelphia for. The rooms were very nice and spacious, and the staff is very welcoming and friendly!

Disappointed

Started out being assigned a single bed room and a double bed was reserved. They did correct the problem quickly. The coffee maker did not work, the refrigerator and microwave were missing, a light bulb was burned out in the bathroom and never replaced. The signage in the hall pointed ice and vending was located at the end of the hall. After walking the entire length a sign said ice was available on the 4th and 26th floors. Two ice machines for 26 floors? Red Roof does better than that. Had to call security the 1st night because there was a LOUD drunken party in the hall at 1:30 AM Wi-Fi only available for a $12.95 fee

Perfect for a weekend of museum visits

This hotel was perfectly located near the Barnes Museum, which was the main reason I visited Philly. My room was really comfortable, and the front desk and concierge staff were very friendly and helpful. The concierge especially was really great. There aren't many great places to eat right near the hotel, but if you walk about 10 minutes or so, there are many choices. Overall I had a great visit!

Ehh

the location of the hotel was perfect. Everything we needed was in walking distance. at first glance the hotel is beautiful but when we got to the room it was less than that. The room clearly had not been cleaned thoroughly. There were underwear and condoms left in one of the draws from the previous person who stayed in the room. Also, the linens and comforter were filthy. We had to ask for the room to be cleaned 4-5 times. No one came. There is a HUGE lack of communication.
