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.

Location
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.

Granddaughter's Wedding

While the rest of the wedding guests stayed at another hotel, they all complained about the elevators and the front desert. I totally enjoyed my stay at the Sheraton.The elevators were big and speedy, and the staff was friendly and very helpful. My room was very comfortable and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.

Large hotel, rather sterile

I was in Philadelphia for a weekend getaway to see the Giants /Phillies play 2 games and did some other sightseeing. The hotel was very large and adequate, but it lacked some warmth. The restaurant could have stayed open for dinner later than it did. The breakfasts were good. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

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.

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.
