great savings, great service

I traveled for the Philadelphia marathon and booked well in advance on [...] for a great price. At check in 2 hours early I was treated warmly and efficiently. I also took a late check out which is often but not always given to marathoners. The same desk clerk treated me wonderfully again. The room was terrific and the hotel was about as close as you can get to the race start. Happy customer.

Good hotel, in a good location.

I arrived and they said they didn't have a room with the size bed I reserved. In compensation they waved the parking fee. The staff was courteous and helpful. And the room was spacious enough to let you spread out and small enough to be cozy. Its with in walking distance of a lot of historical Philadelphia landmarks as well as city hall and the Philadelphia museum of art. I'd recommend the hotel for what ever your stay in Philadelphia.

Unbeatable location for the price

The hotel location was great and it was a real value. Hotel had good amenities. We were glad to see reduced price weekend parking in the hotel garage for a reasonable rate. The pool was small and entire health club area needs an update but it served the purpose. Free Wi-Fi would be a great add!

Great deal! Comfy bed :)

This was a great hotel to stay at in Phili ... right downtown, and what I really liked was the underground parking since I am traveling for 6mths and didn't want to carry all my luggage inside. I felt comfortable leaving it in overnight. The bed was amazing ... soooo hard to get out of in the morning.

A wonderful hotel

I was there to meet my granddaughter for a day trip to New York City. I stayed in Philadelphia two nights.The hotel was most convenient for [...] - she could walk there from her appartment. And it was convenient for us to go to dinner and breakfast.And On Sunday morning I could walk to church at Philadelphia's beautiful Cathedral os Sts. Peter & Paul.

Sheraton in the City of LOVE!

Excellent customer service! We arrived earlier than my early check in time and they were more than happy to accommodate us. The room was pristine and the beds were more comfortable than I could have ever dreamed. Rely on the concierge service. They are top-notch and know the city inside and out. VERY helpful. Breakfast was very yummy, worth the cost!

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Go and do the Big Bus Company tour! For $27 you have a 24 hour pass to ride the bus all day and get on and off at any of their stops. You can stay at a stop for as long as you like and hop back on at anytime. I also suggest the Easter State Penitentiary tour. As a history nerd it was really an interesting place to see. It offered a unique look into the prison system, reformation and how far we have come in the realms of punishment.
