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.

Perfect Getaway

The room and view of the city were very nice! The construction going on outside wasn't :( To be woken up on a Saturday morning to those sounds was disappointing. The drinks at the bar were good but our server was not. No service what so ever .. She never checked in with us and we had to get her attention to get another round and even our check. This was not a good thing.

Great time at Penn Relays

The hotel was very nice and clean. There were a few minor problems (parking) but overall a pleasant experience. I will probably use this hotel again next year! The Phillip's restaurant was a plus!

Good and reliable

Everything you would expect from a Sheraton hotel. Nice service from all the staff, and very clean rooms. Comfortable beds and a quiet sleep. Would certainly go again. The location is alright - a bit of walking to do for the major bus lines or the restaurant areas, but nothing to really complain about.

Convenient relatively economical alternative

Rooms reserved for a conference at a downtown Philadelphia hotel were sold out. This hotel was within a block and was much more economical.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

A long but very interesting walk to Varalli, 231 S. Broad St Philadelphia, PA 19107 (215) 546-6800 was worthwhile - nice meal, prices more reasonable than most, and a very attentive staff.

Great location and place to stay

Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel is a good place to stay in Philadelphia with a very good location that very close to downtown and city hall. The staffs were very friendly and very nice to us. The room was clean so not a bad experience.

Great for Marathon

We stayed here for the Philly Marathon. It was great to be able to walk to the expo and start line. They were also very accommodating to a late checkout after the race.
