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.
General
Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel
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.
Dining
  • 757 guestrooms
  • 38 meeting rooms
  • The Link @Sheraton connectivity center, with free Wi-Fi
  • 24-hour front desk
  • Indoor pool
  • Self-park and valet

Rooms
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.

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!

Good Hotel at a Good Price

This hotel we (and friend and I) quickly found out to be better than ewe had originally assumed. It is located in a very good are of downtown Philadelphia that allows you to see the best of the city. The staff is very courteous and helped us with everything we asked for. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who decides to visit the city of brotherly love.
