Good location! Good stay!

Nice, clean accomodations. Only 3-4 blocks from the historical sights. We commented that we appreciated coming back to a smaller hotel at the end of a long day, it was relaxing. Housekeeping seemed understaffed. Rooms didn't get made-up until late in the day and had to wait for extra towels, etc. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Excellent location to old town

This hotel is in a great location to old town and the Delaware River/Penn Landing riverfront. There were a couple of minor issues with my room but after talking it over with the hotel staff they upgraded the room that I was in and I ended up being extremely happy with the best view of the river and free breakfasts and hors doevres in their club room. The hotel is in excellent condition except for some plumbing issues. The pool is big and indoors but under a glass ceiling and there were a number of people enjoying it. The only thing that could have been better is if they would replace those awful noisy hotel doors that end up making noise no matter how careful you are to quietly close.

Don't miss the Liberty Bell and Constitutional Hall just a five minute walk away. Betsy Ross' house is just a few minutes farther but make sure you check the opening time; some attractions don't open until 10:00 AM.

Really nice.

The hotel was a really nice suprise. The beds were awesome, the rooms were large, the restaurant and bar and lobby area were real nice, and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. It's a great location too -- for off and on the freeway and for seeing all there is to see in Philadelphia. I would definitely book here again.

You can walk to most attractions from the hotel. I would recommend an early morning excursion, followed by a rest and then an afternoon/evening excursion again. Positano restaurant across the street is excellent!

Charming and convenient location!

The location was perfect for walking to all the historic sites and many restaurants. We visited most of the historic sites plus China Town and the Italian Market in South Philly, all very accessible. The lobby was open and welcoming, with many spaces for reading or meeting with people and our room was spotless. The front desk staff was very helpful.

Look for restaurants that have a Happy Hour and order their appetizers, that's a meal in itself. You get greater variety of tastes and it's cheaper and more fun than entrees.

Wonderful people; a few caveats

The outstanding thing about the Sheraton Society Hill is the warmth and helpfulness of the staff: from the clerk at the front desk who checked us in to the counter person at the Starbucks in the lobby; we felt welcome. As to the room, it was the normal room one would expect at a three star hotel; comfortable, but nothing special. And we liked being so close to major historical sites such as Independence Hall as well as comfortable, tasty restaurants. Our major concerns were that the hotel nickel-and-dimes you on some items. There is a ten dollar a day charge for wifi access and a glass of skim milk on the breakfast delivery menu is $14 (wow!) We got one small bar of soap that was apparently supposed to serve us both at the sink and the shower for all three days we were there. And it would have been helpful if the hotel's site mentioned the fact that there was shuttle service to and from the airport for a reasonable charge ($10 per person). Also, although the waiter we had in the Wooden Nickel was a very sweet guy, the food was well below mediocre. We did like the fact that there is a Starbucks in the main lobby so that one could jump out of bed and grab a latter first thing in the morning. Ultimately, the first and last point we'd emphasize is how nice the staff is. When one is in an unfamiliar city, it is great to be treated well.

There is a row of wonderful ethnic restaurants within three blocks. Whether you would like Afghan, Korean, Brazilian, Indian -- the choices seem endless, you will find good, reasonably priced food a few blocks away.
