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.

Sheraton Hotel accommodations and rating

To funeral service. Two days travel, one day memorial. Only had time for about six hours touring the Phl historical gems (in true life historical form) nearby the half mile about the visitor center. It is a great place that I will one day spend 5-7days to enjoy. I love the foundation of America and all that our leaders left with us. It is an honor to receive these gifts and only befitting those of us who will uphold the ideals. Many [*] do not care and even Americans who don't know how, why, when this all came about.The hotel and many sites are as memorable as those that made it. What's not to love and honor.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The brochures of the squares, the Independence Bldg, and particularly the Visitors Center give one easy access to what, when, where to go. The place is amazing with detail, documentation, speeches, recorded events of past. They were remarkable leaders at a true time of need for all the world to benefit from.

Great location

Excellent location, super comfortable bed. Decent breakfast but overpriced. Gift shop didn't have contact lens solution....not cool. But staff was super helpful as I was dealing with a lost bag. I'd stay here again.

Weekend Trip

The hotel is in a great location and the overall experience was fine. For the amount I paid, I was hoping for a better room. It was spacious, but I was not told that the bed was a murphy bed. Weird room layout.

not worth the money

Its true that the hotel is in a great historic location but thats where the amazing qualities end. The entire place is stuffy and overpriced. The accommodations are showing wear & tear, bathroom lighting is cavelike, & the walls are far too thin (especially if you are unfortunate enough to have a door that could make your room into a suite with your neighbor). I have been to Philadelphia twice now. I have stayed at the Le Meridien on Arch and the Sheraton Society Hill. If you're going to spend the $ stay at the Le Meridien instead -- it blows this place out of the water.
