You pay out the wahzoo!

Everything was an added expense. Outrageous valet parking prices. Should have option if park yourself or valet. Elevators not working properly, Some staff were obnoxious when requesting information. When a hotel says it has ameneties they should be included in the price of the booking. Should not find out after reservation confirmed that I will have to pay double to cover the ameneties. Unreal...paid extra $300 just in forced valet parking.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Do not take the trolley tours for the entire 90 minutes. Get on and off often. If you take the entire trip it is very rough on the body. The drivers drive too fast over old streets and it makes for a very bumpy ride...nauseating. They speak so fast you cannot catch the historical sites as they point them out. Take stops clustered together and walk the historical sites then get back on and go to next cluster.

Price Too Good to be True...Construction

The hotel is in a great location but it was undergoing major renovations and there was lots of noise and dust. The heater didn't work until maintenance came and put in a new air filter. The restaurant was understaffed as it was undergoing a renovation as well. Overall a great price but not worth it.

Bad Experience

We needed a shower cap the night we got in so we could take a shower and go to bed and there was no shower cap. I had to call the front desk twice and after 25 minutes it was delivered to the room. The air conditioner made a horrible noise which made it very hard to sleep well. It was the first time I saw in a four star hotel the a/c unit inside the room. The unit is always out side not inside the room. The bathtub was dirty. It had black marks on it. It took for ever to get the car. I've had better service. I would really think hard about going back to a Sheraton Hotel after this experience.

Better in the photographs

I was recently there to attend a conference at the hotel; as a result, I spent five full days in the hotel. The hotel was very comfortable, with a great location. However, the fitness center needed major updates on the the equipment. Additionally, room service trays were often left in the hallways all day long.

If you want to see a sporting event at the Sports Complex it is a 10 minute drive. Very easy to get there.

Good Conference Hotel

The hotel hosted our conference (~200 people). It's a perfect size, the guest rooms are comfortable,and everything-- meeting room facilities, and the lobby area (restaurants, coffee shop, business center) was convenient. Close to the historic areas, and tons of restaurants. We were locked down in the hotel by a huge snowstorm, and the hotel staff, despite being shorthanded and working overtime, were wonderful. Only two negatives: the computers and printer setup at the business center was poor; almost impossible to print, and internet browser setup was lousy. A bigger concern was internet access, especially in the meeting rooms. If you're charging $10.00 per day for individual internet access in guestrooms and throughout the hotel, it's ridiculous to block that access in meeting rooms so you can charge $125.00 per user during meetings. That policy will prevent groups like ours from returning.

There are tons of great restaurants-- casual/cheap to 4-star-- within a short walk. Less than 15 minute walk to the Liberty Bell, Constitution Center, and several museums.

Beautiful location

Walking distance to numerous historical sites, and public art, and parks. Clean and comfortable. Large room and bath. Excellent restaurant and wait staff, friendly and helpful. Dissapointed that the whirlpool was not functioning because that was the big attraction.
