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.

christmas at the sheraton

Valet was courteous, very helpful with the many bags on a late Christmas evening. The check-in was longer than usual due to a unhappy guest complaining. A lot of construction was going on that was not made aware to guests prior to arrival. The pool, sauna, hot tub, and restaurants were under construction during our stay. The pool construction was completed but do to being refilled, was extremely cold. The room itself was great. Good floor, good location away from the elevator, quiet (even during the construction), very clean room, did not refill all bathroom sundries, continental breakfast was only fully stocked on the last day.

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.

Sheraton Society Hill

My wife and I were in Philly to tour the town. The SSH was in easy walking distance to all of the historic district. Also, it was 2 blocks from the subway, providing access to all of downtown. Nice, quiet hotel, close to bars and shops, at a good price. We upgraded to the Club Level and recieved beer/wine and decent snacks in the evening and a limited continental breakfast in the morning.

Excellent Experience

We traveled to Philadelphia for my mother's 50th birthday and explored Old City Philadelphia. We were centrally located so it was easy to access all the tourist attractions by foot. We saw the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross house, Vietnam and Korean War Memorials (across from the Hotel), Christ Church, and Penn's Landing (right down the street). Parking was a bit expensive, but worth it because of the convenience of not having to haul our luggage down the street. We were also able to check out late with no additional charge. Overall it was an EXCELLENT stay. I can't wait to go back.

Location, Location, Location

The Society Hill location is right in the heart of history. We had one full day and one afternoon to take in as much as we could, and walking from this location made it possible to see many of the highlights of Philadelphia's Old City. If history is what you are after, this is the place to stay.

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.

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.

Memorial Day weekend stay

We paid for a for a club room and these rooms are located next to the swimming area. The room had a very strong smell from the chlorine in the pool. The smell of chlorine was so strong that I thought someone had spilled it in the room. The receptionist found another room for us that was in the same wing, but the smell was still strong. I believe constructing rooms around or too close to swimming pools are a big mistake. Eventhough this is a good location, I will never stay in this hotel again or at least in the club area of the hotel and nor would I reccomend it to anyone else. The smell made me very sick. Staff tried to accomodate us, but the smell permeated the hall and all of the room.
