Sheraton Society Hill

The hotel location is perfect to walk around center city Philadelphia. There are numerous excellent restaurants in Old City, Ritz movie theaters nearby, as well as unique stores in the close vicinity, along with Macy's and Liberty One Mall uptown. Parking fee was $35 per day ! In years past, it was included in the hotel price.

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.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

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

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.

Great place to stay

This hotel is beautiful, clean, friendly and located close to Old City, Philladelphia. Everything was in walking distance. The only thing that was a shock was parking at the hotel. It was $29.00 + $5.80 tax a night. There is no parking on the streets around the hotel. But once we got over the shock of the price we enjoyed our car being brought right to the right door! The personel were all happy to sever you.

will return

The hotel is located in a great part of town. Lots to do and enjoy, even if just walking around. The staff was very courteous. Our only complaint was that they put us in a room without a window. It was looking into the pool and it was very noisy as we were trying to put our toddler to sleep even past 9 pm. It also had a chlorine smell in our room. However, next time we'll just know to request a different room. I will still return to this hotel.
