Everything was fine

Clean room and was right near the hospital. Really helped while my Grandfather was getting a quadruple bypass. The room was tight but that's only because we had 2 queens.

A Great Weekend Getaway

I loved this hotel, it was great for the price we paid. The pool was on the 6th floor up over the city it was really pretty. Our room had a view of Phili and although it wasn't really in walking distance from the monuments it was in walking distance from some nice restaruants and bars. I would definitely stay here again.

I would drive to the monuments and just park and pay for the parking, walking there was too far especially in the summer. Although I did here there was a trolley so you may want to look into that in the future.

Great hotel, great location!

This was my third visit to the Sheraton. I came to see my son, who lives in West Philly and works in Old City, so the location is excellent for the both of us! We have always enjoyed our stay here and will be returning!

Very good Hotel

The staff were more than helpful in resolving issues. Beds were very comfortable. GYM Equipment was excellently maintained. Location was good for my needs. Noodle bar restaurant phenomenal food. The room was clean, the bathroom not so clean, faucet moves and should not have. The internet a bit slow. Parking is 25 a night for hotel guests, it is 20 more a day for continental breakfast. Do not offer a shuttle to the hospital for family. Did not get to the pool this time.

Nice stay

This hotel is ideal for parent/children to visit UPenn. Very convenience. The only thing I don't like is parking, you have to pay for parking, but it is common practice in East Coast.

Good Hotel,[...]

This hotel was a pretty good hotel. It was clean and quiet. However, we came with a two year old who needs to drink 3 bottles of milk a day. We brought the milk with us expecting a fridge in the room like the website states. It doesn't say "fridge available upon request." Our room did not come with a fridge and we were told there was none available in the hotel. [...] In the end, the hotel found us a fridge.[...]

Computers don't work well

I was attracted by the promise of an in-house desk computer. It was so slow that it was useless. I got nothing from it.
