Customer service was not the issue here, but, the room was. I guess because I am a "local" with kids, I was given the crappiest room ever. First impressions were great, the lobby was clean and I had no complaints there. But, as soon as I got to the room, I was ready to leave. The room was dirty. The...

Very good location, Room for a family OK, swimming-pool closed (problem with a little kid) and the hotel offered us a little bag with chocolate and root beer; restaurant closed on this monday and we didn't know why; the valet car OK but after 6 dollars were missing (in cash quarter)

I last stayed at this hotel about a year ago and was quite disappointed. This week I had the opportunity to again stay here and was pleasantly surprised at the improvements! I found the staff at the front desk to be incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was clean as I would normally expect a Sheraton room to be. The...

We stayed at this hotel for a convention in August of 2016. This was a very luxurious hotel by our standards. We enjoyed our stay here very much. We had a great view, and room was big and very comfortable. Here's what kept me from giving an "excellent" rating: We requested a refrigerator in our reservation, it was never delivered....

The hotel itself is everything you would expect from one in its catagory although perhaps dated. Room was clean, a good size and the was bed comfortable. I'm never a fan of the shower over the bath but understand these are common in hotels of this age. The real asset of this hotel is the people that work there. All...

I have been staying at this hotel and every time I try any other hotel I check out after a day and move back to this hotel because of its service levels and attention to the customers need and they are one of the bestest in giving the SPG member recognition regardless of the level and although I am an...

My initial impression was that the hotel had a major facelift decades ago but still had nagging little problems, not the least of which being the pool being out of service. Petty stuff like the carpet in disrepair inside the door and some peeling paint on the shower ceiling. But the service really won me over (to a 4 star...

The staff is fantastic. My husband forget his shirt for the wedding we were attending and literally the staff offered their work shirts. We would late for the wedding ceremony if it wasn't for them. They couldn't have been anymore accommodating!!

This was the 3rd time we have stayed in the Sheraton Downtown and it was a little disappointing. In the past we had enjoyed the pool there but when we arrived, we found it had been drained and in need of repairs (despite confirming that it was open a day before we checked in). Our standard room was nice enough,...
