This hotel is in a great location for visiting Philadelphia. Everything is in easy walking distance. The rooms are clean and spacious, the parking is convenient and the staff are excellent. Brandon at Check in was extremely helpful and pleasant. The buffet breakfast is a winner. The omelette is the best ever and the guy making them is hilarious. Well...

Great location for the NFL Draft. Within walking District of the venue. Rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Get a higher floor for the view. Restaurants were good and friend and quick service. Perfect for my son and I.

I recently chaperoned a team of 13 high school girls to a tournament in Philly from Phoenix. I have never been to Philly but wanted to provide as much sightseeing and enjoyable dining experience as possible given our hectic scheduled.

Team is great but insfrastructure is OLD. Air conditioning is noisy and badly located in the room blowing air in your face, windows are dirty depriving you from the amazing views of Philly. The property should be at the end of the brand contract, needs to be umdated urgently.

This is my second time at this hotel in 9 months. In July 2016 all the staff were helpful and professional inspire the hectic nature and extraordinary demands during the Democratic Convention.

Such nice people working at this sheraton hotel.... but the rooms are pretty crappy. Old carpet, hasn't been remodeled in a good long while. The convention center and staff were very attentive and the food was great too.

The room was clean and quiet. No fridge or microwave was disappointing. The cleaning staff did not restock the room after day one and I had to request new towels and supplies (I was sharing a room with another individual and we were not family) Coffee was also not restocked each day.

I am ashamed to be an SPG member after my stay at this hotel. Mary, the concierge, was the only thing that was great about this facility. She went above and beyond to help me coordinate meals and dinner reservations for our large group. Beyond that....it's terrible. Poor housekeeping, rooms with carpet stains, stained mattresses, broken floor lamps, etc, etc....
