4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

Enjoyed my last stay at this Sheraton Imperial. This is a slightly old hotel, but everything was functional. This is close to interstate I-40, so it is easily accessible. The parking area is fairly big, and at times if you have an event at the hotel, you have to park very far down. The service was good. I had requested for a late checkout, and they gave me few extra hours. All in all I found it good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor have somewhat nicer view

I enjoyed my stay at the Sheraton Imperial. It was in a convenient location and I appreciated the free parking. The front desk was friendly and efficient and the room was clean and very comfortable, I enjoyed the food in their restaurant and found everyone who worked in the hotel to be kind and agreeable. I was disappointed that there was not an actual fitness room in the hotel but for a nominal fee, guests are granted access to a health club in the same parking lot. The free wifi was an added bonus and it was quick and reliable. I would not hesitate to stay at this location again!

Nicer than average hotel with easy access to interstate. Was kind of disappointed that room didn't have a refrigerators. While I thought the normal government rate was a value, I didn't think the upgrade to the "club level" had much value. Next time I'd skip the club level and use the savings to purchase breakfast and dinner. The staff I had contact with with helpful and the rooms were extra clean. Wifi was fast and easy to access. Everything from the bathroom to the linens and towels felt a little extra nice. Room didn't really have the best work area but was ok.

I'd go back if I was in the area.

Parking can be a little problem due to the fact that they are a Convention Center and have so many non-guest there during the day. Also parking just didn't seem to be designed for best use. .

Room Tip: 10th floor "club level" requires that you walk down steps to get to the lounge on the 9th...
