    The location was good. There was a special for parking which was cheaper than expected.

    The staff was alittle brief when we arrived

    Good

    The restaurant staff was very welcoming. The bed was super comfortable. The fan was fantastic at creating white noise/great sleeping environment

    Room not cleaned until nearly 7pm the second day. Had to wait in line & ask for a receipt. Couldn't combine reservations. Food definitely did not live up to menu descriptions. HVAC system in conf room A was horrible - hot and loud

    The feather beds are thier only saving grace!

    The hotel is old and in need of a makeover! Dark and dingy hallways and rooms were not any better, not a value for your money!

    Good standard as usual, good location near city sights.

    Breakfast was very poor - not usual standard for Sheraton hotels, pillows were uncomfortable.

    It was utterly disappointing. I will drop a note to their GM to get them improve their service.

    1) Front Desk service poor 2) Front office manager recovery poor 3) Concerige was excellent 4) Location was good That about it, consider twice before u book.

    Good

    The view from my room (17th St side) of the cathedral, the Franklin Institute, the Free Library, and the Philadelphia Art Museum was spectacular. The location on Logan Circle and near City Hall was quite convenient for exploring the City Center, Convention Center Area, Rittenhouse Square Area, Museums, and not far from river trail.

    The hotel is showing some age, but that is reflected in the price. Large hotel with lots of people. Parking was overcrowded and inadequate.

    Comfortable, well appointed, nice and welcoming atmosphere in the lobby.

    There was a long queue at check-in and I was told that the room I had reserved was not available, even at 4.30 on a Saturday afternoon. I had just come off a long transatlantic flight and had planned a business meeting soon after arrival and therefore needed to freshen up. The hotel staff member said he would call my mobile when a room became available but he had to ask a member of staff for the international dialling code. I insisted he tried my phone before I left the reception desk but my phone did not ring as the code was wrong. He then immediately gave me a room. As this room had been available all along, why did he not give it to me on arrival?

    Coonvenient location

    The facility is old and not well maintained compared to several other Sheraton locations we have stayed. This was the only hotel I have ever been to that has a door that would not close or open properly. One has to literally force it open or close.

    I was disappointed with the pool area. A lot of water puddles in random areas. My things got wet and I was stepping in puddles. And there were no towels when we arrived. I had to walk all the way back to the front desk. Towels were sent down quickly, but it was a hike and a half carrying a toddler to have to do that. Also thought breakfast price was extremely high and food adequate. Staff were great. Phillips restaurant very good.

    Excellent seafood restaurant Great view from room 1425 Staff very helpful

    Comforters were a bit lumpy. Heat very noisy, although warm. Expensive breakfast buffet, with minimal al a carte choices.

    Service recovery by giving us a breakfast voucher was appreciated. Ammenities were good. Phillips Restuarant I would recommend.

    Had issues with bookling.com in that our reservation was not at the hotel. It took us approximately 35 minutes to get registered.
