I stayed at this fine property with my family for Thanksgiving. The location is excellent and the staff was helpful and pleasant despite working on the holiday. Parking is conveniently located next door and access in and out was easy. A pleasant place to stay when visiting Philadelphia. Highly recommended

I frequent the Sheraton Philadelphia City once a month. Each time I visit, I am sure to be greeted with a smile and a spirited "hello" by receiving agent Ron. Whether checking me in or simply offering service/support, he consistently helps me to feel as though my patronage is appreciated. Both he and Brie recently proved to be engaging and...
