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. Mary was extraordinary in accommodating our bus tours, dining and over stay in Philly. Mary provides her full attention while...

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. The check in desk staff, security and maid staff were professional and helpful today. However the front desk staff today was rude, unhelpful and unprofessional. Due to the...

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. The hotel was quiet though the elevators were...

Stayed at this hotel about a month ago during a frigid weekend in March. We had booked a group block as we were traveling together as a big group and the representative who helped us, Amy Croke, was amazing and accommodating the during the whole process. She even helped us book a meeting room for our group. She was super...

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....
