    $5 parking lot across the street

  • AT&T

    Another great reason to stay here: AT&T Wi-Fi is one of the many amenities here for guests. It’s fast and easy to connect.

    If you are thinking about staying here...don't.

    Great deals and always a nice stay!

    This hotel just barely meets the minimum expected service levels. Make it a 2nd or 3rd choice.

    Eric T. · November 16, 2011
  • Aimée J.

    No refrigerator or microwave which is pretty standard these days. Parking is $38!!! Across the street just $18. Lobby is under construction so not that impressed.

    Aimée J. · June 14, 2013
  • Rachel S.

    $20 a day to park here as a guest?? What kind of bs is that?? Grrr

    Rachel S. · October 15, 2011
  • Flo D.

    Love the hotel, but would it kill them to put in a mini fridge and a microwave? Not everyone wants to eat downstairs. I would definitely stay here again. Who gives a crap about a flat screen?

    Flo D. · April 2, 2011
  • Fola S.

    Rooms are nice. Newly renovated.

    Fola S. · December 27, 2011

    Very comfy beds!

    Requested a late checkout and the staff extended my checkout by two hours without any additional charge!

    Enjoy a great local craft beer at Four Points with Best Brews®. We're featuring Yuengling Lager.

    Not a fan of the house keeping.....

    Sandee C. · February 22, 2012

    Bad housekeeping!

    Paula S. · February 5, 2012
  • Patrick H.

    Really like this place. Good folks and reasonable for the quality. Only complaint: don't charge for wifi. That's just effing greedy guys. Internet is on par with hot running water. Seriously.

    Patrick H. · December 19, 2011
  • Philip S.

    The bagels are only 2 bucks and you get as much cream cheese as you want! Great way to start your day in Philly!

    Philip S. · August 24, 2011
  • Ryan P.

    Horrible hotel overall. Awful front desk service, slow, and disgusting. Don't stay here it's miserable. Small outdated tvs, old gym, bed bugs, and the rooms smell like cigarettes

    Ryan P. · June 29, 2011
  • Fernando P.

    They forgot to renovate the club lounge.... and the rooms :)

    Fernando P. · June 4, 2013

    Put the going green door hang on your door know for a $5 food/drink coupon. I used it for Starbucks downstairs every morning.

    Chris S. · June 3, 2013
  • Christella M.

    The room seems nice and the guy at the front desk gave me free wifi just had to ask :-)

    Christella M. · May 14, 2013
  • David N.

    Don't pay the $38 a day parking. City garage across the street is $5 a day.

    The purple PHLASH trolley runs Fri, Sat & Sun from 10-6 pm May-October 28, 2012. Just head to stop 5, buy a $2 ticket & you'll be on your way to seeing Philadelphia's attractions and museums. Read more

    Not a bad hotel! I would stay here again ...

    Very nice, recently remodeled hotel with a friendly staff. Very easy walking distance to Verizon Tower or Comcast Center. And they allow pets!

    Elizabeth · December 10, 2010
  • Tara C.

    Became an SPG member & received free wifi. Flat screen TV, comfy bed & signed up to not receive housekeeping every day in lieu of 500 SPG points each day you opt out.

    Tara C. · September 25, 2013
  • Marc K.

    First they checked me into an occupied room and then the room smelled like a cab with 50 dangling air fresheners. Not quite a shithole, but staring at the precipice.

    Marc K. · June 12, 2013
  • Andressa M.

    Amazing roof view

    Andressa M. · May 7, 2013
  • LuckypooZa !.

    I arrived at 11am and was happily able to get an early check in. room was obviously remodeled since some of the other comments, fridge would have been nice. I got a super rate online so no complaints.

    LuckypooZa !. · April 1, 2013
  • Peter M.

    Very helpful front desk... So far they were very helpful in a tricky situation at 11pm.

    Peter M. · February 21, 2013
  • Kara P.

    The gym has been recently renovated (big improvement) but now it feels like a hot yoga class in there...soooo hot and humid!!

    Kara P. · March 13, 2012
  • Chris B.

    Good hotel, but you have to pay for wifi :(

    Chris B. · January 8, 2012
  • Charlotte L.

    Renovated room, amazing view, my wifi was comped AND my room was upgraded - why? I WAS POLITE even though I had a shitty travel day.

    Charlotte L. · December 27, 2011
  • Billy D. H.

    Not the best by any means. Half clean ....old...Motel 6 Wannabe!!!!/

    Billy D. H. · November 1, 2011
  • KHS

    Still loud ac but it works fine. Now w flat screen tv. Location great for walking around city. Lounge on 26th floor for you frequent travellers

    KHS · August 2, 2011
  • Eric G.

    Avoid this place!

    Eric G. · June 7, 2011
  • Ken H.

    None of the rooms have been renovated. Below typical Sheraton standard

    Ken H. · May 17, 2011
  • Pratul S.

    Good martinis at the main bar!

    Pratul S. · January 13, 2010
  • Nik L.

    These are not brand standard beds. If it weren't for the typical Sheraton toiletries, I'd think I was at an unrenovated Choice hotel, but paying twice the price. Avoid.

    Nik L. · February 27
  • Maxine L.

    Not close to the convention centre and not really worthy of the name "Sheraton"

    Maxine L. · January 26
  • David S.

    This place is a dump in every way imaginable. Rooms have odors, service is unorganized. Dirty

    David S. · December 15, 2013
  • Dapper D.

    Great service! Attentive, polite and prompt customer service.

    Dapper D. · December 5, 2013
  • B R.

    Staff was accommodating, let us check in a little early and have us free wifi. Was a great deal and very close to the business district. A little old, but clean and comfy. Nice tv!

    B R. · December 4, 2013
  • Roxy R.

    Don't lose your blue parking garage ticket. They gave me a hard time leaving even though I never took car out and I paid at front desk.

    Roxy R. · September 2, 2013
  • Roxy R.

    Amazing staff! The ac in my unit was making a loud, metal noise. Engineer came up to check it out and front desk immediately moved me to another room and even helped me move my stuff.

    Roxy R. · August 31, 2013
  • Karalyn S.

    Good price for the area, very comfortable, and they have a beautiful pool and fitness center. Would definitely stay here again.

    Karalyn S. · June 16, 2013
  • Rick P.

    AVOID THIS HOTEL! If my company didn't book this CHEAP FLEABAG ... Rude staff, dirty old rooms. My first room was facing a wall and on the roof level, reassigned by vending/ice machine and noise.

    Rick P. · June 8, 2013
  • Stephen P.

    Watch out for the noisy building site across the street...May 2013

    Stephen P. · May 16, 2013
  • Alex C.

    Great rate if you work for Comcast. Great service. Renovation is slowing improving the look. Housekeeping has improved but has a way to go. Gluten Free Beer (Redbridge) at the lobby bar!

    Alex C. · February 26, 2013
  • Tanya H.

    Newly renovated rooms with flat screen TVs. WiFi comped for our conference. Great view if downtown. Only things missing are the fridge and microwave.
