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

  • 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.

    Great deals and always a nice stay!

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

  • 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.

  • 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 Davies · April 2, 2011
  • Rachel S.

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

    Rachel S. · October 15, 2011

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

    Rooms are nice. Newly renovated.

    Fola Sumpter · December 27, 2011
  • 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 Healy · December 19, 2011
  • Rachel S.

    Very comfy beds!

    Rachel S. · October 17, 2011

    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 Saul · 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 Small outdated tvs, old gym, bed bugs, and the rooms smell like cigarettes

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

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

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

    Bad housekeeping!

    Paula Sears · February 5, 2012
  • 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
  • Fernando P.

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

    Fernando Palacios · June 4, 2013
  • Chris S.

    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 Skiles · 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 Morris · May 14, 2013

    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 ...

    Reid Ramsay · January 1, 2011
  • Elizabeth

    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
  • 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 Levenberg · February 27, 2014
  • Maxine L.

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

    Maxine Levine · January 26, 2014
  • 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 Dabner · December 5, 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 Kirschner · June 12, 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
  • Andressa M.

    Amazing roof view

    Andressa Martins · 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 Mihaere · February 21, 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.

    Tanya Hutchins · January 18, 2013
  • 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
  • Jack L.

    back for a second year in a row! Great rooms, comfy beds and big TVs.

    Jack Lindberg · December 8, 2011
  • Billy D. H.

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

    Avoid this place!

    Eric Glazer · June 7, 2011
  • Ken H.

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

    Ken H · May 17, 2011
  • George R.

    AC is loud but definitely works. Free in-room ATT wifi after 11pm for iPhone. Doesn't seem to work during the day

    George Rodriguez · July 25, 2010

    Good martinis at the main bar!

  • Lindsay T.

    Very kind front desk staff. Lovely lobby and convenient location that's not in the middle of everything. Close enough to walk around downtown. However, my bed linens were a little stained.

    Lindsay Toussaint · January 15

    Paid WiFi here seems to be reasonable. The expected speed is 3.9 Mbps as of December 27, 2014 (crowd-tested, not certified) Read more
