    Very nice high-rise convention hotel. It meets all the basic requirements for comfortable business travel. My only big complaint is location. It's only 2 blocks from the convention center, but in an area that feels like downtown is tapering off. I really enjoy being in the heart of things in Philly and this feels off center. The height of the building and going up and down the elevators adds to this. Great place to have a meeting, but I'd likely choose something more hip and central for a leisure visit.

    This is hotel is huge. First things first, the customer service is awesome here. As soon as I walked in, the staff was all: “how can I help you?” And they were actually really helpful. It’s located in a weird corner of the city, but you’ll have no problem getting a cab – the valet will take care of that for you. It’s a Sheraton, so I guess these are things one should expect. The rooms are spotless, and the view from the room I was in (24th floor) overlooked the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, which I enjoyed gawking at. The fitness room is fully equipped with an outdoor pool attached. Overall, I think it’s a nice place to stay where all of your hotel needs will be met by the eager staff.

    Beautiful hotel near Love Park. Very business like, but comfortable and very spacious. I love the swimming pool and the business services. Perfect for a work trip, but not as ideal if you've come to town to see the historic sites.
