We stayed here for two nights while attending a friend's wedding. If you will be visiting or attending events the University or at one of the nearby hospitals, the Sheraton is well located.
One requirement we have for rating hotels highly is access to decent restaurants nearby. The Sheraton is somewhat isolated but within walking distance of a group of student-focused restaurants. So you won't be dependent on the in-house restaurant for every meal.
The rooms are a bit dark and could use an upgrade but the staff were very helpful and pleasant.
Philadelphia's best known third wave cafe that sits on the edge of Rittenhouse square. Known for their high end coffee and focus on flavor, the lines are often long but move quickly. In a city known for its food, this is where foodies in Philly go for their coffee.
Volo serves the best coffee on Main Street in Philadelphia's historic burrough of Manayunk. They serve La Colombe coffee in the same style and on summer weekends the shop will be full of cyclists either before or after a long ride.
We're always happy to find non-Starbucks cafes that care about their coffee in small cities in the States. Sometimes it can be hit or miss and we were happy to find a good one in Syracuse.
Laura's pour over iced coffee was one of the best we've ever had.
The mix of locations is also nice with one downtown and one out near the University.
LoFo specializes in local food. They're smoothies were delicious and while they aren't cheap - they are worth getting for if you're in the mood for a healthy meal. The food was well-prepared and focused on flavor rather than portion size. We appreciated the outdoor seating on one of Syracuse's most walkable streets.
Some of the best vegan lunch options I've eaten in a long time. Worth a stop for lunch even if you're not vegan or vegetarian.
If you're looking for a lively bar with a broad list of delicious beers on tap and in bottle - Tyler's Taproom is the place to visit when you're in Carrboro. The food is pub-style with a Southern influence.
A nice place to grab coffee, breakfast, or lunch in a leafy area of Richmond.
A traditional American classic: the farm-based creamery. There are few of these left in America. What they lack in terms of creative ice cream making they make up with good quality ice cream mixed with a little nostalgia. Carolina Crunch is clearly the classic. On a warm summer day, you can't beat some sweet dairy and the rolling agricultural hills rolling off in the distance.
Arguiably Carborro's town center - Weaver Street Market is not only a grocery store but also the place where you're bound to run into someone else from town. If you want to find out what life is like in this small town that borders Chapel Hill - buy a drink or a snack and sit outside under the trees and watch the people go by.
Where Philly goes to shop, eat, and relax. On a warm sunny weekend there is no better place to see what Philly is all about than by wandering through the Square.
Great ramen in the heart of Center City. Don't expect a lot besides the 4-5 types of ramen, which they do very well. A go to when you want a warm bowl of soup.
Mission is a classy Mexican restaurant just north of Dupont Circle's northern Metro exit. We didn't find the margaritas anything to right home about, but you can't go wrong with a solid after work/after long day walking the city margarita. What was impressive, and the reason for a 4-star rating, was the baja-style fried fish tacos. Usually fish tacos in this style tend to be greasy and heavy - more like fish and chips in a tortilla - than delicious. The Mission fish tacos are delicious. Crisp and a little crunch on the outside, almost no grease, and soft and butter in the middle. I'll go back just for these.
