                      The hotel and the city :-), the pool, the room, everything

                      Poor breakfast

                      Close to areas we wanted to visit on this trip. We were able to walk to everything quite easily. Love the Sheraton beds in all your hotels. The room size is cozy for two but would be fine for one traveler. The evening bartender for the 11 and 12th was very efficient and friendly but the next day the bartender wasn't as good.

                      Bathroom set up is awkward and required repacking everything morning and evening. Drawer space is inadequate for more than one day of travel; couldn't unpack suitcases. The limited restaurant was also problematic so we ended up only eating one breakfast in the hotel. The club room was crowded, noisy and messy so we walked in and immediately left that area.

                      The Sheraton Society Hill was very well located for accessing the centre of Philadelphia, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

                      The hotel, considering the price, lacked any feel of luxury and was most definitely a business and conference orientated hotel. There was a lot of renovation work being carried out - which meant that computer and internet facilities were not available and the lounge area was often partially or completely unavailable. The work men were excellent at not disturbing residents though. The rooms of the hotel are yet to be renovated and overall the hotel felt a little bit run down and shabby.

                      Friendly staff and conveniently located.

                      Indoor swimming pool made the entire facility ( including rooms ) smell like chlorine.

                      The beds were very comfortable and the location was great for walking to points of interest.

                      Very impersonal and business oriented. Construction going on in main lobby area all weekend.

                      According to your website, the parking was $28, we pd more than that and it added up, it might be a good idea to try and put parking into the package price, Also to be able to cancel within a certain amount of timeas we were making settlement on a new home and they moved settlement up so we could of spent a lot less and more for our home. We love the pet friendly, our darling little girls, enjoyed their first vacation, that was rather costly, but thank you, I do wish you would of keep the parking the same.

                      Pqrking Prices, other than that it was great, friendly people that work there, please valet and the people who work in the

                      Enjoyed the pool. Room very nice. Big bed. The internal courtyard/lobby area has a nice feel to it.

                      Location was great. Walking distance to all historic Philadelphia sites.

                      Air conditioning and ventilation in the hotel room was poor. No ventilation in the bathroom, which simply moved into the sleeping area. AC wouldn't go lower than 65 degrees. And the vent simply blew stuffy, humid air.

                      The staff are friendly and helpful, especially the maids and the valets. We love the downstairs lobby and the water fountain.

                      It would be so nice if the the pool area was warmer and also the water. It can get very cold in the pool area.

                      Room was comfortable and clean. Lobby was decorated beautifully for the holidays and kept well updated in design and comfort, many sofas to relax, semi private sitting rooms to relax and converse, all with a warm, inviting feel.

                      No fridge in rooms.

                      Good location.

                      The hotel was renovating at the time, and I woke up to the sounds of construction! There was no mention of this at all on Booked.net - I would've liked to know before booking that there's work being done there. I'm sure it will be fine once done, but still. Hotel staff were okay, but not particularly warm.
