Staff is excellent
We were in the area to check out the local universities and chose this hotel because of it's proximity to Drexel, Penn and the subway. The parking garage is convenient and the location was great for our purpose, but the real star was the front desk staff. I've never been at a hotel with friendlier or more helpful staff. Because of them, I will absolutely stay here again when I'm in the area.

Meh
My flight was canceled and this was the only hotel I could find a room. I was grateful for that, but after the room availability there is not much else I can say that puts a smile on my face. It was a hot evening, the air conditioning did not work, the TV did not work, and the bedside lamp also did not work. As it was already late and I had to get up early to catch my rescheduled flight, I did not bother to notify the front desk as I knew this would only keep me up even later waiting for the repairs. The next morning at check out I was asked how my stay was and I identified the problem is outlined above. I did not receive an apology or any offer of compensation. The only thing the front desk did was hai a taxi for me.

Convenient to CHOP but overall, a slightly dated hotel. Beds were a little too soft, bathroom was ok. Functional and clean, just nothing special.

Never again.
Disgusting peeling wallpaper, popcorn ceilings, chipped furniture, looks like someone tried to pry our door open. Noisy wall air conditioning unit who knows how old. Trash under the bed. Our room wasn't made up until 4pm. Sheraton needs to invest some money here. It's shameful. Pictures are included.
