We were on an unofficial visit to Penn for my son. The hotel's location was prefect for that. Sheraton is always reliable, we had a very good time!

Overall a pretty ok stay. Staff and service were great, however amenities didn’t serve me so well. Pillows were way too soft, my key card stopped working an hour after I checked in.
