Four Points By Sheraton Philadelphia Airport
Travel Blogs from Philadelphia
... I couldn't get to Ohio from Portland instead I had to go to Philadelphia to get there. So I stopped off in Philadelphia long enough for a Philly cheese steak roll - surprisingly good considering the ingredients are cheapest cuts of a cow you can get away with calling steak and a liquid version of the plastic cheese you put in burgers. Then I headed off to Akron, ...
... I got an apology and a refund for the night... I liked that I remained calm, rational and reasonable... a new experience for me! The rest of my day was spent with a fellow traveller from Australia (I don't know how I didn't mention cricket!). We wondered around this most unusual city - it's hard after such a short time to get a grasp of what I'm seeing and feeling but there is definite cultural diversity that commonly sticks to distinct geographical areas ...
... thing). This was made particularly memorable by a guy who was begging for any money or food or anything.... he gave a really good speech and we all felt super awkward and sorry for him, but weren't going to give him anything. And then some guy offers him some Doritoes and the beggar turns to him and says "actually I'm not that crazy about Doritoes' we were all laughing so much - apparently it's "something about the crunch."
I had no idea where we ...
... I saw noting the original tomb where Washington was buried while the more substantial tomb was being built. At the tomb, once again, I found myself alone, well almost, there is a tour guide there at all times. He didn't seem to mind that I just sat in a bench nearby paying my respects to the Founding Father of all Founding Fathers. The Father of our Country. An appropriate, but not ostentatious gravesite for he and Martha.
... the long flight, which left at 2030 Eastern Time.
Although we tried to sleep, none of us was really able to do more than doze off for a few minutes at a time. Whether that was because of the noise, the cramped quarters, or because we were excited no one knew. But we made it through and the flight landed about an hour early.

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points By Sheraton Philadelphia Airport
I recently made the fatal error of staying at the Sheraton Hotel at Philadelphia International Airport. It appears that my favorite hotel chain has now decided to aim for the lower end of the market, and have decided NOT to treat their Platinum guests with the amenities to which they are used.
Stayed here in order to catch early flight out of Philly. My initial impression of the lobby was not favorable. The bar is located very close to the front doors. Therefore I was greeted by cigarette smoke and men cheering at TV screens. I thought for a second that I walked into a sports bar. The front desk help was begrudgingly adequate; and explained the validated parking to me as if I were an idiot--maybe that was because no one offered to validate my parking for me; and I pestered them to do so. The whole reason I stayed there was to take advantage of their park-for-free-and-fly-away policy. (Turns out no one was even at the ticket booth when I returned 4 days later, so the validated-ticket business was fairly unnecessary.) One positive about the lobby was that it had a computer with internet access, although one guest hogged it for quite some time.
Stayed at the Sheraton Four Points as we had an early flight on May 1.
I was supposed to stay at the Sheraton Society Hill in downtown Philadelphia, but my assistant put me here instead. Never stayed at a Four Points before but I figured, what the heck, it's a Sheraton. I checked in at 3:00 PM only to find my room wasn't ready. No big deal, so I went to the bar area to have a drink instead, except there was no bartender to greet me or make me a drink. I asked the lady at the front desk and she advised that the bartender was next door working at the Sheraton Suites and that he won't be coming in until 5:00. So I just sat in the lobby and waited and waited for my room to be ready.
Stayed one night at the Four Points by the Philadelphia airport. The only truly nice thing about the whole stay was the nice shuttle driver that took me to the hotel from the airport. All other staff were at best indifferent and some were surly. The woman at check in mumbled every word so quietly that I had to keep asking her to repeat herself, and she never looked up at me. A few minutes later I returned to the desk to ask a question and this woman and her colleague were discussing how few hours were possible for a shift, and the colleague looked up at me after a minute and said "do you mind?" as though I was eavedropping.
Very nice airport hotel
I thought that this hotel was above average for its price (around 100$). I also stayed at an 80$ hotel in the area, and this was well worth the added cost. The room was very clean and had pleasant furniture. The airport shuttle was by demand, so I only had to wait about 5 minutes. The only weak point was the service, which was a bit curt.
Sheraton 4 Points at the Airport
This is a very nice reasonably priced hotel in a prime location. The rooms are clean, spacious, and decorated attractively. The staff is pleasant and accomodating. I plan to stay here again.
Good to rest your head, nothing else
Was in a room with an adjoining door, but didn't know those guests - could hear every word of their conversation. Could hear their shower running.
At 12:45AM, while I was asleep, a man enters my room. He apologizes and says he has the wrong room. Front desk calls up in three minutes and asks when I checked in. Not only did they wake me up by sending a man into my room, they call me and wake me up again to ask when I checked in, as if accusing me of squatting there!
I'd stay there again, if it were the only option around.
I have never actually stayed at this hotel, but my daughter is there right now for her second week of training with an airline. Every time I call the hotel, day or evening, the phone rings anywhere from 20 to 60 times before someone picks up! When my daughter arrived last week, the hotel's records had her arriving the next day. Even though the tab was being picked up by the airline that sent her, they gave her a hard time and insisted that she "give them all her money" before they allowed her to have a room for the night - this AFTER her employer called to clarify the situation. They told her she could have her money back the next morning if they got it straightened out! In the meantime, she literally had no money. The next day in class, the instructor asked if anyone came in the night before and if so, did it go smoothly with the hotel? There were two girls - the other girl was told "No problem, go to your room and we will straighten it out tomorrow" and she was given a voucher for a free breakfast. I sent a Fedex package that was essential for my daughter to receive. It was signed for at the front desk at 3:30, but at 4:30 when my daughter went to pick it up, they claimed never to have received it. They still haven't found it.
