    Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill Hotel

    Great Service and Great Location

    from

    We stayed at the Sheraton for New Year's Eve and had a great time. All the staff, from bellmen to front desk to concierge, were very friendly and helpful. And you can't beat the location...walking distance to nearly everything you'd want to see.

    Plus, perhaps the best hair dryer I've ever used in a hotel room!

    Superb Location

    from

    Stayed here 5th & 5th November. Had a very pleasant room - inside view.

    Superb location. Convention on at time so it was very busy. Had a drink in the bar and the bar tender was so miserable - I note this has been commented on before. Overall very happy with stay and would stay again.

    Nice overall

    from

    On a very busy weekend we were able to get a nice room at a very good price. Room was large, clean and bed was very comfortable. Ate in the restaurant and found the food and service was good. We turned in at 12:00 and at 1:30 AM some nit-wit apparently pulled the fire alarm...

    everyone got out orderly then staff informed us all was well. Didn't realize I could have paid $12 just up the street to park my car; it must be the same lot the hotel uses for $22. Anyway we have always found Sheraton pretty good value would stay here again

    Do not go to the bar !!!!

    from

    The hotel is above average and is in a great location to explore the old part of Philly. and also South Street is close to hand. The hotel is very clean and the staff more than helpfull. The rooms were cleaned daily and are of a high quality. The bar prices are very very expensive $16.00 for a Baileys and a Bud !!!, It was cheaper in New York. Would recomend the hotel If you are in Philly you must "Ride the Duck"

    Great lunch at Society Hill

    from

    It is a small place on the corner of 3rd and Chestnut; not w/c accessible. If that's not a problem, the food is quite good with a pleasant presentation. You can get a steak sandwich topped with coleslaw, a Cobb salad, or spicy chicken wings (mild) to name a few. We liked them all!

    Typical Overrated Big Hotel Chain

    from

    Our family stayed here recently to enjoy the Philadelphia historic area. The place was clean enough but the service was poor and the rooms overpriced. Next time we will look for a smaller hotel or B&B.

    Ok, but better hotels in area

    from

    My family stayed at the Sheraton when they came to town for my wedding.

    The location is great, but that's about the nicest thing I can say. The rooms are decent but nothing to brag about. My parents didn't get their room cleaned for two days, even though they had the "clean room" sign up and complained to the desk twice. We went to "The Wooden Nickel" (the lobby bar) for drinks and the bar tender was miserable. There was a large group staying at the hotel and were running up and down the halls at all hours. Although my sister-in-law complained (she got free breakfast), the hotel did nothing to keep the guests quiet. When I called to be connected to my parents room, I usually had to call two or three times for somebody to answer. The Sheraton is not the worst place, but you can do so much better. If you're looking for a hotel in this area, I would suggest the Omni at Independence Park.

    Sheraton Society Hill and Historic District

    from

    I cannot say enough about the excellent stay we had at the Sheraton Society Hill July 2-4, 2003. The hotel is beatiful and well-maintained by the courteous staff. Our room was spacious and the bed was probably the most comfortable I have ever had in a hotel. Our stay was made more pleasurable by the convenience of a restaurant, bar, and small gift shop with sundries inside the hotel. The Sheraton Society Hill is just off Walnut Street midway between Independence Mall and South Street. It is very near Penn's Landing with its varied entertainment. Historic City Tavern is just around the corner and the Old Bookbinders Resturant (now closed for renovation) is on an adjacent street. We really enjoyed riding the amphibious DUCK that tours the historic area and goes into the Delaware River. This is a fun ride for the whole family. It really quacked us up! You will not regret your stay at this pleasant, quiet hotel in the heart of Philadelphia's historic area.

    Sheraton has no respect for guests

    from

    This was the worst hotel experience my wife and I could have ever had.

    We prepaid to reserve a room here two weeks earlier and expected a nice night away. I called early the afternoon of the day of our reservation and advised we would be there around 11:30 pm; the person I spoke with was polite. When we showed up the night manager told us that the previous shift gave our room away and they had nothing but sofa bed conference rooms; another couple was there who just flew in to town and also lost their room. They overbook and then charge for the room anyway then make you fight for your money back. I will never stay with a Sheraton again.

    Service, Service, Service!

    from

    We spent two nights and almost three days at the Sheraton Society Hill. Checked in, took a walk down to Penns Landing...soooo close. Dinner at the finest Italian restaurant, "Sfizzio". Seafood and pasta was wonderful. All historical sites are within walking distance! Atmosphere of safety prevails at all times of the day or evening. Bellboys and other staff more than helpful with questions..Ask them! They have the answers for you to save money and best places to go. Movies that are in theaters are available in your room for a minimum charge too! Pizza room service too! Would love to go back again!

    ... were in cabs and not the bus made me wonder how insulated these nicer neighborhoods were from the more crime-ridden, violent Philly I had heard so much about but had not seen.
    Got off at Front and Market, made my way over to Walnut St. Walked down several quiet blocks. More of the very nice colonial style architecture I had seen before. Nice parks, the Walnut Street theater. Very serene area. Made my way back to my hotel further down Walnut ...

I miss exploring and discovering and being active all day long rather than sitting at a desk in front of a computer.

    We almost missed the plane

    A travel blog entry by starlagurl on Oct 11, 2010

    Our plane ticket didn´t say what time we had to get on the plane, it only said the time that the plane was leaving.

    We ordered an ice cream from Wendy´s and sat around in the food court. Suddenly we heard our names on the intercom, so we quickly ran and got to the gate. We weren´t the last ones though, so it wasn´t so embarrassing.

    Some stupid guy stole the seat beside me that was supposed to be empty. I told the stewardess and she said there was nothing she could do.

    Linda had a real hassle on this tour with the accent of the guide. She gave up half way thought and just told me to translate the whole thing to her when I get a chance.....another classic.
