    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!

    Philadelphia is known as America's birthplace. The declaration of independence and constitution were both signed here. I arrived on Monday and decided to have a break from cultural activities after Washington, so I went shopping.

    ... so filled with its exploits and symbolism I could not help but be little moved. George Washington's House provided an interesting platform from which the great General and First President was examined, particularly with regard to his own attitudes to slavery. Independence Hall was a nice homage to the process of creation, even the architecture underscored the values of the founding fathers - order and symmetry. A particular highlight was ...

    We ate at a place that had lovely quilts nearby. We tried snapping turtle soup as part of the meal, quite nice, a meaty broth.
    Then we drove to Hershey Park for the Sunset session. Lots of rollers. First Fran and I did a water ride that soaked us, Stace turned back when she saw how wet you got at the end, it was basically straight up and straight down [ not such a good idea that I had a white top and ...

    ... buried, including benjamn franklin. The last stop was where everyone who was too cheap to pay to get in was throwing pennies onto benjamins grave through the gate for good luck. Nothing against cheap people depending on what you're being frugal about, but it was still true. I asked the guide "why are people throwing pennies on his grave when Abraham is on the penny?" she said she didn't know but they had several guesses why: 1. Stems from a Jewish tradition of putting rocks on
