The staff was very accommodating, the gentleman in the morning who gave me my breakfast was the best part of my stay. Check in and out was easy. For the price of the room and the amount of times I have stayed at BonVoy locations i would have expected more than 1 towel and a small refrigerator. The ice machine was located on the 19th floor while I was on the 18th and yet no signs telling me where. The floor I was on smelled like smoke also. When i booked this room it said breakfast was included for 1. Which was fine because it was going to be for my son anyway as I don’t eat breakfast. But i was told AFTER i had to call downstairs for the breakfast (due to covid restrictions) that i had to pay almost 16$ for poorly scrambled eggs and hash browns that tasted like cardboard, they also did not have any orange juice. I’ve stayed at many hotels in Philadelphia including the Kimpton Polomar and The Marriot, i decided to give the Sheraton a chance but i don’t think I’ll be returning.

24 mom getaway from Scranton first time over night in philly . Not sure I wanna go back!! The hotel is beautiful and the man at the front desk(I’m horrible with names) he was awesome and gave great hospitality and conversation. I loved that you needed your key for the elevator ( very confusing at first ) . I wasn’t very satisfied with the cleaning of my room nor the inspection. I have worked at hotels and I know how it works. The bathroom had rust in it and the beds were not properly made and to top it off only one bed had clean sheets. I had to call maintenance because the shower head was broken and sprayed the bathroom. All these things should have been checked and taken care of before my arrival and it was disappointing as a guest to pay for something that wasn’t worth the price. The view in some rooms is beautiful but the location takes away from your comfort. The whole floor smelled of tobacco and marijuana. I’m definitely a smoker and not complaining but they should just make certain floors for certain guest.
