Verified Reviews of Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Location. Large Mini Suite. Excellent Staff."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Best possible location near Univ. Penn Hospital making travel to and from very easy. Lots of good restaurants in walking distance and proximity to Center City by car also very easy. Great staff. Room finishes are not luxurious, but the rooms are clean and functional. Access to the Club Lounge and Parking Garage really made our 6 week stay great. Would definitely come back again if we needed to.

"Excellent for Group Trips!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I recently traveled to Philadelphia with 36 students and could not have picked a better hotel! The location was amazing and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were VERY clean and the beds were probably some of the best I've ever slept in! Don't even think twice: THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO STAY WHEN IN PHILADELPHIA!

"Great Location and On-site Parking"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The only downside was my room was located right in front of the elevators, housekeeping room and ice machine. Very noisy. Should remind employees there are people sleeping at 8 am and they should not congregate in those areas to talk. Ice machine noisy. Luckily I could control the fan and drown out the noise. Location great, onsite parking easy and room very nice. Love the pillows.
