Fodor's Review

Although it's a popular convention hotel, this hotel also caters to both business and leisure travelers. Rooms, decorated in beige and dark blue, feature oversize desks, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and Starbuck's coffee. The hotel also features an indoor pool and a business center with six spacious work stations. Phillips Seafood offers upscale dishes as well as more casual fare.

Sheraton Philadelphia City Center Review

My family and I stayed here earlier this month and we had a great experience. The rooms were very nice, the staff very helpful and courteous, and the location was perfect for our needs. If I have one complaint, it is that the lights on the floors where the guest rooms are located should have brighter lights and the selection of channels available on the room TV's should be increased. Other than that, I enjoyed staying there.
