    Old School Comfort

    by

    There's no getting around it - the Sheraton is an old hotel. This particular establishment was probably opened back in the good old days when Damascus was Soviet in its outlook and few hotels were available for non-Arab guests. That doesn't mean that the hotel is not comfortable, just that you shouldn't expect to find many luxuries or comforts that are ultra-modern. It still has flat-screen TVs and wireless internet, like most other Sheratons. The fixtures are a bit outdated, though, and the carpet and walls could do with a make-over. Still, the staff here is exceptionally friendly and service is quite good. The hotel forms part of a compound in which there are car rental agencies, a few restaurants and a disco. There's no difficulty in getting in and out of the compound, but you are likely to find, if you're taking taxis, that the cab drivers won't want to bother going through the security gate to bring you right up to the door. I didn't use the sports facilities at the hotel, but I was able to see that they are fairly modern, if small.

    Unique Quality: Nothing about the hotel is outstanding, but at the same time it offers a level of comfort and convenience that is difficult to complain about. The hotel is a bit far from the old city, but you can still reach it walking in about 25 or 30 minutes, which isn't all that bad if you're in town when the weather is nice and you're looking to see more of the newer parts of the city.

    Directions: Across from the Ministry of Defense and beside Damascus University

  • Sheraton Hotel

    by

    I stayed in a suite at the Sheraton in the spring of 2006. There was a large boquet of fresh flowers in the room and a plate of fresh fruit was delivered shortly after my arrival. The mini-bar had a large selection of items including a disposable camera and cigarettes. There is an ATM in the lobby which allows you to withdraw local currency. The business-centre was top-notch. I would recommend the Sheraton as a fine place to stay.

    Unique Quality: There is a nice pool - but I didn't have a chance to use it. There was a private party by the pool one night with music and dancers that we could watch from our windows.

    Lavish accommodation

    by

    At USD220, the Sheraton Damasucus had better be good. The staff are helpful, the rooms well appointed, but with no in-room Internet. There is a business centre in the lobby. Due to the violence in Lebanon, a CNN team had commandeered the computers but were giving them up to guests on request.

    The hotel was besieged with (obviously well-heeled) "refugees" and were coping very well with a spike in occupancy from less than 50% to over 100% in two days.

    Directions: In the western end of the city, nowhere near the Omayad (or Ummayad) Mosque, which is in the centre of the Old City.

    Damascus's Creepy, Smelly, Overpriced alternative

    by

    Oi Veh.
    Avoid the Sheraton at ALL cost. And believe me it will Cost you!! Run over to the Meridian hotel and escape this horror story of a hotel. It's creepy, smelly, filled with lurking people and generally . I was here for 3 days and it was like a month.

    Unique Quality: The unique quality of this hotel is the exit. It's the best feature of this place.

Surprise visit

"Overland from Beirut"

Two days of Israeli bombing of Beirut forced business contacts to cancel meetings, so there was no point - and possibly some added difficulties later - in staying. I rented a car to the border post at Masnaa, passing the picturesque Mount Lebanon town of Broumanna then through the rather alien-looking Bekaa Valley. In Jdeideh, on the Syrian side, a taxi took me to the lavish Sheraton Damascus. There, the staff recommended the neighborhoods of Casaa and Bab Touma ... on the edge of the old city.
