Sheraton University City

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 14, 2006

Sheraton University City is near U Penn, with many parts of the university within walking distance. The hotel isn't especially special, with about average service and not-too-large rooms. The main reason to stay here would probably be convenient access to U Penn. It is also able to walk from the hotel to downtown in half an hour.

Directions: University City

I really dislike cookie cutter chain hotels, but the excellent location of the Sheraton University City Hotel on the U of Penn's campus made it the best choice for my stay. Mother's Day weekend this year I stayed in the city with my family for a special event on Penn's campus. With the Sheraton there was no suprises, I got exactly what expected-- a dull but clean room with a bathroom, nothing more. For a whopping $190 a night (the going rate in this part of the city), I was disappointed-- but I normally stay in B&Bs for half as much with twice as many ammenities. On the positive side, the staff was very friendly and courteous, parking was included with no charge for in and out, the beds and linens were first-rate, check out and check in was a breeze and the location is excellent(!!!) A standard room does not come with any extras though- no mints or your pillow or complimentary coffee. The rooms are very small and there is no room for a roll-away bed in a room with two doubles. Closet space is also quite limited and the bathrooms are small. The room also did not have a balcony. The hotel does have a pool, but in early May it is still closed. All in all, I would not stay here again unless I absolutely had to because the value is extremely poor.

Directions: Right on Penn's campus. Excellent, excellent location!
