We stayed during New Year’s Eve weekend and we had a wonderful time. The hotel is so safe and clean. The staff was so helpful and wonderful. They were very accommodating when we asked for a later checkout and when they helped with the Club level services. The room were extremely spacious and cleaned. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. One of the better options as compared to other hotels in Philadelphia is we come go in and out of the parking facility but was only charged per day instead of each time we went in and out. The location was very convenient, outside of all the madness of downtown but close enough to walk in if we chose to. The breakfast service on the 20th floor was really good, we definitely appreciated the warm breakfast, fruit and pastries. We would definitely stay there again.

My stay at the Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel was nothing short of excellent. The location is incredibly convenient, especially if you're visiting the University of Pennsylvania or exploring the city. The staff was warm, welcoming, and attentive, making me feel right at home. The room was clean, comfortable, and well-appointed, with all the amenities I needed for a comfortable stay. The view from my room was stunning, adding an extra layer of enjoyment to my visit. What truly stood out was the hotel's commitment to guest satisfaction. They went above and beyond to make my stay memorable. The on-site dining options were convenient and offered delicious food, which was a great bonus. I would highly recommend the Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel to anyone looking for a fantastic stay in the heart of Philadelphia. It's a wonderful place to relax and explore the city's vibrant surroundings.
