"Top-Notch Service At A Great Location", An Eventective User from Princeton, NJ
The Sheraton at Society Hill was the perfect site for our wedding. My wife and I had visited literally twenty-five different venues in and around Philadelphia, but were turned off from most of the sites either because of price, rigidity of the caterer, location or look-and-feel of the room. The Sheraton was the last site that we visited, and we almost did not stop by at all because I had stayed there as a guest a few years prior and was not impressed. However, when we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see that renovations had been made to the entire lobby, the bar and restaurant, the gym and a number of the guest rooms and suites (I understand that the ballroom is currently being redecorated). The ballroom itself is pretty standard for a hotel, though the chandeliers are stunning. As for the food, there was both quality and quantity, with a terrific cocktail hour featuring top-shelf liquor. My wife and I also were very happy to work with Dan Peterson, the event manager, who gave us excellent service before, during and after the wedding. He and all of his staff were friendly, responsive and very flexible with regards to our ever-changing needs. The price was pretty reasonable overall, and comparable to some of the other venues that we were considering (Cescaphe, Merion, Down Town Club). For us, the other key feature of the Sheraton was its location. Having the wedding at a hotel was incredibly convenient (no need for transportation to/from the venue) and, the tourist attractions in the Society Hill / Old City area allowed our out-of-town guests to make the trip into a full weekend.
