Check-in was very easy (being a member of Sheraton''s Starwoods club helped). We were given a non-smoking room on the 3rd floor of the 4 story hotel. The indoor pool and health club were also on our floor.
Our room was a fairly good size, with two very comfortable double beds, a table and chairs, a huge armoir with several drawers, a 20" TV, and a coffeemaker. The bathroom was nice and clean with plenty of towels and toiletries. There was also a mirrored closet - important for 6 girls trying to get ready at the same time.
The hotel was located in the best possible location from all I saw about Philly. We were blocks from most of the historical monuments, and South Street; yet it was a nice, clean, safe area of town and there were neat restaurants, bars, and shops within a few blocks. (Go out hotel entrance, turn Right onto 2nd Street and there''s all kinds of stuff!)
As for parking, the valet parking at the hotel was $22 a day, or $16 a day to park yourself.

From the hotel, it's a short 2-block walk to the hippest nightlife in Philly. There are plenty of bars and restaurants attracting mostly a younger crowd in their 20's and 30's, but it is also an area older couples would enjoy. There are quite a few upscale restaurants in addition to dance clubs.
During the day, the hotel is within walking distance to the major historical sites. Really, the best way to enjoy and get to know the city is to walk it.
