Directions to the Hotel (Courtesy of Bill Weakley)
If you are driving to the Philly Show, the Hotel gives you an address for
the Hotel but not where you need to park.
Given that the area of the Hotel is full of one way grid streets and a diagonal or two thrown in to boot, this can result in your driving around for quite a while, always able to see the hotel, but not seeing the parking entrance.
If you want to drive to the parking Lot, set the address on your GPS to
1540 Spring Street, Philadelphia 19102. This will take you where you connect to 16th Street (a one way going North), Turn North and on your left is the Parking entrance. SIMPLE Check it out on Mapquest and do the Satellite View and you can see that gets you to the Garage and where YOUR CAR wants to be.
I have for several years told the Sheraton Concerige Desk and Manager about this issue, and they nod and agree, and say, YES we will put the Hotel Garage Address on the web site to eliminate the confusion and they never do. So here is the nitty gritty on not getting lost. Do not want to park at the Hotel, the directions are still good as at Spring and 16th is a parking lot as well-just across from the Hotel.
