The Sheraton University city is a favorite for medical students taking Step 2 CS of the USMLE, but this hotel has much more to offer than its convenient location. Sheraton's are very much hit and miss these days, and this property gets everything right. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the air conditioners are not too noisy. The staff were also very professional. The hotel also offers a discount for students taking Step 2 CS.
The biggest oddity of the hotel was the room service situation, and this benefits the customer. You can order from the hotel during their kitchen's business hours and receive overpriced food. You also have the option, however, of ordering room service from the Axis Cafe, a 24-hour spot adjacent to the hotel. This place offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and while a small delivery fee is tacked on to every order, my breakfast omelet with toast and a large coffee only cost $11 including the cash tip I gave the delivery guy.
If you want a very relaxed morning before taking your boards, order room service from Axis the night before, get a good night's sleep, leave you car in the Sheraton garage, and walk to the test center.
