I travel to Philadelphia for business often and stay at this hotel whenever I do. The staff knows how to treat and greet guests. Highpoints for me are the beds, the staff and the breakfast (they do serve healty options). The only lowpoint is that the gym is small and can get crowded on weekday mornings.

I travel to Philadelphia about 2x a month for business and I generally always stay at the Sofitel. I feel so spoiled there. Every member of the staff makes an effort to make you feel welcomed. The rooms are very nice and I really appreciate the robes and the shower (real glasses in tile shower). The beds are hire comfortable... More

The Rittenhouse Sq proximity is perfect and the quality and cleanliness of furnishings very impressive, especially the amazing bedding and bath ammenities. The staff is incredible and totally dedicated to customer satisfaction and to make my stay even more enjoyable I was upgraded to a much appreciated suite. If you are headed to Philadelphia, Mpls, NY or Paris Sofitel is... More

As a preferred member of the Accor Club (group that owns Sofitel), I receive French macaroons in my room on check-in. I must say these are AMAZING! Actually something to look forward to when checking in, which is usually for business travel. This time I was up for a business trip and it was a colleagues birthday and of course... More

When my boyfriend and I made the last minute decision to stay in Philly for the weekend, we needed to book a room with only a day's notice. The staff was so helpful on the phone, finding a room that was affordable, and processing it quickly. We used the valet parking option, and the service was quick. The room itself... More

Went to a wedding in Philly (we live in the suburbs) so we decided to spend the night in town afterwards. Chose the hotel since it was close to the wedding. Had a Prestige suite and we were very impressed with the layout and decor. There is a sitting room with sofa bed separated from the bedroom by doors. Bathroom... More

I've stayed here multiple times--even as a Philly suburb resident. The organizations I work tend to like this hotel and I can see why. The rooms are spotless, modern and stylish. I've stayed on just about every side of the building and each side has a good view of this fantastic city.

The hotel had lovely rooms, a nice clean gym, a great location and friendly staff. The only, and BIG problem was that the entire hotel (lobby, elevator, hallways, rooms, even the gym) was pumped full of a flowery perfume fragrance that was so strong it triggered my migraines. Yikes. Overkill. Get rid of the fragrance and the hotel is fabulous.

Great staff. Very nice rooms & bathrooms, could use a little touch up. Very comfortable bedding. Parking cost was reasonable. Great bar, but drinks are very ex pensive. Great location, close to everything. Definitely recommend.

We reserved a king size bed. I have a confirmation email stating that we requested and would get a king size bed. However, when we checked in we were given two queens. I called to inquire about switching and was told that all rooms with king size beds were already taken. I'm still unclear how if i reserve a room... More
