4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

On a recent business trip I stayed here and will definately be back/reco to associates. Like other Sofitels I've stayed in - high quality service comes to mind first. From the minute you walk in the door, you are greeted with sincerity and immediately feel glad you have arrived. The French flair infused in the hotel's personality (even in the... More

The Sofitel is perfectly located for anyone wanting to sample the best of Philadelphia's culture, history, shopping, and fine food. Walking distance to great restaurants, Rittenhouse Square, the Liberty Bell and the amazing Di Bruno Brother's Market. Staff were gracious and helpful and the amenities were bountiful. Croissant/fruit and tea/coffee service in the lobby was an especially fine touch. Highly... More

The service - in every domain - and especially front desk, Concierge, housekeeping were excellent. Probably among the friendliest and most accommodating service that i recall. Excellent location for access to many venues.

The Sofitel Philadelphia is a nice hotel in the heart of downtown Philly. Just two blocks from a SEPTA station and close to City Hall, Old City, and the Museum area, it's the perfect place to stay for tourist activities. We stayed in a Junior Suite occupying a corner of the building, overlooking 17th St and Sansom Ave. The room... More

I stayed at the Sofitel for a one night business trip. Prior to my arrival the concierges was very helpful in making our dinner reservations for 14. Because I had a very early flight, i arrived at the hotel by 10 a.m. and was very pleasantly surprised to have a room I was able to check into.

My first experience at the Sofitel was wonderful and worth repeating. The recommendation came through a friend who visits Philadelphia regularly after I mentioned I needed a place to stay for the two vacation days I had added to my business trip. From the front desk to the Liberte, service was excellent. The concierge was very helpful with restaurant suggestions... More

I love this hotel. I stay here all the time as my employer has a contract with it. The staff is lovely and the hotel is so comfortable. As I stayed here many times, I often come across your receptionist Hector, who is always very helpful, welcoming and friendly. Thank you!

The location is great and the staff were uniformly professional and friendly. Check in and check out were a breeze. My room was spotless and the temperature control worked! The breakfast buffet was excellent-a couple of steps above the usual, and I highly recommend it. I loved that the servers refreshed my orange juice without being asked. I only stayed... More
