I don't travel to Philadelphia often, but when I do, I stay here. I recommend this to others when they are visiting the city. I travel a lot and have stayed in countless hotels, but this is truly one of my favorites. The service is excellent. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The beds are heavenly. The location is perfect... More

Friendly staff and beautiful rooms and a convenient location. Very updated. The coffee shop is expensive but they had free coffee and some days croissants free too. July was unbearably hot. I would not go again in July.

I was a little surprised at my most recent stay here at several small things that hinted that attention to detail may be flagging. The wallpaper in my suite was torn in a very visible spot; no newspaper was delivered in the morning (despite my standard request in my frequent guest profile setting), and none were to be found in...

For the price of the Sofitel’s rooms, as well as its Tripadvisor ranking, I expected much better service than what we received the weekend of 7/25-7/28/2014. Taken separately, the issues were minor; together, they constituted a nuisance I have not previously experienced at similarly-priced/-rated hotels. We ran into problems both mornings of our stay; oddly, both involved Sofitel’s complimentary coffee.... More

I have stayed here a couple of times and it never disappoints. The rooms are gorgeous, the doormen are very helpful, the furnishing and décor are luxurious and the staff at the front desk are very attentive. Hotel sits at a prime location with many places to go and shop all within walking distance. Public transportation is very close by... More

From the doorman outside to the restaurant personnel they make you feel more than welcomed. Upgraded due to club membership- accordhotels progam. Great spacious suite with separate bedroom. Quite relaxing room. Great restaurant breakfast offer, good choices, delicious. Many great restaurants within walking distance, no need for a car. Must visit for great imported delicacies, DiBruno Brothers.

Very nice and clean hotel other than the fact there was mold growing behind the clear grout in the shower. There may have been more mold around the room somewhere because my asthma was really bothering me!! Otherwise very happy with our stay.

No issues, comfortable night stay. Room seemed clean and well maintained! Happy with service and location. Parking was well done by valet! It was quiet in the room, good AC control since we like a cool room for sleeping.

My son and I were on a two-week driving trip checking out colleges. We were a week into our trip, and this was our 5th hotel. When planning the trip, I was so excited to see a Sofitel in a city where we would be. I stayed at a Sofitel in London and couldn't imagine that the one in Philadelphia... More
