We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. Staff are welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Rooms are perfectly sized, and beds incredibly comfortable. All in all room and staff were top notch!

Because the location is so great, I have stayed at three hotels within 100 yards or less of this hotel. However, this was my least favorite. My expectations given the reviews and pictures had me so excited, yet I felt deflated when I walked in the room. My room was on the 5th floor and it overlooked an ally or... More

My husband and I REALLY enjoyed our stay here during the 2015 Memorial Day weekend! The room was very clean and comfortable, the duvet was to die for, the breakfast buffet was THE BEST and the service (check-in, valet, bar, restaurant) was superb! I'm happy to recommend it highly!

It was a lovely hotel. There are 2 negatives, though. First, the continental breakfast ended at 8 am, really? On a Saturday morning? Also, the valet parking upon departure was a nightmare. They couldn't handle the amount of incoming cars for 2 wedding parties for Saturday afternoon.

Stayed for 2 nights. The bed had a feather comforter, feather pillows and feather topper which made the bed super comfy and cosy. Nice sized room, clean and comfortable. Great big shower with glass door. Heard some noise from the hallway but otherwise very quiet. Great location, close to restaurants and Rittenhouse Square Park which was great for people and... More

This was my first visit to a Sofitel property. It was for a conference, also hosted at the hotel. The service is impeccable, the staff extremely courteous and helpful, and although you are experiencing a first-class experience, there is no "snobbery" by anyone at the hotel. The restaurant, the bar, the catered food - all excellent. While I was here... More

We were with another couple on a Tauck Tour (which we highly recommend as a Tour Company) and Philadelphia was our first stop. The rooms are large and lovely but it was the congenial staff that made our stay memorable. The Concierge suggested The Marathon Restaurant just 2 blocks away for a late snack. We ejnoyed it so much that... More

We stayed 2 nights recently at Sofitel Philadelphia. Very comfortable room although a bit dated ( would benefit from renovation soon) but clean and very roomy. Excellent front desk employees from start to finish! That makes a huge difference every time from our perspective. Location is also superb ( a block from Rittenhouse Square and short walk to Art museum... More

I stayed here during a conference. Of the hotels I've stayed at in Philly I enjoyed this one more so then others. Very clean, friendly staff and great location. I was not completely thrilled at the appetizers that were given as options at the bar. I also am not sure I'd bring my family there as it was, to me,... More

The hotel was very nice and comfortable. The location was within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, and several historical sites. The service was very good, and the food catered by the hotel for the conference was EXCELLENT. The hotel was a bit pricey, so this is what I would expect for the amount of money spent.
