We travel on a regular basis. I usually refrain from posting when I am frustrated. But this time, we are still in the premise, still hoping for any kind of feedback. And I am an easy customer, usually happy and easygoing. And I prefer to write positive reviews. The day we checked in, amenities were missing. We called, asked and... More

Sofitel Philadelphia would be an easy 5* choice for me if not for needing new beds and better bedding. The location is fantastic for tourists, our "Junior Suite" was HUGE and incredibly well appointed with a wonderful bathroom. I even mentioned that we were staying for my wife's birthday, and we came back in the evening to find a Cake... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times for work and on April 23rd I parked my car with their valet company and a few hours later saw my car race by me down the street. My car was stolen from their garage. The car was crashed and vandalized by the time it was recovered. After 4 months of trying... More

I strongly recommend the Sofitel! I stayed there in August both for work and leisure. It is ideally located in the shopping and dinning area of Philadelphia (Loft, Nordstrom, H&M, Zara, Tumi etc,) at short walking distance from the City Hall, walking distance of the historical center and the museums district. It is two blocks away from the suburban station... More

Stayed here for three nights and found the room very comfortable, good bed and quiet aircon. As has been said in other reviews some of the cupboards could do with some remedial work but no great problem. Front desk, valet and concierge staff were all very welcoming and helpful. We ate a couple of nights in the Liberte Lounge and... More

Hotel is located in the Rittenhouse area of Philadelphia, within walking distance of shopping and restaurants. This was our 2nd time staying, we keep going back due to the friendly staff, super clean rooms, and comfortable beds. A little pricey depending on when you go but so worth the stay. We never have a bad experience.

We traveled to Philadelphia from Indiana for a wedding that was being held at the Sofitel Philadelphia hotel. We stayed two nights (Fri & Sat). When we arrived, I was shocked by how tight it was to get into the valet/entrance to the hotel. Once we arrived to the front entrance, the valet promptly took our vehicle and gave us... More

This hotel has everything going for it. The rate is not cheap but the property is very nice. There is a very nice bar area and our room was spacious. I had one of my best night's sleep in a long time. The service was excellent from the entire staff. We took advantage of the valet parking which was fast... More

I have stayed here several times on business, and the service, amenities and accommodations in the hotel are superior. People are attentive, helpful and responsive, and when I left something in the room, both the front desk and security were great - they found it and mailed it back to me quickly. Will definitely stay again. I will NOT, however,... More

We enjoyed a corner suite and found the accommodations to be very comfortable and generously roomy. Everyone we met from the front desk to the bartenders were very pleasant, attentive, and professional. I paid a little over $300 per night for the room and considering the location and quality of the property, I found this property to be an exceptional... More
