This hotel is a perfect location to see Philadelphia. My husband and I had a romantic two night stay here. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. We were on the 9th floor which had a great view. Higher is definitely better. There are many great restaurants just a couple blocks away. We walked to independence hall....a little... More

This hotel is absolutely fabulous. The staff- from the valets to the concierge to the desk clerks- could not have been any nicer. Everything about the hotel is awesome! We only stayed overnight after a concert so we didn't get to use any of the amenities. The room was perfect- very roomy and clean! Five stars. We were going to... More

Just stayed one night but wish it could have been more. Wonderful hotel central to everything. I had emailed the concierge before we arrived about parking and the locations of various sites. Was contacted back within the day. Very helpful and polite staff. Lobby and lounge area are a wonderful retreat from the street, quiet and relaxing. Love the extra... More

My husband and I stayed at Sofittel in early August. This is my second time at this hotel. Location is excellent, right in the center of Rittenhouse square area. Hotel is very nice, staff is excellent. Very nice & clean room, beautiful bathroom. The only thing is that there aren't any drawers to put your clothes in. There is a... More

Bonjour grover13! It was so good to have you and your husband back again to enjoy our central, Rittenhouse square location just steps away from museums, theaters, shopping, top restaurants, and the historic district. I was disappointed to hear that our room design without drawers did not meet your expectations; however, we do have shelving in our closets which we... More

We have been to the Sofitel in NYC and San Francisco Bay, as well as the Novotel in NYC. We think this Sofitel is the best of the four. The lobby is spacious and quiet, the room is large and well-equipped, the service is impeccable, the restaurant is excellent, and the entire experience is what you'd hope for in an... More

They couldn't do anything more for us! They graciously upgraded our room as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The room, service and housekeeping were all excellent. We asked for more coffee and creamers for the room and they were delivered seconds after our phone call. Breakfast at Chez Colette was phenomenal! The waitstaff took great care of us and... More

I travel every week for work. This was one of the best stays I've had. I usually travel by myself, but brought my fella with me on this trip. The lobby and rooms were clean and the location was fantastic. There were excellent restaurants nearby and the location is close to all the attractions. We had a great time.
