A recent stay at the Sofitel clearly showed why this hotel remains at the top of the pack. It is not just a stay but an experience! This was my third and favorite stay to date. I was greeted graciously upon arrival with quick bag service followed by personalized service during check in. I inquired about a room upgrade, as... More

My sister and I were in Philadelphia to celebrate her birthday and stayed one night at the Philly Sofitel. We had the sleep, drive and eat package and what a wonderful experience. The check-in was a breeze and we got into our room early. We went out to explore and when we returned there was a delicious piece of cake... More

My husband and I stayed for one night while visiting the City of Philadelphia. This is a French-based boutique, luxury hotel, and is situated close to Independence Hall, Love Park, and is in walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Our room rate included parking and breakfast. Every one of the staff was... More

I stay every few months on business in this hotel. The hotel is in a great location. Lots of nice places to eat, drink and shop within walking distance. The rooms are of a good size and nicely furnished. The bed is definitely one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever stayed in. The bed is large, great... More

I recently stayed at the Sofitel for 5 days the beginning of July! All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were well appointed and very clean. The beds were very comfortable. I had asked for a room on a high floor away from the elevators and they accommodated both requests without problems. I would stay there again!

Stayed at the Sofitel for a board meeting. This was my first time both in Philly and at staying at a Sofitel. Coming from the West Coast my preferred way to get to the East Coast is by red-eye, so I arrived rather early. The location is wonderful; right within walking distance to just about anywhere. I was greeted warmly... More
