This was my first stay at a Sofitel hotel. The warm welcome extended by Guest Services manager Sonia Dimicoli was very much appreciated and set the tone for our entire stay with Sofitel. We were celebrating my wife's birthday during her first visit to Philadelphia. The pleasant amenities offered by the hotel and Ms. Dimicoli, from the upgraded room to... More

Stayed here whilst visiting our son in Philadelphia. A good central location and a comfortable suite. Air conditioning did not work properly, but we didn't realise this until our son pointed it out, as were there in March so didn't need it! Some items in bathroom had not been replaced when the room had been cleaned prior to our stay.... More

The hotel staff are helpful, my room was spotless and beautifully appointed. Very functional and complete. Keurig coffee maker that also makes wonderful hot tea. The shower was large, the bathroom was all marble surfaces with ample towels. My room had two large closets, one with hangers and another with shelves for folded clothing. The restaurants in the lobby served... More

I stayed here for both business and with family for fun over the Christmas holidays 2013. The rooms were very nice, as I would expect from a Sofitel. We got a nice rate so value was excellent. The hotel restaurant was great for a quick breakfast and the service was very good. The valet parking was pricey but I expect... More

Stayed at the Sofitel for 4 days. It's a nice hotel. Beautifully designed and decorated. The rooms are nice, with good pillows (not the too thick, too hard foam ones that most hotels have), and feather bed topper. But it's a city hotel, so crappy views (the alley!); one tiny window; no drawers at all(!!!); a shower that barely ran,... More

The service was the best I ever had at a hotel. I mentioned in passing that I was celebrating a birthday, and the next thing I knew there was a complimentary basket delivered to me room. We had an issue with the TV, and they were up in our room to fix it within 2 minutes. Everybody went out of... More

There are some hotels that go beyond the ordinary by focusing on their guest by providing friendly service that goes beyond the routine . This Sofitel is one of them. We arrived at 3:30 pm and the room was not ready. To ease the frustration, complimentary drinks at the well appointed bar plus an upgrade for our troubles. Throughout the... More
