One of my favourite hotels. Staff are all excellent, the rooms are spacious and have all the extra touches to make it luxurious, all the fittings are of good quality but more importantly it's quiet. Free wifi, excellent breakfast and a great location. Really can't fault it in any way.

We stayed here 2 nights on a pleasure trip. Rooms were big & clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds we've ever slept in. We ended both evenings at the stylish lobby bar. Staff was attentive and friendly. My only complaint is it was a little far from the historical district, which is where we... More

Sofitel was wonderfully accommodating for our organization's meeting last week. I stayed Monday through Friday with a very comfortable room and meeting space. The food for our members/sponsors each AM and lunch was wonderful (many complimented this as being 'the best' we have had in years!). The location can not be understated - walking access to a huge variety of... More

I needed to be in Philly for an overnight, and this hotel was right around the corner from where I needed to be. Great comfort, nice staff, fantastic location! I can't get into details about the services, as I didn't really take advantage of any while there, but contact I had with the hotel before my arrival was pleasant and... More

Sofitel Philadelphia has excellent accomodations for a business meeting (meeting space and food/beverage), and the room for my overnight stay was very comfortable. The hotel is within easy walking distance of stores, restaurants, and pharmacies. Also, it's a short cab ride (or longer walk) to a few museums.

Rooms are gorgeous and spacious-loved the comfy bed and bathroom!! The front desk staff is fantastic-they are very good at their jobs. I lost an earring back to my big earrings that I was wearing to a wedding that night and inquired if they sold them at the front desk and Victoria? (I think that was her name) actually took... More

Everything about my stay was wonderful. I was a bit surprised, however, that my Mac power cord kept falling out of the multi-unit in the room. I ended up having to plug the computer into the wall, which was not as convenient. Not sure what that was about, but have never had it happen before. It was also a bit... More
