The location is prefect to discover possibly the most historic US city, Philadelphia resonates with a certain buzz and the Sofitel is it's heart. The staff are courteous and friendly, and take the guests' needs as their priority to ensure you get the best experience bar none. The rooms are comfortably appointed, and along with the usual in room facilities,... More

This is always a fantastic place for my wife and I to stay when in Philadelphia. It's in the middle of the city, walking distance to tourist destinations, shopping and eating. The staff is absolutely fantastic and will take care of everything you need. One thing to consider though if you have kids, there's no pool, no games or stuff... More

First trip to Philadelphia. Chose the hotel because it was the lead hotel for Diner en Blanc. Great location both to the dinner and to area attractions. Was able to walk to and from historic city with ease. From the time I stepped foot in hotel until I left, treated exceptionally well. Check in was smooth; Anthony was very attentive.... More

First time visiting Philadelphia. Central location--walking distance to great bars and restaurants (For a low-key (but clean!) hole-in-the-wall bar try the Wrap Shack located on a 2-minute walk from the hotel). Walking distance from the Travel and Leisure reviewed pie shop "I Luv Magpie" (Went with a good, but very sugary Vanilla Custard slice). Walking distance to many subway stops... More

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
