Stayed here for Valentine's Day weekend and we were extremely pleased with our choice! The staff is probably the friendliest hotel staff I have ever encountered. Hotel is extremely clean, sophisticated, and laid out. Rooms are very spacious and the food at the breakfast was very good. Beds were the comfiest beds I have ever slept in in a hotel,... More

Well appointed European style hotel with French flair. Staff are wonderful especially Annalisa and Radziki! They exemplify hospitality and are endearing and added warmth to our stay! Very comfortable. Although some details detract from the star rating (cold coffee, missing-in-room coffee supplies, no valet upon arrival). Location is fabulous for shopping and sightseeing.

I stayed at the Sofitel Philadelphia for a weekend with some friends. The hotel was very clean and the service was outstanding. This is definitely an upscale place. The room prices are reasonable for the quality (not the cheapest place you'll find and it shows when you are there), though the prices at the bar/restaurant were a little too pricey... More

I always stay at the Sofitel when I am in Philadelphia which is 3 -4 time a year. I have always found the staff to be thoroughly professional, courteous and helpful. The rooms are great and the beds are the best I have ever slept in. I would have marked the hotel as excellent but in my opinion the overall... More

Wonderful experience staying with Sofitel. Be mindful to extra charges though, we had charges for the minibar that we didn't even have access to. It was apparent that housekeeping took something and marked it down that we had taken it instead. Management was quick to resolve matter and refund our money though.

The Sofitel Philadelphia is a beautiful hotel with friendly staff and upscale furnishings. We were upgraded to a suite which was perfect! The lobby bar is warm and inviting and the breakfast staff were great. The front desk staff was very friendly. The hotel is in a great location to wander the city. The only complaint I had was that... More

I stayed here for two nights with my wife. This was our second trip to Philadelphia. Because the prices were so reasonable, we sprung for a junior suite, which was a great value for the money. If I could, I would give this hotel 4.5 stars. The suite consisted of four separate rooms including a bathroom, living room, bedroom, and... More

Our stay at the Sofitel was perfect from check-in to the moment we left! We were celebrating our daughter's 40th birthday and we felt pampered by everyone there, from the front desk to the bell hops to the valet parking attendants. Our suite was just spectacular and allowed us to do a bit of entertaining around the edges of our... More

Nice people - very accommodating! Clean rooms. Great location, but traffic can be a bit noisy at night. Room service food was OK. I wish the bellman would have explained the elevators. Many people did not know a room key was required.
