Year after year, I am spending 3-4 days in Sofitel Philadelphia as part of a major kick-off event of the project management Institute. Room service, catering and service stay at the same high level. Being part of the well known Accor Group, the french touch is everywhere present.

Overall nice hotel with excellent service and friendly employees. Location is ideal and walking distance to most everything. Standard rooms are good size and comfortable. The only issue was that the room was extremely dry and a humidifier or some sort of change to the heating system should be considered. One other improvement should be some newer aerobic machines in... More

Excellent location, facilities, service. Nice restaurant with buffet breakfast for 25 bucks. Good size room, well laid out and neat and clean. Housekeeping is regularly done and the room is well kept. A short walk away from the marketplace and lots of restaurants around for evening dinner. I enjoyed the stay here. The business meeting room facilities are excellent and... More

I've stayed here several times over the years and the staff remain stellar. But I'm starting to notice some cracks at the edges. My mattress this last time around was obviously in need of retirement and it would be nice if they would eventually fix the poor elevator key card functionality (for years I've had to slip the card into...

I attended a conference held at the hotel and stayed there for 5 nights. This is my second stay. The front desk and concierge were very welcoming and helpful. I was looking for a tiny restaurant I'd read about and they found it. The conference food was unusually great and the service of all food staff was top notch. Lovely,... More

14 story hotel walking distance from historic sites, upscale restaurants in the area, friendly staff, bath robes in every room. Only downside was no drawers for clothes. Nice workout area and excellent conference facilities.

Sofitel is a lovely hotel with spacious rooms and is located close by a lot of places within walking distance. Take a cab (don't drive, parking is outrageous) and wander around downtown Philly. They also catered the food for the conference - and it was all fantastic. I did wonder at the fish/chicken duet plate - I'm sure there were... More

What can I say except c'est magnifique! From the time you walk in you feel as if you belong. Everything is beautifully appointed without being overdone or gaudy. The bar is warm and welcoming, and well laid out to allow large crowds to not disrupt smaller more intimate gatherings. The rooms are very nice and have everything you need and... More

The Sofitel Philadelphia is well located, well appointed, and well staffed. Well, well, well. You don't get that altogether in one hotel very often. :) I was fortunate enough to get a complimentary upgrade, so the suite in which I stayed was very nice, with a separate foyer, living room and bedroom. The bathroom had a separate shower, soaker tub... More

Another great stay at this luxury hotel. The location is perfect with good bars and shops all located nearby. Check in was speedy and my room on the eleventh floor was free from any noise of the city. The room was a good size and had a lovely white chair and stool, the bed was large and comfortable with good... More
