Very friendly staff. Conveniently located in downtown within walking distance of the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Walnut Street shopping, markets, etc. Nice, clean, spacious rooms (at least our junior suite was spacious). While this isn't a 5 star hotel, it certainly is a 4.0-4.5 star hotel and our room was a really a great value even when taking into account... More

My wife and I had to attend a holiday business dinner near Sofitel so we decided to make a weekend of it. We stayed in a Prestige Suite, had drinks at Liberti, and breakfast at Chez Colette. High praise for all: check-in service, room and cleanliness, service at Liberti, and the excellent French themed buffet at Chez Colette. We love... More

I used this hotel for a romantic weekend in Philly and me and my girlfriend loved it. We stayed in a suite and it was beautiful and awesome. The room was really clean and nice. The bathroom was big and clean. The hotel was in a great spot and within walking distance to many stores and attractions. Plus, it was... More

Great Location, wonderful staff, beautiful ambiance & excellent service! We are very partial to the VALET STAFF they are very courteous and accommodating. We love to sit in the Lounge area by the fireplace and relax with a glass of wine and people watch. The breakfast is excellent every time and the service is outstanding! The shopping and restaurants are... More

Overall the experience was good. Wonderful staff and nice location. The room was a bit tired looking and the view was of a brick wall to the north of the hotel. In this price range, there are better options nearby.

Great location right in the center, and within walking distance to Rittenhouse. The beds are very comfy and the rooms are a decent size for Center City. Great service, and no major issues...allowed a late check out. Cost of valet is what you'd expect-around $37? If you get room service-the pizza was actually really good. Seems they have limited options... More

After a long flight from Australia, I was so pleased I chose the Sofitel Philadelphia. The location is great, right in the middle of the restaurant and shopping district. I'd been unsure about staying here or in the historic district, but after walking around the city I knew this was the right choice. The staff were wonderful and the small... More

I am sitting in the lounge area right now and let me tell you it gets no better. There is a cozy area with multiple meeting tables and a fireplace in the corner. The Bar area has a long wall of intimate seating comfortable enough to have lunch, champagne, the quiche of the day and to complete my new web... More

The rooms were heavily aged and need updating. The tile in the bathroom was old and cruddy. Usually the first indication a bathroom hasn't seen a renovation in a few years. The carpet looked old and dirty. Although the room seemed clean, look close enough and this hotel needs a renovation. Considering this is in the vicinity of some great... More

We have recently renovated all of our rooms a year and a half ago, although I do certainly understand that not all of our décor may be favorable depending on different guests tastes.
