The best hotel I stayed in Philadelphia. The staff are very welcoming, friendly, and courteous. Our room were so cleaned and well lit. The bathroom and shower were well organized and plenty of clean towels. The bed and pillows are comfy and soft. In-dining service were excellent, and the food is delicious cooked to perfection. The only down side was... More

Parking is pricey. Valet is $38 for 24 hours. Booked it on Expedia for $120 per night July 4th-6th. What a deal! The front desk attendants were friendly. To the far left are the elevators to the rooms, with the decor of red,white and black colors. Had a room on the 24th floor. The bedroom was clean and bathroom was... More

I booked this room for business because they told me I could check in early. Well of course I could not. Then there was horrible confusion about my company paying for the room and the staff was less than helpful. Well Casey finally helped. I was given complimentary breakfast to make up for the mistakes. And guess what.... I ordered... More

Dear Jessb22383 B, We do appreciate your candid feedback and are always looking for ways to improve our service. We obviously failed on many levels by not providing great customer service during your stay with us. We are in the process of sending all of our Associates through a series of intense service training sessions that will improve our service... More

Really nothing special. Location was good but that was about it. A city view gave us a view of a brick wall. There was construction all over the hotel which I realized after the reservations(because I was e-mailed after paying) which made everything a bit uncomfortable and impersonal. Apparently they have a gym and pool, but you could have fooled... More

I stayed for a night at the Sonesta and found it to be a very pleasant experience. The hotel is being renovated but I asked for and was given a renovated room, which was beautiful, clean, and modern. Wifi was strong--always important. Even though I was high up, I did hear some of the construction work in the morning but... More

I chose this hotel for its location. We decided to go the extra with the price - which was great. However, we were upgraded to a suite - so not sure of what we would have had at the price we paid. Overall it was a great place. Under construction - but overall nice and perfectly located to all the... More

Stayed here on 5th of July while on tour, I was surprised how nice this hotel was, they are doing some external renovations there was scaffolding on the outside entrance but once inside I thought very nice, the rooms were great, nice comfortable bed, good cold fridge, and free wifi. Although this is a tall hotel the lifts were very... More

I stayed in the Sonesta a couple of years ago while in Philadelphia for a wedding and decided to stay again while visiting over the 4th of July weekend. The decision to choose the Sonesta was solely because of the outdoor pool; in our previous stay we were definitely unimpressed by rooms and other facilities. While the renovations are still... More

We used to stay here a lot as the old Crowne Plaza, particularly as it had the English Pub (Elephant and Castle) attached. The upgraded rooms are definitely an improvement as are the staff attitudes and responses. We were very impressed with the general improvements and are looking forward to a trip in October when much of the work should... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would like to stay again once the renovation is complete. We stayed in a renovated room, and I could see this hotel becoming a full four star once the renovations are done based on the improvements made to our room. It is a short walk to restaurants, city hall, and it is... More
