We stay at the Sonesta Hotel in Philadelphia every month. Each time we come, sometimes in large groups, Franklin Anthony gives us excellent service in the Art Bar. We have a great experience every time.

Location of this hotel is great it's next to many poplular restaurants, bars, and sightseeing attractions. While booking we upgraded from the Deluxe Room ($129.99) to the Club Room ($149.99). Although we didn't see the Deluxe Room, on paper it looked better with more room, sofa bed (not a pull out sofa bed), and better view of the city. Upon... More

During a business trip to Philadelphia I stayed at the Soneta Hotel Philadelphia during April 14 - 17, 2015. My experience at the hotel was excellent. Staff was pleasant, and my room was very clean, excellent internet services and I love the idea that there was a sofa to relax.

This hotel is conveniently located in Center City near City Hall. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a frig and coffee maker in each room. The staff is friendly including the cheery maid that did my room up ( twice in one day when I requested it!). It is close to a ton of restaurants ranging from sandwich take... More

We stayed at the Sonesta during our first trip to Philly and we're thrilled with our experience at this hotel. We felt that the staff were friendly and super helpful. They encouraged me on my way to an interview and asked how it went when I got back. Their service was beyond our expectations. Our room was nice and had... More

Very average and just about acceptable. Mutton dressed as lamb. Would not stay here again. Offers the absolute basics.My room was very musty. Everything was a bit dated. Changed my room once and the new one was marginally less musty than the original one. The reception was less than friendly and the change of room was down only reluctantly. Wanted... More

The service and overall ambiance and location of the Sonesta was just super. Beginning with the valet, continuing on with the check in concierge, and ending with a delightful check out clerk, the service was lovely and charming. The room was perfectly clean and extremely comfortable, with yummy bedding and a great contemporary bathroom. The lobby had been updated and... More

This was my first time visiting Philadelphia and I took my kids - their first time too. I booked a stay at the Sonesta because their pricing was competitive, little did I know it was a bit of an upscale hotel. We showed up in jeans and zip up hoodies - it was a trip for leisure, it seemed all... More

The Sonesta is not impressive when you walk in but the service is excellent. The room was clean and the bathroom was one of the best I've seen. We requested a crib for our little one and it was in the room when we checked in. The staff was helpful and available at all times.

The Pros: The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is also conveniently located on market street. The Cons: The walls are paper thin and the hotel is poorly insulated for sound. Talking, running water, hair dryers, and TVs from other rooms are clearly audible. The worst though was the night construction. My room... More
