My boyfriend and I stayed at the Sofitel this past weekend (9/24/05)
and here are what we found to be the good and bad points:
The bed....this was the most comfortable beds that I have ever slept in. My bed at home is super comfortable, and I have stayed at high level hotels all around the world, and none have had a more incredible bed. I literally didn't want to get out of bed to go see the city. :-)
Location: Very good, close to the Mutter Museum and a 5 minute drive to the best cheesesteaks in the city. (Jim's steaks)
The staff: Overall, they were quite unfriendly. The room service operator hung up oon me when I called to ask why the food wasn't here after an hour. The front desk staff was ok, but the Valet attendent (at night) was also very gruff. A few staff members were nice, but I got the feeling that these people just didn't want to be there.
Despite that, I would still stay there again because of the lovely rooms and location.
