From the moment we drove up, the staff was welcoming and helpful. Our room was huge: large bedroom with king bed and TV; large sitting area with couch, large desk and TV, large anteroom with closet and plenty of space for the two luggage racks; and large bathroom with separate tub (including hand shower) and standard tiled shower, with plenty...

We stayed here the evening of Diner en Blanc. The hotel is in a great location. We were greeted with smiles. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice & comfortable with large bathrooms. The bar makes great drinks. We had a wonderful stay and would return to this lovely hotel.

Would have been fine, but high contact objects like light switches, handles just seemed a little bit grimy like it could use a good cleaning and it would have been really great if they would have restocked the shampoo, conditioner and shower gel for my last night. It would have been even better if I had noticed this before I... More

Just got back from a few days in Phila. The room at the Sofitel was nice enough. It was quiet. They had what appeared to be an Eames chair. Since it is thousands of dollars, I was impressed until I sat in in it. I have one so I know how comfortable it is. The one in the room was... More

We recently had a day off in Philadelphia and stayed at the Sofitel right in the heart of pretty much everything. We arrived mid day and got into our rooms fairly quickly. My room was of average size and had everything in it that I needed. The room was clean and nicely appointed. The bed was super comfortable with nice... More

I spent a Saturday and Sunday night at the Sofitel last week, attending a meeting of about 20 people. My room was just right - big enough, single bed, non-smoking, etc etc. It had good closet space and a big bathroom with plenty of counter space, a glassed step-in shower, and good towels. My bed was good, firm but not... More

Location wise I don't think this hotel can be beat. The beds are amazing and I love the bathroom layout. Only thing that went wrong with our stay was having the hotel evacuated at 6:30 in the morning since someone sent off the sprinklers in a stairwell.
