We had the pleasure of staying at the Sofitel in Philadelphia. The hotel is centrally located and is convenient to many of the city's wonderful historic sights and many restaurants that make Philly special!

Great rooms, modern decor in the slightly 'mid-century' clean and right-angled sense. Gym was excellent, rooms average size but well appointed. Concierge was helpful, on premises shops good but pricy, as usual. Excellent area for sightseeing or walking the neighborhood shops.

Like all the Sofitels I've stayed in, the public areas and private rooms are kept in great condition and the staff is very gracious and helpful. We were given a suite on the 4th floor and the next morning could hear the sound of the Fitness Center through the wall, so while we were out for the day we were... More

Good location near shopping and Rittenhouse square. Multiple choices for restaurants near by. Comfortable beds with nice linens. The gym was not huge but has a good number of exercise machines and equipment. Would return.

Very centrally localized. You can walk to Rittenhouse Square and many stores and restaurants around. They recommended a tour bus service for us who came and picked us up. Did not eat there so have no knowledge about that. Staff was professional and very helpful.

This is a fab hotel, luxurious and beautiful. It feels elegant and the staff is very professional and friendly, something which is not always the case. The room we stayed in is really spacious and very clean. Love everything about it, really quiet as well which was requested (that too made us happy). The breakfast buffet was lovely, and the...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is located really close to Walnut and Chestnut Street shopping, Rittenhouse Square, City Hall and the Masonic Temple. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds we've ever had. Our room and bathroom were very clean and quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Nice reception and check in, very professional staff. The first room smelled like cigarette smoke despite their no smoking policy so they upgraded us to a lovely suite. Room was well appointed , bathroom had luxurious Lanvin toiletries. Room service breakfast, while expensive by real world standards, came with yogurt, fruit, an enormous bread basket (excellent, outstanding croissants!) and a... More

We booked the hotel through Orbitz. We were upgraded to a suite, so it was perfect. The hotel is luxurious. It's a nice haven in the middle of center city. It's a very convenient location within walking distance of a ton of stores and restaurants and our friends who live in center city. Great bed, great amenities. I would stay... More

I have been to this hotel on many occasions for work. First impressions? They never let the customer down. The environment and atmosphere is very welcoming and the rooms are immaculate. Do not avoid the breakfast, being Italian I have tried the best coffee in there. From reception to staff I'm general, very professional and caring. 5 min walk to... More
