The hotel location is good, the surrounding area is convenient, safe and somewhat quiet. The hotel is a bit old, but still very clean and tidy. The hotel should have been a five star, not just 4. Lovely suites, will come again next time.

I recently came to the hotel for a long-term stay, and it's hard for me to imagine staying anywhere else when I come to Philadelphia. First off, the room was beautiful--really clean and bright. Rittenhouse is a terrific area, with lots of bars and restaurants. I've stayed at other hotels around there, but I keep coming back to the Sofitel. The room feels like a luxurious apartment in the sky. It's bright and clean and surprisingly spacious. Big TVs and beautiful furnishings. The lobby has a really nice vibe--with a cool bar and restaurant as well (and even a fireplace). I did computer work down there, but other people were having coffee or drinks--it's just a nice, casual hanging spot. The Sofitel team--led by operations manager Attila-- were SO accommodating from the first moment I walked in. They worked with me on booking a quiet room, getting me a bunch of amenities that I didn't even know were options, and tailoring every part of my experience. The reservations agent Keisha was really detailed, and the front desk staff always had smiles on their faces when I needed something. Andrew the concierge was lovely and so generous with time and advice. Everyone makes you feel like you're family--whether you're staying for a short time (which I have before) or a longer one like mine. A final note of gratitude again to Attila, who helped me out in more ways than can be described in this short space. He and his team know how to run a hotel right--I wish everywhere I stayed had this level of professionalism and accommodation. I really can't wait to return. Thanks again!

The Sofitel Philadelphia is probably my favorite place to stay in Philadelphia. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are well-decorated, comfortable and clean. The Wifi is strong, the gym is good and the restaurant food is very good. There is complimentary coffee and either fruit or pastries in the morning. And its in a great location

My boyfriend and I took a weekend trip to Philly and stayed at the Sofitel and it was the best decision we made! From start to finish, the Sofitel is the absolute best place to stay. We were celebrating my birthday and the staff upgraded our room, brought up a birthday dessert, and were so warm and welcoming. The room was clean and spacious. Valet and the bellboys were super kind and helpful! We will definitely be back!
