Just returned from a weekend visit to the Sofitel and only have rave reviews. The only reason I haven't given the hotel a 5 star rating is because I believe that rating is to be reserved for a hotel that is untouchable in status and probobaly does not even exist. This hotel had a cool contemporary feel, with an amazingly comfortable bed. The bathroom was one of the largest hotel bathrooms I have ever experienced with a great oversized granite vanity and a glass shower stall. The linens were sheer perfection, making you feel as though you were a celebrity in sheets that were soft and featherbeds and duvets that wrapped you in down. The location could not have been better. The hotel is literally a stone's throw away from the some of the hottest and trendiest rest. and lounges in the area. A quick six dollar cab ride drops you off in the historic area where you can take a tour, walk around or simply enjoy the culture. The hotel is a great value and should definitely be taken advantage of.
By the way, we ate at Alma de Cuba which was awesome, and then went over to the Continental Midtown which is a three story building with a rooftop bar (the only in Philly I was told) and a cool and trendy restar. below. Request to sit on the level with the wicker birdcage swing seats. Trust me it's wonderful. Anyway stay at sofitel it's an all around good time. And I am from NYC so nothing usually pleases me!
