I travel a lot on business and found the Sofitel to be a very comfortable hotel. We booked a Prestige suite. The rate for the room was decent as we got four nights for the price of three in a special offer. There was a double door to get to the suite. We appreciated the added security and quiet. The room was great for the three of us. The staff quickly made up the sofa bed in the living room for our son, and they set it up each night when they came for turn down service. The room was very, very clean. Everyone was friendly. There was very little outside or inside noise. We all got great rest. The location is great for walking or driving around the city. We felt safe in the neighborhood.
DiBruno Bros is around the corner for groceries and snacks. Paulino's Coal Oven Pizza is nearby - very good, large portions, inexpensive. The Belgian Waffle place down the block on 17th is good for breakfast and coffee. The French Patisserie a bit further down 17th was not so great.
The only tiny complaints I have were that the air handler was a bit loud (we just turned it off at night and the room was fine), we did have to call to ask for more soap and shampoo (more was delivered in minutes), and when I went to connect to the internet there was a charge even though the reservation said it was complementary - this was quickly rectified by the front desk staff who explained that there would be no charge on the final bill (and this was correct). Cost of parking was a bit steep at $30 a night plus the local valet tax and tips, but it's a city and that is typical.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Sofitel Philadelphia, and will likely return in the future.
