Stayed here for the Philadelphia Marathon. great location, nice looking rooms. Gym was small but nicely appointed with up-to-date equipment. The room number/signage got a little confusing, and the elevator security was nice, but difficult to operate. Friendly staff. Would stay th

Busy weekend in Philadelphia and I understand the rates go up but we were told we were getting a deluxe king room and for what we paid, it was not a "deluxe" room. Corner, small while other king rooms we saw were more spacious.

We selected this hotel because of the reviews and the fact there were very few rooms available due to the Army-Navy game. The hotel was nice and clean, the staff was friendly and our room was ready early. I was concerned because we got the last room available and it was right n

I stayed at the Sonesta for one night on 11/30 to attend a local fundraiser. The room was incredibly clean, spacious, and well-appointed. Staff at check-in and in general were kind, courteous, and efficient. The hotel is in the heart of downtown, just north of Rittenhouse Square

The hotel was convenient to City Hall and Rittenhouse Square areas. It was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and professional. The room had lots of extra outlets which are not often available in hotel rooms.

Is it an easy walk from the train station to the hotel ? Will be coming from airport. Thank you!
I remember passing the train station but do not recall the distance but the walk is not difficult. It is all downtown city traffic with lots of taxis and Uber around. The hotel concierge should be able to provide a better answer.

I’m not sure as I drove to Philadelphia from NYC. Uber or Lyft may be a quicker option.

What do I have to do to get the food and beverage manager to respond to my multiple requests for an itemized recipt for room service??? Why is this so difficult? I talked to front desk and front desk managers and no one seems to be able to get anybody to respond to my SIMPLE request! If this is the way you guys handle the little things you can bet I will never come back nor recommend this hotel to anyone!
Hello, We can easily provide receipts through our Accounting Office. Please send me a message I will be more than happy to forward on. In regards to parking, there are more options than Valet parking in the surrounding area. The Valet parking is connected to the hotel but please visit our website for other options that are less expensive. Thanks Bob Cosgrove General Manager

Hello. I’m local and wanted to book a room on my birthday weekend. I wanted to know what the time parameters are for pool usage Friday night check in versus Saturday check in. My main impetus is to get a full day of pool usage. Thank you!
Hello, The pool hours are from 8AM to 10PM each day. We are scheduled to close the pool for the season anytime after Labor Day. Please check with reservations to ensure the pool is still open based on your arrival date. Regards, Bob Cosgrove

I read somewhere they charge $100 per night for incidentals, are these charges refundable? I cannot find this anywhere in their website.
They will put a hold on the card that you check in with I believe. I have stayed many times and have never had that as a charge at the time of check out. I also normally let them know when I check out if I have had any of the waters in the room to just add that charge at time of check out and not have to worry about any following charges.

"The corner rooms' windows leak."
"Ask which side you'll be facing; we faced a brick office building. Didn't ruin our stay but would've liked a nicer view."
"room was quiet on the end, clean hallways, nice smell in the halls and rooms"
