I stayed with my wife at the Sofitel for 2 nights and was very pleased with the accommodations.
Everything in the hotel was very clean and the staff was very helpful and courteous. The hotel has a restaurant/bar in it which is convenient. There are many other restaurants and bars in the area and you aren't really too far from anything. If in Philly doing some site seeing, I recommend the hop on hop off bus as it's inexpensive and lets you travel the entire city.Enjoy!

We had a very nice stay at the Sofitel. The rooms were new, clean and spacious. The service was attentive. The workout room was quite small, but fortunately it wasn't crowded and I was able to access the equipment. Overall an outstanding value for the money.

Bonjour,

Thank you for your comments. We are delighted that you had such a lovely stay with us and found out hotel rooms spacious and clean, our service attentive, and our hotel to have an overall outstanding value. It is true that we do not have an overly large workout room; however, we find that it fits our hotel well since it never fills up and always leaves plenty of access to equipment to those guests who choose to utilize it. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sofitel Philadelphia in the future.

Regards,

Soft, great beds. Slept like a baby. Great lounge for a nightcap, with very nice, accomodating waitstaff. Within walking distance of downtown area and various attractions and restaurants.They could do without the loud, DJ music on weekends. But maybe that was only the night I was there. Stayed several times and plan on going back. I agree, the French greetings seemed almost comical.

We will most definitely take your comments into consideration with making any improvements to our hotel. It is always good to hear when guests take advantage of our great location and all it has to offer and look forward to an opportunity to welcome you back to Sofitel Philadelphia in the future.

We were looking for a one-night getaway (we live just outside of the city) and, as it turns out, the Sofitel was the perfect choice. I arrived before my boyfriend and spent an hour in the lounge with a glass of wine and a lovely little tray of olives and mixed nuts. There's modern French music playing, the lighting is nice and, if you're appreciative of such things, you'll admire the bookshelves with a built-in fireplace. The rooms are artful and immaculate and the bed...oh, the bed!

We had a wonderful but brief stay here and we will definitely return.
