Sofitel Philadelphia is located in a perfect spot for shopping, and at a walking distance of the historical sites. Plenty of restaurants around. Really comfortable, and friendly staff. I travel to Philly for business since 2009, and I always chose Sofitel.

Don’t know about the baby cot but they have valet parking which is very expensive. We parked about 2 blocks away and paid $15 for overnight parking. We saved $30 plus a tip. Check around for sure.

Just saw your message regarding Sofitel in Philadelphia. Free coffee is offered in lobby and I believe there are also pastries offered for free, but I am not 100% sure of the pastries. There is a beautiful breakfast available in the hotel lobby restaurant. Our hotel package included breakfast.

"Rooms facing the main street may be better due the view, but may be prone to outsider noises."
"Ask for a view. Rooms away from the elevator are quieter"
"The higher floors are quieter. Valet parking is pricey. Dog friendly as advertised."
"Avoid this hotel if you are looking for a luxury hotel."
"The Jr Suite was nice with a separate living area"
