My last visit to Sofitel Philadelphia was not very pleasant – the stay was fine and the room comfortable but when leaving in my car which was valet parked – I had problems. I drove away with a flat tire and my sunglasses had been removed from the center console. I don’t know if the hotel was at fault and...

This is a fine centrally located European style hotel with large comfortable rooms. My room was almost perfect except for the bed which was a bit to soft for my taste. Service is professional and top notch here. Unfortunately, the hotel was designed for cars, NOT people. The entrance is set back from 17th Street with a valet parking and...

Lovely hotel, very good customer service, great location and the price was not bad considering where we were... the breakfast buffet is worth the 25 bucks. Although the service in the restaurant was very slow, our server kept on pulling a disappearing act...nevertheless Will stay here again!

I had the pleasure of staying in the Sofitel Hotel Philadelphia for two nights in October this year. The room was great, it was the perfect blend of style, comfort and practicality. Not an easy achievement! The beds were exceptionally comfortable, very soft mattress with fresh clean duvets. The room was spacious with a large wardrobe and space to open...

We chose this hotel for it's excellent location and stayed here for two nights. It's close to the Liberty Observation Deck and just a few blocks from the subway to the Phillies games. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The concierge was excellent and helped us out with some bookings for local events. The room was clean, quiet and...

Stayed here over Thanksgiving. Close to parade and City Hall market. Staff was courteous. Room was clean. Bed only had a comforter on it; no sheet. Had drinks in the bar but did not eat. Valet parking was $50/night.

My family spent five evenings at the Sofitel over the Thanksgiving holiday. This has always been a solid choice for our frequent visits to Philadelphia. Our experience on this visit was not consistent with the standards we have come to expect from a Sofitel property. Upon checking in our card was billed twice for over $1000. Since we added a...

My wife and I stayed at the Sofitel Philadelphia hotel for a long weekend and had a superb experience! The room was spacious and the bathroom was huge. This was our first stay at a Sofitel and we were really pleased! The staff are what makes the difference and we found everyone we dealt with (bell hop, front desk, cleaning...
