We recently booked one night at the Sofitel Hotel, using hoteltonight, on March 11th. We checked in mid afternoon, and as we had only one night, we headed up to the room to drop our bags, and head out to explore downtown Philadelphia. We were a little surprised at how dated and

This was our first stay at the Hotel Sofitel. We have stayed at other hotels in the Rittenhouse area and thought we would give the Hotel Sofitel a try. We upgraded to a suite and the suite had ample room. So first the positive. The room was in a quiet location and was a good

This is an excellent hotel in a great location. You can walk to lots of the key places and it's easy access to metro lines and shopping too. Rittenhouse Square (the hotel itself is actually a couple of streets away from the square) and the area are particularly lovely. My

Dear AlizonJ, Thank you so much for taking the time to share this review of Sofitel Philadelphia at Rittenhouse square! I am delighted we were able to make your six night stay so memorable. It is wonderful to know you were able to experience one of our newly upgraded rooms. We are currently upgrading all of our guest rooms and every so often the team needs to use tools that make some noise. We have taken all necessary measures to ensure the upgrades do not impact our guests' experience with us. I will be sure to share your comments with the team and will personally commend Esther and Luis! Thank you again for sharing this and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future!

I stayed on March 6th. The next morning at 8:15 I was awakened to hammering, drilling and some sort of buzzing sound over my head. Shortly after that there sounded like pounding on my front door. I opened the room door to see the room across from me 508 with a full

Dear journeysntime, First and foremost, please allow me to express my sincere apologies for our delay in response. This truly was an oversight and not a reflection of our standard in the customer service we strive to provide for our guests. Indeed, we are currently updating our guests rooms and while this does not include any major construction, there are a few tasks which result in the noises and disruption you experienced. Since first receiving your feedback we have spoken to our upgrade partners and have been working to further reduce the impact on our guests. I truly appreciate you bringing this matter to my attention. I understand our Director of Quality and Learning has also emailed you. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly should you have any additional questions or concerns. Our relationship with our guests is of paramount importance. We hope that you will present us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Angela

Hi. Does the hotel provide baby cot? And is Parking available?
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.

"We were on the 11th floor. No view to speak of so perhaps ask for a higher floor."
"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."
