“Stayed for Broad Street run”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

My husband and I stayed here for the Broad Street run.The hotel was lovely and the location was perfect. I highly recommend this hotel and we would definitely stay here again. You can easily walk to restaurants, and shopping. The subway is short walking distance too. If we had stayed longer, I would have liked to have stopped by their lounge for drinks or perhaps have breakfast in the morning. we ordered room service and it was on time!

The Sofitel Philadelphia is a beautiful hotel with a great location in Center City. We enjoyed the access to all of downtown Philadelphia. Room was very spacious with luxuriously comfortable King bed and a very nice bath. The lobby bar was a wonderful place to hang out as we did several times. All in all a great stay and one we would repeat.

The A/C was having issues the night we stayed there, I need it cool in order to get some shut eye but needless to say it was a very restless night for me.

The front desk did remove our food and beverage bill $61.00 but when your paying $335.00 per night you would expect everthing to be perfect and it was far from that.

The location of this hotel was fantastic, don't get me wrong, but the absolute best part of this hotel were the beds... I have yet to lie on a more comfortable mattress and I NEED someone from this hotel to tell me which one they are so I can buy one for my house!

Only thing about the place I didn't love was the stuffiness, but my wife and I are very low key and don't need anything fancy and the concierge seemed a bit uppity for me, recommending restaurants way out of our price range.

I would absolutely come back to the Sofitel as my wife and I absolutely want to come back to the beautiful city of Philadelphia!

Slept wonderfully! Bed is so comfy, room was quiet and I could control the temperature.
Centrally located in the heart of Philly. Complimentary tea, coffee and pastries for early risers. Stayed 4 nights.

I stayed at this hotel while in town for a wedding. The staff are extremely attentive and my room was spotless. The location is absolutely the best for exploring the best that Philly has to offer. The drinks at the hotel bar are exceedingly expensive, so proceed with caution. Also, I was supposed to attend a 3pm wedding, but my room wasn't ready until 2pm and the hotel didn't have anywhere available to change and freshen up. With that in mind, it's impossible not to say good things about this place.

I have stayed at the Sofitel in Philadelphia off and on for years, choosing it for its modern feel and competitive price. While it is still a great hotel, it has lost a step as it feels a bit run down. The beds are still fantastic and the staff is very courteous, but it just seems a bit worn. If the price is good, it is still a great place to stay, but it is no longer my first choice.
