Time in Philly though short, one day and night, was absolutely perfect. Everyone was very polite and the hotel is very nice. The location is perfect in the heart of the city and within walking distance. Look fwd to staying again.

The ONLY place to spend a weekend in Philly... or longer of course. As usual, super friendly staff, servers, valet... and the room was spotless with all the amenities needed for a cozy weekend. Breakfast was great... and our server was Miguel who is just amazing!! LivingSocial was running a special package deal so it was above and beyond the usual fabulous!

Room Tip: The Junior Suites are perfect for a comfortable weekend getaway.... obviously the upper floors have...

One of the best places to stay in Philly. The location is perfect. Walking distance to just about everything and surrounded by shopping and restaurants. The staff welcome everyone and go out of their way to provide top service. Even the valet was amazing. The room was nicely decorated and the toiletries are top notch as well. Turn down service was a nice surprise as well. The check in was fast and professional. The bellhop showed us everything we needed in the room. An over all amazing experience. Cant wait to stay again.

Despite a major snowstorm in Philadelphia, we had a wonderful weekend at the Sofitel. From the lovely (surprise) bottle of champagne and congratulatory note from the hotel manager that "greeted us" when we entered the room, to an evening listening to the Brazilian duo Valentine's evening...it couldn't have been better. Next visit, we'll try the restaurant in the hotel for dinner, as we hear it's also great! All in all, this is a super place for a weekend away for "locals" or visitors! It's central to everything in Center City, and the staff are all terrific.

Room Tip: We were on the 14th floor -- quiet and just right!

Spent three nights at this hotel this week. My room on the fifth floor was excellent although not too much view due to other buildings in the area. Mattress was excellent. All room amenities were outstanding. Used several of the meeting rooms all were top-notch. Meals were excellent many different choices extremely fresh and well-prepared. Best part of hotel is staff - they were cordial, well-trained, and assisted with our every need. I would highly recommend this hotel when you are in downtown Philadelphia.

Dear HoyaPete,

What a wonderful review! It is my pleaure that our ambassadors were able to provide you with exemplary service while you had the opportunity to utilize our meeting rooms and enjoy some of the delicacies we offer here from our restaurants.

Prior to your next arrival, please be sure to alert our Guest Services team should you have a preference for a nicer view so that we may do our best to provide you with a room on a higher floor if available.
