We came to Philadelphia to visit our daughter, and planned to stay just one night. It was so pleasant, we extended our stay for a second night. Our suite was lovely, with just about every amenity one could want. The entire staff was friendly and courteous, always with a smile and kind words. The concierge was most helpful in locating shops and dining.
All in all, this was one of the best hotels stays in our memory. We shall return!

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with family

We enjoyed a very nice one night stay in this hotel. A last minute family trip left us scrambling and we needed to bring our small dog. Hotel was very busy, seems to be a popular location for weddings, and the tastefully designed lobby and rooms are easy to see why.

Our room was very large, a little surprising for a hotel downtown in the heart of a big city. It is conveniently located to a really nice neighborhood, park, and restaurants, all walking distance. The concierge helped direct us to a few restaurants with outdoor seating that were pet friendly.

After dinner we put the dog in the room and enjoyed a nightcap in the lobby bar. The server, Christine, was super friendly and very attentive, even as the bar started to fill up with post-wedding activity.

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone travelling with a pet. Though they are pet friendly, there is no evidence of pets anywhere in the rooms (very clean!). No pet fee, though they do run your card for an additional $300 which is reimbursed.


The valet area was quite hectic and busy, and quite expensive ($45 per day), we were fortunate to not need our car except upon checkout.

Bonjour baylily,

Thank you for pointing out so many of our services in such a positive way! Our large guest rooms are certainly one of our guests' favorites, as is our downtown location.

What truly makes my day is the high level of service you received from Christine and our concierge during your stay. Each member of our team here truly has a passion for delivering a magnifique experience to each of our guests (including our pet guests!) and I am delighted that we have accomplished this for you during your last minute family trip.

We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to the Sofitel Philadelphia.

Au revoir,
Vincent

Location can not be beat. There is great food, bars and shopping just steps from the hotel. We enjoyed the lively lobby bar scene each weekend night after our return from dinner. Our room was on the 5th floor and we did not hear a thing. The hotel rooms were quiet without the typical noises from other rooms or hallway heard. The bed was super comfortable and the room darkening blinds made it possibly to sleep as late as you like. The hotel offers free coffee, which may be the only opportunity for improvement, however we found it just as easy to step outside and head to one of the places nearby. The bell and valet staff were helpful with directions, hailing cabs and pointing us to our next destination. If you have stayed at a Sofitel hotel before the location lives up to the brand! It was a great stay and we would return!

After a long flight and a layover we were able to check right into our room and the young lady at the front desk upgraded us to the 10 floor... The room is nice and spacious the bathroom is also nice but with a few hiccups but over all a great stay so far. It's our anniversary and the even sent us up a few tasty desserts and a cold bottle of water.. Today is day 1, 2 more days to go... So far it's great
