Location is great. Walking distance from bars and restaurants. Barnes foundation is within walking distance as well. The parking accommodations is invaluable. Philadelphia is a great city and this hotel is right in the middle of the mix.

Yes, as some reviews mentioned, the decor is getting a little tired and worn out. Our suite had worn-out furniture and the mirror missing from the wardrobe (presumably broken and not replaced). But it's very clean (housekeeping did a great job) with a comfortable bed and high quality linens. For less than the cheapest room available (at the time we...

The Sofitel is a nicely maintained upscale hotel with nice sized rooms. The location is fantastic as well. Our room, 522, was a little musty and the spray my wife bought did little to overcome it. The other issue is that in this particular room, the shower door only pushes in to the stall and left such little room, I...

Excellent stay, our third trip. Comfortable rooms with incredible service. All of the employees we encountered were very pleasant and always nice. Also the bed was one of the best hotel beds I've ever slept in.

The room was nice and big, giving on 17th st on 6th floor. However, we could not have a good night sleep because of night clubbers' exiting the 1925 lounge on 17th St, very noisy, car horning, from 2 to 3 am. It was on Friday night.

This was the first time we have stayed at a Sofitel. We really liked the layout of the room, especially the generous closet space. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. I will definitely stay in one of your hotels again.

I recently stayed for a Saturday night at This hotel. As a family of 4 with both kids in college in the city, we've been here many times. Upon arrival I needed a restaurant reservation so I hoped on the wifi to see what was good. The internet was so slow that I had 300kbps- so I called the front...

I've stayed at the Sofitel 4 times over the last three years for business and pleasure. The rooms are always very clean, the staff extremely friendly, and the ambiance unique. The location is ideal as the walk to town hall is less than 5 minutes, and to Independence Hall in less than 10 minutes. There is also always several staff...
