    There are some negative reviews on the food items offered in the Club Lounge so I'm wondering if it's worth it for me and my kids. What kind of food is served during breakfast, snack and dinner? Any made to order eggs/omelets? French toast? Pancakes? Hash Browns? sparkling water added yet? A variety of wine? Thanks!

    It was fine for my husband and, I but I would not recommend for regular meals. Very limited menu,portions are somewhat small and not particularly child friendly. Their wine choices may be OK,but I would not think extensive.

    No, they charge, I am not sure what the cost is though. I believe that they have it on their website. I usually don't have a car when I am traveling to Philly. If you stay at Sonesta I know you will enjoy it.
