Great and Accommodating stay

Would recommend Mon, Jul 19, 2010
The two greatest assets that Hotel Sofitel can showcase are the location of the hotel and it's service. The hotel is located 2 blocks away from Rittenhouse Square which is the center of shopping as well as outdoor restaurants on the park. Everyday we walked around the Rittenhouse square and enjoyed it's ambiance. The nightlife around the hotel is also phenomenal as there are a number of lounges around the hotel as well as the hotel lobby. The hotel service was impeccable. From the moment we arrived at the hotel, the staff took care of everything we needed/requested in a timely and warm manner. We requested a few things for our room (i.e. refrigerator, extra pillows, extra water) and the staff came within minutes of the request. The concierge and front desk people were also very informative and amiable in all answering all our questions. We also requested a later check out and the hotel was more then willing to accommodate us as well. Valet attendants were helpful and friendly as well. Great service! The only slightly area which the hotel could improve upon is the room décor as we were expecting a little more from a "chic French" hotel. The hotel lobby is beautiful but the room colors were a slightly drab. However, the size of the room was great (we had a jr. 1 br suite and had ample space) and the cleanliness of the room was wonderful. We would definitely recommend Hotel Sofitel and come back to the hotel during future stays in Philadelphia.

We had dinner at Porcini, which was awesome. We saw Sebastian Maniscalco at Helium and he and the other comics were hilarious. Our stay at the Sofitel was the perfect ending to a perfect date night. We would definitely stay there again.

Elegant and great location

Would recommend Sun, Jul 11, 2010
The hotel was elegant, yet comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful (providing directions, even loaning us umbrellas during an unexpected summer downpour). The hotel is in a great location, close to shops, restaurants, and public transportation. The coffee at the hotel coffee shop was terrific.

Dining

20 Manning Grill was a short walk away, near Rittenhouse Square, and tucked away near charming rowhouses.

A Good Value

Would recommend Wed, Jul 7, 2010
My cousin and I shared a room for 4 nights at this hotel while we were in town for a family reunion. We had a room with 2 double beds which was quite large and also quite attractive. The bathroom was huge with separate tube and shower areas. There was a flat screen tv, a bose radio and the beds were luxuriously appointed. We thought it was a great room and that we had gotten a really good value for our money. Parking was high in my opinion ($36/day), but after the first night my cousin found a lot around the corner for $24. We did not partake of room service or the restaurant but we did enjoy cocktails at the upscale bar. The concierge was very helpful with sightseeing info. The lobby was beautiful and it was kind of sweet how the staff would say "bon jour". That made it a little extra-special.

Dining

Rittenhouse Square is an urban park only a few blocks away. There's a place called Parc right across the street that has vintage cocktails and great food. The inside spills out into the street in the nice weather. Nice restaurant, but not inexpensive. Also try out Monk's Cafe on 16th St. If you are a beer aficionado, they have lots to choose from. They also serve dinner and have wonderful deserts. We had some great breakfasts at both Marathon Grill and Little Pete's Diner.

EXCELLENT PHILLY EXPERIENCE

Would recommend Sun, Jul 4, 2010
We visited from Ireland to celebrate our 40 th wedding anniversary in the company of US relatives . It had been our first visit to Philadelphia , and for the duration of our stay over a 7 day period we had no bad experiences .We were even able to overlook a few days where Temperatures of 95 F and 80% humidity had the natives complaining ,but fortunately these weather conditions were short lived. An air- conditioned hotel was most welcome.

Dining

Rittenhouse Square restaurants ...all very good , reasonably priced , and very busy .

Good for good kids too

Would recommend Mon, Jun 28, 2010
Ours was a combo business and pleasure trip. My husband and I and our three small children were more than comfortable here. Even though it's technically not permitted, we were able to easily fit two travel cribs in the room with us. The housekeeping staff was incredible. They even folded the baby blankets and propped the stuffed animals on the bed. The valets and bellman were also extremely accommodating, helping us with all our extras anytime we needed it. During our stay, the hotel was almost completely booked due to a city-wide convention, and you never EVER noticed that certain kind of stress I've seen from hotel staff during those kinds of events. They handled things like an overflow of checked bags and an influx of valet requests with patience and professionalism. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone considering a stay in downtown Philly.

Urban and Luxurious

Would recommend Mon, Jun 28, 2010
Sofitel was perfect - staff went out of their way to ask guests if they needed assistance or had questions. Our group found it to be family friendly (others in our group had a toddler) while still maintaining an urban chic atmosphere. Great location and very reasonable prices for the area!
