Awesome.

I stayed at Sofitel for one evening, but I certainly wished I had a few more nights! The bathroom was marvelous and luxurious, as was the bed. Plus, the concierge was very helpful!

Easy access to cool stuff and comfort

The hotel is on a corner of Sansome street which has everything you could possibly need on it. There's just a ton of great stuff in a couple of blocks walk. So, we were very pleased with the location. The hotel was very nice. Fantastic amazing bed. I think they actually need the location and great stuff nearby to lure you out of the comfortable bed.

Excellent accomodations and service.

The Sofitel is in the heart of downtown. Easy walking to shopping, restaurants and clubs. Subway within walking distance as well. One of the more enjoyable hotel stays I can remember.

Great hotel!!!!

The concierge was very accommodating and valet was very quick! It is in a great location for shopping and there are a variety of restaurants near by. The hotel was very clean and they always made our bed and supplied our room with fresh towels when we stepped out to sightsee. Overall it was definitely a "luxury" hotel. Check in and check out was very quick as well and there was always someone to help us with our bags etc. The beds were also very comfortable! Almost like sleeping on a cloud.

Convenient, friendly staff, avg. room

The hotel was very conveniently located to all center city attractions such as Old City, The Franklin Institute, The Art Museum, etc. The staff was friendly and check in and check out were fast and easy. While our room was very clean it was hot and the temperature didn't change no matter what we did to the thermostat. I also found the rooms to be very "average" in decor, appearance and size. Our room didn't have a coffee maker which was a disappointment.

Elegance in Philadelphia

We had a wonderful time doing sister-bonding with leisurely mornings in the room made lovely with the courtesy coffee from downstairs and delectible croisants that could be purchased to go with the coffee . Staff at the hotel was friendly and helpful. Our room was beautifully appointed, light and spacious. The bathroom large with nice finishes and lovely soaps and shampoos. Everything was elegant. The location was perfect - just off Rittenhouse Square with a great shopping area right outside the door, easy walk to U Penn, nice walk to river, nice walk to the south side and the Liberty Bell -
