Everything was perfect!

Sightseeing. Everything about the hotel was perfect - the room was clean and comfortable, the staff was pleasant and very helpful when we requested information about the city. Couldn't ask for a better hotel experience.

Highly Recommended

Would recommend Mon, Apr 25, 2011
As we are a NYC couple with high standards and have stayed at 5-star properties, we were quite impressed with the Sofitel in the French Section. Overall concierge services were excellent. We were treated as special guests with trays of deserts and fresh fruits as we celebrated our anniversary. Comfortable upgraded suite with a big king bed and bath with L'Occitane products with modern decor. Early checkin and late checkout. State of the art gym with fresh apples. Hope to return and/or stay at other Sofitel properties. Purpose of visit: to tour Barnes Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art and Independence Park. On a scale of 1 to 10, this was a 10 and probably one of the best weekend trips.

Attractions

SEPTA transit very easy to navigate as it goes to all the cultural attractions.

Not the Sofitel One Has Come to Expect.

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 27, 2010
Booked a Junior Suite through [...]. After checking in, we noticed the "suite" didn't quite look like the photos.After calling the front desk and asking them to verify, we were told they "don't guarantee room types". After nicely explaining that our confirmation shows a junior suite and that I understand that most hotels don't do guarantee bed types, etc, but when guest purchase an upgrade and pay for a suite, those guests should expect a suite....After several more rounds of "you need to call [...], sorry no rooms available, your confirmation doesn't show that room type, your printout is incorrect, please hold, etc", they were able to find the correct confirmation number / room type. For nearly 1 hour, we were treated as if we were lying to staff… Not even a single apology, simply, "we found the correct confirmation number and we've sent the bellman up with a new key"Certainly not anywhere near the Sofitel experience we've come to expect. Horrible customer service and horrible (non-existent) follow-up by the hotel management.

Time saver

Great location. However, nowhere near the 4 star experience or 5 star of a typical Sofitel. Likely a nice 2 or 3 star hotel with 1 star customer service.

Great hotel with French flair

Would recommend Sun, Dec 19, 2010
Was in town for an art opening at a nearby gallery, the hotel was conveniently located to restaurants, shopping, etc. Room was spacious, nice amenities, room service food was good, hotel staff extremely polite and the place had a wonderful continental ambience. My only disappointment was that you have to pay for high speed internet, in a place of this quality, I would have expected it to be included in the room price.

Shopping hint

Check out JAG Fine Art at 16th and Pine Streets, wonderful collection of original fine art and photography.

Overall Good experience

Would recommend Mon, Dec 13, 2010
My wife and I just returned from a 4 day three night trip to Philadelphia to enjoy the Army/Navy game. We stayed at the Sofitel which was well located near public transportation, good restaurants, shopping and within about a one mile walk of many major attractions (Independence Hall, Franklin Institute, Museum of Natural Science, Mutter Museum). Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel and at $199 per night for a Jr. Suite felt we had decent value for the hotel class and location in a city like Philadelphia. A few things we liked best: The staff was very friendly and professional and made great restaurant recommendations (R2L if you want an upscale dining experience where coat and tie are not required and Pietro's for large portions of affordable casual Italian food - both of which are within 2 blks of the Hotel). The maid service was top notch, and included turn down service and complementary bottles of water. Newer flat screen tvs in both rooms and a bose wave player in the bedroom with great sound quality and a place to plug in your own MP3/IPod. The bath products were good quality and the room included complimentary robes to wear during your stay as well as a complimentary umbrella to use. There was also an in room safe for your personal possessions. The junior suite was neither small nor spacious for the class of room, it was just about what you would expect for a junior suite at a 4star hotel (500-600 sq ft). The bathroom area was nice marble and decent sized with separate shower and tub areas. Small details like loofah pads and wash mittens were included. On the "would like to see improvement side" I would point out the sofa in the sitting room was not a sleeper (I snore some nights loudly enough that my wife may switch rooms) some of the furnishing was starting to show some age, the mattress was a bit on the soft side for my wife and me who are used to sleeping on a firm memory foam bed and the bedding does not include a top sheet. Its just a bottom sheet and a down comforter. All in all the good outweighed the negative and we would consider staying there again for our next visit to Philadelphia.

We came up for the holidays to visit family. The staff was friendly. The hotel is in a good location, convenient to many things. The gym is pretty good, though they could use a few more pieces of equipment. Overall a good stay

Time saver

The hotel is close to shopping, restaurants, nightlife and museums
