4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel room was large, I reserved a luxury king room. Bed comfortable. Bathroom was ok. Shower had mildew in the tile grout, eww. Intercom device in bathroom? Staff were all very nice. Very close to Rittenhouse square.

Great location walking distance from everything. The staff (especially the evening manager Hector) was extremely personable & helpful.

6 rooms. All lovely and ready on time. Our room not cleaned till after 4 but otherwise good. Skip breakfast. Food below average. Staff all friendly and helpful

Sofitel is a French chain and I've always thought I'd like to stay in one of their hotels and this trip to Philly allowed it to happen. My wife and I chatted with them several times, as our flights were delayed/cancelled and they were very helpful. It is simply a class hotel.. Great fixtures, great room service and first rate staff. You will enjoy your stay here

The minute I checked in. The hotel staff upgraded me to an amazing suite! Enjoyed my stay so much! Thank you Sofitel. Will definitely return.

The staff is courteous and accommodating. The bedding is the best I have ever had.

large room, very scant towel inventory, slightly worn hotel our room was not serviced until I called at 6:30pm, despite our absence from 9:30am-4:30pm poor wait service in lounge good location

Beautiful hotel for a great getaway weekend in Center City Philadelphia

We stayed here before and everything was as expected, except the shower had mold along floor.

Stayed for a night a few days before Christmas. The junior suite was nice and spacious. Bathroom and shower was nice and spacious as well. The bathtub was standard and left something to be desired. A nice bar and lounge by the lobby with a good happy hour. Very pleased with this hotel overall.

I've stayed at the Sofitel several times. The hotel is good, staff is great. Location is in the middle of many fun restaurants. Rooms are larger than average, beds are comfortable. The hotel is a four star, but pretty much the best in central Philadelphia.

It is a really nice hotel and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very clean.

Great staff, easy check in, comfortable bed and nice bathroom

Met at door by bellman who quickly took my bags and brought me to check-in, which was quick and easy. Room was clean, comfortable and stylish. Breakfast next morning was tasty and nicely served Check out was easy and on to my meeting.

We enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and clean. We had a suite so we had a pull out sofa in the living room for our kids. The dressing area with vanity was spacious and unique in a hotel room. Lanvin shampoo/soaps etc. The location is perfect. I recommend breakfast at Federal Donut. The hotel is 2 blocks from Rittenhouse Square which is perfect and close to the shopping and restaurants on Walnut. Favorite restaurant was Melograno on 20th and Sansom. Also La Colombe for coffee on 19th and Walnut.

Beautiful hotel room was large and very clean. Valet service was excellent and employee very friendly. Would recommend it to a friend and would stay again. love the location!

This hotel was just ok for me. I didn't like the bed, it seemed old. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly. I thought the parking price of $50 per night was ridiculous. I would stay again, but this would not be my first choice.

Very friendly, clean and comfy rooms. The bed was so cozy, the Suite was so big that we didn't need another room.

My wife and I were married at the Sofitel 3 years ago and we stay there for our anniversary each year. The staff is very friendly and the check-in process is always a breeze. There are plenty of great restaurants nearby. The weekend brunch is also very good.

Very courteous staff. Interior decoration is a slightly outdated but furnishings are comfortable and clean.
