We stayed a couple of nights in the Sofitel Philadelphia and were very pleased with the location of the hotel as well as the service. There are many excellent restaurants walking distance from the hotel, we also walked to all the must see sights of Philly. The staff of the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful (we got an upgrade which was much appreciated). Having stayed in many hotels over the last year I was pleasantly surprised that the room was cleaned early without having to request it (somehow with the pandemic getting rooms cleaned seems to be difficult). Speaking of the pandemic, appreciated that the staff wore masks and precautions for guests' safety were taken.

We love coming to this hotel. It’s in the best location and the rooms are beautiful. The only complaints are for a higher end hotel you would expect better customer service from front desk & valet staff. Also, we understand that there has to be COVID protocols in place but why is room service not yet reinstated? The attendant was kind enough however to bring our food up to our room.

I recently stayed at this hotel for the weekend while visiting my daughter at college. Having stayed here many times in the past I was looking forward to returning. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with our stay. The hotel has become very rundown. The rooms are old and worn down. Carpets, furniture and bedding all look like they haven’t been updated in over 10 years. Many better choices in the Rittenhouse area to choose.

I've stayed at Sofitel Philly several time on my business travels and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The rooms are bright and clean, and the staff is smiley and welcoming, special mention to Mila at the Front Desk and Esther and Miguel at the restaurant, they were always so helpful and accommodating. Looking forward to my next visit to lovely Philly!
