This is an excellent hotel in a great location. You can walk to lots of the key places and it's easy access to metro lines and shopping too. Rittenhouse Square (the hotel itself is actually a couple of streets away from the square) and the area are particularly lovely. My

Dear journeysntime, First and foremost, please allow me to express my sincere apologies for our delay in response. This truly was an oversight and not a reflection of our standard in the customer service we strive to provide for our guests. Indeed, we are currently updating our guests rooms and while this does not include any major construction, there are a few tasks which result in the noises and disruption you experienced. Since first receiving your feedback we have spoken to our upgrade partners and have been working to further reduce the impact on our guests. I truly appreciate you bringing this matter to my attention. I understand our Director of Quality and Learning has also emailed you. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly should you have any additional questions or concerns. Our relationship with our guests is of paramount importance. We hope that you will present us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Angela

I’ve stayed at the Sofitel in Philadelphia a few times over the last year. What I love is the consistency in the excellent service. From the doorman who welcomes you to the maid who cleans your room, you can expect a smile, a nice word, and a helping hand. The breakfast crew,

Overall a great experience staying at Sofitel Hotel Philadelphia. Everyone was courteous, helpful, and asked if I needed anything (one name I recall is Oumar Sylla). Room service was prompt and the food was great. The hotel itself feels modern and akin to an art gallery.

Hi. Does the hotel provide baby cot? And is Parking available?
Don’t know about the baby cot but they have valet parking which is very expensive. We parked about 2 blocks away and paid $15 for overnight parking. We saved $30 plus a tip. Check around for sure.

Just saw your message regarding Sofitel in Philadelphia. Free coffee is offered in lobby and I believe there are also pastries offered for free, but I am not 100% sure of the pastries. There is a beautiful breakfast available in the hotel lobby restaurant. Our hotel package included breakfast.

"We were on the 11th floor. No view to speak of so perhaps ask for a higher floor."
"Rooms facing the main street may be better due the view, but may be prone to outsider noises."
"Ask for a view. Rooms away from the elevator are quieter"
"The higher floors are quieter. Valet parking is pricey. Dog friendly as advertised."
"Avoid this hotel if you are looking for a luxury hotel."
