      Historical Traveler Reviews Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel

      Oooh la la

      from

      Very much enjoyed an overnight stay at the Sofitel. The lobby is quite swanky and the sleek euro-style extends to the rooms. Our superior king room was very spacious, with lots of nice touches: halogen reading lamps over the bed, Roget & Gallet toiletries, four chairs (instead of the usual one or two), a coffee table as well as a desk, and a HUGE closet with robes, a safe and an iron & ironing board. The bed was very comfortable, with 2 feather pillows which we prefer over the usual, too-firm polyester ones (there were also 2 of those so everyone is happy). The large marble bathroom offered a choice of glassed-in shower AND tub, hairdryer etc. And breakfast in the stylish restaurant was very elegant, with silver table appointments and a fresh orchid, very nice. All in all a lovely hotel that pays attention to the details.

      Nice Hotel

      from

      Just spent 2 nites at the Sofitel. Stayed in a King Jr. Suite. The members of the staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Great location !! The parking at the hotel is Valet Only which I used, although i prefer a public parking garage with access to my car and in and out priveleges. The bathroom was great.....Loved the glassed in shower stall separate from the tub. Very clean, and the housekeeping staff is unobtrusive. Very contemporary decor which is nice and functional but lacking in warmth, but that is merely a personal preference, and should not be taken as a negative reflection upon the hotel itself.

      Great room,great price

      from

      i was in town on business.and for the low rate i spent on this hotel i just knew it would be a ran down mess. boy was i pleasantly surprised!guys this is a very nice hotel.the people working their are very nice and helpful.

      Wonderful

      from

      I just returned from two nights at the Philly Sofitel and can recommend it wholeheartedly. The staff is courteous but not intrustive; the room decor is modern but not so minimalist so as to be stark. What most typified the attention to detail was the clock radio's stripped -down controls: no need for fumbling trying to see if it was set for an ungodly hour. Marble bath, separate walk-in shower, Frette robe- wonderful.

      Great in every way!

      from

      My family and I stayed at the Sofitel in December 2003 for a night after the Army-Navy game. Our rooms were beautiful and huge, the staff was very friendly and helpful and breakfast the next morning was outstanding and reasonable for a hotel breakfast. My only complaint was that the mattress the the room my husband and I stayed in wasn't terribly comfortable. I mentioned this to the desk person when we checked out and she wrote it down and said she would tell housekeeping.

      I received a letter a few weeks later thanking me for complimenting them on their hotel and restating that the mattress would be replaced.

      It was was one of the best hotel stays I have experienced and the price ($179 for a king suite and $169 for a king room) was unbeatable.

      Flawless Understated Elegance

      from

      I stayed at this hotel with one of my fraternity brothers for a long weekend in order to take in some of the vibrant Philly club scene. The rooms are amazing! The bathrooms are pared away to essential surfaces of glass and marble, and feature floor to ceiling glass shower stalls.

      They treat you like a celebrity from check in to check out. I haven't encounterd a more savvy concierge even at the "best" hotels of Europe.

      He got us in Denim, Philly's hottest night spot with on phone call. No lines, no hassle...priceless!

      Better and cheaper than the four seasons in town

      from

      The Sofitel in philadelphia is superb. I'm usually a four seasons/ritz carlton visitor, and took a gamble at the sofitel- and boy am I glad I did. the service is top-notch, people willing to bend over backwards for you, the rooms are well-appointed, and the price is very reasonable. Just a week later I was at the four seasons in philly, wishing I was at the sofitel.

      Beautiful!

      from

      My husband and I have stayed at the Sofitel Philadelphia three times and continue to be impressed. The room decor is lovely, the staff is courteous and the food is great. They have a terriffic bed and breakfast special. We travel to Philly frequently and have tried other hotels -- the last time we "experimented" we left after one night and returned to the Sofitel!

      Good and cosy stay

      from

      Good sized room, European feel to it, was nice and cosy as we waited for the Great Storm of '03 to abate sufficiently for the airport to re-open. Slightly pretentious the way all the staff say "bonjour" and "bon soir".

      Nicely done!

      from

      The hotel room was spotless. We stayed in one of their upgraded rooms which was very comfortable (nice enough to live in). The bathrooms were really nice and CLEAN! The only annoying thing was the sound in the elevator. Also, we room serviced an order of french toast and the hotel was completely out of syrup. (Must be a "French" thing). I returned the dish and they charged me anyway. The problem was rectified when we got home; very painless. As a person who is EXTREMELY PICKY, I would definitely stay here again!

When I woke up we were stuck in road construction traffic with a fare of $50.00 bucks on the meter, and the driver wigging out at the slow pace. After 5 more minutes of a snails pace I told the driver I wanted to get out as I could see my hotel was only 1 block over.

I went up to my room, online it said it was 16 bed, the biggest I was due to stay at to date, I wandered around and found my bed. 16 beds?! It was 16 BUNKBEDS, that's a whole lot of females in one space. I then proceeded to make a huge mess and go out for dinner to have one of the famous Philly cheese steaks, it was beautiful. Although the waiter did try and chat my ...

At Holy Cross Cemetery in Yeadon, Pennsylvania, about 7 or 8 miles south west of downtown Philadelphia. We had a car with us so we could have driven there (by the way, valet parking in Philadelphia was 48 bucks a night - how's them apples?). But we opted for a cab instead. As we walked out of the hotel, a ...
