The customer service was exemplary! The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The room was clean and ideal for our overnight stay. The only downfall was not having a mini refrigerator and microwave in the room.

This was my second stay at Sofitel. This hotel is so clean and well managed. It is right in the heart of the city so you are close to everything. I will be staying at Sofitel for my next visit to Philly as well!

Made me feel safe during a pandemic.

Night security guard major attitude

Friendly staff (in particular bellman Anthony). Luxury suite room was clean and in great condition. Great location in Center City, but a bit far to walk to the Independence Hall/Liberty Bell and other Old City attractions.

Friendly staff and spacious room!

I was charged for two nights only got to stay one night , the staff at hotel made no attempt to get my money back or credit me. Then I asked for two beds they gave me a queen and then had room service bring up a pull out bed. I will never book with Orbitz again or stay at the hotel.

My stay was great. I was greeted by every staff member that I passed. The front desk associate noticed that I was traveling with my infant and offered a complimentary mini fridge for my room. The bellhop, Jamal was very patient and careful with my things. He even offered to grab ice for the room after unloading everything from the cart. Suite was just as pictured, clean and spacious. The only negative that I have was our experience with the valet service. The driver sped up in my car, tires screeching as he turned in. The same driver brought down my husbands car and drove so reckless in his SUV that the heavy yeti cooler in his truck fell over, leaving his entire trunk area drenched in ice water. The driver seemed to have no awareness and jumped out each time as if nothing was wrong. As we were leaving, we also overheard someone on the valet team complaining that my husband called the car down too early (40 minute wait for each vehicle) and that it had been sitting for too long. He didn’t realize that my husband and I were standing right beside him. He did apologize once he noticed that we had two cars. For the $110 we paid for just one night, and the caliber of hotel, I would have expected better service in this area. I will say that the gentleman who actually ran the valet stand was very pleasant.

Great location in Rittenhouse Square!
