Great spacious rooms here with lovely furnishings and very comfortable indeed - location of this hotel is great for shopping and business visitors. Breakfast is very popular - if you're in a rush there's a coffee station past reception. Cocktail bar is cosy opposite reception area. Old fashioned building used to be the financial stock exchange building before. Nice stay in general very happy. read hotel review

Excellent hotel, with great and efficient service. Privileged and central location, near the main city attractions. It’s possible to walk from the hotel to many places without the need of a cab or a car. read hotel review

The reason for the short review? About this hotel there was just nothing to complain about! May from the outside not so great appearance-offers but inside 5-star comfort! Who after philly drives, must in Sofitel - as i would even even the valet parking to 40 Dollar afford! End of the review! read hotel review

City hotel in good location archived

City hotel in the usual Sofitel standard. Great bed, great bathroom with l'OCCITANE products, it was missing absolutely nothing, only the slippers, the but from housekeeping were brought directly to call. Continental breakfast costs $15, great baguette, pain au chocolat, croissants-french taste. Guest parking in Phily was very expensive-cost as valet parking at the hotel the night $40! Be careful: not in room wireless Internet use, there are ten dollars per day will be charged, in the lobby it are two PCs, the actually were always free. We have Phily as a base year's eve to new in new York ... used, with the new Jersey transit train it for 50 $(back and forth per person) in 2.5 h directly in the Big Apple. It runs almost an hourly train, very punctually-Trenton-line. Amtrac double price, half-time. Can the hotel only recommend-also by bus or car to the outlet king of Prussia, Philadelphia is no comparison against the outlet! read hotel review

The hotel is located right in the heart of Philadelphia. Innumerable shopping, and entertainment opportunities are in the immediate vicinity. The hotel is for a city break in every respect to recommend. read hotel review
