Verified Reviews of Sonesta Hotel Philadelphia

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Didn't know this property was under renovation"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I didn't know this property was under renovation, the website didn't mention it and I paid a pretty penny for the stay. Need more honesty, can't review a hotel that is covered in dust and tarps. Nice racket.

"Great stay, wil surely be coming back!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The hotel was nice. My room was clean and the environment was pleasant. Most importantly however, was the staff. I experienced a great deal of quality service from the staff across the spectrum. The bellman who met me at the front door was polite and upbeat, the representative at the front desk was helpful and made sure I understood how everything worked and where things were located, and lastly, the maintenance staff was swift in responding to requests and went the extra mile for me while I was there. All in all, I would say it was an awesome stay. I was coordinating a meeting for over forty people and it made things a lot easier to not have to worry about that lodging aspect of the event. They took care of everything.
