Verified Reviews of Sofitel Philadelphia

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent vacation from a home with no power."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I forgot what I had left behind once I got to this hotel. The hotel was very attractive, and it seemed "old world" or European. The hotel employees were kind and helpful. The buffet breakfast was wonderful and the restaurant employees were very attentive. The location also made it easy to entertain myself. More people than I realized knew about your hotel.

Each of our guestrooms offers a spacious marble bath and is elegantly decorated with sumptuous, yet contemporary furnishings and artwork. Multiple telephone lines with voice mail, high speed Internet access, and WebTV will keep the business travelers connected, while all guests will delight in nightly turndown service, a refreshing bottle of Evian, and a freshly cut flower waiting for them when they enter the room. A state-of-the-art fitness center is also available for winding up or down. Enjoy a creative approach to dining at Chez Colette, Sofitel's exclusive brasserie, serving contemporary French cuisine of the highest standard in a cozy atmosphere.
