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.
