Verified Reviews of Sofitel Philadelphia at Rittenhouse Square

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Business trip flop."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Bed was terrible ( not even close to being level or firm ). Water took 15 minutes to get hot for a shower. Limited staff, unless it is Friday Sunday. TV didn't work one evening.

"High price low level of service."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The property Iredell is nice. Check in staff were very nice. Housekeeping was subpar. Forgot to leave towels, glasses and line for ice bucket. Also failed to restock mini bar. When I called to have my mini bar Re stocked and get more towels and glasses they told me that those folks had left for the day and I could go the pharmacy on the corner or pay $10 for a coke to delivered via room service. ( they did not offer to bring more towels) I understand that mistakes happen and that some things are beyond the control of the hotel. But in this case these things were within the control of the hotel and rather than remedying the issues they made it worse and failed to even try to solve the issue.

"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.
