« Hotel was okay »

The hotel was centrally located near Rittenhouse Square so it was a great location. In terms of the hotel itself, we didn't find anything about this hotel particularly exciting. The hallway and our room smelled like smoke, despite it being a non-smoking hotel. Seemed a little weather worn.

Angela B, General Manager at Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Shari S, Thank you for sharing your review with us as your comments greatly assist us with continually making improvements to our hotel. I will certainly share your comments with our team to assist with making updates. We would love the opportunity to welcome you back for the true wow experience that we are known for and that we always strive to provide. Sincerely, Angela

« A little disappointed »

We have stayed at this hotel before, and loved it. This time, however, there were just a few blips. A little difficulty checking in, although reserved, because my first and last name had been reversed in the booking. We had booked a room with a bottle of champagne that wasn't there when we got to our room. And the cleaning people had left a wet rag on top of the magazines on the table. We love Sofitels, and would stay here again. Just a little disappointed with this particular stay.

Angela B, General Manager at Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Cathy W, Thank you for sharing your review with us as your comments greatly assist us in continually making enhancements to our service. I was disappointed to hear of your experience as this is not our standard. I have shared your review with our team to ensure that our service remains consistently high at all times. We would love to welcome you back for the true great experience you had become used to in the past and that we always strive to provide. Sincerely, Angela

« Great Service, Great Location, Very Nice Hotel »

The Sofitel is very nice hotel perfectly located in the city center of Philly. The service was outstanding and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were staying during the UPenn graduation weekend which dramatically drove up the prices (2-3 times the normal rate), hence the low value rating. Outside of these special events value is probably pretty good and most hotels in the city center had followed suit with high prices. The only real complaint I would have is the shower was very small. They have a separate shower and bath, which made for a very small shower that was uncomfortable to shower in, particularly for someone a little bigger than average. Otherwise, a very nice place to stay in Philly with an outstanding location to all the city has to offer.

Angela B, General Manager at Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel, responded to this review

Dear James A, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for Sofitel Philadelphia. I am sure that your feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. I was truly delighted to read the service from the team was outstanding, friendly and helpful. Additionally, please accept my sincere apologies for your disappointment with the shower size. Guest satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us, and your feedback is truly appreciated. I have shared it with our Director of Rooms as well. Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Thank you again and we look forward to your next stay with us! Kind regards, Angela

« I loved everything about my stay except one thing! »

I pre-paid for my 3 night stay and when I was checking in, service desk representative asked me for my credit card. I asked why,since I already paid for my 3 nights. (I don't travel very often and hardly ever stay at the hotel). She has indicated it was just for them to keep on file in case I request room service. I pulled one of my cards from my valet and gave it to her. Fast forward, I wish I knew that almost $300 will be locked from my card. I had no idea. I had only around $250 on that debit card for small random purchases. This hold put that particular account in negative and I was charged $36 overdraft $36 fee. I wish I was informed about this hold. I am only extremely unhappy for not been informed and be nicely asked for my authorization.

Angela B, General Manager at Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Alexa256256, Thank you for letting us know of your experience. I was disappointing to hear that you did not receive better communication as is our standard. I have shared your review with our team to ensure we consistently provide the best communication possible at all times. I was very glad to hear that in general you loved everything about your stay with us and I would love the opportunity to welcome you back again for the true perfect experience that we wish all our guests to have. Warm Regards, Angela

« Lovely Stay in Heart of Philadelphia »

We really enjoyed our stay at this Sofitel. The hotel staff offered uniformly great customer service. Their friendliness was just the right degree--sincere but not over the top fake. Our room was comfortable. The French-inspired decor in the room and throughout the hotel is quite elegant. My only quibble is that the bathroom door, while in a lovely French door style, does not close all the way and offered a significant gap through which one can clearly see if someone is sitting on the toilet in the bathroom. This might not be too big of an issue if you are a couple staying in the same room, but might for other situations.

Angela B, General Manager at Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel, responded to this review

Dear drummingtosca, Thank you for posting a review. Your comments regarding our bathrooms doors were very helpful and I will certainly discuss them with our team. I was delighted that you had such a lovely stay with us and enjoyed the friendliness of our ambassadors and our French inspired decor. We would love to have the opportunity to welcome you back again! Warm Regards, Angela
