Overview

This hotel is in a great location near Rittenhouse Square
On-site amenities are limited

Located in the Rittenhouse Square area, the Sofitel Philadelphia faces steep competition from the Hotel Palomar (across the street) and The Rittenhouse. However, this luxury Sofitel property rises to the challenge with accommodating staff and modern decor. Recent guests rave about the cloud-like beds and clean design found in every guest room. Previous visitors also praise the upscale amenities, which include Lanvin bath products, marble bathrooms, fully stocked minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi access. While most recent guests report a pleasant stay overall, some do bemoan the hotel's minimal amenities and exorbitant valet parking fees. But apart from these slight drawbacks, visitors cite plenty of reasons to return, including the sophisticated setting and delectable French fare offered at Liberté Urban Chic Lounge.
