    Great bed, great location. I had a great rate.

    I thought the room, and some of the common areas looked very old, not kept up. Not a five star experience as other Sofitel are. Great staff, though.

    Sometimes there is only one way to stay in old Philly, that is to stay at the Sofitel Philadelphia,full of the city energy, style & grace that Philadelphia has to offer. Classic in every way.

    Brian the concierge was excellent. He made our trip fantastic. Very enthusiastic and well-informed.

    House cleaning was perfunctory and there wasn't a sheet on the bed.

    The hotel staff was very accomodating. When we needed an extra roll away they immediately brought it up to our room.

    We wanted tthe bell captain to leave the roll away cart for us to take down and he had to stay with it.
