I usually stay at Marriott hotels, but tried this one, and was pleasantly surprised, the rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel is within walking distance downtown. The price was reasonable too. The hotel was under construction, putting in a Ruth Chris; which will be nice. The only issue I had was I checked out and later noticed they added $8 for two water bottles to my bill; it was not clearly marked in room that these were additional charge. Usually hotels state $4.00 for bottle. I had u... Read more

I was in overnight for a business event, and the room was average sized, and was nicely decorated. It's located in downtown Philly (my hometown) so it isn't far off from Old City. There are a TON of excellent places to eat, so you will not need the room service. What you will need is a great location with a short drive to the airport, is close to tourist areas, and is close to great restaurants with a very clean, comfortable, and modern room waiting for you.

We stayed one weeknight in May, booking through Expedia. Check-in was efficient, our room with two queen beds was clean and well laid out, with plenty of space. Room service was fast, friendly and satisfactory. The lobby bar is good, low key and not overpriced. We looked over the rooftop pool, closed pre-season but looks like it will be nice in summer.

Landed this hotel through a Hotwire special rate deal. It's a bit farther west than I usually stay but it's pretty much right on Market street so moving around is about as straight forward as it gets. Early check-in was no problem. Good service pretty much all around. There's an interesting bar/cafe on the ground floor or at least it looked to be more interesting than most hotel bars. Honestly it's pretty close to a 4-star but a few things get lost in the details. Little things like the r... Read more

I highly recommend this hotel for it's location, cleanliness,friendly and helpful staff, and price. We really enjoyed our stay here as it was our first stay at a Sonesta property. The only thing I would not recommend is the food. However, there are so many food choices in Philly that, for us, it didn't matter and did not distract from a very enjoyable stay.

My boyfriend and I tend to spend at least one night a year in Philadelphia as a mini-vacation for ourselves while visiting his parents who live nearby. Historically, we have chosen a different hotel each time, but that has changed; we will now plan to stay exclusively at Sonesta due to the exceptional hospitality encountered. Our pleasant experience began the morning of our check-in, when I called to inquire as to whether or not we could change our reservation to the overnight package ‚?? to in... Read more

We stayed at this hotel when we visited CHOP. The only negative was that the room was tiny, but we were only staying one night. I would recommend a club level room, the lounge made it worth the stay. My son swam in the pool, which was clean and there were plenty of towels. I felt safe and the staff was helpful. It was only a ten minute drive to CHOP, an easy drive. It is only a couple of blocks from the Comcast center and City Hall.

I chose this hotel as I was asked to attend a conference being held in it. I booked using the conference rate. I was given Room 2527 which is the corner room on the top floor. It was a very cozy room; European-small but very well appointed with a super comfortable bed and pillows, desk, dresser, small but modern bathroom, mini-fridge and an ottoman posing as a guest chair. I liked the room very much for (1) being sort of private and having 1 1/2 walls of glass and (2) for feeling like a tr... Read more

Easy to find and an easy walk from the station (which we used) and not too far from the centre of town ..... a little bit further to the piers but not a terrible walk.

I have stayed in a number of downtown Philadelphia hotels over the past few years, and I would choose to stay elsewhere for a number of reasons. The Sonesta is marketed as an upscale hotel, and the rooms are nice, but I did not feel it worth the price. The corridors were quite loud -- there was a large group traveling internationally the next day that caused some of this -- the meeting facilities small, and the then there was the parking situation.

I had a corner room with a king bed. The bed was nice, the pillows were not supportive enough. Digital cable using coax meant artifacting if a fly sneezed on the cable. Warm showers, middling water pressure. A large gap at the base of the door meant I had to use a towel to keep out the hallway light. I could hear everything that happened in the hallway, but not from other rooms (so, bonus?). After maid service, the room was neat. The wifi was inconsistent, and you have to renew your lease...

The hotel was very clean, even when you walked in the door there was a nice smell to the lobby. It was comfortable and relaxing, I would definitely stay again. The only thing I wished was different was that the pool was all night or opened longer so my friends who came late could've swam.

Poor customer service, disinterested employees, lack of service or assistance when issues occurred.

Valet was really bad, they would take sometimes 20 min and nobody else was in line to get their car, other times they were bringing the wrong cars out and honking at customers waiting telling them to get the car and the customer kept telling them they had the wrong car. Very scary when the cars they were bringing were Mercedes and BMW.. The pool closes early so you don't get the best bang for your buck and the lobby is pretty much non existent.

I was there for a single night for business. Very good night sleep. Isolated from noise. Very comfortable bed. Rooms are a bit smaller than the usual size rooms in Center City Philadelphia, but the price reflects it.

After walking around Philly in 90 degree heat and getting rained on, we had to use the same towels as our morning shower. As I write this, I am sitting in our unmade bed. We travel a lot and this never happens. Totally unacceptable. Also, room service ends at 11? Really??

What a great hotel. I was in town from Atlanta over the 4th of July weekend for a funeral. From the moment being met at the door by Paul who assisted my Mom with a wheelchair to Kyron Allen and the staff having a nice tray and sympathy card sign by the staff awaiting us in the room when we got back from a long day after the funeral -it was first class. Everything was clean and in order, room service was quick and customer service was great. Staying at this hotel not having to worry about anythi... Read more

On our way to Rhode Island, we stopped in Philly for the day. We decided to stay and I found this place while we were eating dinner. The room was awesome, the halls seemed a bit run down. The desk attendant gave us the wrong room number so we had to go back to the lobby to start over. He gave us two drink vouchers for the inconvenience (didn't get used, as I said we were only there overnight). The valet parking fee is outrageous so we just parked on the street. We found a sufficient lot th... Read more

Great hotel, nice location with friendly staff. The room was clean and spacious. Many great restaurants and bars as well as tourist attractions. 15 minute cab right to the stadium for concerts and sporting events. You will find out at the check it that parking costs $46 per night.

Hotel was very nice, in a good location in the center of Philly. When we checked in we were upgraded as part of our Expedia travel plan. the upgrade included club access which gave free breakfast and cocktails at night. Unfortunately the man at the desk did not tell us that this was closed on the weekend. He proceeded to tell us all about hte perks of this package, but failed to tell us that for our stay none of this would be available to us. We were later compensated by 5 $10 coupons for t...

The Sonesta Philadelphia Downtown is an excellent choice! The rooms are comfortable and immaculate. The beds and pillows after sightseeing all day are perfect. The bathrooms are sparkling clean and the mango scented toiletries are a treat. The service at the hotel is terrific. The staff is respectful, friendly, and always willing to help. Their restaurant recommendations are perfect. We enjoyed Philadelphia and when we return, we will definitely stay at The Sonesta again and would highly r... Read more

We had a fabulous experience at this hotel. Everyone from the concierge, bellman, restaurant experience & our room -- everything was tremendous. Everyone was helpful and very courteous. The customer services beyond expectation!

We were very pleased with this hotel - even better than we expected! The location was perfect: close to the trolley and train stations, and within walking distance of many of the city's attractions. Hearing of the expense to park, we did not rent a car, and had no problem at all getting anyplace we wanted to go. We put lots of steps on our Fitbit, and used the trolley for longer distances and the train to and from the airport. We also found excellent restaurants and a Catholic Cathedral wit... Read more

I was in Philly on business and this hotel was convenient to my meetings. Staff was very casual and ill-trained. Coffee shop (Art-Bar) was dirty and unimpressive. Room was adequate and worn but clean. I travel frequently around the country and this was my first stay at a Sonesta property - I will not seek them out in the future.

mosquito in my room. Housekeeping had no insect spray. I had to go out at midnight and buy some. My face is covered in swollen red bite marks. Staff disinterested. This really shouldn't happen in an air B&B room let along a top end hotel

Room I was in had two beds a desk and a mini couch. The beds were comfortable, which is important to me cause I travel a lot for work. There was a sizable mini fridge in room. My room had a tub/shower combo with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. My coworker was in a smaller room with one bed. So not all rooms are the same size wise. Bathroom amenities were posh. I wish I could take the shampoo and conditioner home!!! (They are in a dispensers mounted on the wall... More and more ho... Read more

Had I not gone into this situation expecting four-star accommodations, I would have been satisfied. However, the Philadelphia Sonesta bills itself as a luxury hotel, and there was nothing luxurious about it. At best, it was a budget motel with good housekeeping (room was pretty clean, and we tipped accordingly). At worst, it was a scam for which the hotel paid off people for all these good reviews. Despite a recent $30 million "rejuvenation," the hallways were straight out of a Des Moines Mote... Read more

Stayed here July 2nd and 3rd and had a great time! It was my birthday and Philly is only 30 min away from home so we thought we'd give it a shot. I knew very little about the city, but staying near Rittenhouse Square is a beautiful area. The hotel check-in took some time and it's kind of a cramped area, but after that it was smooth sailing. There is a nice pool on the 8th floor that we sat beside but didn't swim. The room was very nice with a fridge and coffee maker, and we ordered room service... Read more

Check in was a bit of a procedure right around 4pm, TIP come a little later if possible, seems to be staff shift change as well. Location was fabulous, we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go, and a shuttle was provided to the start of the run we were in town for! Downside: There is no breakfast available early, Upside: when i checked with staff at the cafe, they were honest in not knowing about it. I then went to the front desk, who checked and called me on my cell phone in short order ... Read more

I was in this hotel on business, and I have to say they have the most comfortable beds I've ever encountered - it was like sleeping on a cloud! This was just what I needed after a hard day in the office. Fantastic, helpful staff. I will be back!
