OVERVIEW of Sofitel Philadelphia
We are big fans of the French Sofitel chain of hotels. We think of them as 4+ star hotels at a 3 star price.
While there are only 8 in the U.S. they are located in tourist favorites like NYC, Philadelphia, Washington, DC and Chicago. They combine location and a contemporary design with good size rooms and excellent service. All delivered with a wonderful European flair.
The Philadelphia hotel is located just steps from Rittenhouse Square in the heart of the City. Most attractions are a short walk or cab ride away. Uniformed bellman greet your car and escort you into an imposing marble lobby with towering ceilings, huge vases of fragrant flowers and comfortable seating areas. Check-in is swift and efficient.
THE ROOMS at Sofitel Philadelphia
The rooms are very comfortable at nearly 400 square feet and decorated in soothing colors of beige and rust. Soft lighting and illuminated artwork complete the picture. King beds with pillow top mattresses and down pillows make for a great night’s sleep. Rooms are equipped with wireless Internet access and fully stocked mini-bars. The marble bathrooms feature a separate shower, French bath products, robes and slippers.
DINING at Sofitel Philadelphia
Just off the lobby is the delightful Liberte Lounge bar with large windows looking out onto the street. Great place for a snack (pigs in a blanket 3 ways!) and unusual martinis. This is a hot spot at night when the lights go down. Chez Collette is a French style Bistro serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
