I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel! I booked the room after being given a tour of my room options (I wasn't sure if I wanted a suite all to muyself). I picked a room that was one size below a suite for the following weekend. When I arrived I was greeted with the same freindly smiles as I had on my first visit. I enetered my room and fell in love! The bed was amazing - so much so that I nearly bought one! (they offer them for sale through their website). I even chatted with the housekeeper that I was taking a "stay-cation" and she left and returned with tea light candles so I could have a candle lit bath! From top to bottom the staff was friendly and helpful, the hotel was spotless and beautfil! I now plan my vacations based on if the city has a Sofiel for my stay.

They bend over backwards for your requests here. The guest is god. Its crawling with business travelers and what I assume are folks wanting to appear like part of the elite business traveler crowd? Is that such a thing? I swear I saw them. There's a restaurant and bar on site that definitely serves people other than hotel guests, which is nice when maybe you're short on time and can't go sightseeing, per se, but would like to feel like you saw more than your hotel TV screen. The place has a distinctive style, which I like because it makes it memorable--so many hotels just blur together in the travelers memory. I'll definitely remember the vast, shiny lobby floor and panels hung with modern art.

Very stylish hotel in a prime location. I wandered through lobby/lounge/art gallery for a minute before I could locate the actual front desk, and I felt like I was in a catalog for chic downtown living. I didn't love that first impression, but the room itself was stunning and s p a c i o u s. Hanging out in the on-site bar and restaurant makes you feel like part of the fast-paced Philly scene. People and cars stream by the floor to ceiling windows, diners nibble on small and artfully plated entrees, you could step out the doors and be at any number of bars, clubs, venues, or shops within minutes. It's sensory overload until to get up to the room.


Old Bay popcorn! Yes, I am from Baltimore and proud of it. I couldn't believe they had this as a snack in the chic downstair lounge. Loved this hotel, simply beautiful and luxurious. The location was perfect for me, in the heart of the downtown near everything. Felt very pampered here.

Beautiful downtown hotel in a great spot between Rittenhouse Square and the Convention Center. Rooms are spectacular and fully decked out for luxury living. I loved hanging out by the roaring fireplace at the Liberte Lounge - watching people walk by on the street. There is no swimming pool (ugh) and the staff were not as friendly as I would wish, but overall a very good place to stay in the heart of Philly.
