A stay at the Sofitel in central Philly puts you in the chic French Quarter area and near Rittenhouse Square, named after its tree-filled park and home to some of the city’s best restaurants and boutiques. Housed in the former Philadelphia Stock Exchange Building, the French-influenced Sofitel has reworked the historic space and infused it with a look and vibe that are both French in flavor and subtle in American style.
Bed and Bath
The hotel’s 306 guestrooms are seriously spacious, fitted with plush beds, oversize desks and large marble baths. Expect American touches like Quaker furniture mixed with refined details, such as Lanvin bath amenities. Group travelers and families can cozy up in the 400-square-foot Luxury Two Beds Rooms, while for longer stays, the Junior Suites offer 500 square feet of space and separate living areas; many rooms have views of the Liberty One and Liberty Two buildings.
Keeping with the Sofitel brand’s French roots, you can enjoy delicious eats at Chez Colette, the hotel’s stylish restaurant (named for the famed author), which serves breakfast only. End your day with a cocktail at Liberté lobby lounge, where the signature White Grapefruit Cosmopolitan and Real Raspberry Lemon Drop are favorites among the after-work crowd. For exercise fiends, the hotel’s fitness center is open around the clock, and the great central location means the Philly is best navigated on foot.
In the Area
Learn absolutely everything there is to know about the U.S. Constitution at the National Constitution Center, the only museum in the country dedicated to We, the People. Parc Brasserie in Rittenhouse Square pays tribute to French café culture. The breakfast and brunch menus are a favorite among locals, and you may run into a who’s-who of Philly while dining. In the summer months, a river cruise along the Delaware River aboard the 48-foot schooner Summer Wind is a great way to see the city, and a big night out should include tickets to a performance by the Philadelphia Orhcestra in the elegantly designed, cello-shaped Kimmel Center.
How to Get There
We just had a great stay! The service was beyond friendly and prompt compared to most hotels I have stayed at and they could not have been sweeter to our small children — they even brought cookies and a juice box for them just to be nice. Oumar at the front door was so adorable with the kids and so great in general. The suite was great as well. We would definitely come back!!
Booked the Sofitel for a business meeting with about 25 coworkers. I was choosing between 3 hotels in the area, and the Sofitel's accommodations and rates were by far the best. Roslyn, Caitlin and Veda could not have been more helpful in helping me to book the event and preparing in the weeks leading up to our meeting. I was nervous (as I had never planned a corporate event before) but they were true partners who supported me throughout the entire process.
The event went off without a hitch - several coworkers expressed how fabulous the rooms (and beds) were, and the food was EXCELLENT. We were very well taken-care of by all of the staff, but especially by Bob and Dashmir, who were beyond helpful and constantly making sure we were happy and had everything we needed.
I would highly consider booking the Sofitel for a business meeting or personal stay!
Oumar Sylla provided us with valuable advise and professional assistance during our stay at the Sofitel.
It is a pleasure to have him around.
We commend him for his conduct!
