I liked how cozy our room was. The snacks provided in the lobby were delicious! The location was amazing. We were able to walk everywhere, which had been our goal. Overall, excellent hotel! I wish the bathrooms were a bit bigger.
Super accommodating staff and convenient location. The rate for a last minute Saturday booking was also a nice bonus! Will definitely stay again.
I LOVED being able to get seltzer water in the lobby 24/7 and I loved the coffee machine in the lobby, too! The computer workspaces in the lobby were also very, very helpful. It didn't have a lot of silly extras -- the rooms were spare but completely adequate. The maids actually left the towels alone if they were hanging (so they weren't laundered needlessly). My husband complained that the bathroom was so cramped and that he had to hold the toilet seat up when he wanted to pee. The fridge was in a cabinet which wasn't installed so well so it was tricky to close.
It was a very comfortable and clean room. Probably taller than it was long but unless you're bringing a pop-up trailer with you there's plenty of room. The bed's comfy and the shower is really nice. They had a hair dryer to use. There's no fridge but that's not a huge deal. I would have liked to have a safe since it is a city, but it's not in a rough area. Some people complained about the two elevators, which is a bit odd but not so much so that you should be like the one guy I passed who was trying to figure out how to get out of the lobby (I mean he got in there in the first place, somehow). There's a big mall with a food court right across the street and all manner of fast food in the block between 15th-16th not to mention most everything you'd want to see or do is basically walking distance (under 1-1/2 miles - South Philly/Italian Market, Liberty Bell/Independence Hall, Eastern State, City Hall, Chinatown). I'd really recommend the hotel, and that you do walk places, don't take the tourist bus, you'll see a lot you wouldn't otherwise. Someone else complained about the parking, I had no issues, it's a city, you pay to park, and it's not like you're walking more than half a block (it is literally across the street). WiFi speed: 18-20MBps was what I got. The staff while extremely polite were not really the most helpful, everything was "It's not my call" when it came to business. I had to jump through a bunch of hoops just to get my stay extended, and they had me put down $50 per night for incidentals (would've been $150 if I'd used cash). There's no mini-bar and I wasn't planning on ordering room service, so this made no sense to me.
Rooms were very clean like the coffee set up for the guest and especially the water. Employees very pleasant and accommodating N/A
Great staff. The listing mentioned free parking. It was not- only 35% off
The room was a little dusty and the bedding looks worn. I found hair on the desk which was a little off putting. Otherwise the room was fair for the price and location.
The room and the location were perfect. If you want to be in the heart of Philly it's a great choice. Comfortable beds One staff member was a big abrasive when answering questions and handling issues. I might as well have been dealing with a machine, but this was really just one staff member in particular. The other gentlemen helping me was much more well-mannered.
Comfortable bed, good sized room, great location, great room service. The fire alarm kept going off throughout the night and we didn't have any hot water and could not shower in the morning.
No real room service. Showers not great.
Affordable with nice accommodations. There was always water, sparkling water, tea, and coffee available in the lobby. To operate the elevator you have to put your key card in, which made me feel safe. There were snacks in the lobby the first night we got there and then they all disappeared...it was weird!
Location The staff is poor when it comes to taking care of customers. Will never stay there again.
The hotel has a very nicely decorated interior and decent-sized rooms, especially for the location. Arrived at 3:30 pm and was told that my room was not ready. Had to walk around town for a while until I received their call that my room was ready, which I got at around 5:45 pm. I was only staying one night and I feel slightly ripped off as I was not able to relax and shower before an event I had at 6:30 pm.
Fitness center was nice and the room was clean. No rooms available at 3:00 check in. The desk clerk said he would call when a room is ready but he never called. The maid was the nicest hotel employee. The staff said they have self parking but that is not true, it is just side door valet parking.
Clean, friendly Expensive, not as many amenities as other hotels up the street
Racist white staff.
Fully recommend this hotel
King sized bed. Way over priced, took forever to get water sent up to our room, parking is expensive too...
Luxurious rooms, great location, right next to Rittenhouse Square. Parc restaurant around the corner is amazing. Hotel was late getting my room ready. Tried to check in at 3, was told a room would be ready in half an hour. They never called to say it was ready, but when I went back to the desk at 5, they had plenty of rooms. Also, asked about complimentary airport shuttle and was told there was one every 30 minutes. Shuttle was on time, but the driver insisted it was not complimentary, charging me $10 when I got to the airport. Didn't have time to argue, but front desk should have been clear when I asked about a "complimentary" shuttle.
Location A little dated and the front desk is a little all over place
Very convenient location. Clean room. Good fitness center. Several other parking options less than a block away for less $ than hotel parking. The front desk staff were not very helpful upon check in and volunteered no information at all. Hotel has no in house lobby bar.
Huge room, comfortable bed This hotel is unsusuccessfully trying to be a luxury hotel, which it does look like. Looks aren't everything though. The way you're treated by the staff is most important in a luxury hotel. This where the Warwick falls flat on its face. The "doormen" never acknowledged us going in or out. When the bellman showed us to our room, we asked where the ice machine was, instead of filling our ice bucket, he showed us where we could get our own ice--pretty classy guy. Now for the maid service: When we showered the first morning, there ware only two hand towels, one of which we had to use as a bath mat. My husband asked one of the maids on our floor for a couple more hand towels. Her reply was that she had none! We had to call housekeeping to ask for extra hand towels and a bath mat. When our room was done that morning, we got a bath mat, but no hand towels. They also failed to replace our coffe, coffee cups and drinking glasses. We were givien an hour extension for check out, but our maid knocked on our door three times to ask when we were checking out. All three times she knocked on the door were before noon! If Radison wants to run this hotel as a high-end hotel, they need to actually train there entire staff how to serve their guests.
The location is great, and overall the hotel Is attractive and well maintained. Most of the staff are excellent, from the front desk to the cleaning staff. They were helpful and courteous. Relative to similar hotels in the area, it's a great value. This stay (our 4th, but first since it's no longer a radisson) we encountered a MAJOR problem at 4am, and with two young children to be displayed in the middle of the night without our belongings was awful. The night staff and cleaning staff were great but the manager on duty was unbelievably awful, as if we inconvenienced her when her shift started at 8 -- 4 hours after we started dealing with the issue. Instead of commiserating with awful circumstances and asking how we could be helped to be comforble, she mostly left us to or own devices to figure out clothing, food, and basics for two little children who'd been up all night, and had to be pressured to provide basic information about a plan for us to be able to leave. Unreal.
Fitness facility is great. Some rooms are in need of a little tlc.
clean, nice staff, secured parking, spacious rooms, microwaves in room, no smoking, comfortable bed and sheets Daily parking was over $40/night
Beautiful boutique rooms N/A
Great location, clean and very friendly hotel staff. The Art Bar left a lot to be desired. Poor food and service.
Noisy and crowded they day we were there a plain clean serviceable hotel Two things. Our room was between two college kid rooms with multiple tennants. They were polite but busy Other was we went to happy hour and the price was not honored
the view and the room was lovely, the hotel is close to the city hall and to the museums. Bar on the first floor is good. The pool was not very clean (passable) and people had to ask several times for towels. The pool area can be a great place - just add some plants, get rid of ugly fence, put a bar there....
The staff was friendly, respectful and professional.
Great location to tourist sites. Rooms are moderdon, clean, spacious. Room are not very sound proof.
Clean & facilities are modern Room is describe with "city view", only view is an office building across our room. No full service restaurant in the hotel but walking distance to everything.
I love the nicely decorated rooms and modern feel. Great location. Rooms not quietly. Could hear all traffic from the street and noise from other rooms and I was on the 9th floor. Would like to see Sonesta to replace those thin windows with something better.
It's clean, the rooms are really nice, and it's in a great location. I have no complaints. This place was awesome.
The bedding is super comfy and the overall look is modern and very pleasing. Great staff. The room was a tad too small for me.
Construction at an adjacent building seemed to go on all night long. Unable to have any silence or sleep. And then there was a taxi "horn-honking" demonstration in opposition to Uber. Worst hotel experience of my life.
Everyone was friendly, my room was rather large and I enjoyed the ambience. My room was mainly clean but I felt like certain surfaces needed another wipe.
The whole staff is professional and friendly. When they say hello,good morning or ask how your stay is going, it's all sincere. It doesn't sound like a chore or they're just doing their job, they really care!
I love all the little extras that the Sofitel in Philadelphia provides… Waters that you don't pay for and offers of more water on request. A really comfortable chair to sit at at the desk, multiple outlets for electronic things, a good blow dryer, a fabulous bed for comfort, great decorating and design that is amazing. I love the amazing service and delicious food like the squash soup that Sofitel offers in their dining area. I appreciated that when I asked about my boarding pass being printed out Anthony from the front desk immediately went there and did it within 30 seconds for me. The staff, from the maid service to the front desk to the waitresses to the hostess to the Bellman, are all incredibly friendly warm helpful but appropriate.
The staff was the best part. They went above and beyond to make my stay the best it could be. I wish the breakfast was included during the week. Needing to order breakfast in the morning is very time consuming.
Had a prepaid reservation for Sofitel and arrived a day late due to a family emergency. I did not have time to call the previous day and when I arrived the manager said they had cancelled my reservation, charged me for one day and that he 'would help me find another hotel.' Pathetic, at least could have called me before they cancelled my reservation. Never stay at the Philadelphia Sofitel again.
There were many stains on mattresses, Knicks on walls and doors, bedside glasses were not cleaned/replaced each day, gym was filthy with sweat stains on machines and equipment and floor. This hotel is desperately in need of an upgrade/remodel
They found and provided a mailing tube for us so that we could pack a poster and didn't have to mail it home. I little pricier than I would have liked.
The Sofitel in Philadelphia is in a great location. It has beautifully appointed rooms, and the staff are gracious and warm. Typically, I feel very comfortable in any room I stay in. However this time, the air conditioner didn't work properly, and the shower didn't drain properly. It did dampen my enjoyment of the hotel.
Location is perfect for shopping and eating. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. Loved the slippers, thick towels and soft sheets. Lanvin bath products - wow! Nothing. I would easily stay here again if I can find a good rate.
The staff and service were impeccable.
Love the hotel and the location. The bar was nice and the French fries late night were amazing. Met an old friend in Philly for one evening. We had a great day in the city, a wonderful dinner and retired to the room at eight PM to get reacquainted. At 10:15 we had a hotel staff member knock on our door to tell us we had noise complaints and to keep it down!!! There was also a note under our door say pleas keep it down the walls are very thin!!! Really??? 10:15??? And they want Philly to be known for the city of LOVE but only if you whisper! Disappointed the staff actually came up to tell me that. I will not be staying there again if I am doing anything but sleeping!
Te walls are paper thin. You can hear what everyone is doing around you.
Wonderful service, beautiful hotel. The beds and linens are very comfortable, as are the bath robes they lay out for you. We were celebrating a birthday and the extra touches were very much appreciated. The rooms can use a bit of updating, but all in all it was an excellent experience and will likely return again next year for another birthday celebration!
Beautiful spa and facilities The restaurant closes too early.
It was comfortable and quiet. The staff was well trained and gracious. It was well located for me.
The hotel rooms were luxurious and left no stone unturned as far as comfort and cleanliness. They thought of everything even as far as robes, slippers, newspapers, umbrella.
the service was excellent with attention to detail.
room and atmosphere were gorgeous. staff very professional.
Very accommodating staff, large room, great location. Well appointed. The air conditioner shuddered loudly each time it turned off.
We planned a quick last minute evening in the city and booked the hotel on a whim due to its location and proximity to our favorite part of town. In terms of location, this place can't be beat. You're within walking distance of what seems like hundreds of fantastic restaurants and highlife hotspots. The hotel staff is courteous and made us feel instantly welcomed and at home. My only criticism is that the room was a bit dated. It needs renovated. The shower definitely seen better days and looks like it was last done in the early 90s. The bed was very comfortable and we slept pretty good.
I liked a LOT on December 12 Santa klaus with all the dogs around It Was simple delightfull. For me a 10 Star hotel. We spend 3 weeks and we enjoyed
Location 1) Room was extremely small and uncomfortable. 2) AC Fan cycled on and off every 15 seconds or so keeping me awake during most of my first night there. I reported this to the front desk and asked that it be fixed, but was not. I had to turn off the AC the next two nights in order to sleep. 3) We had booked several rooms for a wedding party. Only 1 was available for check in at the advertised check in time. 4) Only 4 elevators for a 25 story building made getting from floor to floor very difficult. For example: getting coffee and ice (each available at only 1 location in whole hotel) took an unacceptably long time due to long elevator waits. 5) Staff was not very helpful. One of our guests left an item in another room. I had to follow up with lost and found 3 times before I was able to get it back. 6) in short...while I've stayed in many hotels in my life, this is one of the worst experiences I have had. Next time I will stay in a Red Roof or similar....my experiences there have been much better. This was certainly the poorest "value for dollar" that I've ever experienced.
The hotel was pet friendly Hotel need a pool
Friendly and accommodating staff Plenty of nearby restaurants No business center (but front desk was helpful)
Friendly staff. Good location. $50 for valet parking. Still not sure where they parked the car....
We loved the service and the wine hour. Great ambiance in the lobby. Will definitely stay at Kimpton hotels again. None.
Great located, clean and comfiy. pretty new rooms. Nice staff No free wifi (pretty oldfashioned) No parking, 48 $ for one day valet was pretty expensive.
Absolutely LOVED staying here. My boyfriend and I stayed here after the marathon. Bottled water when we arrived, champagne and the staff upgraded our room! We got there 3 hours earlier for check-in and because our Queen room wasn't ready yet and my boyfriend was visibly exhausted from the marathon, they gave us a King room that was ready. The rooms are the perfect size, comfortable bed, clean bathroom with amenities, and room service was fantastic. Free wine social hour by the fire was incredible. Hotel is centrally located with a lot of great food surronding. We'lol be staying here anytime we're in Philly! 18% gratuity and 5$ service charge placed on the food service is a bit excessive. The lady (who was so sweet) brought the tray into our room and had me sign a receipt that had a tip option on it. Just mad it a little uncomfortable. It didn't take away how amazing the food was though!
My fiance and I visited for the holiday weekend. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room ammentities were updated. Great views of city (of your on the right side of the building). king size bed was nice to have although it wasn't especially soft. Room was cleaned every afternoon for when we returned. They have decent free wine ever day between 6 and 7. The hotel lobby and elevators and hallways were nicely decorated, full of art. Room size was just average, didn't have much if any more room compared to other hotels. The shower was nothing special, same size and same shower head I would find at a 2 or 3 star hotel. Nothing was inclusive except for a few toiletries you may have forgotten at home. We had a weird Brown smudge on one of our end table drawers that room service had to clean up. Only 4 elevators for 25 floors of rooms was bad, if your in the top floor like we were we had to stop at 4-5 floors going up or down before we arrived at our room or the lobby. Ice is Only on one flone which is extremely inconvenient. These negatives were a big let down, overshadowing the positives for the price you pay.
We were in town for a wedding and gifted our reservation for Hotel Palomar to the newlyweds for the evening after their wedding. The staff at Hotel Palomar was fantastic- they quickly and easily added names to the reservation and a bottle of prosecco and lovely note was in the room when they arrived. They loved the room and we loved knowing they were well taken care of! No complaints!
My hubby and infant stayed at this hotel for new years day, and we loved our experience. It was convenient to downtown philly, our city view king was spacious for a downtown hotel, and the hotel extras, like happy hour, morning coffee, and all day hot cocoa were lovely!
I have stayed at Kimpton hotels on the east and west coasts and I have always had an excellent stay. The rooms are clean and well decorated, the rates reasonable, the staff warm and welcoming and the customer service exemplary.
The room was very nice and fit our needs well. We thought the bed was as comfortable or even more comfortable than ours at home, which says a lot. Our shower didn't work. After a hot night outside at the Cold Play concert, we wanted to take showers before going to bed. However, when you pull the knob to turn on the shower, it came right out of the faucet. It was almost 1 am in the morning and we didn't want to call anyone. So we opted to take a bath but it was not what we wanted. Hence the reason I only gave the hotel a "Good" rating.
The location was great. It was very close to everything. The staff was friendly and helpful. It wasn't worth the money for what you got. It nickel and dimes customers for everything and amenities were overpriced. Parking, snacks, water. There isn't a microwave or fridge in the rooms. A fridge was provided upon request but it was not in the best physical shape. The tub and cups weren't the cleanest
Location, shopping convenience, room decor, Large Smart TV, Raiin shower, Bed and comforter. All terrific. Nothing not to like
This Westin is very well located! It is located directly across the street from the HUB Cityview for business meetings. It is one mile from the Liberty Bell, so the walk was great. There were plenty of restaurants to pick from around the area without going by cab. The Westin has a very nice bar which served us some very nice dinners. The staff was over the top great. Our room was so nice. A fall festival which was quite large was set up for Saturday right near the Westin. It was a great experience for us!
The bed was really nice. The toilet seat needed to be replaced.
Great location and atmosphere Prices of food and drink
The rooms are beautiful. We stayed on the top floor (15th). There is always an elevator available. The staff was very friendly. The shower was the best I've ever used in a hotel. It had a HUGE rainfall style top with a wand for all the hard to reach places and adjustable water pressure. The hot water was nice and HOT. And the bed was amazing! The view of the nearby skyscrapers was beautiful and it's in the best location to shop till you drop! I would stay again but I would only book through kayak because I got the room for about $100 less per night!!!! The only downside was that I requested a quiet room and found the ice machine directly across the hall from me. I only heard a few people in the hall so it could have been worse.
I had a quick one night stay in Philadelphia and chose the beautiful Westin. My room was first class,and service was exceptional. I will definitely stay here again .
Excellent location. Lounge/bar area very nice with very friendly wait staff. Best dirty martini in town! Cleaning staff were called three times before we could get our room cleaned on second day. However, that led us to check out the bar while we waited for the room to be cleaned.
they overbooked. I had to find other accommodations.
I cannot think of one thing negative to say about it. It was just lovely in every way. Everything was perfect.
Great small hotel! The location is superb. Close to Philadelphia's sites, restaurants, and shopping; but a very quiet side street in the heart of the city. The staff was very helpful, considerate, but not overbearing. The white wine reception was a very nice touch. The only problem was that the room air conditioner was loud.
The suite was very nice and clean, the staff excellent...
This is the best place to stay in Pholadelphia, perfect location, perfect staff.
I found my studio to be well appointed and comfortable. The location is excellent and the hotel staff are friendly and helpful. There was a lot of street noise (people partying) up until about 2:30am and I wonder if somehow there could have been better sound insulation. A minor point is that there was no dish drainer.
We loved the comfort of the king size bed. Having a kitchen gave us the opportunity to cook in or bring back leftovers to reheat in the oven or microwave. My husband could watch TV in the livingroom while I had the TV in the bedroom. We could not find any reason not to stay there again. The location was perfect for our appointments and the comfort of the room was fantastic.
Stellar hotel and concept that leaves out all the things you don't need or want -- like a crappy hotel restaurant and bar -- to focus on the things you do: great, comfortable spaces and design. The staff is fun and informed and very helpful. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Philly now that I know about the AKA. The cab driver (and many others in the city) don't know about it. I got dropped off the the Rittenhouse Square hotel juts across the square. No biggie, just make rue you're at the right place.
Comfortable hotel, nice neighbourhood, in the city center
James (on the desk) was a great help to us ; we were also able to negotiate a fee comparable to a different facility. It is expensive but in a great location and has large rooms. I hope to stay there again. the breakfast is very basic. Yoghurt and a muffin! some of the desk staff were much less helpful whilst others went out of their way to make sure we were well cared for.
The room was very comfortable. The location is great. the price was very reasonable and the staff very nice. The room was a little bit noisy during evenings and nights. I think it would be nice to put double glazing.
Location and high quality of the appartment
The staff was friendly, efficient, and happy to help. Prior to check in I requested a room with a nice view of Philly on their website and was not disappointed!! Great location - very close to restaurants, parks, & bars. The rooms were as I expected. Beds are very comfortable! Bathroom is just a little on the small side but very bright and functional. The hotel provides a keurig with k-cups in each room as well as free water bottles. The driver service they provide is excellent! You have to allow a little time because the driver is shared among all the guests but the drivers are very knowledgeable and essentially provide you with a private tour of Philly en route to your destination! Parking is extra, but we expected that in the middle of Philly. Elevators are tight but completely functional. At other times I saw the front desk backed up but I never had to wait to speak with the staff.
Our second stay at the Latham, staff was very accommodating and went out of our way to give personal attention. The corner rooms are awesome, bed was delightful! its a great location for all of the amenities Rittenhouse has to offer.
Quick, easy check in. Friendly courteous staff. Room clean and comfortable. Provide courtesy rides within the local area in a chauffeured Audi A8. Dropped me off at front gate of Franklin Field for Penn Relays.
Fantastic location and complementary town car is very convenient $40+ to park per night
Room was very nice. Not large, but as a single traveler it was more than I needed. I love the location. It is great for folks who are enjoying all the great venues within a 10 minute walk. Folks were polite, and coming and going was very simple. Really nothing to add here. The place is really nice.
Great price, great location, very friendly and accommodating staff
Wonderful stay. Great accommodation, clean rooms, great service.
Clean, very comfortable, spacious room and bathroom. Great location The key card access for the elevator was problematic. It didn't seem to work dot anyone, not even the staff!
I picked the Latham for its location, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. There was nothing that I didn't like.
The staff was excellent from the time we arrived, they helped us with our luggage and car. They were welcoming to our dog and just let us know they were there to serve, Our overall stay was a great experience, there was really nothing that we as a group did not like.
This hotel is welcoming, comfortable and elegant. In addition it is conveniently located near center city Philadelphia making it feasible to walk to most concerts or restaurants (or shops). Fingerprint smudges on white doors made us wonder about how often the common surfaces were cleaned.
Really a hidden gem in the city. Room looked like they just remodeled it, the bed and pillows were comfortable. Living room and kitchen were a surprise. I had the room on the top floor, very narrow stairs dragging a suitcase up was a bit tiresome. Breakfast started at 7:45 which was too late for me because I had to be at work, so I missed it.
Location and price Don't know how I missed it, I should have gone with a non-shared bathroom
I would definately recommend staying her
Amazing hotel, afforcable price! Hotel was 2 separate buildings that were adjacent to each other... kinda annoying that we had to leave our building to enter the other for everything
This hotel felt like being home. The staff was welcoming, the room was nice and the continental breakfast was very good! The hotel was walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go so we left the car in the parking garage the whole time.
Nice place This was a shared bath, but didn't see shared bath in the listing.
Very nice neighborhood, felt very safe with nice restaurants. 20 minute walk to central downtown. Lovely older home with lots of information on local area. The room was large and comfortable, the shared bath very clean. WiFi worked well. Very good value. I was surprised that there was not a hot breakfast on week days but there were fresh scones and a large selection of cold foods so not really a problem.
Charming facility in a great location. Staff was very friendly. Nice kitchen, but otherwise few amenities. TV did not work well.

Location, cleanliness, facilities Concierge, room proximity to Elevator
I arrived at check-in to find that my room had been given to someone else earlier in the day (this is after receiving a follow-up confirmation email earlier that morning). I was given an alternate room in a building that was completely across town which was newly renovated and nice but it required a cab ride to get there and it was not the extra step I wanted to take after a long day of travel.
