French Luxury in the heart of Center City
The location of the Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel is one of its strongest selling points — yet it is literally only one of countless reasons why you should base your stay in Philadelphia here.
The Sofitel is in the heart of Center City, the cornerstone of an area nicknamed the French Quarter. The location also puts you smack in the middle of the beautiful and vibrant Rittenhouse Square neighborhood within short walking distance of unparalleled dining, shopping and sightseeing opportunities.
The building itself is the former Philadelphia Stock Exchange Building, in which the Sofitel has infused French flavor with plenty of subtle American style.
With more than 300 rooms of unusually large proportions, averaging 400 square feet, the Sofitel markets itself as a 4½-star hotel. And deservedly so — it’s one of the top rated Philadelphia hotels on the popular travel site TripAdvisor.com.
Amenities at the Sofitel include oversized desks, large marble baths, 24-hour concierge service, luxurious robes, hairdryers, and irons/boards. Internet service is also available for a small surcharge.
Sofitel also features Liberté, an urban chic lounge offering irresistible French fusion cuisine in a cozy modern setting. You can also head to Chez Colette for breakfast with its charming 1920s-style atmosphere.
Looking to exercise during your stay? Enjoy the complimentary 24-hour fitness center with fresh fruit available. End the day with turn-down service and a bottle of Evian water, both included in your stay.
The Sofitel Hotel is a fully non-smoking establishment.
Liberté, a new restaurant and lounge at the Sofitel that opened in October 2010, serves contemporary, French-inspired food and hand-crafted cocktails in an urban chic setting.
Featuring a flavorful menu and extensive beverage selections, Liberté has become one of Center City’s hottest destinations.
Step into Chez Colette, a charming French Breakfast restaurant on the first floor of the Sofitel Hotel, and you might very well forget you’re not in Paris. The restaurant’s fresh, innovative breakfast is a wonderful complement to its classic design and feel.
