About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- It's two blocks to legendary restaurants along Rittenhouse Square, and Old City is only 12 minutes away via light-rail
- Guests can also dine in on French-inspired breakfast or weekend brunch at the on-site Chez Colette brasserie
- Rooms here are big, especially for downtown: Starting at 350 square feet, they also come with "cloud-like beds" (U.S. News & World Report)
Set in the same building that once housed the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, the Sofitel still bears many marks of its former life as the city's chief financial institution — think seven-toned geometric marble flooring, oak-paneled walls and lofty ceilings in the lobby. It has a lot of modern touches, too, like vibrant abstract art hung throughout the hotel — not to mention an enviable address two blocks from Rittenhouse Square.
The hotel's eclectic-chic vibe extends to guest rooms thanks to funky printed throw pillows and, you guessed it, more art on the walls. They also all come with spacious marble bathrooms, including separate tubs and glass-enclosed showers, plus Parisian-based Lanvin bath products. However, the real standouts are the Sofitel signature feather-top beds — they're favorites of U.S. News & World Report and Conde Nast Traveler.
There are two restaurants on site, Chez Colette and Liberté Lounge; both specialize in French classics like steak-frites and French onion soup with melted Gruyère cheese. If you're spending the weekend, we suggest stopping in to Chez Colette for brunch, where you'll find indulgent dishes like a duck-confit farmhouse skillet and a signature bloody mary made with ingredients from the rooftop garden.
