Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Sofitel Philadelphia building once housed the Philadelphia Stock Exchange but has since transformed into an elegant outpost of this upmarket hotel chain. The lobby’s striking marble floors use seven shades of marble and are patterned after the geometric designs found in traditional Shaker quilts. The overall style is eclectic chic, with a mix of ultramodern furnishings and classic touches.

Dark wood walls and vaulted ceilings highlight vibrant abstract art. Crown molding and draperies are side by side with a wooden parquet accent wall. All rooms have free Wi-Fi and separate seating and work areas.

In a nod to the hotel’s French parentage, every day at 5pm the hotel holds its “candle ritual,” where the lights are dimmed, candles are lit throughout the property and “La Vie en Rose,” written by French chanteuse Edith Piaf, plays in the background.

The hotel sits two blocks from Rittenhouse Square, a public park bordered by historic buildings, shops and eateries.
