Why We Love This Hotel

  • A three-block walk to City Hall and the LOVE sculpture -- leave the car at home because parking is pricey
  • Rittenhouse Square, ringed with upscale restaurants and shops, is about four blocks south
  • Compact rooms are clean and contemporary thanks to a recent renovation
  • Free Wi-Fi and 24-hour fitness center, including a rooftop pool


The Sonesta Hotel Philadelphia is located in the Center City section of Philadelphia within a few minutes of many of the city’s major historic attractions. The hotel’s décor is updated Art Deco, with the lobby and rooms done up in varying shades of grey, white and black, and the lobby desk is a giant slab of cool white marble with a wall of textured black wallpaper behind it. Pops of red brighten up the benches and cushions.

Rooms have the same color scheme, most with city views. All have separate work spaces and free Wi-Fi. Club level guests have access to a private lounge with a free continental breakfast and snacks.

The hotel has a seasonal rooftop pool, a fitness center and a restaurant and lounge that serves light bites. For heartier fare, the Reading Terminal Market, a six-minute drive east, is a well-known indoor farmers market filled with restaurants, specialty grocers and prepared foods.
