10/10 Exceptional

The Sonesta is in a great location if you plan to visit Philadelphia. The hotel is secure; the rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable. This is my 3rd stay here and when I return to Philadelphia, I plan to stay here again.

2/10 Poor

Overpriced, will not return
I stayed for three nights while attending an annual festival in east June. A coworker suggested the Sonesta based on her trip to Philly last year for a similar festival. The lobby was eye catching, modern, and welcoming with a friendly faced staff member to greet you upon entry. The room was spacious but average, with NO SMART TV, and an iron from 1997. The nightly rate seems based on the steakhouse on the ground floor and not on the hotel itself. I would be happy to stay at the Sonesta for half the nightly rate I paid.

Great hotel in the heart of the city
We only stayed here one night but if we were to stay longer we definitely would book this hotel. Great location on Market street within walking distance to many sites (ex The Franklin Institute). Staff was very friendly. Hotel rooms were well sized (family of 4) and very clean. Highly recommend!!

8/10 Very good

Good stay
Very comfortable stay in central location. The only negative was the car parking charges at $50 / day for guests. This is unreasonably high. Park nearby - its cheaper

Weekend away from Boston
Took a weekend trip with my family to see Philly for the first time. We were happy the pool was open seeing how it reached 90s all weekend! The kids loved it. Staff was friendly (Daryl, I believe his name was) was awesome and attentive. He spoke to us each day we saw him whether in the halls or by the pool! Clean room, gym, common areas. Also enjoyed drinks at the bar! Highly recommend!!
