Sofitel Philadelphia - Room for Improvement - Room 1101

TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

SEAKAYII 20/11/2020 TripAdvisor review

Inspire of getting a reasonable weeknight room rate and an upgraded corner room, the hotel restaurant and bar were closed during my stay due to low occupancy during Covid-19, There was no coffee service in the lobby, nor bathrobes in the room, and the pillows on the bed did not match. The room was quiet and clean. Nothing exceptional or memorable to recommend returning to this property.

Dear SEAKAYII, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this feedback of your recent stay. Exceptional service is what we strive to be known for; therefore your feedback is extremely important as it helps us to continually improve our service and provide a memorable experience to our valued guests. Please allow me to express my sincerest apologies for your disappointment in your experience. I will be sure to share your feedback regarding the bed and pillow with our executive housekeeper. Indeed, some of our services are currently on pause as we continue to follow the directions of our local government, as well as the CDC and our country's top scientists and health care professionals. We look forward to offering them again when it is safe to do so. During this unprecedented time, your health welfare and comfort remain a top priority for us. Kind regards, Angela

Overall a positive experience.

thompsonbct 29/10/2020 TripAdvisor review

Overall the staff was friendly and professional. Only thing negative is since ice machines are out of service due to Covid related measures, guest are instructed to go to the front desk for ice. Which is fine except for the fact the front desk is closed during the overnight hours.

Dear thompsonbct, Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback with us. It is wonderful to know you found our team to be friendly and professional. I will certainly share this review with them. Indeed, some of our services and amenities are currently on pause as we follow the health and safety guidelines from the CDC and our local officials. Your health, welfare and comfort remain a top priority during this unprecedented time. We look forward to offering these services again when it has been deemed safe to do so. We truly appreciate your support and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future. Kind regards, Angela

The staff is amazing and so accommodating- they went out of their way to bring weights to our room so we could workout since the gym was closed- and every other request from dinner suggestions to extra towels was handled so quickly with a smile. Will stay again and totally recommend this location if staying downtown.

Dear jmor6702, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this feedback. Indeed, as some of our services are on pause, our team strives to accommodate as many requests as we can while following the current health and safety guideline during this unprecedented time. I am delighted the team brought weights to your room and extra towels quickly and with a smile. Your health, welfare and comfort remain a top priority for us. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future! Kind regards, Angela

Well located but disappointing service

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Samantha D. Business - 29/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel was located in a great area and appreciated that there was a bath in each room. Downsides were, in the evenings only one staff member operated the front desk causing excessive waiting times. Had a very unpleasant experience with a front desk attendant Brittany who advised we could not sit on a chair near the bar area having a water as the area was closed. Myself and a guest proceeded to tell her we were just sitting for a moment to have a water and she rudely told us to get out and we cannot wait there. This was disgraceful as we had done this previously with no issues. In addition to the above, cutlery, straws and other items were consistently missed when ordering room service. Housekeeping would take robes and not replace them upon cleaning, room service trays were left sometimes in the room and not removed for 24 hours sometimes even out the front of the room for 48 hours. I would also suggest leaving a razor, shaving cream, coffee, tea, etc in each room these should be basic inclusions. Overall, I was disappointed in the service and unfortunately would not return. I stayed from the 2nd March to the 15th March.

Excellent Hotel

We enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel. It is very well located. Room was comfortable. It is also pet friendly which is important to us. Staff were quite nice. My only complaint was they were not busy so offered us a room upgrade. I thought since it was a small improvement in room they should have just doe that as a courtesy. They did not though. We were charged to upgrade.

Staff were all exceptionally nice. Room well appointed except the bath tub was filthy-there were hairs in it (not mine) and soap scum covering the entire thing. I discovered this late one night before an early meeting so just showered instead.

We stayed two nights, leaving a day early due to Coronavirus-caused closings and cancellations. Loved breakfast both days, had a very nice room. TV malfunctioned part of our stay. Hotel policy re snacks and drinks in room is ridiculous. Move something and you own it, whether or not you eat, drink, or otherwise consume it. The hotel was in general excellent. Great location, great service, attractive décor.

From the valet, Jose, I think that’s his name, wore a black jacket, super nice and the other guys as well. Andrew was super nice and helpful with setting up our room for my partner for his birthday. I did get the package deal. I do however think the bottle of wine that’s suppose to be $90.00 with the package, is actually only $13.00 if you went out to purchase yourself. That was disappointing for me. Andrew put flowers on our bed, well done, and received a small cake for his birthday. Three pieces of fruit which one of them were bad, the pear. Our room service breakfast which was included in the package, I ordered egg Benedict which comes with hollandaise sauce, mine had none on it bc they ran out. I didn’t want potatoes so I asked for spinach and that was forgotten and got potatoes instead anyway. They did send up the spinach but a little too late. I have to say everyone was so nice and polite the entire stay.
