Nice hotel but rooms need upgrades

codybronx 25/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

My stay was very amazing. The staff was exceptional. The rooms need to be upgraded just a tad especially the bathroom. The shower is a little outdated. Mattress was a little lumpy but we made the best out of it. I definitely recommend this hotel

I was visiting the hotel for race weekend, there was a group of us from Ottawa so we booked a number of rooms. The hotel was in a perfect location, close to shopping and restaurants and close to the start of the race! We had a nice rom and the staff were always very helpful. The concierge, Andrew, was incredibly helpful both before and during our stay... he booked us into sever wonderful restaurants and helps us find a nearby location for our, return to Canada, Covid test. He made the trip special and looked after so many little details for us... thanks again!

Anonymous Business - 22/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My experience at the Sofitel Rittenhouse square was satisfactory. The hotel is extremely well located, the bed was exceptionally comfortable, the staff were great. However the hotel is looking very tired, the cleaning in my room when I received it was okay, I found a hard boiled sweet stuck to the carpet, for the cost you get the room only, no breakfast included etc.

Staff was great and the location was superb. We liked our room with one very small recommendation … we would have preferred a desk or small table rather than the tall table. We were very happy overall and cannot emphasize enough how accommodating and helpful all of the staff was.
