Excellent location, an easy walk from bus station or train station. And the Philly Phlash tour bus ($2 but free for us old folks) stops right in front. Room was small, a petite queen they called it, but it was well-equipped, modern and clean. Just what we needed for one night. Would gladly stay there again.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed in town for a concert at Citizens Bank Park. the location was wonderful for all sorts of sightseeing. It is a beautiful city with so much to offer. I was saddened that a lot of the shops and restaurants are closed because of the pandemic. Seeing it and the difference since my last trip more than five years ago really hit home. The hotel was clean, modern and well appointed despite the fact that this is not a new building as it is right in the middle of the historic downtown. I was disappointed they closed the bar very early, but the bartender was very nice and she let us sit there while she did her cleaning after the last call. I think the whole area has suffered a lot because of the pandemic and I look forward to returning next summer when this pandemic is finally over once and for all!!!! I got a nice rate with parking included on their website and that proved to be a very good value given the average cost of parking in a larger city. It also allowed the cars in and out for hotel guests only, which is a major perk.

We were at Philadelphia for 1 night. When we booked the hotel I mentioned that I'm a light sleeper and asked for a room that is quiet. The staff was courteous and helpful. Our room was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable and I had a wonderful sleep. The hotel is conveniently located for sightseeing. The next time we go to Philadelphia, we would definitely stay at this hotel again.

The location of this hotel was perfect for our stay, it was central to everywhere we walked. The staff was great and our room was clean. The location of the toilet paper in our room was quite a reach from where you sit on the toilet which was interesting. Other than that, we had a great stay and we would stay there again!

Had the opportunity to stay at the Sonesta Hotel, while attending a wedding this past weekend. This hotel is top notch. Location is excellent, rooms are clean and well appointed. The staff is friendly and very professional from the moment you arrive and are greeted by the valet parking attendance (right next to the hotel), to front desk staff, bartenders, cleaning service and security staff. Would recommend it highly to anyone who is visiting the Philadelphia area on business or pleasure.
