Photos and Review by Investigators


  • Rooms start at 350 square feet and have 37-inch flat-screen TVs
  • Stylish restaurant and lounge serves French-inspired fare
  • Bathrooms have separate showers and tubs
  • 22-hour room service and 24-hour fitness center
  • Turndown service with free bottle of Evian

Bottom Line

The most notable feature at this elegant Sofitel near Rittenhouse Square Park is the sleek restaurant and lounge, Liberte. Light wood details and plush white beds make the rooms refined and comfortable, but they lack the striking boutique style of the Palomar across the street.
