Very friendly staff, warm inviting lobby, quick check-in and a very clean, comfortable room, made for a relaxing stay. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms quiet. The only negative, and it is LARGE, is the main floor Art bar breakfast. It took almost a half hour for our table of 4 to receive our fruit cups/ yogurt/ bagels...

Stayed for 1 night following the 15K race on 4/1/17. Staff was helpful and courteous; parking was convenient and not too expensive. Room was quiet and spotless. Great location within walking distance to many attractions and dining options. Philadelphia is a wonderful city to visit. If traveling there, The Sonesta is a great place to stay.

The Sonesta was recommended by our travel planner. The price was great and the staff far exceeded expectations, from the daily notes from our housekeeper to the front desk staff making calls and finding us dinner reservations at amazing restaurants! It was a great stay! We'll definitely be back!!
