Great Location

My friend and i planned an overnight trip in Philly. The hotel was close to some tourist attractions (City Hall, RTM, Love Park) and was walking distance to numerous bars, restaurants and 30th Street station. Only stayed one night so we didn't get to utilize the Park and Stay package (free parking, 2 ice skating rink passes, attractions pass, $25 gift card for Garces) The room was very spacious. Really appreciated having our bags stored with the bellhop so we didn't have to lug them around Saturday morning. George at the front desk was very helpful. I would stay here again.

A good hotel over all. I just didn't see any thing that wow'd me. The hotel room was clean, The staff seem to go above and beyond when you are a Sonesta reward card member. Everyone was friendly. The location of the hotel was perfect for sight seeing, shopping, Eating, or hanging out for a night of fun. Philadelphia is always a great place to visit so you can always find something to do in its downtown area with great eats for us vegan folks. This hotel didn't offer many vegan option on the room service menu. I wanted vegan burger or Philly famous vegan sub. Most of the time i used Grub Hub ( whe i wasn't out eating) to deliver from a local restaurant with vegan options. Would i come back ? yes i would and i am a Sonesta reward member. Hopefully when i return the pool will be open. I would like to do a review once the pool opens. I'm curious to how well its kept, how big it is and if it loos as good as the pictures. Thank You Sonesta
