I loved everything about this hotel. Nicest staff, accommodating and flexible, clean rooms, good amenities. I asked for an early check in and they easily accepted it. Location is fantastic, right on 18th and market streets, though no noise front the streets at all. You're close to the business areas, but also to the great cultural and nightlife that Rittenhouse square offers. Amtrak is 12 minutes walk. I've stayed in 8 different hotels in Philly, but the Sonesta take the cake, easily, due to its fair pricing (priceline.com has great prices for this hotel), fantastic location and great rooms/amenities. Will definitely be back.

Hotel's Favorite
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 highly recommend the Sonesta @ 1800 Market Street, especially for families. The rooms are spacious, comfortable (the mattress and bedding were superb) and very clean, the staff was accommodating and friendly, and the manager, Bob, was exceptional. This was our first family trip in years, as well as our first time in Philadelphia - special kudos must be given to Bob and Lead Concierge, Fran, who made this trip delightful and worry-free! They recommended great options for sightseeing (the bus tour is a must!), restaurants and shopping, and even assisted us with travel routes and coordinating transportation (another big thank-you to Paul)! Planning is essential to a successful trip in the city, and these pros know how to take care of their guests! Our Sonesta team was integral to the satisfaction of the most selective guests: our kids. Standards had to be high, given those expectations! Everything was arranged to the smallest detail, and they even remembered our son's birthday! There is so much to see, and the location is fantastic. We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Ruth's Chris on premises, which is always a fine experience. We took advantage of the "breakfast bar" a few mornings, and purchased coffee, juice and danish on our way out to our next big adventure. You can get just about anything you want within a very short walk, from full-service restaurants and specialty shops to dozens of stores and hidden gems. The history speaks for itself and there are plenty of museums to explore. If you're looking for a break in your routine and a vacation destination in a big city, this is perfect - and the Sonesta is at the center of it all! It was a wonderful trip, and we can't wait to visit again soon!

Dear Tobes54, Thank you for your review. We are so pleased to read your comments and well ensure to share with the staff. It's true that we have a great location that is just steps away from restaurants, attractions and museums. Our hotel is family friendly offering all the great things that families need for vacation. Either it be the Art Bar "to go" breakfast which satisfies the morning hunger or a fabulous dinner in Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Then on a top of that, a great nice sleep in a clean, comfortable room. Thanks again for choosing Sonesta Philadelphia. We hope to see you soon!

Great location in center city Philadelphia - so many great restaurants and sights in walking distance. Rooms were clean and fairly spacious for a city hotel. Gave champagne in the lobby on New Years - it was a nice touch, but not sure how safe given the covid spike then. Parking was expensive, but that's to be expensive for the city.

I love this hotel! From the moment I reserve the room until I walk out the door to go home, I'm in wonderful smelling heaven. Lonnie, in housekeeping, is excellent; a true gem; I couldn't imagine not interacting with her at some point during my stay; she honestly makes it all complete. I met Kevina upon my departure; she was so friendly and helpful; I enjoyed her energy. The hotel and the rooms are immaculately clean and smell amazing. The floors shined as if they were wet! The front desk and bell team (a gentleman with locs) were very accommodating. I can not wait to return!
