Complete your Philly experience at The Edison. This modern building perfectly contrasts the Old City neighborhood — known as the country's most historic square mile. Each space features a Roku for streaming, in-suite laundry, and a fully equipped kitchen. Sip a cup of java on the rooftop with breathtaking panoramic views. Or step outside for farm-to-table pasta and sandwiches at High Street on Market. You can also learn about America's birthplace at Independence Hall, just a quick bus ride away. This property is located next to the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, which produces noise during peak traffic hours. All spaces have a sleep well kit.

Location was quiet, safe, and really easy to locate. Apartment was super clean and super great that it had a washer dryer in the unit. Rooftop was beautiful for sunset. Will definitely stay again! It was easy to walk around town from the apartment as well.

Great place !! It was really quiet. Definitely gonna look at the rooftop Beautiful views. Came up for the weekend!! Wifi is provided, they also provided coffee and soaps. The only thing that I would caution anyone on is the beds are pretty hard so if you need to be on a soft bet then it may not be the best for you. Overall very nice spot and I would 100% stay again

The apartment was very clean, and it had all the essential amenities and more. The building is located close to stores and restaurants. Parking on the street was not a problem, just have to be aware of the street signs. I will definitely stay with Sonder again.

Beautiful condo in a lovely corner of Philadelphia. Walking distance to Franklin Square. The rooftop views were even better than we anticipated. We really appreciated all the little touches left for us in the condo to make our stay more convenient. The first place I've stayed that had enough towels already in the bathroom!

Absolute disaster is all I can say about the Sonder Edison and it wouldn’t surprise me if the rest of their properties are the same. The selling point for the hotel is a great concept, an apartment hotel for those who want the conveniences of home while traveling such as business travelers or families. however I’m pretty sure this is used as long term affordable housing and a party hotel, despite the booking rules specifically not allowing partying. We saw lots of shady activity and security did absolutely nothing about it. Since you can’t get anyone on the phone and there is no staff on property you have to use their app to chat with them. We chatted them 4 times regarding noise from our neighbors. One was a “family” down the hall that easily had at least 8 people in it and was literally a revolving door. Screaming children, yelling adults, banging dishes and slamming doors were constant. The people above us sounded like a troop of elephants doing calisthenics. The construction in this absolute turd of a building is so cheap that you can hear the water from apartments above to the point that it sounds like it’s raining in your room. The front door didn’t close all the way (see picture). Finally at 11 pm we packed up and left for another hotel. The “staff” at the Sonder was good for nothing more than excuses and “we’re working on it”. DO NOT stay at this or any Sonder property under any circumstances!!!!
