    Best option we saw

    This was the nicest venue, one of the more affordable options, and had friendly personnel who were responsive and available to make adjustments on the fly. Very professional and worked well. No issues with the venue or hotel during the wedding.

    Sofitel is THE place in Philadelphia to have guests for a wedding!

    While we did not have our wedding at the Sofitel, it was the hotel we chose for our guests to stay in Philadelphia. And I have to admit, it was absolutely AMAZING! In every single aspect, the Sofitel was perfect. I started talking to Svetlana about a year before our wedding, and at the same time I was in conversations with about 20 other hotels in the city. To my surprise, Sofitel was the ONLY hotel who went out of their way every single time to accommodate all of our requests. Closer to wedding time, I started working with Kristina and Tammy, who were both extremely nice, super responsive to all emails and phone calls, and worked tirelessly to make our wedding weekend one we will never forget. Their professionalism matches the high quality of the hotel! I was so happy to see that all of the rooms were recently renovated, the hotel was extremely clean, the hotel staff was polite to all of our guests the entire weekend, and all of our guests loved the breakfast offered at the Sofitel. I was given a suite which was very spacious. They even brought us a small fridge to put some wedding flowers and brought me scissors when I needed them! These small details make the world of difference. The Sofitel even gave us chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne! To top it off, nothing beats the location of the Sofitel in Center City. It is in the heart of the city near Rittenhouse Square, and is walking distance to a lot of shops and restaurants, including the Capital Grill where we had our rehearsal dinner. Sofitel even has amazing valet service who went out of their way the entire weekend when guests needed taxis to get to our wedding venue and to/from the Airport or the 30th Street Train Station. Collectively, we could not have picked, or hoped for, a better hotel for our guests to stay for our wedding! I STRONGLY recommend the Sofitel as the place to stay in Philadelphia if you are having a wedding. You won’t regret it, we sure did not. Thank you again Sofitel staff and management for making our wedding weekend one we will NEVER forget!

    Intimate wedding at the Sofitel, Philadelphia

    My husband and I got married at Sofitel Philadelphia with an intimate wedding cocktail and reception. We had only two months between our engagement and wedding, and despite the short amount of time we could see several venues in Center City, Philadelphia. Sofitel stood out from others with its spacious wedding venue which was the right size for our small party. We had the cocktail, ceremony and reception all in the same room. Starting from the first day of planning, Michael Mitloff has been very kind, understanding, attentive and professional. He has always greeted us with a big smile at the lobby and managed every detail with such efficiency. He understood our needs and directed us to a great photographer and floral designer. He reserved us a great couple’s suite to get ready on the day of the wedding. Our guests praised the attentiveness of the staff on the wedding day and they even said that they had the best wedding dinner. It was very delicious! We should also mention that Valerie and Amir have been very helpful and kind during the reception. Everything moved very smoothly throughout the night even though we requested a couple changes in the wedding program at the last minute. Now looking back, we think that our wedding couldn’t been any better and we are so happy that we made the best decision by choosing the Sofitel in Center CIty, Philadelphia.
