I went to Philadelphia for Memorial day weekend and the Sonesta was one of the recommended hotels for the weekend. Being in center city, is has an unassuming exterior, convenient valet parking and a low-key lobby. The pool has a great view, The staff were very pleasant and helpful. One of the cool amenities is a table full of goodies and beverages on one side of the lobby. grab a cookie or pastry and some juice or flavored water as you pass through. They also have the Art Bar and Ruth's Chris Steak House off the lobby. The room was extremely clean, quiet, well-appointed, and the bed was very comfortable. It was a great place to hang out and get refreshed in between afternoon and evening events for the weekend. It is conveniently located for everything from City Hall, I will back soon!
