We had an absolutely amazing time at our wedding at the Sofitel and I would highly recommend that anyone else getting married in the city of Philadelphia considers them! I initially was hesitant about having our wedding at a hotel since I didn’t want that “cookie cutter” feel. We visited several different venues in Center City Philly (some were hotels and others were just venues with an outside catering service and event staff). From our first meeting with the Sofitel we knew it had the best to offer of both worlds, a convenient, central location, hotel location+ amenities as well as a nice, upscale atmosphere. The package that the Sofitel offers is extremely clear and lays out exactly what you get for the price you are paying. Whenever we had a special request for something, they accommodated us with no extra hassle or charge, which I know a lot of other venues won’t do. The package is VERY reasonable price-wise for what it includes and I honestly don’t think we could have gotten anything else near the value we paid for the service level and day-of benefits that we received. It was so nice to know exactly what we were getting for what we were paying and not have to factor in additional costs if we wanted to tweak something, as I know a lot of my friends have complained about for their weddings. Lisa DeLuca, the banquet manager, was also super accommodating and very easy to work with. She ensured that everything went smoothly, from our meetings to discuss details, to the wedding day itself. I cannot say enough about this venue and you should definitely see what they have to offer!

Our wedding on 10/29/16, was unbelievably amazing at the Sofitel. I immediately fell in love with the event/wedding planners at the Sofitel- Lisa Deluca & Patricia Mcdonald! They're AMAZING! Lisa Deluca, the wedding coordinator, spent MANY hours working with my family and I on making this day perfect. The staff were so responsive and accommodating- helped us make our "Hallowedding" as unique, personal as we wanted it. We truly felt like the main event at the Sofitel that night. On the day of, I got ready with my wedding party in the Presidential Suite (GORGEOUS & HUGE).We have amazing pics of getting ready-some of my favorite from that day. The Sofitel did many personal touches for our "Hallowedding" throughout the evening. We received SOO many compliments-the food was out of this world-both cocktail hr and reception! The Sofitel went above and beyond for me to create "my dream"-a room FULL of desserts-pie station, sundae station, cookies, cake, and trick or treat" candy bags. The dessert room was unreal.
I have to give a special shout out to IRINA, Banquet Director, who is sweet, adorable, and helped make the night perfect, & to DASHMIR, our personal attendant throughout the weekend.He was PHENOMENAL!
I am still on a wedding high and will be for a while. My family and I recommend the Sofitel 100%. Sofitel will take care of you and make your vision come to life. Thank you LISA, PATRICIA, & SOFITEL for making us an unforgettable wedding- it was the best day of our lives.

The Sofitel team did an outstanding job at our wedding on Saturday evening 10/22/2016. Lisa Deluca went out of her way to make this the most amazing day of our life. We were blown away by her attention to detail and her dedication to please us in every possible way. She assured us that everything will go smoothly and that she will deliver our vision and SHE DID! Even more, the evening became a stress-free fairytale. We can't thank her enough and couldn't recommend this venue more. Everything was so perfect! Wedding at Sofitel was as magical as it could get. The room was transformed into a dreamy romantic place. The waiters and staff were attentive and always there for every need to the point that it truly blew our mind. The food was incredible, largest shrimp we've ever seen! This evening was unforgettable. It really doesn't get better then Sofitel and Lisa and her team. Also, special thank you to Valerie, Lisa's right hand, who was there every step of the way to ensure everything goes as planned. Valerie, you are incredible!
Thank you Sofitel!

If you want to feel like a princess on your wedding day – you MUST book The Sofitel! They are simply amazing. I knew the minute I met with Michael over a year ago that The Sofitel was special. Michael, unlike other venues, embraced our wedding vision (cocktail party style).

During the year of pre-planning, Lisa & Valerie, went above and beyond. They did whatever was necessary to help us bring our vision to life including figuring how to seat 200 people in the Paris Foyer for the ceremony! Every question & concern was immediately answered. The attention to detail including food allergies was refreshing & I knew that no matter what it would be a great wedding & it was!

Lisa & Valerie had everything under control during our wedding weekend - even finding shoes for my mother 45 minutes before the ceremony! During the reception, everything was handled so beautifully & seamlessly! I am still blown away. The food was amazing & our guests have not stopped raving!

The attention to the little details really is what stands out for me. Whenever I met with Lisa & Valerie at the hotel – Michael made it a point to be there to say hello. Lisa & Valerie were in constant communication not just with me but my vendors. They would email me just to check in to see HOW I was doing especially as the big day approached! Valerie being there when we dropped off the dropped off the gift bags & other items for the wedding. And finally, having a server assigned to the bride & groom solely to cater to your needs – these are just a few of the many little touches that make The Sofitel special.

Choosing to have our wedding at the Sofitel was one of the best decisions ever! Throughout the yearlong process, we were never made to feel like a nameless client but friends. Thank you to everyone at the Sofitel for making our wedding such a special and wonderful experience. I cannot recommend the Sofitel highly enough!

The Sofitel is unparalleled in terms of service, sophistication, and quality. From the start, Valerie (one of two main POCs for brides and grooms) walked us through every single step and detail of planning our wedding and I felt as though we were in great hands. From the tasting, where each member of the planning team walked us through the menu and options for the cocktail hour, to the week-of meeting, where each member of the highly skilled team went out of their way to meet us- I was impressed to say the least.

During the reception, everything was handled so beautifully and seamlessly! I am still blown away. During the night of, a server is assigned to the bride and groom solely to cater to your needs and those of your immediate family. He was there to relay any information I needed, and keep things flowing smoothly. I didn't have a care in the world the night of the wedding!

My guests raved about the food, rooms, quality of the bar and servers, and overall atmosphere. You can't do better than the Sofitel in Philadelphia. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Sofitel has inclusive wedding packages. They have a wide selection of food (from Hors d'Oeuvres to dinner entree) to beverage. The bride and groom will receive a complimentary suite the evening of the wedding. My fiance (now husband) and I were very happy with our staying at Sofitel for our wedding. The staff was very helpful and nice with outstanding service.

Fabulous in every way – the hotel, the service, the location, the amenities provided! I just cannot say enough. Our daughter was married at the Sofitel three weeks ago, and I cannot say enough about how happy I am with the decision to have it there. In shopping venues – we decided a hotel was best with so many out of town guests. We were down to two hotels in the Rittenhouse area. The decision for the Sofitel was based on three elements: 1. Lisa Strickland, with whom we felt a great comfort level,
2. the food (Lisa had the chef prepare a complementary dinner for us to experience their farm to table freshness, exquisitely prepared with magnificent presentation and taste, and last but not least 3. the contemporary, light, bright and very comfortable guest rooms. The Presidential/Bridal Suite was huge, very comfortable for the 15 women having hair and makeup done pre-wedding (with 2 make-up artists & 2 hair stylists enjoying natural light with walls of windows). We are thrilled with our decision. Everything went flawlessly, changeovers of rooms/tables/florals/lighting were inconspicuous. From beautifully set up ceremony to the fabulous cocktail hour, the gorgeous reception for which their staff worked seamlessly with our incredible florist, Carl Alan Floral– we were thrilled to be at Sofitel. Our special thanks to Lisa Strickland, who knows her job! She is phenomenal with details, and very easy to deal with. Thanks to Svetlana for keeping us up to date on our room blocks, to Irina for working so hard behind the scene on day of, and to the hotel management for working out a very fair solution when there was a room block issue.

Choosing to have our wedding at the Sofitel was one of the best decisions in the planning process. The venue and location were ideal, also the staff was attentive. Lisa Strickland is the best wedding coordinator. She knows her industry including local vendors and is a leader in the area. Lisa is on point from day one and is extremely caring and flexible. She was completely accessible, especially on the wedding day to troubleshoot details including printing out last minute stationary for the farewell brunch to insuring both the ceremony and reception went as scheduled. We felt the entire staff at Sofitel made our wedding an important event and priority on their list. All my interactions with Lisa, I didn't feel like a client but a friend was in charge of coordinating my wedding.
