The Sonesta Philadelphia Downtown is located in lovely Rittenhouse Square, and features deluxe guestrooms with complimentary Wi-Fi. Some rooms also have mini-fridges for storing snacks and beverages. There’s a Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and signature bar (ArtBar) onsite, and in the summer, families can cool off in the rooftop swimming pool. While there’s no fitness center onsite, passes to a nearby gym are provided to all guests.
The Sonesta Philadelphia Downtown is located just 1.5 miles from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, a must-visit during your family trip to Philadelphia. Valet parking (fee) is available at the hotel.

On last Wednesday I unfortunately was stuck in center city after work because all the trains were delayed because of the storm. I just wanted to give kudos to the bartenders Nachele and Franklin who obviously got hit with a ton of customers but handled like professionals. It seemed extremely counterproductive that they had to keep leaving the restaurant to go to the kitchen to pick up food when there were so many guests that were ordering nonstop. Nonetheless this team delivered great service under a ton of pressure!!!! Kudos P.s if you ever dine at this bar try the avocado hummus!!!
The pool was very nice but check with front desk to ensure they are not holding any events for the date of your visit. There was an event on Saturday when we checked in and half of the pool area was occupied. Rooms are basic and beds are comfortable.
