Sonder at the Tidewater was just what we needed. It is located steps away from many amazing museums. Sonder communicated very effectively and made check in and check out easy and contactless on their app. The rooms were spacious with big windows with beautiful city views. The apartment came with a full kitchen and washer and dryer which was convenient. It was clean and modern. Highly recommend!

Our recent stay at Tidewater was wonderful. My fiancé and I spent the weekend here for a Valentine's Day getaway. We enjoyed an amazing view of the Ben Franklin Parkway all while taking in the comforts of a cute apartment. The space was clean and very modern - it was the prefect size for the two of us. We were within walking distance of both restaurants we dined at - of which there were no shortage of in this area of the city. We also took advantage of the full kitchen, making breakfast one morning. Sonder made it very easy to book, access, and check out of our room - all digitally! We will definitely look to Sonder the next time we stay in Philadelphia - or any other city we may travel to!
