The property is well maintained, the amenities/supplies were well thought of and of high quality. It was our first time to stay at this property and it exceeded my expectations. I will now be looking for Sonder as a great alternative to hotel stays.

The air conditioner was broken. Upon arrival, the staff came to the room to check on the AC after noticing it was so hot when preparing the room. So, the issue with how disgustingly hot this apartment was, was known to Sonder and staff before my arrival. After an unbearable, sleepless night at a humid 80 degrees, hotel staff sent maintenance to fix the AC the next morning. Maintenance advised the AC was broken because the "computer" from the room to the roof unit wasn't communicating. Maintenance reset the computer -- this did nothing. The room continued to circulate the same hot air in a closed HVAC system. Finally, for the second night, Sonder approved a new room. which I moved to. The AC worked great, no issues. AC was also working in publish spaces -- so this issue was room specific. It is my belief Sonder knew the AC was broken, and likely has been for some time, yet still rented it to me. I would not be surprised if today, someone else is in that room with a broken AC. It's unacceptable and really ruined by first night in Philly.
