The place was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Very quiet, nice place to have a relaxing mini getaway. My first time being in Philly so the parking and driving was very overwhelming. The basement closet didn’t have any extra towels and had issues with access code in the elevators but other than that the stay was nice. I would definitely stay again or recommend to a friend.

It was hard to get used to the first day, with no service staff around, but once you get used to that, it's a great experience.

Very nice property. It doesn't have a lobby and all communications are via text message and email. If you're cool about it, then you'll be good to go. Would definitely go back. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Recommended!

Chic and stylish
We stayed here the night of our wedding. The hotel was new and clean and very stylish. The bed could have been softer, but everything else was wonderful. I felt bad for the restaurant workers who became the default check-in helpers (they're not employed by the hotel and can't help) but it was otherwise a great property.

The Sonder is beautiful! The space is well laid out, and the room was clean, comfy, and modern. It's nice that you only need a code for check in - and that you can request early/late check in or out on the app - but using a code for the front door, every interior door, plus room door is a bit excessive. If there is a way to generate a more memorable code that is unique to a given guest that would be helpful. Overall we had a great stay!
