Convenient location Helpful Staff

We stayed at this hotel for one day to tour independence Hall, The reading terminal, The American Jewish Museum and the Mutter Museum. The hotel is conveniently located in the middle of all of this activity so we parked our car once and walked to everything. Even after checkout, they secured our baggage and valet was included until 6 pm that day, while we finished touring. The hotel also offers a huge discount on parking. The hotel was comfortable and modern. Room service until pretty late at night - and the food was delicious!

Good downtown location

Brighton, Michigan

The Sonesta has a great downtown location in the Rittenhouse Square area. It is very good for business stays. There are a lot of dining and watering hole options in the immediate area. The rooms are narrow and on the smallish side, typical for many large-city downtown hotel properties; with that in mind, the room was more than adequate for my stay and in great shape, being both clean, and comfortable. There are very good charging options at the workdesk, which was a bit narrow, but served its purpose. The lounge downstairs is trendy, and the hotel staff very friendly. It should be noted that Ruth's Chris is connected directly to the hotel lobby. Overall, not a bad business stay (or two or three) here!
