8.4.Very good.
  • 2.0.Poor

    The room that I got scheduled first was still dirty. Dirty towed everywhere, trash everywhere, bed not made up. Then the second room was nice but it didn’t even have towels for me to take a shower. Had to wait and entire day to get that delivered to my room. For the price, it was not up to par. Would of expect that at a motel 6 or something

    Great location and very nice comfortable room - excellent value for money. However we were disappointed that there were no tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, etc which we’ve had at other Sonder properties.

    Automation Gone Too Far

    When I stay at a hotel, I expect hospitality; despite its cleanliness everything else was lacking. From check-in which requires an additional app, a selfie and other requirements, the stay at Sonder - The Queen, felt very cold and dystopian. Unfortunately, it didn't end there, there were multitudes of cars revving throughout the night, the poorly constructed windows barely able to keep out the noise led to a night of poor sleep. On the second night, the aroma of marijuana was constant leading to a bleeding headache - thankfully, I was solo; with kids, I would have definitely left. If you are looking for a clean bed and don't mind a heartless welcome with accompanying noise or marijuana aroma feel free to stay. For me, this will be my only and last Sonder Stay.

    cool modern clean and secure. But no staff at all. Everything is done remotely - welcome to the future. Their app is a little buggy and the TV is google cast, so you need to preload your favorite channels. Otherwise it is a great location to see the city.

    Lack of front desk not communicated at all. Speed of check in therefore unacceptable. Heater not working and no one available to repair during entire stay.

    Honestly this hotel was BEAUTIFUL! like honestly fell in love with the high ceilings, the whole por poetry in general. Clean, fancy yet chic! Spectacular for photos . Upgraded. Location is EVERYTHING! Extremely centered to the many things philly is known for. Everything is electric including access to inside the property , elevators , rooms , to get extra toilette , etc. The app responds RIGHT AWAY. It’s really convinient . The ONLY downside . Parking . Horrible . Meter monitors walk around. Parking across the street, really expensive for over nights , as are all over night parking in the area. Scared my car would get towed if I parked it overnight on the street side , don’t even think it’s allowed . Don’t be late if you do decide to park on the street for any amount of time . 3 min late you will get ticket .
