Contactless aspect was pretty easily navigated, customer service was also on point through the app. Fairly quiet neighborhood with lots of places to eat and shop at nearby.

Check in process was so easy and smooth. I like my room too. The only thing is there is no parking. Finding a free parking is almost impossible. Other than that, I didn’t have any issue with Sonder.

Nice place to stay. Basic, clean, safe, and convenient to many sites if you’re up to putting your steps in to explore Society Hill, Old City, Italian Market, etc., as well as the usual must see sites of Philly like Tomb of Unknown Soldier, Independence Hall, etc. Recommend you download the Sonder app prior to your arrival and familiarize yourself with how things work with this new kind of DIY hotel stay. Most everything you’ll need to know is covered within the app. I would stay here again.
