Property conditions & facilities


6/10 Good

Facial recognition be warned
The property itself was great but there were two giant issues: soundproofing and facial recognition. The building is not soundproofed at all, so the noise both outside from the street and inside from the other units made it impossible to sleep. They provide earplugs but it wasn’t enough. The second issue is that our booking was nonrefundable but there was no warning when we booked that they require biometric facial recognition to check in for the property. You can’t get your money back and you can’t get into the property without checking in by scanning your ID and providing a live biometric facial recognition sample with your phone or computer. It’s annoying for people who aren’t great at technology and enraging for people who care about privacy and surveillance technology. They say that the data are deleted right away but it’s run through a third party (Persona) and there’s no way to know what their protocols actually are.

2/10 Poor

I had a terrible experience at this Sonder, so much so that I would think twice about using them again. I was given a room on the first floor, directly on the street in a pretty desolate block of Philly. I was afraid to go out alone. There was no remote in the room... I called and had one delivered but the television could not be turned on to use the remote. And there is no one around to ask. Not worth it. I'd rather stay elsewhere.

Perfect spot, will Deff stay again.
We had a blast! The area the hotel is located had a parking garage on the same block. The hotel was so clean, and worth every penny. So many coffee shops and restaurants a block or two up.

Overall everything is good. Location is good. Only this was that there was no shower curtain and it took them 2 days for the request. The curtain had a bad odor.
