Pleasant stay, weird smells

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Nice room but there was a very strong plastic smell that gave my husband and I headaches. The mattress topper was also very thick and would get very hot. The hotel is also very close to a homeless camp which has a deranged and rowdy population that would heckle guests on occasion.

StefanescuRo Families - TripAdvisor review

Very bad experience. I arrived at 5th of Aug for 3 nights at 3pm. They told me my room is not ready yet and I have to wait. I stay în the room 902. Old furniture, bad smell, dirthy. Old and stained towels. Nobody help me to carry my luggage. On breakfast was long line în the morning and nobody care to pay attention to us. And is 5 stars hotel. Should be 2 stars only. I will not forget the bad smell when I entered the room. When I claimed on reception all that things I received apologie and again apologies. Shame for Sofitel brand.

Great location near the White House, and yet quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable. Walking distance to the National Mall and the museums. Clean. Perfect temperature regulation. Quiet room. Our only complaint is that housekeeping took towels and didn't replace them. We had to ask for towels.
