Hotel staff was excellent, polite, anbd very professional. Disappointed housekeeping didnt at least come by to empty garbage cans and refresh towels. Mattress toppers were very uncomfortable. They kept sliding off in the night. Could use improvement.

1st room assignment was unacceptable. Tiny room, tucked in a back corner, huge walk from elevator, view of alley.

Your staff went out of their way to accommodate any request to make our stay enjoyable.

Rebecca S. Families - 04/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

When I first arrived to check in I was told to pay my balance which I have normally done on my checkout day and on top of that there was added fee “security deposit” that I was not told about when I initially booked my reservations. Not only was security deposit on one room but on both rooms I have reserved in addition to that fee there was unknown $100 added to both rooms making my fees $800is for each room instead of the $600 I was originally told on booking, if security deposit was $100, should have been $700 for both rooms so not sure I was asked to pay these amounts as I am just walking in with my family and belongings. Also my rooms were very dark no sunlight, and we all kept sneezing and were congested during our entire stay, not sure if dust or what?! My kids thought there might be a pool available and were disappointed. Overall not what we expected

Dear Rebecca S., Thank you for your feedback following your stay. We are sorry to hear that your stay did not live up to your expectations. Please rest assure that we have shared your comments about the hotel and room with the team. The authorization taken upon check in ($100/night per room) allows our guests to charge incidentals items to the room, such as in-room movie, Food and Beverage, etc. Please rest assure that these were only authorization and they get released upon check out when not used. Sincerely, The Sofitel Team

This hotel couldn't have been better located for all the things we needed. Metro, museums and food! It's DC but still quiet enough for us to enjoy casual strolls and if you run, there are plenty of scenery to motivate extra miles out of you. The breakfast is scrumptious.

It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback concerning our hotel and staff. I will share your comments with our team.

It was not a good experience. It took checking out four rooms before we found one that didn’t smell weird. Room service was not available when we checked in. The shower handle fell off when I used it in the morning. The maintenance service man was very nice and helpful. The hotel was empty, and felt unused and vaguely unclean. We will not stay there again unless the management does some much needed updating.

Somewhat disappointing, will likely not return

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Guest Business - 02/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was surprised that the property has 'slipped' a bit since my last visit. Worn edges/corners on furniture were a surprise for this level of hotel (and ostensibly not attributable to Covid restrictions). The absence of room service, while understandable to a degree given Covid restrictions, would have been less disruptive with some sort of self-service food area (vs having to rely on Uber eats). While the location of the property is quite convenient, I will likely try another hotel, e.g., Four Seasons, during my next stay.

E. Families - 18/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had been looking forward to visiting this hotel again after five years since my last stay. Unfortunately this five star hotel didn’t not live up to its rating. The rooms were tired looking and not very clean, the temperature knob in the shower fell off and parking was five blocks away. It was a disappointing stay and I felt like a three star hotel would have been better. This one had no luxury feel.
