Excellent Staff

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

June P TripAdvisor review

We had a great, albeit rainy, spring break trip to DC. Our hotel room (a junior suite) was perfect for the four of us. Special shout out to Million for being extremely helpful, happily enthusiastic, and engaging with our children; to Paul, for being a wonderful, attentive, and patient server; and to Aiden for all of the insider info. The front desk staff was also very accommodating with coordinating housekeeping (pull-out couch turn down service) and a few Shipt orders from Target. 100% will visit again.

Dear Junep848, Thank you so much for the wonderful TripAdvisor review. we love to see that you had an excellent stay and that the staff went above and beyond for you. We will ensure to share your feedback with the team, especially with Paul, Million and Hayden as this is exactly what we thrive for every day. We very much look forward to welcoming you back soon to our property. The Sofitel Team

Very poor experience for a 5* hotel and at the price per.night The Urban Resort fee which is compulsory is a total Con !!! These additional extras which you have no choice if you want them or not be complimentary for the most part

All We Needed

I stayed for a work trip and found the staff EXTRA accommodating. They provided a complementary room switch after expressed concerns about the natural light in my room (as I was going to be there for 7 days it was a concern, one that that I was ready to deal with but they stepped up!), the food was delicious, daily housekeeping (by really nice staff!), solid gym with water & towels, and ideal location. Front desk staff were always helpful & responsive. Really, really excellent all around!

Dear Mrs. R.-Guerrero, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square. We are so happy to read that the team went above and beyond to make your long stay enjoyable and that you enjoyed the room, food, gym and location! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Great room with sketchy service

Tonya N. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

My stay was brief but I had to call numerous times my first morning for a dental kit and tea. Then the cleaning crew cleaned the room but didn’t leave any new towels, despite taking all my dirty towels. Last the bill, I called to ask if my bill Courbet emailed to me. I was told it was no problem. I never received my final bill. I had to submit an email request for it. I’ve never had a hotel make you request your final bill. It’s always emailed automatically. This is incredibly inconvenient because I was traveling for work and it prevents me from submitting all of my receipts in a timely manner. So I wouldn’t feel comfortable recommending this hotel to my colleagues.

Dear Tonya n., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow us to express our sincerest apologies. We strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, The Sofitel Team
